Hey guys, as some of you may have noticed, hl2files.com stopped providing free hosting to mods. Fortunately, we had plenty of notice, so we were able to back-up the site. This week, we finally got set-up with a new, paid hosting provider. Because our new site isn’t finished yet, we restored our backup of the old site to this server.
Our new hosting provider is Dreamhost, and they provide a ton of
awesome features. For one, our source code can now be stored on our own
server, where we have 50gb of storage and a bandwidth cap I can’t ever
see us exceeding.
Other new features we now have access to is a wordpress blog
(blog.dinoinstinct.com, where I plan on talking about more than just
the latest DinoInstinct news. We can have some interviews with members
of the team, etc).
Perhaps one of the more interesting features is an open-source
project management program called dotProject. Hopefully, it will help
us get more organized and make better use of our time, especially as
the team grows and organization becomes more challenging.
I can’t give an ETA on the new site as I am not the webmaster, but
we’re working on it. From the rough-draft I’ve seen, I can assure you
the new site will be awesome.
