UPGRADING SERVERS! (donations welcome!)

There are currently a few issues with COD4 servers, and hardware is from years ago, so an upgrade is long overdue. We can do this with the current hosting, so IPs for existing games stays the same. It is also possible to get additional hosting if needed. Hardware must be capable of running a bit more than required, so there is room for extra load and possible additional game servers.

Most suitable for this, regarding price/performance ratio, is Intel Xeon E3-12xx series (v2+ preferably) or some good i7 offer. Today you can get initial E3-127x offers for $99-$109/month, but we can get a special deal for only $79.99/mo! The only condition is to pay 6 months in advance, there is also additional yearly discount, but the difference is minimal. On top of that we can get even better setup for a little more, but this largely depends on your contributions.

Right now the minimum for 6-month payment is $479, with an option to get more power for ~$550-590:
You can donate via PayPal here: donate.html
- you can use different cards, even if you are not registered with PayPal
- if you prefer to use any other payment method, let me know

Feel free to post info about your donation below, or remain anonymous.

Update: month-to-month payment we got is $109 right now, 6-month prepayment the best option.

Keep in mind, above numbers are total $ needed to upgrade servers. We also need to pay hosting with existing hardware, so in case we get less, we keep running things as before.

6 months will be over in a few days, so donations would be welcome, in order to prepay for another 6 months we need $479 (79.99 x 6) for the base price + extras, which amounts to approx. 550 USD.

In case that's not possible we can maintain the same setup for $99/mo. It all depends on your contributions, all of which are much appreciated!

To make something clear, info above is total expenses. Donations can be lower, of course. :)

Those who donate $50 or more can also get their GUID whitelisted, which means you are immune to auto-ban or admins having a bad day. Of course, whitelisting is not a free pass to cheat/hax.

Thanks SgtSkidmarks, much appreciated! :)

I can guarantee you, if the worst happens you get your money back - no question about it. Right now everything is still rather low, otherwise i would remove that notice by now.

Welcome!

A few hundred (total) to prepay for 6-month period, otherwise we pay month-to-month, which is a bit more expensive. Basically, numbers from the first post. I also cover the rest, but it can add up over time.
