unity 2 hosting now available

i'm pleased to announce that FlashTampa is now offering affordable monthly Unity 2 hosting. FlashTampa will install and run Unity 2 Multiuser Server for you, and will even set up MySql on your account so you can take advantage of Unity 2's built-in client registration, login, and attribute storage features. now you can create complex multiuser Flash applications (such as chat and networked games) entirely with ActionScript, without touching a server, and without knowing Java or any other server-side language.

here's the official announcement from jayson hanes, president of FlashTampa. congratulations jayson! this should really help Flash developers create engaging multiuser content...

We've recently made hosting for U2 a reality for the masses! (both rented and owned U2
licensing): recently became a Unity Host Provider!

We don't just offer Unity hosting, but also offer most of the typical stuff as zillions of other companies do -- but with personal service! (we have been doing so for years; just not as "public" as the other fish in the sea)

Here's a quick example of U2 or custom application hosting (there are many options and/or combinations):

$10 Setup fee, +$10 a month.. means you can get up and running for $20!!
(assuming you already have a U2 license bought from; we just need to install it for you).. you don't even need your own domain!

Want to Rent a Unity2 Express Licence (HLR)? You can do it for as little as $12/month extra! You could be up an running with U2 EXPRESS (up to 100 users) for as little as $32 for the 1st month, and $22 a month thereafter! 50MB of webspace included.

We offer U2 hosting on Windows 2003 servers - and with U2 uADMIN and your own private http:// (webspace) via direct FTP, you'll have all the control you need to get you or your client's Unity stuff up and running quickly!

As fellow developers, we've been working with Unity since the beta-days of Unity1, and we know what it takes to ensure that your Unity instance is up and running with zero defects! ...not to mention we're also quick on our technical support follow-ups :)

**ALSO** A special offer to the uDEV world: We have 3 Extra SERVERS available for dedicated month-to-month rental. They are: P4 1.7Ghz 500MB of RAM with at least 20GB of storage and one Static IP each. Windows
2000 Server installed + SQL 2000, and you'd get complete Administrative control via Terminal Services: Starting @ $100/month with no contract!

Add a U2 PRO HLR for $17 a month and you're set for your most demanding multi-user project! (if you can upload it, yes, you can install it: the possibilities are endless!).. if you have been thinking about a dedicated server without the hassle or cost -- now is the time to act!

We don't have an end-to-end automated "Hosting Order" system setup and running just yet, but the preliminary order process is good to go.. just click the link and choose your interest.. we'll get back to you shortly with the next step!

We accept Paypal, Visa and M/C (with faxed signature). Turnaround for completed orders with full setup is usually a couple of hours or less.

FlashTampa owns all its own equipment and network infrastructure under one roof; our internet service is via T1's to a major provider here in the South Eastern US -- we don't host 1,000's of sites bogging down shared T3's... we have a handful of sleepy sites sipping little bandwidth with tons of space available!

If you have any questions, please email:

...its all about familiar people getting what you need to get done, done, and at a fair price!
