Soon I will be getting another server box online in the datacentre, which will have some spare resources which I’m going to use for small slot private server sprimarily to be used for coder or scripters to test there scripts on a live server environment. My initial ideas consist of either making them free but with some limitations and possibly a cycle time, where the server is released back into the free pool after a month of use.
The server’s would get there own MySQL and would have full access to a TcAdmin panel and FTP.
My main concerns are how would I stop the same people having the free servers all the time and to give lots of people an equal opportunity to have usage.
I’m looking for ideas/suggestions and to gauge the interest of such a service for coders.
-Edit- More info will be added when the machine is assembled and shipped to the maidenhead datacentre.
