    I like http://www.fanforcepittsburgh.com best.

    I don't recommend Namezero if you're considering that. The domain name may be free, but that huge ad bar at the bottom is unforgivable.

    I recommend Domainzero's pay service, because it's a domain AND host (and no ad bar of course). It's $13 or $20 a month, depending on how much traffic you want (3 gig or 5 gig, I think 3 is sufficient so that'd be $13 a month). You get 500 megs storage space, which is great. I think we could probably pool together the funds pretty easily, $13 is not much at all and we'd all be able to use it.

    EDIT: I can't spell AT ALL.

    I'm typing up a letter that I'm going to send out different stores and such. Hopefully someone will donate the money we need. The first one I'm sending out is to Phantom of the Attic, I used to hang there alot when I was addicted to playing Magic. I'm hoping they can get the ball started.

    I learned my lesson with Namezero, I don't think I'll ever use them again. Plus they took away one of my domains I was using because I used javascript to get rid of the banner. I'll probably go with my old host 11net.com. They give give you 60 mb for 6.99 a month. But I'll check into domainzero.

    What about just PittsburghForce.net. I wish I wouldn't have used NameZero in the first place. I was going to register a domain and now I can't get it out of NameZero's clutches unless I pay $50 for transfer fees, plus all the other fees.

    And Rox, which Phantom? I used to hang out at the Parkway Center one all the time when I played Magic for the Arena league. I also know the owner and most of his employees.

    Namezero is okay. There are worse things than that, like Homestead.

    The Phantom in parkway center. i figure comic, hobby shops are the best places to start to get sponsored. But if you know the owner maybe it would be better if you asked them.
