Get Hosted at GameVisions

The GameVisions Network provides hosting services for sites that meet set guidelines and follow all rules, regulations, and requirements set out by the network and its hosting administration. These rules and requirements are an adaptation from the -- general affiliateship agreement, as to not conflict with their requirements. Be cool, get hosted at GameVisions!

-- Check out what you'll get!

Hosting Guidelines
Your site must have a unique design, and offer a unique service. Sites may range from fan sites, development/editing sites, or other types of sites. GameVisions reserves the right to reject any site propositions for any reason, or without given reason.

Sites must be updated in a timely manner. That does not mean once every two weeks. We mean OFTEN. As you have likely noticed, many gaming and hardware magazines don't offer hosting services. Having come through the ranks ourselves, we understand the need to find a good source to be connected with, but a lot of work also comes with the territory of being associated with a large mass-market site. We accept only the best of ideas, so try to make it a good one. Don't be afraid to try, either, what may seem not great to you, may very well be the next best thing to hit the web!

All sites must have a large viewing audience. We won't give a speciffic number, because every different type of site has a good adequate number. Statistics on unique, as well as total hits preferable. We don't want some second rate "I did it overnight" sites, you site must have a thorough design. While having a cult-following is always nice, we also realize the difficulty for an up-and-coming site just hitting the market, and will certainly consider hosting them. All sites submitted for recommendation must have a complete, or near-complete design and format, as well as expected ratings, and target audience.

Your submission for application signifies that you agree with the rules set forth here. You will be asked to confirm that you have read and agree to these terms. Also note that both GameVisions and -- reserve the right to terminate your site without notice for any reason, or without given reason. Also note that you do not recieve any money for ad banners. It takes money for GIN and GameVisions to keep the servers and the sites going, and therefore, at the level of a "hosted" (non-network affiliated) there is not enough revenue generated to warrant fees. The purpose of the GameVisions Network hosting program is for smaller sites and fan sites who do not pull off enough ratings to warrant a major network affiliateship to find a place that offers everything they need to run a gaming site, free of charge, and within their own community. Put it this way, what we offer sure beats some lengthy GeoCities URL that will nary be found :).
