    I have read the tutorials on how to install and run a custom Shoddy Battle server, and the results have turned out great! However, my only computer is a lap top that I carry everywhere and the various locations where I do have an internet connection are not fast enough to support an ongoing server, and are shared with family or friends. I have no problem in paying for web hosting somewhere, and if I do so, is it possible to run a Shoddy Battle server from such an address remotely? Any help, whether there is already a tutorial or if someone can point me in the right direction, would be very appreciated.

    Thank you!

    You can run this off a Virtual Private server (Http://www.hostgator.com Or http://www.zipservers.com), Or a dedicated server (For shoddy, VPS is better).

    I recommend using hostgator, as you may have to pay for managed support on Zipservers.
    If you want help setting it up, I do specialize in Linux Administration, and you may PM me if you want it setup.

    Good luck, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
