Marisa was true too her word. I responded and she set me up with a linode running Ubuntu server that had a pocketmud base running and a generic site with Joomla configured that I could modify to my hearts content. All of my questions were answered with alacrity and clarity. I'll have more to say about it after I use it a bit more, but so far, so good!

If you cancel your subscription you will get a TAR file and mysql dump of your MUD so you can host it elsewhere...
