Additionally, it seems like we're at 83% capacity for file count on bluehost. We intend to continue offering this until we hit 90%
That being said, this doesn't mean that once we hit 90%, the offer will be closed. If you're interested in helping in some way, please click here for more info.

THE FILE HOSTING DEAL
I've finally set up http://download.vnovel.com
The site is a phpBB forum that allows attachments of unlimited size.
What this means is that you can now host your games or other VN related files, however big, on this site. That being said, if you expect an insane number of downloads, you'll want to look into other mirrors as well, since it's possible that you might crash the server. (Basically, don't make Katawa Shoujo and host it there )
The forum allows you to track the number of downloads, which is pretty spiffy. Anyone can download files from the site, but only members of the "Uploader" group can upload files and post. For more details, check out the site itself.
THE WEBSITE DEAL
Alright, here's basically what's happening (Leon wrote it well, so I copy pasted )
What you get:
1. Free hosting.
Hosting is rented with a reliable hosting company. You get unlimited bandwidth and disk space. If you have your own domain, hosting will be provided on your domain. You can stay for as long as you want and leave whenever you like.
2. Optional: Free subdomain on subdomain.vnovel.com.
I strongly recommend that you buy your own domain. With your own domain, you will start building a website on your own property. If you can't or don't wish to buy a domain, you can select any subdomain on vnovel.com.
3. A website or a blog ready to use - just add content.
Wordpress CMS (content management system) is very easy to use and flexible. You can use it as a simple static site, a blog or use plugins to change it into something else (maybe a photo-gallery?).
If you are a designer and you wish to build your website from scratch, you will get file access trough FTP. If you are a programmer, PHP and MySQL are supported. Just ask, if you need anything else. You can install a forum, wiki, ...
Quick summary for those who hate reading: Free hosting and if you don't have a domain name, a free subdomain, as long as it conforms to certain requirements. Also looking for people that want to help. It'd be best if you read on for more details.
So, at this point, I'm offering to share and give free hosting to anyone who wants to create a website relating to VNs (like an art portfolio, game reviews, a dev page, those sorts of things). At this point, I've got the most unlimited plan with Godaddy and can host as many URLs as I want.
I'm also looking for people interested in helping, whether it's offering your own hosting, cool domain name (for creating subdomains), or your programming skills (mine are nonexistent). I've got some help, but more is better.
The following are just guidelines. Your sites will be screened, and sites will be hosted according to my discretion (and the other participating members').
There are acceptable things:
18+ content (it still has to relate to VNs, and you have to be sure to warn users, because we don't want kiddies stumbling on your site and popping their eyes right out of their head)
Activism (it has to relate to VNs, and just because I'm hosting you doesn't mean that I agree with your views)
Fan Games (nothing that steals assets directly from something such as music or art, and I will remove anything that gets complaints from the companies that own the original content)
These are not acceptable things:
Illegal stuff (Pirated stuff, underage people doing things they shouldn't be doing, etc.)
Incredibly hateful things (To my discretion, and including racism and all that bad stuff)
At the moment, subdomains are available for the following sites:
(If you have your own that I'd be able to add to this list, that'd be awesome! )
6/9/2012 - All sites are subject to being disabled temporarily if I receive a takedown notice. If you run a forum, you have the option of adding me as an admin, so I can handle any issues that may come up with forum content, otherwise, I may have to take your forum down temporarily, until problems can be addressed. If you were to choose to create an account for me, it would be solely for that purpose, and I wouldn't make any posts or anything like that. Odds are, I wouldn't even check unless something came my way You can send the information to me via email. My email is the same as my username, and it's at gmail.
8/15/2012 - download.vnovel.com is set up. Create an account and request to join the "Uploader" group to have permissions.
10/2/2012 - turns out you're going to have to contact me for files around and above 200mb, as they won't necessarily upload directly through the forum. (may no longer be relevant with new host)
6/2013 - made the change to the new host (bluehost) from the old host (godaddy)
