FANDOM


The TCG Community is rather tight-knit and many kind domain owners offer free TCG and trade post hosting to the community. These hosts are ideal for those looking to get started playing TCGs as well as veteran players who wish to get out of Livejournal, Dreamwidth or free website builders that are bogged down with ads.

We have a reference list for anyone that is looking for a host. Notes about each host are sometimes included. If you are a host and would like your domain to be listed here, feel free to just edit the page and add your URL.

All information on this list is taken from hosting applications and feedback from hosts/hostees.

Finding the Right HostEdit

Probably one of the most important things to note is the "new user-friendly" note for each host. This is there to notify if it is an optimal domain for users with no knowledge of coding, scripts, or running websites.

If you are a more experienced user with good website knowledge and don't need your hand to be held as much, it might be a good idea to consider some hosts that are looking specifically for experienced hostees. The opposite applies for those whom are inexperienced and need more help.

It's important to consider these factors and thoroughly read through a host's page before submitting an application.

Host ListEdit

The host list is in alphabetical order. Do keep in mind that some hosts offer the option to pick from multiple domain names.

I will list all current hosts that host TCG projects, even if they are currently closed for hosting. This page won't be the most up-to-date, I imagine, so those hosts could end up opening hosting again in the future—it doesn't hurt to check.
