RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA (March 01, 2010) - Welcome to the new Half-Life Gaming website. The aging PHP backend has been replaced with ASP.NET C# 3.5/4.0. The backend for the site was originally done about ten years ago and was starting to show its age. If you have not heard, Half-Life Gaming and edgeNetwork are splitting ways. Half-Life Gaming thanks Shawn Harkin for the years of patience and support in providing countless websites hosting over the past decade.
To put it simply, there is no money in hosting websites for free. IGN shut down all free hosted sites last year for this very reason. Half-Life Gaming is in a position now to help keep a part of gaming history alive and well. For that reason we are going to keep Half-Life Gaming open for the foreseeable future.
Over the next few weeks, hosted sites will begin to move over to the new server.
