Flash Communication Server Hosting

I have been experimenting with Flash Communication Server lately and have also been looking for affordable FlashCom hosting. As it is well know, MediaTemple offers FlashComm hosting, but only as an add-on to one of their hosting packages. This forces you to purchase a hosting plan of minimum $20 per month and then add $15 per month to include FlashComm. All in all, you are looking at $35 per month.

I recently stumbled upon which offers only FlashComm Server capability. This means that you can continue to use your own hosting account and simply use Influxis as the FlashComm Server. I am not sure about performance, since these two servers (your webserver and Influxis' FlashCom server may be thousands of miles apart. In any case, for experimental purposes, it may be useful to you. Here are the details:


  • Rate: Monthly $9.95 | One-Time Setup Fee $15
  • FCSMX Connections: 4
  • Streaming Bandwidth: 64 kbps
  • Disk Space: 25 MB | $1 per additional Megabyte
  • Bandwidth Allowance: 1 GB transfer/month | $5 per GB over 1 GB
