    Default Best Free Guild Hosting Site?

    So I've seen many threads (outdated) on the "best" free guild hosting site. I have to revisit this question because guild services are always updating themselves and I'm always interested to know what people's experiences are. What guild hosting service do you guys use and why? Also, where did you hear/read about that service?

    I use enjin. Why? Because it has a lot of functionality, easy group pay with optional survey/deals that users can do to add extra days to your advanced/ultimate subscription, and it comes with a mumble/TS3 server when you get advanced/ultimate.

    Paid Hosting. Currently talking to my guild leader about making the search from Guildlaunch to an actual hosting provider. It's so much better with a proper webmaster plus you get nearly extensively more customization and freedom.

    Guildlaunch and Enjin are both pretty good sites. I'd recommend whichever you prefer out of those two.

    Guildlaunch used to be the best, but I'd agree that Enjin has a lot more capability. Guildlaunch is still easier to use, though. We're lucky that there are some nice free guild hosting sites like Enjin and Guildlaunch. :P

    WoW
    No Man's Sky (PC)

    Sorry....gotta bring this thread back up It makes me curious. What makes Enjin better than Guild Launch in terms of features and capability? As far as I've seen, Guild Launch allows CSS customization (really useful since their designs aren't as good as Enjin) and editing the layout is much easier, in my opinion, on Guild Launch. Guild Launch also allows you to have a really clean background design, compared to Enjin. Enjin allows for custom-made html modules....don't know if Guild Launch offers that. Would love to see everyone else's thoughts.

    Any updates? Would love to know more suggestions and feedback from other people. Also....what MMO games are popular with guilds (eg: Guild Wars 2 and EQ2 have TONS of guild activity)?

    Guildlaunch and Enjin are the same. You can customize either a lot.

    A guild is a community within a community. If you find a good guild you will enjoy the game much more than normal, it's like a home away from home. In turn, you obviously haven't had that experience and that is why you think that.

    @Viney1 - More capability with what? It's been several months now....which service has better capabilities now?
    @ApocaRUFF - I coulda sworn I saw a thread where you had an interest in Guild Launch. Then again, this thread is kinda old. Guild Launch also has a voice-over servers on its advanced plans. Not sure if Guild Launch offers surveys/deals to get more time on the paid plans. What do you mean by "more functionality"?

    Lol I could ask what the difference is between Ventrilo and Teamspeak and most people would say Teamspeak has blablabla. Though Ventrilo, for me, is more simplified and easy to use.....but then again, last time I used ventrilo was a few years ago....it may have changed. I've never tried Teamspeak. Ventrilo was also used by some of my other friends. So if I had to answer the question, I would say I've never tried Teamspeak but Ventrilo is very simple to use...so I guess ease-of-use and simplification is what makes it different. Nowadays, Teamspeak is more popular though.

    Enjin, at least from what I've experienced and heard, generally has more options when it comes to customization and modules, adminsitration, etc...

    Also, ventrilo is almost universally regarded to have sub-par sound quality. The last time I used Vent, which was probably in 2008? The sound quality was akin to what you would expect to get from a badly tuned long-distance radio. Team Speak, unless it's being hosted on someones basement machine, usually has a lot better sound quality, and options for customization and other neat features. Also, I guess the "simple/ease of use" thing is dependent on your perspective. For example, I always thought of ventrilo as overly complicated and annoying to use, while TS3 (which, admittedly was my first VOIP program that I used when I first started playing SWG) seems a lot simpler, easy on the eyes, and generally an over-all better experience.

    Recently, I was apart of a guild that was playing ArcheAge and they created a website on Guild Launch. However, not even a week went by before everyone started to get annoyed with it and wanted a change. They ended up going with enjin.

    Out of curiosity, what did they get annoyed about? Damn, lol I wish someone could analyze Guild Launch and Enjin cuz it's as though Enjin beats GL in terms of customization and features but there's no specifications on what exact customizations and features are better.

    Really? TeamSpeak has better sound? Interesting....well it's more popular nowadays....I guess it'd be interesting to try out.
