Ejeet Networks: Making Money Through Gaming
| by Nikhil Singh
You've probably read plenty of articles in newspapers and other mainstream media, telling you how MMORPGs destroy lives or how gaming makes you a serial killer. What most people fail to understand is that when it comes down to it, MMORPGs (or video games in general) are just like any entertainment medium: you can either use it to better your lives, or completely ruin it – the choice is yours.
Here's the story of a couple who, driven by their love for MMORPGs, started a small hobby that grew into a means of livelihood, and eventually into a lucrative business!
I've met a lot of nice people while playing World of Warcraft and this humble couple was no exception – Justin and Joy are the joint owners/founders of the Ejeet Network, a successful guild hosting company that provides various game-related services to players for a small fee. I was curious to see what drove them into starting such a unique business, and I had a ton of questions on my mind; so I decided to go ahead and interview them. After all, it's always inspiring to read success stories about those who follow their passion. And Justin had some great advice on setting up an online business, so read on...
Right now our cheapest plan is $6.47 a month, which is a promotional plan for the launch of the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, which gives clients a real deal. Our most expensive plan would be WoW Xtreme, which is really loaded with features. This plan costs $14.87, and all plans are on a recurring payment.
Me: What does a guild get when they go for the overloaded plan?
Next are our raid planners; with Xtreme you get phpraider, wowraidmanger, and Raid Planner for eqdkp. The raid planners let people sign up for raids outside of the game and allows for detailed planning and class roles to be fulfilled. Also some of these programs have addons that work in the game by pulling data from the website, so it's like a live uplink technology.
We have integrated our websites with Blizzards armory, allowing clients to use the armory directly from their site, so they can look up characters from their own site. They can also access their in-game bank, which acts as a team roster for the guild. Our licensed cPanel allows the user to control advanced aspects of the website, such as FTP connections, databases, web-based file managers, and more. The sky is the limit; there's nothing you can't do.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
