We run this service because we believe technology and programming are an important part of shaping the future of human society for the better. This is why we chose long ago not to charge for our shell accounts. However, being a small independent shell host with no source of revenue from our services means we have had to make some difficult choices in regards to giving out shell accounts. To keep our service viable for the foreseeable future we need to be quite strict about giving out accounts and ensure that the available resources are used optimally and that no abuse will take place. This is why the invite and application system was created.
An invite can be acquired from a staff member or from someone you know who already has a shell account with us. If you would like to petition our staff for an invite code, please contact us.
