Does it need to take up more than 2GB? Have you gone through and deleted all images and audio that your project doesn't need?

Aside from that, any Web host should be able to work. I've seen recommendations for rpgmaker.net

basically all you need to do for server hosting is to upload the folder contents into a folder on your server with FTP. Then give the server adress to that folder and everything will work.

The problem for most people is that free hosters rarely give FTP access, and uploading through a CMS usually goes wrong at one time or another due to the settings done by the site-owner.
And your own server space with FTP-Access usually cost a monthly fee depending on the size of the webspace and whatever options the hoster placed in the package you rented.

I can pay for the monthly fee. I just would need some help to set the whole thing out!

This, and I suspect free hosters will mostly not toss you over 2 GB of storage, as Web sites typically take nowhere near that.

If you have a website with FTP access, then everything is extremely simple.

1) download/open the FTP program suggested by your hoster, and go to the adress specified by the hoster.
2) in your server area, make a new folder with a name that follows server/networking rules and contains the name for your game
3) copy the contents of the www folder from the local computer to that new folder
4) open your browser, enter your server adress followed by the foldername (www.yourserver.com/yourgamefolder or so) into the adress line
5) play the game

If you have problems doing that, you need to specify at which step you did what and what the results were. We can't help without details here.

I've done all of that and it correctly uploaded on the server the game files.
But if I type on the browser (game is the folder on the server, permission to read is public):
www.mygame/game

Then the following happens:

I think this is outside the scope of RPG Maker.
It's best to talk to your hosting company about it, as there can be many reasons, such as htaccess, hotlinking, or permission issues.

Is the permission 755?
Is there an index file?

You can start from these, but it's best to talk to your hosting company, as they are more knowledgeable in those matters.

All the best! :)

Here's a medical question for ya: Why do I start lightly coughing after I drink coffee?
Well, someone "reviewed" my game. Didn't credit me anywhere in the video and spent 2 minutes insulting it. Going to ignore that and move on.
To cut down on map lag, I've been researching how to implement a lighting layer as a single map overlay instead of a bunch of individual lights. Hopefully I'll have a screenshot soon!
Imagine having a game broken up into a whole bunch of chapters? Like Chapter 11 should be about the party members going bankrupt.
Over 1/4th of the calendars are already out :eek: Have you already put something to a good use?
