Thumbs up Get players without purchasing Hosted Tab?

SA-MP is awesome and I wanna publish a server.

Is it possible to run a server and gain players without it being on the hosted tab?

I searched and found out that internet tab is same as hosted tab so if you don't purchase hosted tab you will not appear in SA-MP browser AT ALL and the game-mp.com website doesn't sell either which forces you to get expensive hosted tab listing in other websites.

It just doesn't make sense to start a server that you are not profiting and paying ~$30 a month for it.
Sure after gaining some players and profit it makes sense to purchase hosted tab listing.

So is it possible?

I think when you start out it's really important to have a server advertisement set up on here.

Hmm, that could help but I think majority of SA-MP players do not use the forum.

You need the audience ready before opening it, otherwise you open it for no one. Make a discord, get some people and make them curious

I've never used discord that way but I've seen people use it for this purpose here.

Thanks for the response.

Unfortunately if you wanna get your server noticed nowadays you need to advertise. Hosted tab is a good option, but you could try other means to get players if you do not want to purchase the hosted tab.

Id try advertising in other places first. Like on forums etc.

Almost impossible to get a good amount of players wihtout hosted tab. Noone would give a fuck for emtpy server, you'll have players only if your friends playing there.

You could try advertising your server on *******. And as someone already suggested use discord.

Well at least they are in the SA-MP browser... both in internet tab and hosted tab.

Thanks for comments.
