About

All known locations (according to Second Life search) for server storage are shown here.

These are locations specifically set up as dedicated, additional ("co-location") storage hosting for DropBoxes and other servers, rather than add-ons to residential, commercial shop, or club parcels.

Rates and prim/impact limits listed may not reflect any recent updates - always check for current rate cards and other current information inworld before renting.

Where Should I Store?

For best results, choose a storage provider where the sim/region has a restart day that is different from the one your main dropbox location is on. This helps combat delivery issues due to a single sim either being restarted at the time of delivery attempts, or the sim/region just not listening to the internet for delivery instructions at the moment.

In any viewer, HELP > ABOUT usually will get you a screen that will tell you the server codebase. Look in the second block of text.

You will see either the main codebase (Restarts on Tuesdays):

  • "Second Life Server"

or one of the RC codebase names (Restarts on Wednesdays):

  • "RC BlueSteel"
  • "RC LeTigre"
  • "RC Magnum"
  • "RC Snack" (rarely)

Why does this matter? Because if your main set of dropboxes is on a sim that restarts on Tuesdays (which is most of the grid) then you want your duplicated set at least on a sim that restarts on Wednesdays - this way they're not both restarting on the same day.

Which Is Better?

It depends on whether you are selling products which are no-copy to you, the merchant, or copy/transfer to you, the merchant.

No-Copy to Merchant


If you are selling products which are no-copy to you, the merchant, (such as breedable things or gacha items) then stick with a location on a mainland region - the worst that happens with mainland is your stuff gets sent back. You'll still HAVE your inventory, you just may need to fish it out of a clump in your lost and found.

If you're not inworld for a while and an island you're renting dropbox space on gets turned off in the meantime, that box of no-copy things may simply be gone forever with no retrieval possible.

Copy/Transfer to Merchant


If your products are copy/transfer to you, the merchant, then as long as you keep a copy in your inventory it doesn't matter whether you rent on mainland or island estates.
