Planning on starting a game server.
I'm new here and I assume that you come across threads like this very often but this is what this site and specifically this section is about, isn't it?
K I'm new to hosting, I've designed few websites in past and administrate the website of the Corporation where I work. I'm registered as on of the experts in experts exchange community. I'm experienced in technical field of computers both hard and soft.
I've been planning on starting a game server and intend to host Z8Games Crossfire etc games which is really going to help a lot of players as there are no servers of Z8Games in South-Southeast Asia.
The hardware I have is-
Core i5 2500K 3.3 Ghz 4 cores 6MB L3 Cache
16 GB DDR3 GSkill 1600MHz RAM (Dual Channel)
500 GB Seagate HDD
I don't have any idea on how much Bandwidth etc Z8Games require so I'll have to upgrade that after consulting with them.
I don't know which server OS and CPanel I should be using.
Any help and suggestions will be helpful.
