    Arrow Looking for Cheap dedicated server for gameserver

    Hello guys, i'm new here but i admire this forum for a long time

    So, can you tell me some CHEAP dedicated servers in usa?

    I'm going to use it for 1 gameserver.
    i was going to take OVH (something like $49) but they are with this sold out thing

    RAM 6GB+, processor at least dual core...

    One more question: Can i use Win Server WEB EDITION to my gameserver? (medium population server)

    Thanks, I really apreciate your help!

    a) Gameserver and cheap do not mix. Gameservers need stable latency with premium routes, and they are usually the subject of DDoS attacks which require protection.
    b) Web Edition = no, unless your game is purely HTTP/browser based

    why use windows for a game server anyway? i personally have had much better experience with linux.

    edit: there are a few games that run better or only on windows but its easier to just have a windows VM for em. looking at you Arma 3!

    ahh fair enough. i would suggest it as a good experience to learn linux but windows will work for servers. windows will make the server more expensive though unless you have your own license.

    Unfortunately the windows license alone is going to cost you over $12/month.

    Your requirements and price are not too bad. Should be able to pick up a DC or low end QC for that price.

    Just FYI, you wont find the web version in 2012. Maybe you can contact OVH and see if they have something else they can offer you within your budget.

    Why not just use a SSD VPS? I've done that without latency issues.
