    Need a VPS Game server

    Hi guys, Need a litle hand,
    Ordered a VPS server frm here off an non named comapny, which at this momnet is causing serious lag with our players

    We use a small software called sphereserver for ultima online old game but we have a player base of around 30-40 players.

    We need a vps that has windws vnc remote desktop. stable and fast connection and a resonable spec and bandwidth, Budget about 20 per month.

    With our current provider, we get a ping of 53ms but at certains times during the day game play comes to a halt lag is losing us players

    Oh and we are based in Europe So VPS for us would be better in Europe

    Do you have specifications (RAM / HDD / CPU / etc) for your requirement? Was the lag caused due to slowness of VPS or that of network?

    I think that you may need to raise your budget a bit. I dont know what type of games your are running on your current container but 30-40 players is quite high.

    The delay (ms) may be low but if the provider oversell their resources is more likelly to face bad performance during some times of the day.

    I dont know your requirements in RAM HDD etc but a good choise for your bugdet would be

    the specifications will be great to know. Do you need managed or unmanaged service?

    for gaming ping latency is the king

    try to get the vps as near to your players as possible

    of course decent cpu and enough ram is important as well
