What I mean is, there are dozens of "gaming companies" wanting to jump on the bandwagon everyday. Most are the younger crowd looking to make a quick buck. If you are in it to grab a few bucks here and there then thats fine but if you are serious about making a solid business I think you should learn more about games and how to effectivly run a business first. Then once you have that down you can worry about learning how to setup and support a game server company. Make no mistake about it just because this is an "internet" business it is still a business. Would you open a store in your city without any kind of business plan or financial backing? I would say no. If you did you would fail just like 90% of the guys that start hosting game servers will...
I in fact know a little of what it takes to be successful. I ran a very profitable resturant for 9 years before deciding to sell and open a Game server company. Without my prior knowledge and business sense this company would have never made it, That is a fact. I know dozens of GSP's that go all month with no new clients yet we are purchasing servers almost every week..
This business demands alot of money,time and commitment and if you don't have all three of those things then do not waste your time.
As I write this to you now I have been up for 21 hours which is not out of the ordinary. My typical work day lasts 16+ hours 7 days a week and I have 6 other techs working....
So tell me sir, Do you REALLY want to open a game server company?
i fully agree with "X-Gaming" because running a GSH requires alot of things. Its not a simple business. If you were to run a business selling game servers "Armageddon21" you would do so bad at it because you have no idea what it takes to successfully run one while making enought of a profit. Please Take X-Gaming's wise advise, because it might make you a different person than you are now.
I don't think you should make a gaming business. It doesn't sound like you have a whole lot of knowledge about it and im not sure if you have the capital. But 1 GB RAM will get you no money and nothing but lag. But here's some examples. People like game daemons use dual xeon 2.4's, dual SCSI drives and about 8 GB of RAM. The price tag on this is a few thousand per server. But you can run a couple hundred slots on these with ease. I suggest you research this a lot more because of the way the gaming industry has turned. Hosts buying those managed.com P4 2.4's with 1 GB RAM, they overload the servers, customers leave and they go out of business. If you can't give good quality at a gamer's price i suggest you rethink your decision on getting in the gaming industry.
