I've got several questions concerning Dedicated Server Hosts:
Background: I need large bandwidth, at least 1000 Gb/month. Gaming Servers have to be allowed. I need a really good ping to most European countries (mainly UK, France, Germany and NL). I need rootaccess.
1. Suggestions of providers that meet with the criteria mentioned above?
2. Win servers always uses a lot of server power. Is Linux better in that aspect?
3. How is a common dimension of game servers- how many percent overload?
4. Which country provides the fastest network and best pings to surrounding countries (europe based and in generally)
Please: Don't answer me with stuff like:
* Noob, dont waste your money on game servers
* Usage depends on game and settings etc.
