I am going to set up a hosting company targeting the gaming industry, Mostly RealmCrafter.com I need a dedicated server to have full control over the system and also to be able to execute the server program that will be included in realmcrafter.
My question is this, What would I need to get started on Hosting game server like this one? I do want to offer hosting for there websites as well for the clients game that they design. Here is what I have gathered so far.
I wanted a windows server for windows programs that will be required.
I am going to use Clientexec for the billing system
Cpanel with WHM for the controle of the server.
I would also need alot of bandwith for this style of set up.
Well it more sounds like you need a dedicated machine then a reseller hosting. Most likely you are going to want at least 2 machines, one for your gameservers and other one for web hosting. You shouldn't run websites on the same machine as gameservers.

Ok after doing some research, i found out that i can't use Cpanel for windows, I am seeking some software to run on my dedicated server, One for seting up packages and the other for registering and paying for the packages. What would be the Best combo for a windows machine?
Helm is a great CP to use. Plus they have an integrated billing module so you could run all that right through Helm. It also has a built-in messaging system. I don't know if your game server would need anything specialized, but for normal hosting, HELM is great and easy to use.
