Game Hosting UK
We are currently running a DualXeon 2.6 2GB for game hosting, wondered if anyone here had any experience with UK hosters offering that spec , and the kind of prices they charge. Ours is very costly and prices seem to be dropping.
Any links/advice appreciated.
What kind of price are you paying for that at the moment if you don't mind me asking?

I know someone with a dual Xeon 2.8 with 2gigs ram at
http://www.core-isp.net and is very happy with it. About £175 a month I think it was...
It looks to be £199 but they ask for a £700-£1,100 set up fee, wow.
We currently pay £240 which is way OTT IMO, compared to some prices we are being offered but I prefer game specific hosters or at least those with a clue about game hosting.
Yeah, the guy I know has a "special" deal with them. They do have a game specific section, but it doesn't show any dual cpu systems to the public. Try contacting them about special deals.
or get your own hardware, and co-locate it, turns out cheaper int he long run to colo a 2u server on a 1 or 2mbit deal, I hear alot of good things about game2xs.com however (they have dedicated gaming servers as well).
UK servers are always more expensive as bandwidth is very expensive.
Parts also cost more, but i have had first hand experience with a company which offers great support, and average prices:
So beware it won't cost you less
yes, but for gameservers 1 or 2 mbit is enough, its true a 32man HL server in use 24/7 can use up to 400gb / month, but nothing is in use that much.
