hello i`m happy to so you guys posting here,
i already tried to run in other OS system but this otservers just run good in windows xp servers. Deepbluehosting is it is a game it is like tibia do u know tibia? but it is not with so many players like tibia has it is just like 100 players we dont have so much players.
Most datacenters don't have the necessary licenses to resell XP licenses for servers. Not because they're not out there, but because they prefer to use true server operating systems. Depending on the specs of the machine you're looking for and how long you plan to use it, you would most likely save money by buying your own server (Maybe a $549 Celeron cheapie from Dell). You'd just be paying for the bandwidth and rackspace in that case.
PS: XP x64 is NOT recommended for server use (Anything where uptime takes priority over processing power will NOT benefit from XP x64) mostly because of the lack of drivers, and it is in the pre-release (well, official release) stage. Because of it's "Trial" status, I'm not sure whether Microsoft would provide the high level of support that a datacenter environment would require.

We once had a client (who will remain nameless) colo a box with us which we later found out to have Windows 2000 WORKSTATION installed on it. We knew something was odd when this guy put in a ticket asking us to Install Norton AntiVirus and Microsoft Office for him.
We later found out that the customer was literally using this "server" as a remote workstation over the net via PC Anywhere! He would tell us that when he needed to "get work done" he would simply click on his PC anywhere icon to do his everyday work...
I nearly fell off my chair.
When I asked "WHY?" he said that this was the way his nephew had it setup for him. Apparently he didn't think about running the applications locally only because they were never installed on his local PC to begin with!
Needless to say, this guy was not too computer literate. Go figure...
