After months of research into game servers and all things that are involved in running a GSP, I think I have come down to the final issues. Anything "online" popular has its immature kids that like to DDoS services and try to shut down the company, which brings me to the point of this post. Since my buisness will be online, the storefront is a website.
I am in need of the most RELIABLE and PERFORMANCE webhost. Does anyone have any recommendations? (Price doesnt matter)
Also since I need to run modernbill/kayako but I would like to minimize the spending in the start, could these services be run on a VPS instead of wasting a dedicated server? If so could anyone recommend any providers with the same criteria as above.
Would you recommend going with the same company to host my website and VPS? Also am I being a little crazy by using this to minimize risk of being totally hacked?
The reason im asking these questions is so if my website is ddos'd for whatever reason, my billing and support systems wont go down as well.
(If the VPS question is in the wrong forum, I am sorry, just trying to fit it into the same post)
I am also in the business of gameservers and have had problems with kids DDoS'ing and SYN_SENT'ing servers. So to answer your question, no its not crazy to minimize your risks as stated. As far as billing programs are concerned, try finding something that has a server-wide ModernBill licence.
