    Been Looking For A Dedicated Server

    Well, I have spent the last few weeks looking for a dedicated server and I thought I found one I liked, but I found out that it was located out of the United States( Which is where I live ) It was at leaseweb .com

    So then a friend told me to come here and see if I cant find a place but every place I find is way expensive or the hardware isnt good enough, compared to leaseweb.

    So if someone could help me out here I would love that.

    What I am wanting to do is run, 2x counter strike source servers 18 slots each, and sell webspace. I am going half and half with a friend on a dedicated server and we can come up with close to $120 a month ( Total ). I figured we would need close to 1-3 TB of bandwidth, but I am not really sure, and 1-2 Gigs of Ram, again I am not really sure since this would be my first dedicated server.

    He can....an option would be to pay a setup fee to reduce the cost.

    Would you mind posting the server specs you choose that are offered at leasweb?

    Do you need server management?

    I really don't think you are going to find anything near that for the same price. You may have to look at a lower processor.

    Okay, I accutaly just was thinking about this. Lowering the server specs I need for now, and sell webspace out the butt, when once I get enough people that the server is paying for itself ill upgrade. But hows the webspace business going? How long do you think it would take to pay off a server? Also, where should I get a server for web hosting at?

    I don't think I would run a gaming server from Europe. I just pinged leaseweb.com and got pings of ~138ms average. That's not gonna cut it for a game server AFAIK.

    BTW - those server specs are awesome. How about updating us on performance/service later.
