Lately I've been considering offering game servers in a few locations. I was just wondering if others have gone down this path with any success? Any pointers? Tips? What to cut corners on, what NOT to cut corners on? I've deemed Network a premium concern, RAM second.
Appreciate any feedback

All I know is that game hosting, being such a lucrative business, is one of the toughest to succeed in. Unless you already have the clients and sponsors lined up, you will have a very hard time competing with the big dogs like Nuclear Fallout, Hi-Def, Velocity, Summit etc.
Don't do it Korey. Rats is absolutely right. It's really tough to get in the game hosting industry if you're just starting out and actually be successful. Even if you invest thousands of dollars into marketing your services/products, there's little chance that you'll get an order because of all the competition nowadays. There are many game hosting providers out there but only a few are recognized and they are the ones that Rats mentioned above.
To Rats: since when is Summit big? Didn't they just open a few months ago?

Summit is very well known in the competitive community and is neck-and-neck with Hi-Def when it comes to competitive server quality. Since they only have a few locations they aren't as big as the other companies.
