How many game servers could i have running on 1 machine? are there any specalized scripts that work with setting up game servers?
thanks for your time,
Well, if you wanted to get into gaming, I would recommend cPanel GS as the gaming control panel: http://www.cpanel.net/products/cPanelGS/index.htm
It's a free addon you can get with cPanel and since you might already be familiar with cPanel. It would only add to your experience.
You'll need to get your own server for gaming servers which can end up costing a pretty penny as you will need a more powerful server for the more games you would like to run. A good place to look for deals/quality in the same place is layeredtech.com
You can take a look at LT's gaming website, www.layeredx.com
Another thing you would need to consider is administration. Server Administration can cost anywhere between say $25 a month to $500 a month depending on how many servers you need administered.. I would highly recommend http://admingeekz.com/
Now I'm not an expert in the gaming Industry so I would most definitely get some more advice and pop out that google homepage a little more too.
Whatever the outcome. Good luck to ya
