4. No to be critical, but I think you should do a little bit more research before you dive into the game hosting market. It's difficult and as I mentioned before, not very forgiving. Consider leasing a dedicated server and testing out the waters.
Thanks! But for co-location, they offer 1U space that means only 1 server can be put inside the rack? And they also offered me 2 plans.
Shared Bandwidth (80GB Monthly Data Transfer) 100MBPS
Dedicated Bandwidth (Unlimited Data Transfer) 1MBPS
Which one would you guys prefer me on trying out?
Hmmm, dedicated server. I'll give it a try but I will have to install all the securities are stuff myself right?
