I am looking for a dedicated server to host a game server for Garry's Mod, (which can be VERY cpu intensive) I am having trouble, because my budget is limited to about $75
a month. Colocation is an option, but only if it is cheap (I have someone who will provide a server)
So far I have really considered:
and their Core 2 Duo plan,
and THEIR Core 2 Duo plan.
I have had experience using a biggameserver core 2 duo, with 1Gb extra ram, and extra bandwidth. It came out to $90 a month, but the people running it couldn't afford it for long, so it disappeared. It managed to support 4 servers, 3 of them usually pretty full.
They look like the best deal so far.
Is there any way for hosts to somehow pull a dreamhost and overload their dedis, and screw you over for something?
Not really. They can oversell bandwidth, but not the systems themselves.
If anyone knows, what are the minimum specs needed to run three garrysmod servers? Two? How about two and a css server?
What kind of bandwidth usage?
I got 20K/second from somewhere, so I'm basing it on that, wit room to spare.
Since this will be a garrysmod server, lets make that 25 Kilobytes a second (or kilobits?) * 8 players * 60 seconds * 60 minutes * 24 hours * 30 days = 518
Gigabytes a month. If it is Kilobits, would it be 64
How correct is this? After assuming that it will be commonly empty, we can drop this to 200
Gb or so, for now. Once I get players, hopefully some will donate, so I can afford a bigger plan.
I don't think bandwidth will be much of a problem.
The people I ask about hosting garrysmod servers all pay $250 or so a month, and I just can't afford that.
Anyone know of a company and plan that will fit these requirements?
