Hello guys, we have a server on a 100mbit connection, however we canít really justify the cost of keeping the server for what we use it for.
The server has more than enough resources and bandwidth available to run a game server, I was thinking running a game server would help us cover the costs of the server.
We were thinking of:
UT 2004 (Or a game requiring similar resources) Ė 16 Slots Ė (None Public) - £7.50 a month
UT 2004 (Or a game requiring similar resources) Ė 16 Slots Ė Public - £9.99 a month
(With the ability to upload your own maps/mods)
We are not wanting to start a business doing this at the moment, were just looking to generate a bit of extra cash to go towards our server bills.
We have a test UT 2004 Server @ 220.127.116.11:7777 which I get 30-40 ping in.
Would you say the price we are asking is reasonable?
I donít suppose anyone here is just looking for a game server?
I'd say your best bet is to price a bit lower than other UK gameserver hosts, to give people an incentive to choose you over the proven company. I don't know much about the UK market and pricing, so I don't have much personal insight to base it off.
What makes you choose UT2k4 over something more popular, such as Counter Strike or Counter Strike Source?
