I and a team of friends have been creating an MMORPG and when we transition from alpha testing to beta testing, we'd like to have a dedicated server on a high speed network. Currently, alpha testing is being done on a home computer with DSL.
What we will need is full access to the server because of the various software being installed. Plus, server-side patches are also going to be done frequently. If you are a company that provides such a thing, please PM me (I dont know if listing your company here is against TOS, too lazy to read it).
In any case, we won't be needing the services until January 2003 but would like to prepare for the transition soon. Also, we will need a price quote in the PM
EDIT: I forgot to mention we DONT need this to be a managed server. We will take care of that. We just need the machine and the network connection. Plus, of course, 24/7 hardware support availablility if something were to go wrong with the equipment.
we might be able to get you something Although I'm sure these servers wont be arround but just to give you an idea here is a few servers that http://hostareus.com is currently offering. We plan to have more like them avalible in the future.
