    Have you looked at the VPS Offers forum? You should be able to find EU providers with the specifications you mentioned, try eukhost.com.

    Well I would tell you to go with a Dedicated Server rather than a VPS
    A VPS would just not be enough for AA3 Game

    If you don't mind me asking, any specifics why it needs to be Windows? Are you attempting to run Windows programs on it, or attempting to run coding which runs in only windows? This can also help determine the best provider for you to go with.

    EDIT: Ahh Game servers.

    Did you know most game servers work great in Linux as well?

    I would however agree, that a dedicated is usually your best bet for game servers unless saying you was running a 10 person private counter strike server (very lightweight)

    Well the game server at the moment is only available on windows, as there is no linux files for it.

    Hello,

    I would also tell you to look for a dedicated server as most vps companys have some sort of policy regarding gameservers being ran on vps's. Such as if the game overloads the CPU, on an equal share system you might get suspended.

    You will certainly need a VPS provider that gives you guaranteed CPU allowances rather than fair share.

    If your going to run a game I strongly suggest you purchase a dedicated server. You do not want your game to server because of the resource / server load issues on a VPS. Obviously if you can not afford the dedicated server then a VPS is all you can do. Just keep in mind the load issues that can occur as a resolve. Best of luck to you and your game. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.

    Appreciated with the comments and posts.
    But am buying this server out of interest, just for fun, am not getting nothing out of it...

    So keeping it to a minimal and reasonable where i dont mind spending some money to enjoy some game time on a new game.

    If any one has a dedi and have some spare space on it, and could make some room for a server, am only going to run 1 gaming server with max 18 - 20 slots. I would also be happy to do something like this..

    Anyway.. ill look around but not seen any windows vps that are cheap ..

    I have 3 windows server licenses, i could use if some one could setup a vps or something we can come to a deal with but if your interested pm me.

    Thanks.

    If you have a VERY good French friend in your game friends, you could ask him to help you to rent a dedibox from free.fr for 36 Euros/month.
    The "only" major problem is that you must live in France to order one of their dedicated server. I don't know if the credit card address also has to be tied to the address you give when you register, but it's worth the shot.

    http://www.dedibox.fr/

    Important !! Le service Dedibox n'est ouvert qu'aux français résidents en france métropolitaine
    Warning !! Dedibox service is only open for french residents (no international sales).

    I agree. Either a dedi; however they are expensive, or just go out and get a game server from a company that provides only game servers, for example:
    gameservers.com is good.
