You tell me, you are the one that said I misunderstood.
Ok i had a look at your website, you are offering dedicated server solutions with Windows 2003 OS.
I would like to do the same, i have 1 server currently colocated. Im still learing the ropes but i am getting there, i currently host 'game servers' but now i am thinking of offering an entire box to clients who have several 'game servers' which they could manage and create themselves.
In order to do this i think the only obstacle that is preventing me from doing this is a license. Ive been doing some reading and i am told i will require a particular type of license, i think its an SPLA license like you have mentioned already. I dont suppose i could give away my own license for this as then it would be installed on more than one machine.
I just want to know more from the community here who already do this, what would be the best way to obtain one, does the prices vary in any shape way or form depending on what i do?
What would be the best way for me to achieve what i am after, knowing that i am starting small.
If you plan on offering Windows dedicated servers to clients then the most cost effective way is to sign an SPLA agreement with Microsoft. If you are not going to be using a large number of licenses and just a few here and there then the best way would be to contact your datacenter as most will license it for you.
If you want to sign your own SPLA program then I would advise contacting Insight (www.insight.com) and inquire about the SPLA agreement. They are certified "resellers" of Microsoft which is the most effective way to get into the SPLA program.
