Searching for VPS (or dedicated server) to host several gameservers.

Greetings Lowendtalk,

I've been checking this forum for a few days now, and checked several offers: But I still haven't found my 'perfect host'. I have no experience with any server provider, so I am seeking help finding one.

I am searching for a VPS (or a cheap dedicated) server provider, located in the UK (West-Europe is also an option), for hosting several gaming servers. I had a provider in my mind (kimsufi/OVH), but the main problem there is that it's located in France and they're completely sold out (KS 4G).

Mainly requirements I am looking for:

  • A rather strong CPU
  • 2GB+ RAM
  • Unlimited Bandwitdh (At least this is what I think, gameservers handle quite a lot of traffic?)
  • 'Cheap'
  • Located in the UK (West-Europe is also an option)

As for cheap, this could be in the range of 0-20 USD.
Hopefully I posted this in the correct category, if not: sorry.

Thanks in advance.

  • I'm not up on my VPS in the EU but for dedicated servers here are 2 options that i'm aware of:

    Online.net has a 9,99 € Via Nano (pretty comprable to an Atom), 2gb ram, 500gb hybrid hard drive, 1gbps unlimited, location: France.

    FirstHeberg has a € 12.99 Atom with 4gb ram, 100mbps (10mbps guranteed), 1tb hard drive, location: France.

  • What games you're wanting to host is important, I think. CPU-hogging games will get you rejected beforehand or kicked out from most VPS providers. Some may offer you a dedicated core or two at a price. For dedicated servers, a $20 budget is too low unless your game servers run well on netbook (Atom) or smartphone (ARM) CPUs.

    If you don't get any VPS offers here, you might want to contact providers directly.

    I'm really talented at telling SolusVM to reinstall my OS. I can help you do it, too, for absolutely fee.

  • for your budget i think providerservice ssd vps would be good for you

    I was going to make the same point. Depending on the game you want to host, your budget could be very unrealistic to host several game servers. You'll want to figure out your approximate CPU and memory needs before deciding on a plan.

    Reprise Hosting (AS62838) Intel Xeon L5520, 1TB SATA, 4GB RAM, 10TB BW, $27/mo with DED10 promo! Cheap dedicated servers.

    Both are quite nice, noted. (Even tough they're located in France)

    Noted, but not sure about the bandwidth

    Currently I only want to host 4-6 Team Fortress 2 servers. (Here's a small list of requirements, eventhough the requirements are from Counter-Strike: Source, they're almost the same. But the requierements are from 2001, valve is using a better optimized and faster system: SteamPipe)
    It's mainly just a test to see if the slots will fill up, that's why I am using a low budget. If most of the slots will be filled I'll buy a bigger/better machine.

    I am not sure if your bandwidth is capable to maintain several gaming servers.
