    You "just" need 1 Petabyte of transfer?

  • sorry it was a mistake. its 1,000 GB :)

  • Very probably you already looked at it, but why not a Kimsufi?

  • kinda impossible to get such rates in the middle east

  • XIAOSpider97XIAOSpider97 Member, Provider

    Try Hetzner, they are in Germany.

    Pump Cloud (Pump, Inc.) [AS49559] VPS/Dedis in:
    Los Angeles, Beauharnois, Strasbourg, Warsaw, Frankfurt, Hong Kong and Macau.

  • ya true i can't but middle east network is not good for gaming. always lagging .

    i am looking for Europe data centers . OVH network is fast i know.

    issue i have with OVH / Kimsufi the orders take too long its been like 1 day my validation is not done yet so thats why i want to know if some one offers i go ahead and buy.

  • which game u going to host cod4 ?

  • @XIAOSpider97 said: Try Hetzner, they are in Germany.

    never tried them are they good? do you have servers with them ?

  • yes it would be Counter STRIKE 1.6 hosting

  • You can rent a server at Hetzner by using the dutch auction. They are pretty reliable :)

  • @Issam2204 said: You can rent a server at Hetzner by using the dutch auction. They are pretty reliable :)

    ya i saw one offer for just like 26 eur but i need a IP to do a ping test and trace route to determine my pings and network reliability.

  • i checked a server in germany not sure their data center it was like 140 ms.

    Not bad what do you think for game server having 140 ms? playable??

    Hetzner's test IP is www.hetzner.de

    140? I thought it is fast from Middle East to Europe...

    I know that all the traffic from Saudi Arabia to Europe goes Marseille, FR. So maybe france is best.

    Kimsufi... I don't know if they offer KVM over IP (IPMI)...

    Try online.net's C2758? 15.99 EUR

  • 140ms is pretty bad. Especially for Counter Strike.

    How much Gameservers you wanna deploy?

  • at the moment just 1 but i need advice since i am in middle east. and targeting middle east users i need something near data center so that pings are less. below 100 would be better :)

    Only place in Middle East that can fulfill some of your requirements is Turkey but you will have to increase your budget. I am not sure if any DC in Middle East offers DDoS protection but even if someone does, be ready to pay in 4 figures for a very minimal protection. The closest place for you to get a decent DDoS protected server will be Romania. Also ping a test IP from OVH Strasbourg to check if it gives you decent enough ping to play.

  • middle east network and datacenter price for having even cloud service is way out of my budget thats why i am checking with you guys what shall i do at this point.

    well for ddos i will use cloudlayyar for moment i am going for premium membership they do advance ddos mitigation :)

  • @cassa said: Servdiscount

    you have server with them?

  • If you just want to host one Counter Strike 1.6 Server...use a VPS instead with 2 vCores. This should be enought.

    I used vultr for CSGO and the perfomance was really good. Since you need ddos protection try ramnode or go to buyvm. Just try one with a looking glass...

  • i have ramnode/linode/had vultr but my latency was high at that time when i checked now its back to like 114-120 range pings. like i said if possible i get closer data center near middle east that would be great. i am targeting middle east users in DUBAI so the pings should be less them 100 ms if possible :)

    it has to be playable and lag free

    here is my ping information. seems like Europe is better? what are your suggestion?

  • Use vultr and Frankfurt. This might be the best datacenter in Germany, you can try NL/FR too.

    Frankfurt it is then.

    DO recently opened up their new location in Frankfurt co-located with Interxion, "directly" connected to DE-CIX if I'm not mistaken, but I have no idea how well their servers perform under the load of specific game server(s).

    Going by that site, it looks like Switzerland might offer the best routes. Dedicated servers in Switzerland are usually very pricey, but you can find reasonably priced VPS.

    I know very little about game server hosting and whether it's feasible on a VPS, but if it is, take a look at Edis (uses Nine.ch data center), Nine.ch directly, Green.ch, and Datasource.ch. That ping test site uses AlpineDC.

    Avoid DECIX for Etisalat - Their port is highly overused. DU works fine.

  • DU? you mean DO?

  • EdgeWebEdgeWeb Member

    CS 1.6 came out in 1999, are you sure you need such high specs? As already said I think a Vultr instance would be a better option.

    No, i mean DU.at - One of the 2 national ISPs in the UAE (the other one being etisalat.eu)

    *Etisalat.ae

    Not sure why i wrote EU, and stupid LET again won't let me edit posts...

  • well issue is i live in sharjah and i can only use etisalat :(

    everyone praises etisalat . DU is worst ISP here lol thats what people say. no offence :P

  • WilliamWilliam Member, Provider

    Probably is even true, DU international BW is likely just less used due to less customers - Both have (as of 2013) only 10GE at DECIX.

    If you only want 1 CS1.6 game server, you could probably get away with it on the 512MB plan

    Favourite host in general: Ramnode (SSD10 for 10% off, affiliate link)
    Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr (affiliate link)

  • i see on your signature that you say that your fav game server provider is vultr yes its good but pings are 112-20 so still distance is concern for me. i wish i was near :)

  • WilliamWilliam Member, Provider

    @alhadi said: ya . well i found a provider giving me vps for like 18 usd a month. its a Saudi arabia

    Nashirnet (or rather their upstream) will get very mad at the first signs of DDoS...

  • hmm so bad idea ? do you have a provider in mind that can give me latency below 100 ms ?

  • Hello! This is your request? :) #101608 - GAME SERVER Try Test IP: 46.19.143.157 Test IP: 93.95.100.190

    LegionBox – XEN VPS Hosting. Location: Russia, Usa, Switzerland or Germany. From $7.
