Hello,

I'm interested in hosting an online mmorpg on a dedicated server. But I seem to be stumped when it comes to uploading anything to dedicated servers as well as choosing the right dedicated server. I'm a little left in the dark when it comes to actually taking the setup and "uploading" it (if you will) to the dedicated server. I also am not 100% sure which dedicated server company I should sign on with as far as quality/price goes. Any suggested companies would be appreciated. I'm planning to start small with maybe around a 200 user cap? This is flexible. My price range is also flexible depending on the possibilities. These seem to be the best deals that I've come across:

http://www.datacentertalk.com/dedicated-se...-unmetered.html
If you haven't noticed, I'd prefer to use someone operating out of somewhere in Europe. Thoughts? Opinions?

(I've been using Yahoo!'s currency converter to find out what it 'd cost me in US dollars: http://finance.yahoo.com/currency-converte...D;to=EUR;amt=1)

On that first link, I was wondering if anyone could explain to me what the PM after the price means. Also, do any of the specs on these machines appear to be able to meet my needs?

I was also wondering if there are any known tutorials explaining the process involved with getting the server online and open to the public on a dedicated server. I'm uninformed but I'm ready and willing to learn. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If I understand right you want to host [your own server] an online game.

I don't know what game it is but you might want to find out how the manufacturer of the game feels about it first.

You can't just take a game & start your own website.

I appreciate your concern, fairjoeblue, but I've covered all of the legalities of the process. I assure you that what I intend to do with this is, in fact, legal.

Thank you for your reply.
