Tips To Choose The Right Game VPS

You must know how to choose a Game VPS. First, you must know the requirements for the game you want to host. To learn about it, visit the publisher's website and check the game server requirements.

If you're not technical, then you need to look out for these terms: CPUs (processor), CPU's Speed (in Hz), RAM volume (in GBs), and the required networked bandwidth to run the game smoothly. If you're unsure what all these means, you can ask for help in the game community or contact our support,t which help to get your requirements right.

Apart from that, you also need to take care of two aspects: the number of players that'll populate your server and the amount of customization you'll do to your game server. For example, if you're playing with only ten friends, you can do with a basic VPS server, but if you want to bring your community of 100+ players, you'll need a high-spec VPS game server. Similarly, if you add mods to your game, you'll also need to consider their impact on the server resources.

How many players can the server support?

The server player support depends on the server hosting resources. The more resources it has, the more players it can support. However, you'll need to know the game requirements and how many resources it takes to get a good idea. Also, the bandwidth is crucial in determining how many players can play on the server at any given time. If you're unsure about the required bandwidth, using VPS plans offering unlimited bandwidth is best.

Do you guys offer a trial for gaming VPS?

Yes! We offer a 7-day free trial for new users. You'll need credit card verification (0.01 verification fee) to avail of the Game VPS trial. Also, it is only available to use once.

Can I upgrade or downgrade the gaming server VPS?

Yes, you can! VPS servers offer scalability out of the box as virtual servers use virtualization to allocate resources. This makes it ideal for upgrading or downgrading a gaming VPS server at anytime. Whether using Windows servers or a Linux operating system, you can trim or upgrade your VPS plan to meet online games demand.

Can you run Minecraft on a VPS?

Yes, you can run Minecraft on a VPS server. Minecraft is one of the top video games that offers a sandbox. Hosting a Minecraft server on a VPS lets you invite your teammates or community members to build incredible things or explore already-created worlds. Using a VPS for Minecraft hosting will save you as you can divide the cost among friends or the people using the server.

How much does Game Server Hosting cost?

A game server can cost anywhere between 3 to 150 per month. The cost of the game server depends on the game, server type (VPS game server or dedicated game server), and the server hosting capacity (i.e., the number of players allocated for the server). For example, your cost will differ if you want to run a Battlefield game server with a capacity of around 150 players to host a Minecraft server with ten player slots. The different aspects of game servers that affect the cost include CPU, RAM, Storage, Network, and operating system.

What is a dedicated and virtual private server, and which is better for gaming?

A dedicated server is a "dedicated" physical server by a hosting provider to offer full access to the server. As you have complete control over the server's computing power, you can use it to host gaming servers that address large communities. Also, you don't have to worry about shared resources as you own the hosting.

A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtualized server hosted on a dedicated server. It uses virtualization technology such as KVM to separate different instances diligently. These VPS are different from shared hosting as VPS servers are similar to dedicated servers in function and features. They perform similarly to a dedicated server while offering scalability. Also, VPS servers cost less than dedicated servers.

For gaming, you can choose both a dedicated or virtual private server for your game server. However, you must know that dedicated game servers are costlier than VPS game servers. In short, you should pick a dedicated server if you have the budget and want better control and performance over the dedicated resources (hardware and software). A virtual private server is a good pick if you're looking for a cost-effective solution and the ability to scale when needed quickly.

Should you get Managed or Unmanaged VPS for gaming?

For gaming, it is best to go for unmanaged VPS. It enables you to have full control over your server. This means you can install the choice of your software on the server, including the game and operating system choice. However, to use unmanaged VPS for gaming, you need technical expertise to set up and manage the server.

The managed VPS plans are more inclined toward non-technical users. The hosting manages the server, including maintenance, security, and backups. However, you'll still need to know how to work with managed hosting.

So, which one should you pick? You can pick unmanaged VPS if you're technically proficient and know what you're doing. For a less technical audience, managed VPS is a good pick. Also, managed VPS are more stable and offer a pleasant gaming experience.
