What all should I say in the e-mail? No, I don't need THAT much power!
Just looking to run a 26 slot CS 1.6 Pub and a 10 slot CS 1.6 Private Server. Currently using a different VPS provider, but I'm constantly having spiking ping issues, etc, and I'm loosing my clients.
Nod. Other rented VPS servers are typically geared towards webhosting and other throughput-oriented tasks, with significant CPU resource sharing so as to fully utilize each machine. There's nothing wrong with that in general; it just doesn't work out well for game server hosting. Here, we give each server its own HT core (I haven't seen that yet at other places) and end up highly under-utilizing our hardware, but the end result is a much better environment for latency-sensitive applications like game servers.
Virtual hosting has really gotten a bad rep when it comes to game server hosting, but hopefully we can change that!
Just another quick question, but I can install centOS or Fedora Core on my VPS, right?
Absolutely. We currently have easy installers for Win2k3, Win2k8, and Gentoo (these come with game installs and the IPs preconfigured), but you can install any other major Linux distribution manually through VNC, by loading its DVD into the virtual drive and booting with it as you might at home. If the OS you'd like to install isn't in the DVD list, I can easily add it for you.
