Getting your own gaming site can be extremely lucrative, taking into account a current boom in video games all over the world. And leveraging your own server is a must in this regard. Since gaming will require the utilization of a large amount of resources (such as disk space, bandwidth and memory), we advise you to start up with a VPS plan, and not shared plan that’s much cheaper.
Here’s what you should look into
First, talk to the humans in customer support via live chat and gauge their diligence and professionalism.
Second, inquire about the actual physical server machines, used by the web host. Although there’s not much talk about it, it’s the servers that will have a significant impact on your resilience and performance of your site.
Third, find out what uptime the web host is willing to guarantee. You shouldn’t go for anything below 99.95% because you don’t want folks to lose connection while playing video games on your server.
A good hosting provider should also offer a strong suite of VDS plans because this is where you’ll probably migrate after some time.
