Ok, buddy, are you having an aneurism? This thread wasn't made to promote anyone or anything - it was made to dispel misleading bullcrap from shitty, unscrupulous GSPs and try and encourage more people getting a dedicated box, after the constant pain we regularly see when yet another poor sap gets crap performance with no refund after cancellation of service from a GSP in the Squad server host community. Time and again we see the same complaints from people, about the same companies that prey on people with little technical know-how that just want to run a game server.

Rackspace is considered the top when it comes to hosting. This is because their sites never go down, and they let you work out a custom quote for your space needs. However, if you are a smaller outfit, Rackspace is likely going to be a little bit too much. If you are a bigger business or want a server that can be partitioned into multiple purposes, this is the right way to go.

Dedicated hosting server providers utilize extreme security measures to ensure the safety of data stored on their network of servers. Providers will often deploy various software programs for scanning systems and networks for obtrusive invaders, spammers, hackers, and other harmful problems such as Trojans, worms, and crashers (Sending multiple connections). Linux and Windows use different software for security protection.
Once you are ready to go ... remove the password, start up the game, strip your character down to their tight whities (placing everything into a crate), turn the monitor off, and wank away. Note that your host character will die shortly thereafter but the game will run on and external players can come and go as they please (assuming you/they don't have any connection issues).

InMotion's Dedicated Servers are now using Solid State Drives (SSDs), a type of hard drive that uses no mechanical parts and provides substantial performance upgrades from traditional spinning drives. Solid State Drives give you faster read/write speeds, can handle more disk requests and can push through significantly more data than a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD).

You'll also want to consider how long you'll need dedicated web hosting. If it's a short-term project—say, less than a month or two—you'll typically receive a refund should you cancel your hosting within 60 days. Some companies offer 30-day money-back guarantees, while others offer 90-day money-back guarantees. Once again, it's beneficial to do your homework.
Note: Using Windows in data centers requires a special licensed copy. These licenses can be leased from providers for $25 a month. Alternatively Linux is free, however it's not suggested unless you're familiar with Linux, or you're tech savvy enough to learn it. If you do go this route, use the Debian distro. Squad mods also do not currently support Linux, but support is planned for modding 2.0.
Other software applications available are specialized web hosting specific programs called control panels. Control panel software is an all inclusive set of software applications, server applications, and automation tools that can be installed on a dedicated server. Control panels include integration into web servers, database applications, programming languages, application deployment, server administration tasks, and include the ability to automate tasks via a web based front end.

Additionally, you'll want a web hosting service that offers Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) if you plan to sell products. Here's why: An SSL connection encrypts the data that travels between your site and users' web browsers, thus safeguarding the transmission of purchasing information. You've probably seen a green padlock in your web browser's address bar while logging into your online bank account or making online purchases. It's a symbol of trust. Some companies include a free SSL certificate when you sign up for a hosting plan, while others charge close to $100. You can save some money by shopping around for the services that offer the cheapest SSL plans.
Security – Clients using a dedicated platform will be able to deploy security measures, such as anti-virus and firewall configurations, that are more tailored to their own functions; whilst also avoiding the security vulnerabilities that can otherwise be introduced by the activities of neighbouring clients on shared hosting platforms. In addition, dedicated servers located within data centers can benefit from the physical security measures that such facilities often put in place, including, for example, biometric authentication, security guards and mantraps.

Our 100%-company-owned dedicated servers are configured with the demanding user in mind. Even our lowest-end server is capable of hosting several large game servers, websites, or other services that would cost significantly more if purchased conventionally, and all dedicated servers are based on the industry-leading performance of INAP bandwidth, ensuring the lowest possible latencies.
How about several years' worth of stress tests across various sets of hardware performed by the devs of the game, the QA team, as well as the plethora of server owners / hosts, that have all provided empirical data that reflects expected results of software that is not yet fully optimised, running a large-scale game that's replicating as much as Squad is.
We rank websites by how stable they are through uptime. You can monitor a hosting provider’s uptime through website monitoring tools. Dedicated hosting servers should never go down if you are not using any bandwidth. If you have a ton of traffic and outgrow your bandwidth, you probably will have to upgrade. In no other situation should your hosting go down unless natural disaster. Each review has an uptime marker sho you know how well the hosting provider does with constant website traffic and bandwidth.
You can upgrade your processor*, increase RAM*, get additional disk space on your primary hard drive and even add a secondary hard drive or backup drive.

The team can setup server-side crons to save you time on repeated tasks, and provide you best-fit solutions for your particular needs.
