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.
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.

A Cloud VPS is an emulation of a computer, also known as a virtual private server, that lives within a parent server and shares resources with other virtual servers. As where a Dedicated Server is a stand-alone, physical server that does not share resources. As with fixed resources, scarcity can lead to less than optimal performance for the resource-intensive application, which is why Dedicated Servers often outperform VPS instances.
This is a key mechanism for hosting buyers to determine which provider is offering the right pricing mechanism of bandwidth pricing.[according to whom?] Most Dedicated Hosting providers bundle bandwidth pricing along with the monthly charge for the dedicated server. Let us illustrate this with the help of an example. An average $100 server from any of the common dedicated bandwidth providers would carry 2 TB of bandwidth. Suppose you purchased 10 servers then you would have the ability to consume 2 TB of bandwidth per server. However, let us assume that given your application architecture only 2 of these 10 servers are really web facing while the rest are used for storage, search, database or other internal functions then the provider that allows bandwidth pooling would let you consume overall 20 TB of bandwidth as incoming or outbound or both depending on their policy. The provider that does not offer bandwidth pooling would just let you use 4 TB of bandwidth, and the rest of the 16 TB of bandwidth would be practically unusable. This fact is commonly known by all hosting providers, and allows hosting providers to cut costs by offering an amount of bandwidth that frequently will not be used. This is known as overselling, and allows high bandwidth customers to use more than what a host might otherwise offer, because they know that this will be balanced out by those customers who use less than the maximum allowed.
I don't know what you are smoking but it must be something good. I am on a Shared box and I have no idea what the CPU or ram cap is for what I am on. I am with Ascendservers and they are just a normal hosting company. I pay 43.50 USD for 50 players where we have scrims within our group. I am not even using 2 Gigs of Ram or even 5% of the CPU with 5 players in it. I bet you Ark takes more power to run than Squad. I asked them and they said its a OVH Box.
Users of VPS hosting have allocated resources just like Dedicated hosting users, however the amount of available resources on VPS servers may still not be what a website needs. For example, VPS servers often start at 2GB of RAM, whereas Dedicated servers often start with at least 4GB of RAM available. In short, Dedicated hosting allows for the same full customization and control of a VPS server, but with even more horsepower.
The OP claims that you need about 16 GB for one server, and an additional 8 GB per extra instance you want to run. This is in line with the amount of RAM the system itself will take up combined with the amount of RAM the game server will be using up after you've left it running for a couple of days. The game is - yet again - still not fully optimised, and there are still some mem. leaks present. If you don't believe me, yet again - go to the Squad Hosting Discord and ask for some usage graphs. Most of the time this amount of RAM won't be a necessity, but you could have performance issues if your RAM fills up. Not that it matters, as the dedicated boxes you'll be looking to rent will all offer more than 16 GB, anyway.

No, This is me. You really must be smoking some good shit. What makes you think these servers take So much to run? Like this game is god tier for the gaming Industry. The answer is no this game doesn't take that much to run and obviously if a server is eating that much resources you move him to a node worthy of that output. Someone must of peed in your cheerios because it took you days just to respond to me then you got Oni_Shinobi thinking he knows everything. But no, you are both not as smart as you think you are. Actually get a server and look for yourself. This game is not that much different from ark. You gonna tell me Ark needs a OVH dedicated box? No. I want you to go in the game, Join a full 80 server and ask for a admin. Ask him how much hes paying a month. It will be around 100$ that is normal.

So to anyone reading this: NO, you don't need a 500$ box to run a server, You can rent a server from a hosting company you don't even have to go with the one I am with. Yes 80 Full slotted servers take a ton of resources but not 12-16 gigs of ram. But you will be paying around 100$ for your server with 80 slots. For people looking for small 30 slot servers its cheap affordable and I have no problems.
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.

Gee, what an astute observation. A game that's been optimised more because it's core features have been completed more fully than Squad (in large part because it's not close to what Squad is trying to do in terms of replication), that has voxel-based terrain deformation can more efficiently use more threads and spread load better across them, while still being a highly demanding game server performance-wise? GEE WHILLICKERS!
A dedicated hosting service, dedicated server, or managed hosting service is a type of Internet hosting in which the client leases an entire server not shared with anyone else. This is more flexible than shared hosting, as organizations have full control over the server(s), including choice of operating system, hardware, etc. There is also another level of dedicated or managed hosting commonly referred to as complex managed hosting. Complex Managed Hosting applies to both physical dedicated servers, Hybrid server and virtual servers, with many companies choosing a hybrid (combination of physical and virtual) hosting solution. There are many similarities between standard and complex managed hosting but the key difference is the level of administrative and engineering support that the customer pays for – owing to both the increased size and complexity of the infrastructure deployment. The provider steps in to take over most of the management, including security, memory, storage and IT support. The service is primarily proactive in nature.[1] Server administration can usually be provided by the hosting company as an add-on service. In some cases a dedicated server can offer less overhead and a larger return on investment. Dedicated servers are most often housed in data centers, similar to colocation facilities, providing redundant power sources and HVAC systems. In contrast to colocation, the server hardware is owned by the provider and in some cases they will provide support for operating systems or applications.[citation needed]
