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.
Dedicated servers sound pretty great, right? They are. That said, you should be aware of their relatively high prices. Setting up shop on a dedicated server will likely cost you more than $100 per month; shared servers, on the other hand, are far less expensive. The cheapest web hosting services will lease you space on the web for well under $10 per month. In addition, you'll need to handle firewalls and maintenance yourself unless you opt for a managed server, which costs even more.

The two environments have plenty of overlapping qualities, but most importantly Dedicated Server render greater security, customization and excellent availability. With granular control, you are free to customize hardware components like disk space or RAM and installation of unique operating systems. More substantial computing power (CPUs) and disk space allow Dedicated servers enhanced performance for high amounts of traffic. When uptime and performance are critical to your business Dedicated Servers are second to none for hosting.
Right, but we're talking about running full Squad servers here, not 30-man INF. layer-only deathmatch servers for you and a few chums. You want to run a small server? By all means go ahead and rent one from a GSP. And hope you get a decent one that doesn't load so many customers on one box that you still get performance issues (even with your lower player count) due to I/O bottlenecking on the box you're on.
One thing you will get is a free SSL certificate with each server. You can pick from RAM, RAID, CPU, and other storage configurations through the website. The pans go up to $429 for a high-end enterprise server. Configurations start with up to 2TB of disk space, 16GB of RAM, and 5TB of monthly data transfers. This is rather low compared to the unlimited plans or standard 15TB of monthly data transfers on other hosting provider plans.
You should not have any congestion on a dedicated server, since you are on a dedicated server. With shared hosting, you may have other websites taking up bandwidth on the server and even crashing it if something suddenly goes viral on their website. With your hosting provider and a dedicated server, the only congestion should be felt is if you have gone viral.

Update: You can test their network via their websites IP (162.216.176.6). Zeneva are currently offering the below dedicated server as a low end box exclusive.

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.

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. Our Managed Hosting team will also help you setup custom configurations like database clusters, software or hardware RAID, firewalls, enhanced security (CSF/LFD or OSSsec), implement NGINX, optimize your server and platform for up-time, set up Varnish, tune your LAMP environment and more. The team can setup server-side crons to save you time on repeated tasks, and provide you best-fit solutions for your particular needs.
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.
RAM and fast multi-core CPUs allow a system to do more simultaneously, for example serving more visitors on your site. Plan on increasing performance by optimizing with RAM-caching? – More RAM means getting a larger, super-fast cache for your server. Performance isn't the most important thing to consider – your server must not corrupt data. We only use ECC (Error Correction Code) RAM because it's designed to protect against data corruption by detecting and automatically correcting errors while data is written to the memory. In addition to error correction, our Commercial Class Servers use Registered ECC memory which allows our servers to reach extremely high RAM capacities to provide all the resources you need for your project.

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.

Lastly, what kind of support does the hosting provider give to the customer? Customer support should be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, especially if you are running an online business or a game that supports multiple users. You will want a hosting provider that makes it easy to get in touch should something go wrong or you want to upgrade before something does go wrong.

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.
If you register a domain with Bluehost when signing up for a hosting account, there is a domain fee that is non-refundable. This not only covers our costs, but ensures that you won't lose your domain name. Regardless of the status of your hosting service, you'll be free to manage it, transfer it after any required lock periods, or simply point it elsewhere at your convenience. You retain ownership of your domain until the end of its registration period unless you elect to extend it. 
The game hosting companies cost maybe 20 - 30 dollars less than going the dedicated route, while you get the lovely priviledge of having to share the hardware you're on with other customers also paying for sub-par performance, too many instances running on the machine you're on. This results in crap performance (read: unplayable) for games that place a high demand on servers, especially in the case of Squad, with regular dips in server TPS to levels where rubberbanding of everything occurs. Aside from having to share your hardware, there's the fact many of you game hosting providers knowingly advertise specific hardware as capable of running Squad and offer "Squad servers" for rent that have CPUs that are known and tested to be too slow in IPC / single core performance to properly run the game with a full 80-man server.
A gaming server is a dedicated server used for online games such as World of Warcraft or Minecraft. The benefit of a dedicated server for gaming is that your server is often more stable than the game client itself, which is impacted by multiple players and resources. For a smooth gaming experience that you control, a dedicated server is the way to go.
