We understand web sites, businesses and projects come in all shapes and sizes. Why should your server be "one size fits all"? At A2 Hosting we let you design your perfect server. Whether you want more RAM, storage or configuration, we've got you covered. With our Flex Server Deployment, you should even have access to your server in 30-minutes or less. We bet you'll have a hard time even having a pizza delivered that fast!
Typically, a dedicated server is rented that provides a stated amount of memory, hard disk space, and bandwidth ( here meaning the number of gigabytes of data that can be delivered each month). Some hosting companies allow the renter of a dedicated server to do virtual hosting, in turn renting services on the server to third parties for their Web sites. Domain name system, e-mail, and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) capabilities are typically included and some companies provide an easy-to-use control interface.
A dedicated server, or computing server, is a machine with its own dedicated physical resources. Unlike a virtual server, which uses a portion of a machine's physical resources for its virtualization technology, a dedicated server gives you access to all of the machine's available RAM, storage, and computing power. Applied to cloud computing, dedicated server solutions can also be referred to as 'bare-metal', highlighting the physical availability of the machine's resources in contrast to standard cloud solutions based on virtual instances.
If you are a Linux master, then you probably will not need that much additional help. However, it is nice to get started up as fast as possible using some of the customized features of certain hosting providers. For example, Media Temple provides a control panel so that it is easy to monitor your website’s performance. You can install web monitoring tools on your own as well.

Ample RAM (5GB or more), e-commerce options for selling products, 24/7 customer service, and unlimited monthly data transfers are highly sought-after features, too. Many web hosts cap their dedicated monthly data transfer offerings at 16GB, which is probably fine for most users. Some web hosts offer unlimited monthly data transfers, but they are few and far between, and you need to read the terms of service very carefully to understand just what "unlimited" means to the host in question. In addition, companies that offer dedicated web hosting typically offer daily backups, security options, and malware detection and removal—all very important factors in your website's day-to-day operation.
Dedicated hosting services primarily differ from managed hosting services in that managed hosting services usually offer more support and other services. As such, managed hosting is targeted towards clients with less technical knowledge, whereas dedicated hosting services, or unmanaged hosting services, are suitable for web development and system administrator professionals.

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.

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.
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.
Develop a web-based service to provide guidance for professionals in your field. The service will showcase content in the form of blog posts and videos sorted by subject/specialty with the goal of honing their skills using your extensive experience. You also want to offer your patrons the option to host their website and email through your own hosting service and this solution should be upgradable to meet the increase in demand over time.

Support – Some dedicated hosting services come with a certain level of support. This is important as a high percentage of dedicated hosting customers use the service to host mission critical or important computing functions or websites. Effective support ensures that site disruption is kept to a minimum. A fully managed hosting provider, for example, may offer support 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.
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.

What does this have to do with server hosts running too many instances on a box, getting shit performance, then blaming it on a host of unrelated crap, including blaming OWI? Cus, you know, that has happened plenty of times so far. Which is what the various hosters in this wider community have been discussing amongst each other for the past few years.
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!
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.

A dedicated server is a single computer in a network reserved for serving the needs of the network. For example, some networks require that one computer be set aside to manage communications between all the other computers. A dedicated server could also be a computer that manages printer resources. Note, however, that not all servers are dedicated. In some networks, it is possible for a computer to act as a server and perform other functions as well.

Every Dedicated Server comes preloaded with APF. APF is a well known and respected software firewall that utilizes the built in Linux routing system (iptables). The firewall will be configured to prevent access to all ports but ones necessary for servicing the site. Certain services, like SSH, are blocked by default to help prevent common attacks. During the setup process we can add your IP addresses to allow access to whichever services you deem fit.
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.

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.
