First of all what are game server suppliers, GSPs, and why do everyone need you? If, like me, you love playing games with your other online gaming friends you generally play together online. You and your staff need a playground that will offer the online space for you to. How and where does all that information get processed? There are two chief procedures.
The first is peer to peer. Peer to peer is a well established protocol of data sharing between prepared computers. In the case of internet computer games this is where one computer acts as the server master computer if you prefer and the rest of the players’ computers send their information to the master. This offers the player hosting the game a small advantage in reaction time or reduced ping and of course after that player leaves the game the server no longer exists as it was dependent on his relationship, historically this has been known as a ‘listen server’.
Some games firms like Activision and EA offer their own online official orated dedicated servers in which they have their own machines within their data centre hosting official servers they command and admin. Console games generally have their own dedicated servers provided by the programmers or peer to peer solutions in certain cases like Modern Warfare 3 and 2. But some servers are supplied by those who prefer to have personal control over how their match server is setup. These come in two choices. Either the person has a leased or owned machine and hosts the game host
Which are online servers?
A server is a machine operating in a data centre DC with a high Bandwidth connection to the server hosting for Minecraft and a redundant power source to keep things online 24 hours a day, 365 days annually. This permits plenty of players to connect to a single location to all play together. GSP’s host their game servers on machines at a data centre.
Total Dedicated Server
You can rent a complete dedicated server, this gives you root access to a Windows Server machine via Remote Desktop Connection. This is for advanced users as setting up a game server with steam command and configuring the firewall may be a time consuming process but for large communities and clans that is the only alternative. Total control over your game servers, root access to all the files, something you will never get with shared game server hosting. It includes a cost, however, around the 100 a month mark so get those contributions flowing to cover the hardware.
