Well of course my dedicated server is unreliable and unable to support the new surge of traffic my LotGD installation has been receiving.  Any recommendations for a good dedicated server provider/hosting company?  I was thinking of going with one of these plans:

http://www.serverbeach.com/catalog/powerline.php?os=debian

Any suggestions? www.iicinternet.com is my current host and they're crap.

Thanks!  Grin

Well, whatever you choose, make sure that you read its CPU-usage policy. That's what gets most people who host LotGD sites.

Also, I'd recommend that you get a host plan that allows atleast 50gigs of bandwidth, minimum..Even if you're a small lotgd. That way you've got plenty of it to grow into.

On our server...we've got about 450 accounts. Probably only about 100 sign on regularly, and probably only about 50 play hardcore everyday. And we burn around 40gigs per month.

Though my numbers of players are the lowest I expect. I'm sure more than 50 players really play, but that's just a rough estimate.

You are talking about a shared plan.

Now if you want a dedicated server, I'd recommend www.servermatrix.com - cheap and a quota of 1000 gigs/month, with an 80 gig hard drive.

Uhm, she said a hosting company aswell. Either way, what I said is just suggestions, so hopefully she wont have to go through the same things again. And giving her an idea about what we go through with ours.

We've been talking with http://bliksemhosting.com for about a week now and they seem like a suitable host.  They only allow game servers on the VPS and dedicated servers though.

Don't have that much money trying to think of a cheap host I've got members who want to donate. But I don't really need them to. I get 10,000 MB Traffic But thats it not so good I guess thats for 3 dollars a month. Though... 3 dollars a month is cheap and  I guess I can upgrade to a bigger plan if I want to.

You guys do realize those links you referred me to are actually more expensive than serverbeach? Also they don't offer AMD processors or as much bandwidth.  BTW I'm a guy. Wink

The plan I'm getting with serverbeach offers 80 GB of disk space, 2 Gigs of RAM, AMD processor and 2 Terabytes of bandwidth. I think that should be sufficient. Thanks everyone!

This is best done by PM or email, Zach, not in a public forum.  Thanks.

PowWeb offers 5 gigs of bandwidth a day and they work quite well for me.

They're quite cheap considering everything you get.

I wouldn't mind if you listed tbrumfield as a reference if you sign up, because I get a kick-back.

Seems like a great deal, but I host more than one website, so it does not offer enough disk space or bandwidth.   Tongue

I have been using ServerBeach (a RackSpace subsidiary) for two months now, and everything has been excellent.  I had some trouble configuring my server because they install Debian awkwardly, but that's easily fixed get RedHat if you're not picky like me Wink.
There plans might be a bit too high-end or pricy for your average lotgd server but if you do decide to go with them use this link:

http://www.serverbeach.com/catalog/index.php?REF=BV8P9AY3ER

You get $100 off of your hosting after staying with them for 3 months and I get a lovely discount too. Smiley

I just tried to help someone with setting up lotgd on powweb.  The mysql database wasn't supporting innodb which is required for the game to install and run properly.  As long as you can get them to give you permissions for innodb you are probably fine.  If not I'd find someone else to host.
