Server Type

You will start by determining which server type to choose. Hybrid, Cloud, and Dedicated Servers are all great options for game servers and the decision largely comes down to the game you will be running, the number of players that will consistently use the server, and the budget.

Hybrid and Cloud servers are great for a small group of friends looking to game together on a budget. Hybrid Servers are similar to Virtual Private Servers, but there are fewer tenants per server to deliver better performance. Cloud Servers tend to deliver better performance for game servers on a budget as resources are spread across an entire cluster of servers.

Dedicated Servers are the ideal choice if you’re looking to offer game servers to your clients, or if your game will host many players. As the only user on the server, dedicated servers guarantee the best performance for gaming. We often have promotions on dedicated servers, so they may not be as expensive as you might think.

Processor Requirements

CPU requirements will vary between games, so start by researching the hardware requirements for the game. Typically, a lower amount of CPU cores at a higher clock speed works best as many games do not effectively spread resources between multiple cores. Some games can utilize HyperThreading, so you would be able to leverage a broader range of processors in those cases. Consult the website of the developer of the game to see whether the game supports multi-threading.

Hard Drive Type

When selecting a hard drive for a dedicated game server, look no further than an SSD. Solid State Drives deliver blazing fast /O times, reducing game loading time and latency. Gaming performance can be further improved by setting up RAID. RAID allows for data operations to be spread across multiple drives. This increases performance and also adds redundancy in the event of disk failure. Remember, ServerMania is here 24x7 in the unlikely event of hardware failure so you never have to worry about being alone when you need help.

Network Routes

Game servers need to be hosted on premium network routes and the network port speeds to deliver a superior gaming experience. ServerMania uses only the best network providers in each of our data centers to deliver just that. Our 300 Gbps network is fully redundant, and is connected to multiple Tier 1 network providers. What that means for you is that it always stays online - no matter what happens.

Our data centers provide the highest network infrastructure availability, 24x7x365 support and Enterprise-grade security which enables us to provide a 100% Network Uptime Guarantee.

Network Speed and Bandwidth

You’ll need to determine which network port speed and monthly bandwidth requirements your dedicated game server will need. Review the bandwidth requirements of the game you wish to host to pick the best bandwidth plan for your needs. Most games will provide a per player bandwidth utilization estimate.

This should help you decide how much monthly bandwidth and the port speed required. You can always upgrade later on as your needs grow, so don’t worry about this plan being set in stone.

DDoS protection appliances

DDoS Protection

Every server on the internet is vulnerable to a Distributed Denial of Service attack. Server botnets target a server in order to take it offline, often for a ransom. Don’t let these nasty attacks interrupt an important game. Adding DDoS protection to your game hosting services provides advanced protection against all known DDoS attack types.
Traffic is continuously filtered through ServerMania’s DDoS protection appliances, resulting in no delay in protection when an attack begins. DDoS attacks are typically detected and mitigated within 0 to 90 seconds.

By using our DDoS protection services, you can rest easy

There are many reasons why you should not host a game server on your own computer:

  • Reduced Cost: Once you factor in power, hardware, and network costs, it is often cheaper to host a game server with ServerMania instead of on your own computer.
  • 24x7 Uptime: A dedicated server is online 24 hours a day, so you don’t have to worry about keeping a computer running or your internet cutting out. These servers utilize 1Gbps fully symmetrical fiber connections, which provide significantly superior speed and ping times compared to home networks.

Once you have selected a server type, you can order that server on our website and will have your server login details shortly. Finally, you can install the game server software and begin gaming.

+Which Operating System should I choose for my server?

Investigate which Operating System is required for the game you wish to setup a game server for. Some game servers support a variety of Operating Systems, so you should choose the one you are most familiar with and that is most frequently updated. CentOS, Ubuntu, and Debian are the most popular options when it comes to Linux Operating Systems. We also offer Windows Operating Systems for less tech-savvy individuals.

Only some games allow you to setup your own game server. Certain games like Fortnite and Warcraft do not allow the installation of a remote server and host the servers that run the game themselves.
