This thread is intended for those who wish to purchase a server from a host.
If you are trying to start a server from home your looking in the wrong place.

anyway, I noticed a few threads asking where to buy DP servers. I think getting a nice clump of information in the same spot might alleviate at least a few unneeded posts. Im starting off with a few that i know about but if anyone else would like to offer any additional links or recommendations post up and ill update the list.

V,

You might want to post/include pricing and specific packages that will facilitate the running of a dp server as not all packages will.

Might also want to specify WinBloz vs. *nix.

Just a thought

^ the answer to windows or linux is to: choose linux.

But really if people are getting a server and wouldn't know what to choose, then they can look at this pretty table with colors on it. http://webdesign.about.com/od/webhosting/l/bl_windows_v_linux.htm   Tongue    and usually they have details to their W vs. L servers on the hosting sites.

I prefer Linux for hosting, mainly because I know it better than Windows hosting.  Tongue

Either way, add GoDaddy to that list.  I use them for website hosting, and I'm satisfied so far.  They have both Virtual and Regular dedicated servers for both Windows and Linux.  You can even customize your box's hardware.

Virtual: http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/hosting/virtual.asp?ci=9013&display=virtual
Dedicated: http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/hosting/dedicated.asp?ci=9014&display=dedicated

V,

I wouldn't even think of using a winblowz box for a game server so I really wouldn't worry about it.

Even in their server pricing they give Digital Paint its own option. Fancy.

added godaddy to the list
I like the free ssl cert promotion.

XCG isnt a bad place but they tend to get weird with answering emails. There not a bad place to start tinkering.
Anything higher than 16 players you might as well move onto a vps.

I had a dedicated nix box with them for years.

SUpport was awesome: Call was answered in 2 rings or less, they asked if it was a linux or winblowz issue, and then transfered you to another live person in the states.

Actually no. I'm pretty sure that's Superman's pub, or the 3 Inches of Blood server is what it's called now.

You should add the location of servers down. Something simple i.e. by continent (North America, Europe etc...)
