Uploading standalone server to an ftp
Hey i was just wondering if its possible to upload the standalone server files to a websites ftp server ( eg. ) and get the host to execute srcds.exe and run a dedicated server from there? ive heard it can be done but im not sure it its true...
If u can send the whole server somewhere, then have someone or something start it, then yeah its possible.
consider this: many web hosts use celeron/sempron/low-grade procs and serve hundreds of sites with these boxes. (a celeron box can handle more than a few hundred low traffic, static content sites) as soon as you start srcds and suck up processor all the websites will grind to a halt. they will get complaints and your server will be stopped.

now this is if you even get them to start your process which i highly doubt. however if you get it going more power to you!!!
