srcds hosting
ok so i have srcds up and running well my server is stable. my question is what if i want to sell srcds servers. i am wanting to host a few servers and rent them out to people. does anyone know how to start that? i know i need a website any ideas on where to start with that? anything will be helpful ^_^
I'd prefer to just start reading threads about other GPS's on these forums, so you'll get an idea of what you're about to start.

A website isn't a bad idea, if you can design/code it yourself it would be perfect for you.

If you wanna start selling them, it's a good idea to get costumers. Also, havin' cheap servers and their quality should be good.
Keep in mind that selling servers requires that you create a company.
You would also need to colo all your server in data centers. It's not a simple or easy way to make money. Rather, it's very expensive and risky.

Indeed. And is very time consuming.

Just because you get your old computer running that you pulled out of your closet, and it kind of runs SRCDS, that doesn't mean you can make some extra cash hosting servers Toungue

Also, for money sake, if you are going to colocate, don't colo a server under a quad core. You just won't get the bang for your buck. I have a quad core being colocated right now, and I have infinite possibilities from that box Toungue
lol well not everyone has an old pc in the closet, some have new pc's as well. . . haha

well i have the resources and money to start it up however i am not all that good at web design and coding so that presents a major issue. as far as reading things on the forums ive been looking for a few days not with little success
You will be able to get a designer and coder for your website. (Paying him/her).

As Mooga said, it's risky!
