Greetings everyone, I'm just posting here to recommend a great host to everyone to use.
We here at ArcEmu use them as our host and their services thus far have been the best I've personally ever experienced.
No more paying extreme prices for mediocre hardware, now you pay good, fair prices for awesome hardware. With Limestone you save on your server, and you get more for your money.

Here are some of their current deals;

Intel Celeron E1200 1gb DDR2 80gb SATA 1000gb $99.99

For only about 10 dollars more you get a much more powerful processor;

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 1gb DDR2 160gb SATA 1000gb $109.99

Even pay a little more and get an awesome Quad Core machine like ours;

Intel Core2Quad Q9300 8gb DDR2 750gb SATA 2000gb $179.99

Allowing you to host multiple servers on one machine. This one machine is cheaper and more powerful then Softlayer's most basic server package, why? Because with other more expensive hosts you're paying for the name.

Anyways, their site is http://www.LimestoneNetworks.com
If you do decide to use them, please put your refer as ArcEmu so that way you show your pride for this community by being a valid Limestone customer and ArcEmu user.

I personally recommend this host to all, whether you'd like a VPS or a dedicated server.

Anyways, enjoy everyone.

Dedicated server hosts are good if you can afford them. However, dedicated servers are not necessary for new projects.

My company, ECAN Solutions, specifically provides WoW server hosting for $50 for up to 50 players and $100 for up to 150 players.

I know of no other companies that provide WoW hosting per se.

There not the best price for dedi, for how much you pay you might as well get something from the plant. But if your starting out i think HWestfalls idea is the best.

My links work fine.
And MWestfall please stop trying to advertise your company as it's against the forum rules, thanks.

Their basic packages come with 2TB of bandwidth which is more then enough for most starting servers. Nanouniko that is the package we're on and it's been great, very cheap compared to other hosts for what you're getting too :unsure:

This is a great host. Doesn't look like they've been around for very long, their forums are... sparse to say the least. Everything you need to know is there, though. I set up my server a few nights ago, I have only tested about 100 players but I've had 17 hours of uptime and counting with great latency and lag-free. Great down/up speeds at their Dallas center. I don't even pay for anything like CPanel, remote desktop works fine for me.

Here are my specs:

Core: Intel Celeron E1200 (2 cores at 1.6GHz)
RAM: 1GB DDR2
HDD: 80GB Sata
IP Addresses: 8 (5 usable)
Uplink: 10Mbps
Bandwidth: 1000GB

Support is, as Hasbro said, better than I expected. One post in the forums was answered in 4 minutes. They are also very quick at setting up your server, about 2 hours after I paid I was ready to go.

sry but whats the reason that someone recommend a server for 100$ that has only 1 GB Ram. And Celeron i heard about it, but only for personal computer.

https://www.server4you.de/de/start.php
one point for them ist their server for 40 €.

Hetzner .de
i recommend the server for 59,- €

Hope noone feels offendet, but i searched for sometimes now, and it seems to me that the German Serverhoster are the best (Cheap but GooDie).

Just wondering, which way to go with ArcEmu, Linux or Windows?

Any recommendations/suggestions?

Thank you.

ovh.com - if you see the dedicated servers they have.. they're really great.

They have some options for the users to choose.

Here's one of them. http://www.kemeda.pt/

4x 2x 2.66 i7 920
8GB DDR3
2 x 1 TB
Network connection is 100Mb\s ( you can get the 100Mb\s tested by me )
and you can even have 1 Gigabit ( for a little more 10 / 15 )

I think they're great. And their service is awesome.

Dedicated hosts are great I guess, but I'm more interested in what the required specs would be. I'm not interested in hosting a large community - 100 total and 20 concurrent player would probably be the most I'd ever see (or want to see, honestly). I'm a fairly knowledgeable linux admin, so I'm comfortable gauging what I'd need to host Apache/PHP/MySQL. But I'm wondering what the database, bandwidth and processor requirements for, say 10 concurrent users would be? I don't really have any way of checking this.

Also, I'm curious as to why there's no recommendation for a virtual hosting company like Slicehost or Linode. I know that there's long been a prejudice against these types of serving setups due to the shared processor space, but (for web applications at least) there's no real difference. Is there something specific about arcemu that would perform badly on virtual server? The prices compare pretty favorably with dedicated server options.

why is my home computer that can barely host 100 people better than the first two options?
Intel Celeron E1200 1gb DDR2 80gb SATA 1000gb $99.99

For only about 10 dollars more you get a much more powerful processor;

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 1gb DDR2 160gb SATA 1000gb $109.99

4gb ddr3 quad core 2.4ghz proccesor thats better than those..
