I'm deeply impressed with your extent of knowledge of this subject and I would like to say THANKS :rock: . $500 sounds so much better than all that fancy stuff I surfed on the web for(highest i say was $45,000) lol, I guess I'm gonna start saving up. That cleared up all my doubts except one. I may have misread or not understood, but you have to pay a fee to run the server to get on some hosting site datalist? I thought you could just hook everything up like a regular computer and call it good, but what do I know? lol. Anyway man, thanks bunches cause I was totally confused on the subject :confused:.
No no no no no!
The Datacentre host actually puts your machine in their building and hooks it up directly to the net using their phat pipe, then you pay a fee for your data usage, that's why you need rack mount case, so they can just slip it in their server stack.
:cya: :cya: :cya:

Have fun :cya: :cya: :cya:
phat pipe == A lot of upload/download speed
(sorry apocalypse_kid...couldn't resist :lol: )
See, even though you get a server for $500, it will do you no good UNLESS you have an awsome connection (a computer for a $150 can host 6 people lol).
So, let me make sure I understand you correctly. You can buy a server for $500 and then send it off somewhere to put on a server stack where a bunch of technitions make sure it opperates correctly, and while you remotely control it and whatnot from your home PC? I wonder what the going rate is for that fee is? Wow apocalypse_kid, you really should make a post somewhere explaining all of this cause you definately have a knack for it. I'm sure you have helped me and other people understand servers, so, if I may be so bold, on behalf of me and our fellow forumers I would like to thank you. Right on!:rock:
And for those of you who have been following this tread and wondered what the process of getting your own servers built and installed is actually like here is a description of the process from a person who has just completed a major server upgrade.
Have a read through, I'm sure you will find it interesting.
P.S. if internet PrOn offends don't bother going, there are some explicit banners (now everyone will go :lol: )
:cya: :cya: :cya:
lol, that is what I would like to do, build my own server like he did. I think it would be cheaper to build than to buy ready-made servers. I'm gonna go surfing around and learn about all this stuff, so when I want to do it I will be ready lol. Thanks for the link!! :dance:
