What is a dedicated game server and why you should use it?
With the continuous demand for faster CPUs, network bandwidth, GPU, or more RAM to achieve the perfect gaming environment, some visionary gamers take the multiplayer gaming experience to the next level. Dedicated game servers are currently the best solution in the gaming community, providing a more stable and worry-free gaming experience. Read to learn more about dedicated game servers, what it is, how it works, and their strengths and weaknesses.
Even while playing the most popular multiplayer games these days, there is no doubt that you will experience poor performance issues, such as lag, loading delays, server crashes, crashes, loss of saved files, game crashes, and more... These problems are a nightmare for gamers, the most demanding users who can't tolerate latency or downtime.
Some multiplayer online games require players to be hosts at the same time. If the host uses a weak computer and a poor Internet connection, all participating players will experience lag and slow loading times. Due to its limited processing power and memory storage, this weak computer cannot handle the heavy workload of coexisting as host and player. Therefore, game performance will eventually slow down significantly. Fortunately, the dedicated server only has to handle the mission as a host, which can solve the problem. It has enterprise-grade CPU and memory storage and features that provide a stable and fast connection to host your favorite multiplayer online games without delays, failures, or glitches.
Why you should choose custom dedicated gaming servers from BlueServers
No worries about server down: professional data centers provide 24/7 server monitoring, technical support, and redundant power to ensure your favorite games are up and running at all times with 99.9% uptime.
No need to worry about overheating. No matter how long you game, your data center has an advanced cooling system that allows your hardware to handle your workload.
Customized performance for your needs: choose the ideal processor, amount of RAM, and bandwidth speed to optimize your gaming experience according to your needs and requirements. We can build stuff of any complexity for you.
High level of security: the game server only runs video games and no other applications, sensitive information, or emails are installed on the server itself, minimizing the possibility of cyberattacks. The administrator is the only person who can decide who can access the device, and the hosting provider is strictly protected by cybersecurity. Don’t forget about DDoS protection! Filling your home bandwidth with a one DoS attack is easy but when it is in a data center that’s a far more complex task.
Why you shouldn’t set up a game server at home:
First of all, it’s a complex setup process. Game server requires strong technical skills that not everyone has and can be time-consuming.
Maintenance checks that must be performed periodically should be done by skilled technicians.
High cost of a home server. The initial cost for a dedicated server at home includes expensive enterprise-grade hardware equipment. If you start your server at home, you also have to consider high electricity bills, which is a pain. :)
Dedicated Game Server build requirements
For every game out there the specifications may vary, but if there is some ‘golden’ average configuration for every typical game in 2024. We suggest to consider this configuration:
- CPU with a minimum 3GHZ clock speed.
- 16GB of RAM.
- 1TB SSD - HDD is not so useful nowadays for gaming servers.
- Depending on compatibility Windows or Linux OS.
The main question is do you need a video card in order to run a server? The answer is NO! Typical game servers do not require any GUI and can be run straight through the console. Even if you require a certain GUI for your server you can always run it from the server because usually onboard video memory in CPU allows rendering a small GUI. It will be kind of laggy, but hey, it’s better than nothing! When searching for cheap dedicated game servers make sure that they are well protected from DDoS attacks, otherwise, your server may go down thanks to unknown impostors. We on the other side offer such kind of protection. Be confident with BlueServers as we will not let you down.
For all those gamers out there, BlueServer offers the service of renting a dedicated gaming server for almost any kind of game you need, if you have a server-client of course. Minecraft, ARMA, Half-Life, Among Us, and many other favorite games can be running on our servers.
