12 players for 3 months (slight cheaper than per month).

Has anyone rented a server before?

Any hints and tips?

What kind of ping do you get to this?

Test IP's:
Dallas Qwest - 65.113.116.10
Dallas InterNap - 65.113.117.70

I chose Qwest

What kind of ping do you get.

The reason I chose them was basically area and they seem very much into support - I was talking to a rep on IRC.'

*edit* should be up in one hour!

I'll post the IP once it's fully setup - just a matter of uploading custom maps/skins, and setting up a config file.

How much it set you back?

Hmm... so do you get access to the game .cfgs to make changes and all that or is it done by them at setup?
Interesting idea but a little expensive for a public server... it'd be cheaper to get a static IP from your ISP!

Yes, full FTP access.

If I just get a static IP from my ISP I'd have to purchase a lot of bandwidth, setup a machine, etc.

These servers they run use Linux on powerful systems, and are right at the base of all the bandwidth.

Plus any machine upkeep is their responsibility.

I got it for approx $150 for 3 months - not bad I say.

Check out the server right here:

I'll be adding more custom maps and stuff over the next few days
