While you could host a game server on your PC, sometimes it’s more convenient to have a cloud server running 24/7. Game server hosting can be surprisingly cheap, especially if you’re just looking to play with a few friends.

Dedicated vs. Shared Hosting
Dedicated hosting is when you rent out an entire rack of a server—or, often, a portion of that rack’s resources. You’ll often be given detailed specifications about what exactly you’re buying, and you’ll generally be paying a bit extra compared to shared hosting.

Shared hosting runs multiple instances of a game server across multiple server racks, allowing the hosting provider to save money and provide a low price. However, it’s not always clear what specs you’re getting, and you can run into congestion issues if your server suffers heavy load.

If you’re looking to set up a server for you and a couple of friends, we recommend you save some money and get shared hosting. If you’re looking to have a lot of people playing on your server, you should try shared hosting first and upgrade to dedicated hosting if it’s necessary.

Depending on what provider you buy your server from, you may also get managed hosting, which is when the provider builds tools to set up, configure, and manage your server automatically, such as automatic restarts and easy mod installing.

Shared Hosting Options
Managed game server hosting panel
Nodecraft
All of the options listed here are also managed hosting. You won’t have to worry about setup too much, as it should be relatively straightforward or just handled for you completely.

Gameservers.com: Very cheap servers for small use cases, as you’re charged by the number of player slots you want. A decent control panel, but no DDOS protection.
Low.ms: A compromise between dedicated and shared hosting, while still providing a managed control panel for most games. You’ll know the specs you’re getting, but you’ll have to pay extra for a dedicated thread. They also put branding in your server title, which costs $2 to remove, but you might be fine with it if you’re trying to save some money.
Nodecraft: A shared hosting provider that doesn’t charge per slot. They have different tiers, segmented by RAM and the number of instances you can run. In fact, you can host multiple servers on one tier, RAM permitting.
Whatever option you go with, make sure it has a managed control panel and supports the game you want.

Dedicated Hosting Options
Dedicated hosting allows you a lot more freedom and control. You can host multiple game servers off one box, as well multiple different games, and since you have full access to the box, you can even host a web server to run a website off the server, or anything else non-game related.

OVH: Only two locations, Canada and France, but offering very powerful servers for the price. If you don’t care about having the latest gen hardware, you can rent their old equipment from their sister company SYS. Both will be completely fresh servers, and you’ll have to set everything up yourself.
Gameservers.com: Though this company focuses on shared hosting, it also offers dedicated servers as an option. You’ll even get the managed control panel, though this is optional and will restrict your access to only the control panel.
Amazon Web Services: More of a premium, enterprise option. If you’re a game developer looking to host servers, AWS GameLift is worth looking into. If you’re looking for a single, generic server, EC2 will be more suitable. And if you’re a student, you can get $100 in free credit with a .EDU email.

Cloud hosting for gaming from http://en.dignusdata.com/ has many benefits. The player does not need to buy expensive gaming equipment, he can manage everything the existing one. So if the user does not have enough funds for a new computer, cloud gaming can be a good solution. With it, a game can be launched immediately from any location and any device connected to the Internet.
