I ran a Windows game server at my shop with TCAdmin on it. Not really a hard thing to learn. If you have a server, tcadmin, website, and billing software setup, you can start selling game servers. I never sold any game servers. It was for my own use.

I know Im bumping an old thread here, but I want to chip in on the game hosting bit.

I used to co-own a Minecraft hosting service a few years back... I dont think I'd ever do it again.

Between random kids spamming our ticketing system demanding free servers for "sponsorship", our site was always trying to get hacked(and was a few times), a few "companies" straight up stole our website on numerous occasions, and we got DDoS'd into shutting down. We paid for all sorts of DDoS protection but at that point we were pulling in much of a profit and it wasnt worth it anymore.

That being said, I learned a ton from those experiences so I guess in the end it wasnt all bad.

Now I'm sure not all gaming communities are as toxic as the Minecraft hosting community is/was(I dunno I've been gone from that scene for a while), but this is just my 2 cents.

Feedback wise:

As stated by others, the site is definitely professional looking and works very well. My only gripe would be the, for lack of a better word, bland logo. Something a bit bigger, bolder, and maybe a bit more colorful would be refreshing. :smiley:

Thanks for your feedback. I'd definitely be willing to replace the logo, but I need someone to make them. :yum: I'm no good with graphics. I'd be willing to pay for it if it's good enough.
