What is Game Server hosting?
Game server hosting in Canada. Host your Teamspeak, Ventrilo, Mumble, or any game server in our high performance data center. A game server is used by clients or gamers to run multiplayer computer games over the Internet. The servers are hosted either locally or remotely. Those hosted locally can be accessed by those in the local Intranet, and those hosted remotely can be accessed from across the world. Computer and video games playable on game servers often require membership fees in return for access.
A game server can be defined in three ways: as a computer program used to serve the requests of clients, as a computer that hosts such programs, or as a software/hardware system used for databases, files and mail. All three definitions tend to be interdependent on one another. A game server will be both the physical computer used to host the program and the program itself.

Why use a Virtual Server for gaming?
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a simulation of hardware by a host operating system that allows another operating system to run on it. What that means for developers is that a Web hosting company can host multiple "Virtual" servers on one physical, or "host", server.
VPS hosting plans fill the gap between entry level shells and full colocated or leased Dedicated Servers. Virtual Servers are perfect for game servers because the host can allocate the needed bandwidth, disk space, CPU, and RAM needed to run the game. It can save a user several hundreds of dollars a year instead of buying a full dedicated server, while still receiving the same full access at a portion of the cost.
Select from a variety of operating systems
If you are moving to a VPS from one of our shared web hosting or reseller hosting packages, CentOS is a great choice. Not only is a CentOS virtual server renowned for its stability, but anything you host on our shared platform is easy to transfer across with full compatibility.
If you run Ubuntu on your computer at home, then an Ubuntu virtual server is a logical step to take as the web version is similar to that on your local machine. Easy for newcomers to Linux to pick up, Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux operating systems and there are plenty of support communities online if you need help. Ubuntu is very popular for running Game Servers, and ease of use.
Debian is a versatile yet stable operating system which is highly regarded by the Linux security community. Using Debian as your OS gives you the freedom to explore a wide range of frameworks and develop for a wide range of applications.
These are the most common Linux operating systems used for gaming. They allow a easier use, and more packages are readily available needed for the games. And allow the most stability
