I am thinking about renting a server. The problem is, there aren't just "servers", like one would build at home, there are game servers, web servers, etc.
Now the first question would be: can I rent a combined web and game server? Because if that's possible, I did not find anything on the internet about such service.
If I would need a separate web server, that's still okay, but then there are some other problems about the game server part. Normal hosting services may give you the possibility to host a server for a certain game, like Minecraft. But that's it. No switching options, just ONE type of server. And if you want another type of game server, rent another one. But I would need to switch between several games.
Also, normally you get some kind of interface to interact with the server. I don't like that method either, because I sometimes need more control over things I can't control in the control panels there.
I would really like to just host a server at home, but my bandwidth kind of kills that dream.
