A good way to populate a css server?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So i got fios recently and i decided to host some cz and css servers at home.. mainly because i want to put my extra upload bandwidths into good use.. i host them from my home server pc which is running 24/7.. had the servers up for a few days.. it's been slow recently still... any suggestions of how to boost up new servers??

These are my current servers..

let me know if those names are even decent lol.. and let me know if you're interested in any of those servers smile.gif

any help will be appreciated.. thanks in advance

Use maps that people dont often play. Advertise all the ups in the name of the server. Add a fastDL server for the maps. Make sure that the gameplay on your server is good and that the admins do their jobs properly. Wait. tongue.gif

Are you on a static IP? Are you constantly downloading/uploading? Any dips in bw will ruin gaming performance for everyone. If you are on a dynamic ip people who add your server into their favorites won't be able to get to it the next time your ip changes.

Get some friends to play with you, it'll populate quick after that.

Why use maps that ppl don't often play? I thought popular maps can grab attentions better lol.. anyways.. all the ups are pretty much being told on the title.. what i'm afraid is that fastDL might lead ppl to think that i have bunch of customs in the server and most of them will not join because of that..

yup it's on static ip.. not much of downloading really.. my speed is 43/33 ish.. should be enough for these servers, perhaps more.. i even had my server machine on highest priority in my router's QoS setting.. that should help a bit..

been playing w/ frds.. it grabbed some random players.. but not much..

In that case then great! You could try that zombie mod (really popular) to get your name out there and use that server redirect mod on all of your servers.

Do you have stats?

gameme or hlxcommunity would make players happy they can track how they did, and others can just opt out of stats tracking if they choose.

HLXcommunity is free if you want to go for it, and you have a good infrastructure for it. Just need a webserver with MYSQL db and some time to configure all your servers.
