What should I do with this connection?. - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Grey area, I think as long as you don't profit from it nothing will come of it.

But don't quote me on it

Just set-up more gameservers and sell them to people for clans, alot of things you could do that I can't think of, I think I blocked them out when I realised my internet was awful.

ROFL, that is funny, I think im in the same boat as you ^

To OP, well, if you host game servers, you are only going to be using a potion on the connection, unless you get source servers going that has like 100 users on permanently, then you might see a drop in performance. Why not have your own website hosting? ie sell it off to other users, they will need to just buy their domain(you could do that for them and just charge them for it) and slap their websites onto the net, that way you can even make money from it.

Have to charge a ridiculously small amount though compared to the big hosts that offer a much higher reliability, cPanel, smtp, dns etc

A dollar a month at most

Why not downgrade the connection & save a bit of cash? Seems like you don't have a use for it, why pay for it?

As you can see I can't go smaller if I want to have a static IP. I do not want a dynamic.

Theres no other suggestions?.

but why do you need a static IP? You don't seem to be doing anything that requires it...

I host game servers and websites. It's just not maxing my connection speed, which I would like to do. (Upload mainly)

Plus, I would rather have a static IP then a dynamic that changes once a day. So mostly it's just preference.. I'm not complaining about the price, I'm just stating I can't go any lower right now since I have a static IP.

Actually dynamic IPs rarely change - my connection is on a dynamic IP and I have had the same address for the last 5 months. I still have DynDNS just in case though. Although if you host game servers you should be sticking to static though.

The only thing you can really do is host more of the same to better use your connection...

My dynamic IP was changing daily which is why I went static.
