Intersect Hosting Solutions - Easiest way to host your games!

Recommended Posts

No, sorry, webhosting is not a service I want to get into. There are thousands of companies that already do it, and they are doing it cheaper and better than I could. 

 

I’m offering Intersect hosting because it isn’t offered by anyone else.

IHS Services will go down for a few hours between Nov. 22-25 while we upgrade our servers!   I will update this thread with the exact timing as soon as I know more.  Please plan accordingly, and we apologize for the inconvenience!

Pls I need a small baby server again 

 

Updated the stock, we actually have plenty of slots available.

 

Also, after the B5 launch my services will be upgraded to provide MySQL databases automatically and secure/encrypted connections to server api ports via ssl.

 

Prices for all tiers will be rising a little bit after those changes are live to make hosting these games a little more manageable.

 

Purchase your server at the lower prices now and you will retain the current/cheaper rates even after access to the new features are live as a reward for being loyal customers and helping this service take off.

My services have been updated and are ready to support B5!  The upgrade process is still manual, and the easiest route is to download your server via the control panel, do the migration on your local machine, and upload the migrated server to my platform.

 

If you have any trouble please let me know, I'm happy to help!

Really nice, I might use this in future. I wonder how much players it can handle at the time. I saw games like orake 2D using deticated server for 70 usd per month to hold 10 players lol.

Orake is very different from Intersect. Orake was based in vb6. Vb6 apps only use a single thread. They probably had a dedicated sever with a good cpu with many cores (like all PCs these days) and Orake could only ulilize one of them. Things have changed a lot since then.

so this means intersect engine can use cheaper servers with less requirements and get good quality?

 

Not necessarily.

 

CPUs are made up of cores.  Older computers had processors with a single or dual cores.  Today, a lot of cpus are at least quad core, but some have upwards of 8. Each core can generally process 2 or more threads at any given time.

 

If I had a 4 core processor, and my Intersect server had 40 active threads then the work load could be split between each of my cores so each core only handles 10 threads a piece.

 

If I had a 12 core server processor and my Intersect server had 40 active threads then each of my cores would only have to handle 3-4 threads a piece.  More work is done quicker making the 12 core processor a good idea.

 

For VB6 apps which are single threaded the work cannot be split up over all the other cpu cores.  If you have a 4 core processor and you run a vb6 app than your vb6 app will only use 1 core and the other 3 cores are a waste.

 

If you try to run that VB6 app on a nice dedicated server with a 12 core processor and that VB6 app only uses 1 core then the other 11 cores are wasted.

 

So what I'm trying to say is that on more expensive dedicated servers Intersect will have an insane advantage over the vb6 engine alternatives, but on the cheaper servers the advantage won't be as significant.

 

It's also funny because if a gaming pc has 4 really fast cores and the expensive dedicated server has 12 decent cores that are slower than the individual gaming pc cores then the consumer pc will actually be better for vb6 mmos. (Which is counter intuitive and really messed up!)

Yes, modified versions of the server will work with my service.

 

It is important to note though that your server will NOT run well if the modifications made are terribly inefficient :P

Hello, 

 

I wanted to host my game on your EU servers but I just saw that they are not avaible now. 

 

Is it wort it to host my game on your NA servers although my players live in France? 

100ms would be OK for us. 

 

Thanks.
