I was gonna rent a server, but my dad thinks that all the hitech stuff the company is using will overload my computer and make it really slow. I know this isn't true, but I need evidence to give to my dad.
You pay us, to host your game server and you just pay on it.
We do all the high tech stuff for you, and in no way does it affect your computer's performance. (unless you have a bad internet connection)
Let's put it this way:
If you pay for lunch at fast food restaurant, would you be cooking it?
(Not the best scenario, but proves my point ^)
Yea a host will give you the RAM you ordered and the disk space/bandwidth it comes with. As well as part of the CPU, so your are renting pieces of the whole box that they put you on. They will take care of the actual machine and network for you.
