You asked via PM "What do you mean by your post on my disscussion "

What I mean is if you are using 6 servers to host games you need;
1. load balancing between the servers for optimal game play
2. failover of servers
3. incoming bandwidth to support the gaming community you wish to host
4. without knowing these aspects you are walking in blind into a room you are tossing wads of money around. Might want to figure out how best to run your game hosting solution which will in turn tell you what it is going to cost initially and monthly.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

No point in buying the servers until you have decided on policy, planned for number of users, etc.

Six servers? And no mention of a load balancer? I would suggest you spend some time thinking about this before you spend any money.

With regard to your PM, I prefer to keep all discussion on the forum. The point I was making was that until you have planned a policy and determined the workload you cannot make a sensible decision about what hardware you need. As for what that policy shoul be, and how many users you expect, that is something only you can determine.

AustinRowsell started a new post instead of following the issue on this one. Here's a copy for fellow helpers:

===============================================
Subject: No gameplays just a website

The six servers are to run a website. So the six servers are web,ftp,domain 2 storage or memery also 2 back ups
===============================================

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
