NFO is the best imo. You may pay a bit more, but it's quality stuff.

That's where my server is, and that's where it'll stay.

NFO just has better servers all around compared to any other company I've used for FF. Clan/Gameservers = crap. They have decent support, but their servers are slow and shitty.

if you're willing to manage the game server yourself, i ran a vps from linode with 0 problems for $19.99 / m. In fact, I loaded that bitch up with like 4 different game servers all around 18 slots and never had any problems so I'm convinced a good vps is a better deal if you know how to setup the game server. esp with older games that have a very small load

from my clans expirence with nfo i would never suggest using NFO ever in a miillion years. however thats only one perspective there are many happy customers that would disagree. really from customer to customer usually will find a server comapny that doesn't give them the shaft. then stick with that one. there will always be one that does. good luck do your homework thats the most important thing.

i don't recommend the virtual bullshit but for what your doing its probably the best option for a large clan its not.

http://www.lowpings.net

the company my clan uses. so much better luck than we had with nfo however its a server box VvV uses and its expensive. we have 7 bf3 servers on it and it doesn't even get to 20 percent cpu ussage. (however it costs 250/mo unless you do alittle bargaining. )

this sounds so much better than being limited and having to ask for help instead of having full control. how complicated is it to learn the ins and outs?

http://www.srcds.com/ is a good place to start.

Edit: Although apparently some of those tutorials are from 2004...

you will also want to be familiar with linux, at least enough to navigate the filesystem. the srcds tutorials will get you going with a server at least
