Dedicated Gaming Server
I've been put into a position where I'm doing what it takes to save the community of gamers ( around 200-300 players ) .. a person that was apart of our group for almost 7 months decided that our donations looked too good to be true and ran off with them after paying our server bill for the month. We were a little annoyed at the running off with the donations to maintain our server but really were annoyed when we found out that months prior this person had put the dedicated server in his name and had put in the order to have it turned off.
We are basically left stranded and not able to fund a dedicated gaming server in such a quick fashion. So in need to save my community I've been put into the situation of searching every inch of the internet in hopes to find a temp dedicated server until we raise the funds to get a gaming server back up and running.
I've contacted many Hosts and tried to work out something in hopes a referral deal can be reached. Since we come from such a large gaming community with thousands of people seeking dedicated servers weekly. We thought if we promoted our host we could reach a small deal. Still waiting for those replies.
Anyone have something that can support around 150 players that has remote desktop access and around 3 gigs of ram.. atleast a p4 3gig pros.

Well our community is supported through donations at the moment and since our donations vanished we are having to start from scratch. This time around however, I've been looking into ad revenue and sponsorship in hopes to raise funds that way Coming from a gaming community of private servers like Linage 2, World of Warcraft, ROSE Online, etc the need for quality dedicated servers at a good cost is always something people are looking for.
Our Community Information:
It's a World of Warcraft ( WOW ) gaming community. The age of the average player is 18-19 ( we have players whose ages range from 15 years old to in their mid to late 30's as well ) We have an average of 60 to 100 users online at any given time due to the amount the previous server could hold. The people who currently run the gaming community are college students who spend their time trying to do creative tasks to raise funds so we can maintain the quality of our server and our community.
