A comparison of the options

For your own Myth of Empires server, you’ll first have to think about which kind of server you want to use. We’ll give you a quick explanation of the different options here.

Both Cloud Servers and vServers or VPS (Virtual Private Server) are virtualized server solutions. This means that you and other users of the server share the available hardware resources. Cloud server tariffs can be adapted to your needs and scaled at any time, meaning that billing is by the minute. With VPS servers, you pay a fixed monthly amount for the services used.

A different approach is found with Dedicated Server. Here, the entire hardware resources are made available exclusively for you. However, this exclusivity is also reflected in the price. Nevertheless, the minute-by-minute billing of dedicated server tariffs ensures an ideal price-performance pay off.

For your Myth of Empires server, the Cloud Server could be an ideal choice. The high scalability of this server solution guarantees that you can flexibly change the plan such as an increased number of players at any time. The vServer is also a good choice for a game server. The monthly fixed amount means that you won’t incur unexpected costs even during the most intensive gaming sessions.
