Gamers often have to troubleshoot issues within their games of choice. Whether it be lagging issues, graphics being less than favorable, or even just an entire crash. These issues are infuriating at times, especially when you are playing a multiplayer game with friends. These past few years have brought about a huge demand for server hosting for gamers, so big groups of people can play a game together without having to worry about crashing the host. To get a deeper look at what exactly a dedicated game server is, this video puts it in easy-to-understand terms,
A shared server prevents the host’s computer from being overloaded with information from all of the other players, or clients. When you have two or three friends connected to your server, game up-time and connection accuracy are usually fine.
The problem emerges when there are a ton of players. In games like Ark: Survival Evolved and Minecraft, hundreds of people can be in a single server. This kind of multiplayer overload requires that a host have a dedicated server solely dedicated to keep the game up and running correctly for all the players. Long story short, if you want to play a game with more than 5 people quickly and easily, a server hosting service is right for you.
