I'm an independent game developer and I don't yet have a lot of money to buy myself a very cool high-speed and low-latency internet connection along with a powerful server machine to place somewhere in the world to host my very own game's server application for my fans to play on.
I know it's possible to rent a server for an existing popular game (for example, Team Fortress 2), but how about renting a server for my own game that I'm developing? Are there services specifically for that, or should I just rent some general purpose something and go from there?
Such a server should be:
- Easy to update
- With a low-latency for a specific region (I'm planning on renting EU and US servers)
