Game Dedicated Servers

What are the rules about uploading game software (such as steam/hl counterstrike server) and configuring/running using SSH.

Is this a) Within the rules, and b) Can it be done.

Thanks

Ok, that has made it slightly clearer, but I’m not sure that the game server would have a significant amount of CPU usage - Steam Dedicated server for CS1.6 would be pretty old, and is not an intensive, complex game.

Can a dreamhost person clear this up?

You’re probably better emailing them to get a reply. The enterance message says they don’t often come here.

Your subject mentions dedicated servers… not quite sure whether you mean installing a gaming server on a shared hosting machine, or installing one on a dedicated machine (http://dreamhost.com/dedicated/). The latter would be absolutely fine; we have several dedicated customers who run gaming servers.

On shared hosting… generally no.
