just a plain server for 500 people that is s*** you can run it from your own home if you want lol maybe like 300 to 500$ lol.


man you need to add way more details tham that.This is a few questions that could help

You buying/making a brand new server or buying a old project email database etc. How much time you got to run the server per day, week, Or hiring someone to run it for you, were you want it to be host, you want proxy servers or just some local host, proteccion, what type of security you want to run, type of art you want to run on the website/server sprites etc, how much you plan to use on the website, how much you want to use on the adverstise, how much you plan to pay staff, type of donations you want to run.

all depends on your budget lol


Now just try to add as many details as possible so people can give you a decent answer

Your proper question should be how much time you should put into creating and running your own server, not just throw money at it.  There is always the worst scenario that you have nobody (left) working for you.  Do you have the time and ability to keep the server running and not close it shortly after you found out the work is too much for you.

This would be beneficial read: http://forum.ratemyserver.net/server-discussion/how-to-make-a-failed-ro-pserver/

Let me make a little disclaimer (this is not baking, is not a recepy and there arent steps set on stone for s*** to work) but just suggestions that you need to take whit a grain of salt a big one.
let me see the list is not for me to answer, is for you to google, check it out, use it as a base, add your own questions and be like nike and JUST do it.

 
please read this link that YC shared http://forum.ratemyserver.net/server-discussion/how-to-make-a-failed-ro-pserver/  FOLLOW THIS STEPS ;=)


PD: Now if you got some money and want to talk bussines whit someone that knows the numbers, have run several servers and knows whats up, you could talk to him is quite popular on RMS comunity and can actually get a decent server going for 500 people or more there are only a few on that list lol most of them are  100 % drama related but their work is real

all i can suggest you with my experience is get a dedicated server there are host out there that cost around 99$ per month + tax
i also suggest you to look for a host with ddos protection. many envious server owner are out there once they see your server rising
you will have to deall with multiple attacks per day. (and thats very stressful if you dont have believe me)

Doesn't have to be anywhere close to $100, if you don't expect to serve 500 players on the first day.  Honestly, in the worse case an empty server doesn't use any more resource than what you get from a $5/mo vps (not saying you should go for those ...).  Get something in the medium range and upgrading later as the population grow will save you some money.

You can only put so much money into a server before time and skill takes over and outweighs it.
My friends did a RO server project a year and a bit ago. One of them offered as much money as they needed, but they found actually they barely ever used the money, just to hire spriter here and there, occasional source work.
The biggest thing was time...it takes a ridiculous amount of time to make RO server. One of the guys spent an entire week, maybe about 30 hours in that week, editing item descriptions just so they could be the old style instead of post-2010 style. Money can only pay so much. At a point you need ideas.

if you got money he is the best out there. Skills wise

fare warning google his name, check the forums and read a little bit people skilled like that come whit extra problems, but if you want to trow a new server up, and compete you need someone on his skill level

That post is a sarcasm, he is a GM in our GM hall of shame.  It is another warning for you that you should be able to handle everything alone in the worst case scenario so that nobody can control the life of your server.  You cannot always hire anybody to do the job for you.

Is not really sarcam I think the last server that dude ran was the Hotshotgg Ragnarok's server "ggRo"

the dude scams all the people and their mothers, screw servers database, and have all kinds of drama going on but skill wise, and being able get people hype for a server he is pretty much one of the few that could do it

Let me see I am only talking skills, the know how and being able to make a 500 player server over and over that list is super short lol

rAthena or Hercules core who would you suggest from that list that have runned 500+ servers that could make it, got the skills and the know how? and have a good reputacion (if you have a suggestion go for it share it)

Good and bad reputation all depends who you ask I guess as long as you dont try to hide it It should be ok
