Game Servers Provider
In term of censorship, which will be the Servers Provider for the game (Google servers, Amazon servers, your own servers).
- Google Servers are blocked in Mainland China and many other countries.
- Amazon Servers are blocked in Mainland China and many other countries.
So if any game uses at any point one of this, it won´t be accessible in Mainland China and countries with similar censorship laws.
Thanks for that! I only started thinking about that side of things as you moved to China!
We currently use Microsoft Azure, but none of the 'cloud' services provide cheap enough hosting per hour per GB of ram. Later, we intend to use dedicated bare-metal hosting. One of the first providers will be ovh.com -- since they focus on core hosting, I think we'll be fine. :-)
