I am interested in setting up a Java game server for a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG).

Does anyone know of or could recommend a UK Web Hosting company that offers:
- Game server hosting for MMOG's?
- Co-location or shared/dedicated servers onto which Java software could be installed?
- Support for MySQL/SQL Server databases?
- Fail over (and recovery) of servers?
- Regular backups of data?

On colocated servers you can install anything you like, as it's your hardware. And it's generally much cheaper than dedicated servers (at the cost of buying your own server).

On a side-note:
Start small, like building a T (tiny) MOG and see if that works out.

I agree. start small, run a your server on a spare computer you have around the house. when you work tbe amazingly complex kinks out of your MMOG and you start supporting hundreds of users, move to an actual server.

Decent co-lo space is notoriously expensive. Its just that you have control over the hardware and can do things like upgrade the memory, CPU, etc for the mere cost of the hardware, instead of paying 10 times its value (the markup on upgrades for hosted hardware is usually immense).

Why would you want control? Well, as a friend put it, "I can buy $10,000 servers and know I've got battery-backed RAID5 that will NOT lose data even with a write-back cache, instead of the cheap-ass RAID5 cards hosted servers come with".

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...
