    Making Profit by running a server

    Possible?

    I'd like to host a Gmod or DayZ Origins server, do you think you could make a profit out of it?

    ​If you attract enough players, then yes it's possible to profit.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Done a million of times, if you get lucky and have a good community to support you via donations you can make some cash. It's all about work and luck. I wouldn't go in there to try to make a profit because chances are you won't.

    Well i guess theres always that depending on how desperate you are for money, i was talking about the things they always suggest on HF though like referal sites or running a server or uploading hacks to paid file sharing sites etc. Those all promise hundreds of dollars but in reality you make like 4 dollars an hour unless you get really lucky

    You can make lots of money doing this if you also have a side community and you need multiple servers for different genres.
