You need to have a VPS with sufficient RAM, You can either get a vps from a ragnarok hosting (not suggestable because the price is very high/incomplete access)
or get a cheap VPS from trusted VPS providers (OVH,Digital Ocean,Vultr) and learn how to install rA in the VPS. there are several guides in the wiki and forum.

There are also 3rd party services for VPS Installation/Server Setup

Welcome to the linux OS.. xD. Mostly vps are running on linux OS. But i think there is one vps, offering windows OS.

I'm pretty sure u done the customization in the test server on ur desktop / laptop which running on windows OS.

https://www.vps.ag/windows

But the price of windows OS vps are higher compare to linux OS vps. Ovh basic vps plan just 3.5 USD per month. For long term. U can save a lot. But, it just u need to learn how to running server on linux OS. Once u get use of it. I think it should not be a problem anymore.

Yeah XD, I've been customizing on my windows laptop. I tried searching at ovh and their Linux plan is $2.35 per month while for windows is $10 per month. Well... in your point of view is it hard to move from windows to linux? I've been using windows ever since /heh Have never used any other OS except for iOS lol. Thank you

nothing is easy for the first time. :P

u just a lot of patience & determination..

i think the basic plan can support up to 100 players. it should be no problem i think. but, in case the vps no longer can support, u can just upgrade the vps at anytime.

there are few linux OS distro (distribution). Ubuntu, Debian, Centos. but i highly recommend Ubuntu (ubuntu is sub-distro of debian) as rA seems to be move it support to modern software (yaml, c++, g++). sticking with centos, u end up mess up your mood & spirit on learning Linux OS.

https://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads

please download ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Long Term Support, 5 years support updates & maintenance) instead of ubuntu 17.04 (only 9 months support updates & maintenance)

for beginner, u can download ubuntu 16.04.2 Desktop version. it has GUI and u can still practive using terminal too (command prompt).

and once again i would remind. just use ubuntu or debian.. please avoid CentOS.. although most of the guide in this forum u can see it will emphasize on centos, but u will get lots of headache if running on CentOS (as lots of incompatibility issue due to outdated software / program in this Linux distro)

erm.. all linux distro has GUI (Desktop version) & non GUI (Server version). but if u gonna rent a vps, it will always be ubuntu server or centos server..

it is just rarely for the vps to put desktop version for linux.

to compile it? by using terminal. just execute ./configure && make clean server

So most likely is you rent a linux they give you just a server?

yeah.. i don't there is problem with that. and i prefer using server edition.. it is much light weight & consume less ram & cpu resources... even if u using desktop edition, u will still go through the terminal (command prompt) -> this is just like u are using on server edition.

windows even require & consume lot more RAM.. u can just use 1GB of ram on linux server vps. but, i don't think u can on windows server vps.. still the reason why linux server is better option coz due to less ram & cpu consumption over linux desktop & windows server.
