I was wondering for a while how I could host a game server for a personnal project, knowing that I cannot host it at home because my machine is in a private network and it would be too cumbersome to deal with NAT and dynamic IP address issues...
I learned about Google App engine and Amazon EC2 but I don't really know if one can simply rent one of their server, get a static public IP address and then host its application? Suppose my server-side application is a simple exe file, can I get one of their server running on Windows and run my app from here? (I doubt it works like this ^^)
Thanks for answering.
Have a good day
(PS : I am not sure if this is the right place)
