I'm a software engineer looking for some ideas on how I can contribute to the Game Server Hosting community. I have a few ideas already, but am interested in finding some more. Here's what I've got so far:

- Pterodactyl Panel Stripe Integration
- Pterodactyl panel cloud server provider Integration for auto-provisioning of nodes

The ideas above are based on Pterodactyl Panel, mainly as I think the software is pretty freaking neat and could be gaining in popularity. I've also noticed there is a lack of billing integrations for it.

Are there any other ideas or needs that could be worthwile?


I think Pterodactyl should remain different from billing/client services. WHMCS isn't alone when it comes to integration there are other big ones out there like HostBill.
I think it would be an interesting use case to have Stripe in Pterodactyl without the accompanied client features such as ticketing, support, ordering, etc.

I think auto-provisioning nodes could be really cool.
They already have to set up to be relatively basic with almost a single command, but rather if you made it where you entered an SSH Key or username/pass with an IP and it completed installed and configured everything for that node I think that would be a really cool idea.

When considering the game web server software, you should definitely consider what game you want to play and what type of operating system (OS) can be used to run the game. You will of course need at least one copy of the game itself, and depending on the nature of the game, you may need multiple copies.
Since some games may only be available to run on a specific OS, you should be sure to choose the software that will be able to run the game. You can also use the game web server software, which will allow you to monitor and install security protocols for your server.

Game server software usually refers to programs running on a game web server. A game server is a piece of hardware, often a dedicated computer system that acts as a host server for personal computer games to which other players connect as clients. One of the first pieces of game server software that you should consider is the game you want to run on web server.
Depending on which computer game you want to run, you may need to purchase multiple copies of the game, or you can use the free version of the game to run as a host for other customers using retail copies of the game.

You should also be sure to consider the OS you want to run on your web  server when planning your game server software. Many games are developed only to run on a specific OS; while you can run an emulator to use a game with another OS, that can negatively affect the performance of the game.
When choosing software for game web servers, you should usually look for an OS that can run as many different games as possible, especially those that you are interested in playing.

It may also be useful to consider secondary game server software that you can use to manage your web server. Since you may not be able to physically access your server, especially if it is hosted on a separate facility, then you should make sure that you have software that will give you remote access.
That software can be used to monitor the system settings of your web server and ensure its proper operation. You should also consider the game server software that you can use to secure your server; these can be firewalls and antivirus programs, as well as security utilities that allow you to set access controls such as passwords and manage additional security features.
