    Well, what exactly are you looking to do? Host a couple of games on your own, rent out game servers to people, rent out servers and webspace, give out servers and webspace?

    Most games provide a Linux binary that you can place on your server, while some others you have to compile from source (not often you'll have ones that need compiling).

    Also, which games are you looking to do?

    Put this on your server and extract the contents of the files. Generally, games go into the /opt partition, so you may want to place it there. Up to you though.

    After you've unzipped it, you'll have to get a key for your server. That should be available here according to their website.

    To run the game, go into the "Systems" directory and on a Linux/x86 server, you want to use the "ucc-bin" executable to start the server. I don't know the exact syntax to use that program to start up a server, but that should be a good start for you.

    If you want to run multiple servers, doing something like:

    /opt/server1/[...]
    /opt/server2/[...]
    /opt/server3/[...]
    etc

    should work, and then you can start up each server separately from the others so they can be different types of games with different configs and everything.
