the record for my site was 20 visitors in one day, the average is 2.4 .
Struggling to handle only 20 visitors or less to a site suggests the host you were using wasn't very good.
What game are you exactly wanting to run on a server?
How many people are you expecting to be playing this game?
Is this a game server that you want to have up 24/7 or just when particular friends can play?
Any other details you think might be important?
Normally running a game server is a more dedicated task, so it is handled by companies that largely handle game server hosting or related activites. You could try searching around on the web; however, I suspect that you're unlikely to find for $7 or less a year. Unless you host it yourself from somewhere off a machine of your own. For example, my friends and I run a variety of game servers for Halo, Minecraft, Call of Duty, and a few other games that run pretty much 24/7 from a variety of locations that we as a group of ~20 people go on for our own private use. Some we run out of people's homes and some we leave running at offices of businesses that are owned by some of our group.
