    There's plenty of private game servers for almost any game from runescape to world of warcraft to club penguin. Where can i learn to make a professional private game server?

    The internet has plenty of tutorials. Depends on what game though. Some are really easy, with programs that do much the work for you, other games though require a bit more patience.

    Depends on your definition of professional.

    A lot of larger scale hosting services automate provisioning/installation/configuration items. If you just want to roll a single server there's usually a server executable you can obtain and launch.

    I see tutorials on making small ones for like you and a few friends but i want to make a big private server with its own website and many players from all over, that's what i meant by professional.

    How much capital do you have to sink into this?

    Money really shouldn't be much of a problem. I have the money just need to know where to start to create this.

    Just search for game server hosts in Google. But don't use Gamservers.com I had a horrible experience with them and reported them to the Better Business Bureau.

    The best thing you can do to learn how to host games is to dive in and just start with one you like. I enjoyed running one on a spare computer while I was in college and learned a lot about computers in the process. All games handle differently than each other, even ones that share the same engine. Mods/add-ons/etc. throw in another X factor.

    Because all games are so different, you probably won't find a single site that acts as a tutorial for all of them. Especially not for something like WoW, which I think is technically not authorized to run privately.
