The main differentiating aspect between a normal server and a dedicated server is that the dedicated servers are devoted to performing only one task, especially when it comes to hosting game servers like Gmod dedicated server, while others are not. Steam is a DRM, content delivery, and multi-player system. These steps aren't too complicated for those who've dealt with gaming servers, and they will easily be able to do it.

It is better if we don't run our server as root, but rather we run it as a normal user, just so that there is less chances of a security breach. After hlds has updated you need to decide what game you want to install. For this how to I will just be installing a normal Half-Life server, but you are free to install a cstrike or czero etc This will tell hlds to get all the files required for a normal Half-Life server. If you want to have a counterstrike server, all you need to do is change the -game valve to -game cstrike Or if you want condition zero: -game czero I don't know the commands for any other games, but they should be fairly easy to find using google. Getting the game files may take some time , but after hlds has downloaded them, you'll be back at the prompt.
