I'm developing some software and I am trying to see if it is possible to run this software on a dedicated server. It's basically an executable (or Windows service) that I want running 24/7. I need it to receive SMS and, I believe, the only way to do that would be to attach a GSM modem to the server itself and insert a sim card into there. I want to know if anyone will even allow me to add hardware like this to a box and if a dedicated server is the only option I have (it seems a bit pricey, but HostGator said that is the route I would need to go for what I need). Thanks in advance.
