What it takes to build a server?

    Hey, guys, I've been playing Garry's Mod for a while and most of the servers don't meet my requirements. So I thought it's a good idea to start my own server. I can bring more value and fun to the server and attract more people.
    But the problem is I don't have any programming skills. So my question is now, what it takes to make a server? I want to hire a developer to help me out. Right now I'm trying to figure out possible expenses.
    • What is average working hour price for a developer?
    • How long does it take to build a server? (on average)
    • What are average expenses on the addons?
    • Will my VIP upgrades cover my monthly expenses?
    • Is there any other way you can make money except vip upgrades?
    • And is it worth?
    I've got only this questions for now until you answer.
    Thanks to anyone who answers :)

    1) About £20 a hour.
    2) My average was about 3 weeks, however i have school and what not so it might be a bit shorter for you.
    3) I'm not sure since i don't buy addons, i usually either make my own or use ones of the workshop.
    4) Depends how many people buy VIP and how much it costs.
    5) Not really unless you do something that's like Trails, or Admin Perms, ect.
    6) Again, depends on how many people join and how many people buy stuff ect.
