If you submit a preorder, you make a payment in advance to secure a BF4 server at a special pre-order price that will be locked in for as long as the same server is kept in the same configuration. We will reserve you a spot in our system and create the server by the game's release on October 29, 2013, or a little earlier (if EA/DICE allows us to) -- this is when the paid time starts.
You should not need to order your BF4 server in advance using a preorder, but it is likely that we will raise our price after the release of the game, so doing this may allow you to save some money.
If you have a managed VDS or managed dedicated server, you can create your own BF4 servers after the release of the game, after purchasing slots for BF4. Battlefield 4 slots come from a different pool than the BF3/MoHW ones, and have a different price. Please note that we do not support more than 48-slot servers on managed VDSes.
We talk more about preorders work in another KB article.
