Server Host

  1. No clue if this is the right forum to post in if it isn't please move it to the correct one so anyway.

    I want to know a cheap host that offers ddos protection and ram that can go up to 8gb. I'm not looking for a dedicated server as I have no clue about setting them up. And you guys will probably moan at me about shared hosting (Go ahead) so anyway what host would you recommend.
     
  2. hmm, I can maybe help you get a dedi up
     
  3. NetherByte can offer you that pretty well, check my sig for a link.

    Most of us here will recommend a Dedi for you, as they truly are better for most people.
    If you do ever choose to go with a dedi, go with ReliableSite, OVH or SecuredServers.
     
  4. Would netherbyte have a customizable player limit because with 4096 mb you could probably get around 80-100 players instead of 48?
     
  5. That would be helpful but not at the current moment in time. Because I'm currently just making plans for now I have no intrest in starting now until I hear the offical 1.8 Eula statement and seeing what plugins break xD :p
     
  6. Yep, we have one client currently running 150 players on a similar plan
     
  7. Signature of the year.

  9. I know that the cheap the better, but you could for example get a dedicated server in ReliableSite or Server4You, Hetzner etc.

    And use a good ddos protection somewhere else, one that never got down is the one I currently use for my server :
    http://www.hyperfilter.com/micro-protection/

    You can try BlackLotus or Staminus too, but in past I didn't really had a so good experience, OVH (no please hehe, but if you don't have any other option, then whatever...).

    Just keep in mind that the words 'Cheap' and 'Good' doesn't often walk/meet together :)
     
  10. Sorry but you must be retarded to think that hyper filter has better ddos protection then OVH

  11. Why don't you try to put it down then ? :)
     
  12. Because people have lives and would not bother spending money to taking something down. We already know that OVH > Hyperfilter. Why bother?

  14. You just believe that a company that provides 120 Gbps for 'all their customers' can handle more attack traffic than a company that is built 'specifically' for this ? You must be really innocent :) But maybe with time you'll learn the differences :D

    No way OVH is better in capacity than BlackLotus, Prolexic, HyperFilter or Staminus, except that some of these companies might have specific issues with game servers, however I didn't found any with my service provider at all, while with OVH I got all sorts of problems even using their "AntiDDoS PRO".

    And when mailing them to get help and a fix for my issues, the replies generally took 3~5 days to arrive, with only attempts and excuses :)

    So yeah, use them as much you want, better for me lol.
     
  15. You have no clue what you are talking about .-. Hyperfilter is a sketchy company with 0 reputation not sure if you are promoting them for some reason but no-one will agree with you here and we are all knowledgable server owners (not in your case) who can agree with me.

  16. You have your own opinion and it is respectable, however I bet you didn't even tried the services before judging it at all.
     
  17. >"Try to find something recent"
    >Bashes OVH's old, now replaced, DDoS protection system.
     
  18. No bashing, just an opinion :)
