    Hi there, I am going to rent a Garry's Mod server. And I have stumbled upon these:
    http://www.inx-gaming.com/game-servers/garrys-mod/
    http://nitrous-networks.co.uk/
    http://gmodservers.com/
    http://www.gtxgaming.co.uk/game-serv.../garrys-mod-10

    So basically my question is do any of you have experience with these services? Which one should I go for? I am going for a 16-man server with some addons, and I am looking for a stable one with good support.

    Thanks.

    Best is to run it yourself

    but that's just my opinion... free, and unless you have bad internet, you can't really fuck it up terribly.

    I have for a long time now, got great hardware and internet connection, runs fine! But I want to rent one to have it up 24/7, as I am not able to do that at home.

    Should have mentioned that, Europe would be suitable since I live in Europe, and majority of my players are from Europe as well.

    I once had a server on INX-gaming.

    +Great support
    +Low pings
    +Free webspace (10 GB space, 100 GB bandwith, On request)
    +Very stable servers

    -No automatic FastDownload
    -Uploading files through control panel sucks (But who doesen't use FTP programs like FileZilla? xD)

    I use NFOServers.

    -Choose a variety of US hosting locations
    -Great support (5 min or less wait after ticket)
    -Nice control panel
    -Free Webshosting Plan
    -Doesn't take long for server to be created
    -Automatic updating, websyncing, and easy to wipe
    -Autoinstallers for gamemodes/plugins, such as ULX, ULib, DarkRP, etc.
    -Easy to set gmod-specific options, and to edit the config files via the control panel
    -low ping, great uptime, and a good bang for the buck.

    I had a server with them and I loved the support, but I changed to http://daemonservers.co.uk/ because this one offers more slots for the same price, and a button that syncronizes your FastDL files, I'm very happy with them.

    Never use GTXGaming.

    Friends don't let friends use GTXGaming.

    They have the worst, most rude support and their servers are a load of bullshit.

    Make sure to also check out www.cobrahosting.org

    But I'd also recommend either Elpis or NFO.

    I haven't been DDoS'd on Garry's Mod, and I don't necessarily want to.

    The server I had on Nitrous Networks were down 5-15 days/month, we started out with a nice warning: my server use 80% CPU on sandbox (3-7 people, Evolve+wiremod .. that's it).
    Cause all the downtime, I had no idea when the next pay-date was set, so I was dependent on their Email system.

    Email-system failed, I got no warning (Got 2 crew-members as steamfriends) and first after 4-5 days they told me, my server got whipped 1 day ago.

    The only problem I had on Elpis was a bug that got fixed within a hour.

    You guys should check out Cobra Hosting, This will be my second month using them and they're awesome. Better than NFO and Vilayer, but come on, what server company can't beat vilayer..
    Seriously though, www.cobrahosting.org
