    hi.
    i've been looking for a good gmod server host, to host a 16 slot buildserver.
    i've been looking at "Xenonservers" and "Lowpings".
    would you recommand any of these hosts, or someone else?
    i live in Europe btw.

    thanks

    sorry for my bad english, it isnt my first language.

    Hmmm, for build I dunno. If you're not tight on cash I'd look at a dedicated CPU VPS.

    You can get them for $20-30 a month and offer you so much more flexibility with hosting. Either way, just don't go with Xenonservers ;).

    When they first started out it was like five bucks for a ten slot, wonder why it's different now.

    Not sure how they work out that...

    Erm... no, ideal hosting own that and they just try and charge you for everything, their gmod community charges you for everything. They changed garrys title to try and make it look like it was garry who owned it. Just stay away from them.

    Feel free to check our Garry's Mod servers out. Unfortunately we currently only have stock in New York. If you want to try some servers we host or if you have any questions feel free to send me a PM.

    We will have stock in Germany within the next couple of weeks, if you can't wait until then I'd recommend http://nitrous-networks.co.uk.

    Nitrous-Networks or Jargen are the best servers providers you can get for Garry's Mod.

    Jargen is a massive dick. I would not trust him with server hosting or my money. From that thread, it seems like he just wants hard $ and not the quality of his server hosting.
    If any, I'd say NFOservers. Only heard good stuff from there.

    I was going to do that until I spoke with there staff, there VPS (VDS) are much better suited towards gmod.

    They cannot be as strict or efficient with there abuse ACL's on the dedicated boxes. Where as the VDS is cheaper and faster. I've 12 cores (4xe1230 and 8x5690) for $259 from them, with there abuse ACL protection.

    Personally I wouldn't trust a host that's breaking European laws and all hosting standards by almost taking a shit on their customers.

    Also he's lurking this thread, I'm just waiting for an argument here.

    Well obviously I haven't met him, we're on an internet forum and the guy is from another country than I am. From what he has said in that thread, I believe most of us would not trust him. Saying he's trustable because "you clearly haven't met him" won't work here, I don't expect to meet people from other countries I've met on an internet site to randomly pop up at the supermarket.

    what laws?
    There's certain laws regarding sales of online hosting and distribution, for example that all hardware breakdown would legally have to be replaced by the company that's renting out the machine.
    Jargen can not be held responsible for any issues with your server, including and not limited to: Damages caused by Jargen Staff, Hardware issues, External Attacks to your server. If you have any issues raise a support ticket and we will do our best to fix it.
    No matter what their Terms of Service says, they're fully responsible for any hardware issues and even (I think) certain damage applied to files hosted by their service.

    Also, Jargen's ToS is basically saying that if anything "they" don't like happens, they'll cancel your service under any reason given, which almost any host has in their ToS (rightfully so) but the way it's explained is ridicoulus, and ends up formulated as "Don't try shit" rather than "Use our service in a respectfull manner", which is honestly a dick move however I'm not sure if there's any laws about it.

    There's some reasons however that they can not cancel your service as a reason for, for example certain cases regarding resource usages.
    If you've purchased a "16-Slot Garry's Mod server", a list of reserved resources are required accessable for the client for him to know if he's breaking said limit or not, otherwise it's just a human factor whether his service lives or dies, and again it's a dick move however I'm not sure if there's any laws about it.

    Regarding the "No refunds" fad that's been going on around Garry's Mod server hosters, if you've made a service agreement with a client regarding the purchase of a service (The game server), the client can choose to cancel the order at any given point untill it's been used (Gone online)

    To be honest, looking at the overall service I'm surprised to say that it's actually WHMCS verified.

    Hardware - Well, yea. They have to replace broken hardware themselves if it's rented, kinda obvious. They do NOT however have to cover for short downtimes etc, depends what SLA they offer.

    As for data loss there are NO covers required - and I don't know of ANY host would pay for damages to your files, that's just stupid. It's up to the client to purchase or maintain adequate backup systems unless otherwise advertised.

    I don't think WHMCS really verify things? There just a payment system really. The only real law you where right on is the hardware one.

    If you have an extra PC, and good internet ( I hear its pretty fast in Europe compared to America ) I recommend hosting it yourself. It works great for me.

    I use RedSpeedServers.com and they provide such reasonable prices with DDoS protection. They've been having some down time with there datacenter, so they switched over to Dallas, TX and provided free DDoS protection.

    As for getting a maybe like a Dedicated such, I recommend getting nfoservers.com VPS 2 core. Its the best one to have to hold some number of servers. I hosted 2 PERP servers, 1 DarkRP, and 1 Build servers with no lag at all. Of a course the servers wernt fully packed.

    Personally, I didn't have a very good experience with Xenonservers.
    My community was running a Custom TTT server and Fretta, both with a custom store, and on Xenonservers there was a pretty good amount of lag. But now we use xfactorservers, which doesn't necessarily specialize in GMod servers as much as Xenonservers, but they do have better pings and they have some good coupons that will get you off 20% off each month.

    I hate xenonservers, there nothing but bad hosting now.

    They say they provide FastDL - I don't see any FastDL on my server. I even ask.

    They also have like almost everyday of downtime with there servers and control panel.

    Support - I get shit support everytime I ask for something wrong with my server.

    They also have strict access from uploading .dll files (not saying its bad but eh)

    pretty sure Xenon includes FastDL as well as a base server.cfg with FastDL automatically enabled.

    I never had any downtime with them, just relatively bad ping for what I was running on my server. That was over a year ago though.

    The DLL restrictions are so someone doesn't upload something nasty and fuck the server up, yes, damn them for protecting their clients

    I've been using Xenon Servers to host my gmod server for the past year and a half.

    It's was moderate at the beginning, now it's pretty awesome.

    Xenon Servers provides FastDL automatically, no need to worry about setting up a website and
    updating every time you update the server.

    They provide free DDoS protection for your server as well.

    My server hardly ever lags but once in a full moon it will, and I just send in a ticket and they fix it within a hour. The staff are very friendly.

    Overall: It's been awesome. Great when using Filezilla to manage your files as well.
    Oh, and they have a list of mods and plugins that they will automatically install for your server
    (ULX, Evolve, ASSMOD, etc) in just a matter of seconds.

    I'd recommend Xenon, don't know why everyone else has such a bad reputation with them.
