Infrastructure Upgrade

  We are always working to improve our systems and have begun the process of moving our Dallas nodes to a new data center.  This new data center will provide us access to a faster network and stronger DDoS protection. We have already upgraded Chicago and Los Angeles. We are also taking this opportunity to upgrade all our nodes to the latest hardware.  All these upgrades are free to all customers.   New Hardware Our new data-center locations will be receiving custom machines with the E5-1650v4 Intel CPU, 64GB RAM, SSD drives and premium bandwidth. These newer chips are faster and coupled with SSD drives will deliver the performance and reliability that we feel every single one of our customers deserve!   20GB DDoS Protection The even bigger and most important upgrade is that our entire Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles locations, after the migration, will be protected with 20gbps of traffic protection and 60 million packets per second protection! This is a milestone for us as a company and an awesome benefit for our customers to enjoy. These same DDoS protection benefits will be coming to every one of our other locations in the future as well.   What To Expect When we are ready to migrate your service(s) you will receive a direct email from our team stating that your service is now being moved. At that point in time your dashboard access will be suspended and your service will be gracefully stopped. All of your current server data will be packaged up and transferred to the new machine your service will reside on. Everyone will receive a new IP address and possibly a new Port (if necessary to avoid conflict issues) on the new upgraded hardware. We recommend [...]

Pricing Dropped for Empyrion Galactic Survival

Pricing is now $1.50/slot (down from $2.00/slot) for all packages 16-50 slots both monthly and quarterly terms. We will continue to monitor the game as it progresses and pricing is always subject to change throughout development, including increases in price if necessary.

Planet Explorers Updates to 0.9 – 1 Year Later

The developers are alive! Here is an excerpt from their steam announcement about Planet Explorers 0.9 as well as the change list: Happy Holidays everyone. Here's the a0.9 build. It's about a year late, and we are truly sorry for that, but sometimes, a major rewrite is needed (in retrospect, it's up for debate). For players updating from a0.87, this is pretty much a new game. Everything has been changed over the last year. This build is a bit rushed, so we expect there to be bugs. We'll straighten these out over the next two weeks. From now on, we'll be updating directly to the release build instead of the beta. We will be releasing a new demo based on the a0.9 build within the next two weeks as well. A0.9 Changelist Fixed turrets not firing at enemies sometimes Fixed turrets not firing when not hit by an enemy Fixed jetpack animation Fixed NPCs not returning after chasing an enemy Fixed grenade projectile motion Fixed giant robot enemy weapons projectile motion Fixed ISOs disappearing after entering model scene Fixed Paja creation error in the desert Fixed world map not displaying anything in Adventure Mode Fixed turrets filling up durability after being picked up Fixed multiple colony UI bugs Fixed herbs adding full HP Fixed NPC spawning twice in camp Fixed repair machines not using resources Fixed kicking out NPC from colony and having the NPC disappear Fixed issue where some scripts can't be learned Fixed issue of being able to pick up the ladder while on it Fixed problems with bird projectiles Fixed issue with NPCs not stopping for conversation in Adventure Mode Fixed fertilizer gun projectile Fixed issue with andhera not being scared of [...]

ARK Survival Evolved Delay and Out of Stock Locations

First of all, we want to thank everyone that has already ordered their ARK:  Survival Evolved dedicated server from us. Secondly, we want to express our deepest apologies for the incredible amount of time it is taking for your services to come online. We have had people waiting days for their servers now and we understand how frustrating this can be. Trust us when we say we are just as, if not more, frustrated than you guys are. There was absolutely no way that anybody could have expected the sheer volume of hype and popularity for ARK:  Survival Evolved hosting, even more just the game itself. We want everyone to know that we are working nonstop to get our systems caught up and back to normal. We were not ready for the amount of demand for ARK Survival Evolved and it has slowed down our entire operation. Here are some answers to the most common questions we have been getting via emails and our social pages:   1)  When will my order be completed and my server come online and/or when will you respond to my support ticket? We are incredibly backed up right now and therefore we cannot give any specific answers and/or ETA for your server setup time. Our support ticket system is also majorly backed up and we are trying to catch that up as well. If we are slow to respond please understand that we are focused on getting customer orders completed and servers online as our main priority right now. 2)  Your ARK: Survival Evolved Server Hosting product page says OUT OF STOCK, why? We are currently out of capacity in almost all of our data-center locations because of the [...]
