Who are you hosting with?

I've only seen one of the big name hosting websites with FF already on their order webpage (Nuclearfallout, which is ludicrously expensive, albeit good.)

Anyone have a good eastern U.S. hosting place for 22 slots for around $60 a month?

I'm sure many people are itching to get more servers up, so it'd be a good idea to discuss some of the hosting options.

At that price, you're probably going to have to rent your own box. Of course, for a full 32 player server, I imagine things would get pretty resource heavy (I recently had fun choking my 2GHz system to death with a 16-bot CSS server -- obviously the bots jack up CPU a lot, but it goes to show). Layered tech has pretty good deals with AMD systems at 2800+/3000+ range.

Speaking of which, if you don't care about latency (routing over cogent/verio for 60-100ms+ pings in the US -- san jose, california), you can cram as many slots as possible on my box for a flat rate of $25/mo (yes, you'll basically get a shell to manage srcds from). The box isn't used for much other than web hosting and has a whopping 300mb system RAM left!

I play a lot of CSS and NFo has really shitty reg, I refuse to play cal/cevo matches on NFo servers

the best sites for servers are probably HiDef, they have really nice ones, and the best is insomnia365, they are amazing.

I never had any problems with them, they always responded within 15 minutes for me.

Got a canned response from support, but I replied back, trying to force him to actually look into it.

Did you expect anything else LOL

Goto killerpings.com and hit them up. I had a DoD:S server with them. They need a bit of a push.

I rent a dedicated box from artofwarcentral.com and love them. I know they are willing to add any game to their hosting roster if you request it.

I work at an ISP so I get to leech their bandwidth for free. Servers for the masses!

Ok, I gave clanservers the links to the server packages, and they say they can install it now, so I thought I'd give ya'll the heads up.

BTW, my clanservers servers have been great...very low pings and very stable, but I don't care for canned support messages and the way their support team acts in general. Sometimes they are great, then they will turn around and smart off like you are an idiot. Overall, I am happy with them though.

I was there tonight, they don't seem like responding to questions on the forums for pre-sales.

Lookin into getting one myself. If anyone wants to split the cost of a 22 or so player server, let me know. Msn/email at mullen1200@hotmail.com. I use a mic, so that'd work too.

I went with gameservers.com...$32 a month for 22 players. I used them once before, and they were reliable.

However, I don't think I'm dealing with the best tech support guy at the moment, as he's telling me I have to upload the FF files by FTP myself.

Another tech support guy, who apparently isn't working right now, was doing it for people. Uploading 1 gig with thousands of files at 60k a second isn't fun. I'm kinda pissed about that, since another tech guy told me in e-mail they'd do it for me.
