I Only Tryed DayZ.st they was awesome although you couldn't spawn Vehicles and couldn't edit loadouts but easy to use and cheap
Can someone tell me whats The BEST Server Host for Epoch?
1.Map (Spawn Vehicles Edit loadout)
2.Good Updates (Atleast 2 to 3 days after update release they update)
3.Easy to use
4.Scripts (Not really needed I can do my own scripts just good to be lazy Lol if they can do the scripts for you.Add them to your server.Also some type of admin control like spawning vehicles and teleporting.
Budget is 40 Usd for a 50 slot
I'm currently looking at hosts and ServivalServers caught my eye until I got on their site and noticed that live chat is rarely online. They also advertise this $25 monthly thing for the life of your server but then when you go to add to cart you have to pay an additional $3/mo to debrand the server, then if you want them to manage the server with restarts and installing stuff that's an additional $8.50/mo so then it comes to $41.50/mo and if you use the save5 code you get $5 off for good, so it brings it down to $36.50/mo. That's a joke.
The server I play on runs dayz.st and while they have got ddossed once since I've been playing(a week today). They haven't had problems in nearly 5-6 days. They're not bad priced at all either and I hear that the tech support is good. I may add that I'm going to have another person setup the server unless they will do it for me if I buy the server. I'm going to be getting all the config files from a friend. One thing I will test first is their response time to e-mails.
Dayzpriv I was curious about but one thing I can honestly say I don't like is that I e-mailed them at 4 something a.m.(Central Time) and I did not get a reply back until right at 2 hours later. While I might add that Oregon is 2 hours behind me, 4pm is still 2pm, and that's still quite slow to respond to a couple of simple questions. What I'll probably do is send another email or two with questions and see how they respond because it may of just been a busy day. Though if it's the same then I'll avoid them. I like having live support personally because you don't have to wait. One awesome thing is that you can try their service for three days for free and if you don't like them you can drop them without hassle, so that's a great seller.
HFB I've read so many bad things about and honestly not a single good thing. I hear their tech support doesn't know anything and that if you have issues with the server that it's an act of congress to get a refund because of their "billing cycle" bull they say. So to me I would just end up having to fight it through paypal and if that didn't work I would just dispute the claim on my credit card. So that makes me avoid them all together.
I wouldn't bother with vilayer because their prices are in Euros and that's more than the dollar so it would end up being the most expensive option for me.
Then I seen somebody say verthosting. I'm curious to email them once I figure out the time zone difference to see how long it takes them to get back to me. To me it's all about customer service and quick to respond and quick to resolve issues. While I can get somebody to do most of the work for me I want to know that if I need help that somebody will be there. Also, just to add they have some awesome scripts from the look on their site with the triple anti hack thing or w/e it's called.
So as of now these are the way I rate the hostings you've mentioned:
1.) Dayz.st (Has nice free features)
2.) Verthosting (Strictly basing this off their features and reviews)
3.) Dayzpriv (Could be #2 but I've had the 12 hour delayed email response, and it almost took the #2 spot because of the free 3 day trial)
4.) Vilayer (Has good reviews, but I don't deal with Euros)
5-9.) I'm sure they are other hosts out there that are much better than SS, so they take the 5-9 spots.
10.) ServivalServers (Cheap until you add the options like server restarting($$) which is included in places like dayz.st for free, and then the $3/mo debrand is another rip off. It's just a way to make more money but appear cheaper at first. So honestly, I'd simply label them as a scam because places that try to be shady like this and sell features that other hostings include for free should get a life)
Like this is how pathetic I think SS are. If they were to do $10/mo forever I wouldn't even buy it. That's even if the other places went up to $50/mo. I live by a simple saying in life that when I blacklist a company it stays there. Also SS reminds me of multiplaygameservers with that ignorant branding stuff, because if a company has to sit there and charge you to debrand a server to get additional money because it can't get money without having to brand their servers then that alone speaks for their service or rather lack of.
