I would just like to say a massive thank you to Nodecraft for all of their hard work they have spent to bring me one of the best Minecraft experiences i have ever had. I am not new to the minecraft scene by any chance; i have been running servers for a long time and have been with around 3 previous hosts. None of them could provide the servers i needed and with the amount of access and support i may require. Since starting out with just a small server on nodecraft this has grown into two large minecraft servers and two websites, what can i say apart from im sure ill be adding more in the future.
TacticalLion and his pride says Thank You Nodecraft.
I have to say NodeCraft is one of the best server hosts out there. I have many firends that are using other server hosts and they pay more for less. The staff team is almost always there to help you out with a problem even at 2am and its rare that a support ticket goes unanswered for more than 5 minutes. I started with NodeCraft knowing next to nothing about Servers and plugins and how to config them. The level of customer service with NodeCraft is bar none the best out there and not to mention the best servers for great prices. They have never disappointed me and I don't think they ever will.
Seriously. They are. The servers are rock-solid, and the live support chat means any problem I've had, they've solved almost immediately. The tech guys on hand are REALLY knowledgeable too, and actually seem invested in helping and keeping everything running as smooth as possible. This is a company that actually, legitimately puts the customer first and personally invests themselves into each and every customer's needs, wants, and concerns, which is something that I've rarely seen in hosting companies.
Their prices are amazing, too. Their cheapest server package is only $3/mo, and that nets you 256MB RAM and 8 slots. The server that Kath and I got from them is the $5 tier - 512MB RAM, 15 slots, and MySQL.
Yes, 512MB RAM for $5/mo, with the most AMAZING tech support I've EVER seen, may I add.
I mean, even if these guys weren't priced as cutthroat competitively as they were, I'd still recommend them on their tech support alone. They're just THAT good.
But, ah, I'm kind of rambling now. So, I'm just going to say this.
If you're considering getting a Minecraft server, and you want to get the best, for the best price...
How's your DoS attack policy work? On our current host null routed our IP for 48 hours after a DDoS attack on our server. I think PytoHost goes so far as completely terminating your server sans refund(ToS) if you get attacked while other hosts have proactive monitoring, or a shared mitigation services.
That's a great question to ask and it's becoming increasingly important in the gaming industry. Our Phoenix servers have a basic layer of DDoS protection in the form of hardware firewalls which work to mitigate the network attack, however, if the DDoS attack becomes too much for the server to handle then the last layer of protection will issue a null route to your server's IP address. We assign dedicated IP addresses to our customers so that in the event that a null route is issued only the customer receiving the attack is affected rather than the entire server. This null route generally lasts 24 hours, however we'll be happy to lift it once we're convinced the attack is over.
If you have any other questions, feel free to post back here or send us a ticket.
I'll keep it short and simple: It was my first time setting up a server, I had no clue what I was doing. The server was up instantly. I wanted to take a map from my previous multiplayer LAN game and transfer it to the server. The guy on chat sat through it with me for a good hour as I tried to figure out that and much, much more. Such patience and service. It helped a lot. I haven't used the server in a bit, but there's been no downtime. They get both my thumbs up for great customer service and great service in general.
Dear person looking to host with NodeCraft,
I've been using NodeCraft for six months and am proud to say their service is unmatched. Support is not only fast, but reliable. Every member of their team can assist you without hesitation. The rewards system is pretty cool (although the gaining of points is rather slow ;D) and I haven't seen anything like it before. NodeCraft was my third attempt at paid hosting, and I believe (at least in this case) that the third times a charm!
Their prices are unbeatable, support team reliable and fast, and most of all (and probably the most important part) the service itself is great. I own a 2GB server that is fast, has had 99% uptime (they took it down for five minutes twice, but it was for upgrades only!), and the server has been able to handle 600,000 block world edits without lag spikes.
I also host two websites through them and am thoroughly pleased with them in that regard as well. The website is fast, there's plenty of storage, and it's easy to upload your website to their servers. Check out the website at www.spaghettisquid.com! I've also bought three domains through them, and that is efficient as well. 15/10 Stars
Thank you NodeCraft, for your outstanding support, knowledge of what people want in hosting, incredible prices, and amazing uptime.
You are by far the best host on the web!
I would like to review for nodecraft as a client. I have to say they are very dedicated as a team to help you with any problem and will not disappoint you for sure. They respond to my help requests within minutes! Very reliable and just over all amazing. I have no lag at all and deliver low-latency. They also got great DDos prevention/protection. All this with a great price! I love it.
I've been with Nodecraft almost three months now, and I have to say: you guys are awesome! When/if I have to open a ticket (more or less user-error help), I get a response within 24 hours. Most of the time it's less than 12! I never have to wonder if my server is up or not. It just is. Again, awesome! Keep up the great work, guys!
NodeCraft have got to be one of best hosting companies i have ever been with. I have been making game servers for around 3/4 years now and MineCraft servers ever since the launch of the SMP. We have had many hosts that have failed us over the past year or two. I must say NodeCraft have not failed us at all. They are unbeatable. Let's start off on their servers. Their servers they run their clients have got to be one of the most outstanding setups i have ever seen. Most hosts seem to try and fill up a server to the brim so they can sponge money out their clients. NodeCraft are not like that. They are a premium hosting that are powered by the best SSDs today. Each and every server has the most beast of a processor. It's fantastic. I host around 100+ people and not once is there lag. Even World Editing millions of blocks of TNT ( you know we all do it :3). I can assure you that you will not experience any lag on these servers hosted by NodeCraft at all. Their connection to the server is brilliant. I'm currently located in the UK and i have rented a server from them, which is hosted in the US. My MS is <70. They have 1GBps up links on each server so uploading and downloading is not a problem.
Let's talk about support. They are just fantastic. Most hosts you place a ticket in and you will get a half hearted response so they can say we answered the ticket in less then 1 hour. Again, this is not the case with NodeCraft. They give a VERY helpful response. Their response times with tickets are great! You will get a great reply within an hour. You have a problem with your server and it will get sorted within an hour max. That's if there is a problem :3. If you get the chance to speak to NodeCraft on Live Chat, well i can tell you that they are kind, helpful and have a great sense of humor. They will get the issue sorted right away. If you still undecided on if their support is dedicated, well let me tell you this. I have never seen a host offer phone support. That goes to show how dedicated they are!
Finally, the prices. I have never seen so cheap prices for what you get. You get a high performance server, great price, fast network speeds and the benefit of a customer support team that is ready to take your phone call, chat and even jump on the server with you.
Even if you are looking for website hosting. I must say that with NodeCraft my websites load pages even faster then before. Your websites are even on SSDs. There is performance everywhere it's great! I have even moved all of my websites to NodeCraft! I don't normally make a review for anyone. However, i can't express how great NodeCraft is. I would recommend them to anyone. Even if you are not an expert at being a server owner, they will help in anyway they can!
Thanks for reading and all i can say is i hope they continue to rise above all hosting companies as they deserve.
