These might be a small review or a big one, depends on who you ask
But, Xenon Servers have yet to let me down, Started back when Gforce was actually starting out, got a free server from them, and since then, i've been playing minecraft using my server for months, its a spectacular service when it comes to the fact that when i want to play on my server, i get 0 Lag, (Latency) and i am always able to build to my hearts joy when i go on, One of the minor and probably little stupid complaint i have is that i just wish we could have a way to help draw in more modpacks to your modpack section, theres a whole bunch of modpacks out there waiting to be installed, and it would be amazing to have pages of pages of modpacks that we could choose from, variety of things that let us be more creative. But as said, that was just a minor complain, I know it might not be possible but it would be cool.
Over all with Geforce Servers the fact that i can play with no lag, compared to a lot of other hosts makes me happy, and the support team is A+ when it comes to awnsering my tickets, and or emails or etc, I would go with them forever, Means a lot more to stay with Xenon Servers then go with another host i don't know and get no satisfaction from there ticket service or the provider banning me from using his services cause he acts like a 5 year old when it comes to people he hates and not wanting to give a account to a paying member on his site. (ElpisHost im looking at you).
All but said, I recommend Xenon Servers to be anyones choice, regardless of who they are or what they do.
I've been with Xenon since LethalDrive went offline and transferred all of their customers over... so, nearly 3 years now. Always been extremely pleased. Uptime is basically 100%, and on the rare occasion that they do need to make an update, us server owners are notified well in advance. Prices are solid and the server performance is flawless. The control panel is simple but still has pretty much every functionality that one could want in a control panel. The XS support team are professional, friendly, and very helpful.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Xenon. Minecraft hosts are a dime a dozen since the game exploded into the mainstream, and are typically unprofessionally operated and short-lived. XenonServers is a well established hosting company that existed prior to the explosion of Minecraft, hence why I am very happy to entrust my server to them.
I started making minecraft servers 4 years ago and I've had xenonservers for a while now and so far its been the best host for the price! Totally recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable minecraft host!
That is a fair observation, we are not on the expensive end of the scale but not on the cheap end of the scale either. Minecraft servers are very much a "get what you pay for" situation. Cheaper hosts tend to resell or overload their servers whereas the more expensive ones own their own hardware etc.
We feel we have a good balance of both. We don't overload our servers and we own our own hardware in our Chicago datacentre. We also have a small full-time support team who have plenty of experience and knowledge as opposed to some cheaper hosts who may have a large team of part-time semi-skilled team being paid commission.
Hopefully that offers some helpful insight into our pricing!

Can't believe it's been almost 6 years since i've been with Xenon. 3 years ago I said I haven't thought about leaving, and it still holds true. It's time for an updated review.
They've been a great server host throughout the years, Garry's Mod and Minecraft. Their pricing is pretty competitive when compared to other hosts. Sure you may find one that's cheaper, but do you really trust them? Do you know how their support team can handle your issues? As said in my earlier review, I discovered Xenon Servers when I was Administrating a Gmod server for several years (09'). I found out their host had been with Xenon and they've had no problems. That's when I knew I could trust them with a reliable server and service.
6 years and counting, it's been great. Honestly, their support team is still the best out there, they will respond to you pretty damn fast. Oh and they don't act like robots, they actually understand your issues and are willing to work with you. This goes a long way to earning the trust and respect of your customers, and they have a little fun too in the tickets sometimes. Any problems that have happened on their end that's out of your control, they will make it up to you in a reasonable fashion.
If you're still thinking of getting a server with Xenon, know that i've been with many other server hosts and they have always been difficult to work with. There was even a time where I opened a ticket just to ask a simple question. I felt I could get a better price elsewhere, yet they were honest with me and explained in detail the reasoning behind their pricing (as such with the above post). They weren't surprised I was looking elsewhere to see if I could get a better price. But when they told me what they have and how everything works, I was convinced. The support representative was honest enough to tell me he would be doing the samething, looking for alternatives but to know the real differences. Oh and without their support team, I would not be here. That's literally the one main reason I haven't left them.
I appreciate all you've done for me and hope to continue. You've been great to me over the years. Here's to another 6 years! Haha
