Looking for UK server rental...

Post by Duffking » 06 Aug 2006 12:30

Hi all, some peeps are looking to get a clan started in the UK, but we haven't had much luck finding a UK provider of Trackmania servers. We're looking for a 20+ slots server, from a reliable provider in the UK, and at a fair price.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Something huge like 4420000 results is usually barely more useful than getting 0 results though. :)
I Googled for "UK clan server" and got 1980000 hits, still too much, but it does seem to have some valid hits right at the top.
Not sure if those are any good, I'm not into this whole rent-a-server-thing.

I can recommend a few based on past experience with some that crop up in that huge results list lol

Game2XS/Instantgameserver & Jolt Online Gaming

Both of which have been around a while, however we've never rented a server from Jolt.

Our team's always used IGS/G2XS and they've been great in area's of support etc, but it depends what your after i guess.

Also, we're pretty newish customers regarding clan servers, we hosted most of our games privately up until around 2003 and still do for a few unsupported games.

I did search, and I checked those two sites out. Problem arises when the 'supported games' lists on those sites don't mention Trackmania. The Game2Xs one does, but for some reason that didn't come up in my search.

Zippage: Thanks for the offer, I believe the clan leader is talking to some peeps in your clan about that at the moment.

You may be best just renting a server that you have root access to.

But read T&C's very carefully, most unlimited bandwidth server rental has a limit on the line speed (usauly around 256kB/s)

I am annoyed by the blatant Adware in the TMN launcher (I own TMU and don't need a web page reminding me of its existance)
