Hostile Contact Game Servers was founded in 2005 and was originally named SMAKUGAMES.COM.
In September of 2008 a new website was created and the company name changed to Hostile Contact Game Servers. On October 1, 2008 Hostile Contact acquired AFG Servers and on December 24, 2008 we added SLP-Servers to the list. Our goal is to provide quality, reliable, and affordable game and VOIP servers to the online gaming community.
Our operation is completely transparent and we encourage you to ask questions. Please take a few minutes to read some of the common misconceptions about game server providers.
Don’t get fooled by Public vs. Private servers. Game Server Providers charge more for public servers simply because they are more popular. Public servers use the same amount of resources as Private servers do. At Hostile Contact, most of our servers are $1.00 a slot if you want it to be a private server then put a password on it. We do not place restrictions on how you run your server.
Our servers are all Dual Quad Core systems with 8 gigs of Ram on 100 Mbps connections. Hostile Contact uses the same Data Centers and the same bandwidth providers as the more expensive server providers.
I love this slogan, and I am sure you know who I am talking about, “Frag not Lag.”Â Face it, you will never find a game server that is lag free 100% of the time. Too many factors that cause lag are not controlled by the GSP. Hostile Contact provides quality servers at a great price and we stand behind our commitment of 99% up time, but anyone who tells you that their servers never lag is misleading you.
The system resources used by a 100-tick server are almost identical to a 66-tick server. 100 tick servers do have a slightly higher CPU demand but that is why we use Dual Quad Core servers. 33, 66, or 100 tick is just a $1.00 a slot.
Some think that larger GSPs can provide better performance because they do not over load the servers. At Hostile Contact, we use a 50% resource utilization model. We monitor our server resources and limit the system CPU load to 50% at peak usage. What does this mean? We limit the number of game installs per server based on performance not a set number of game servers.
We guarantee your support ticket will be answered within 24 hours if not your next month rental is free. We also offer live chat, Ventrilo, Teamspeak, and phone support. Go to any of the large GSPs and see if you can talk to a live person about your problem.
Sticking to our business philosophy of $1.00 a slot game servers we have to cut out the overhead and unnecessary expenses. We are in the game server rental business we are not selling web designs. Keeping our cost down allows us pass the savings on to the customer. When you come to our website you are not there to purchase web graphics you want affordable game servers.
We will host any game that has dedicated server files or has the ability to be hosted by private Game Server Providers. Some ranking restrictions will apply. We strive to keep all of our game server prices at $1.00 a slot however depending on resource utilization this is not always possible
Make sure you are getting what you pay for. Many Game Server Providers offer servers at a $1.00 per slot or less. You need to be careful and understand what it is you are getting. Often GSPs will offer low slot rates then restrict your CPU Affinity. Some even offer CPU Affinity upgrades charging as much as $32 for real time Affinity (all 8 cores). Understand this, purchasing a game server with a single CPU Affinity does not mean you have a dedicated CPU core for your server. You are still sharing that single core with other game servers. Donâ€™t get confused and donâ€™t fall for the CPU Affinity scam. At HostileContact.com we do not limit CPU Affinity, all of our game servers run in real time on all cores.
