Here at CompareGameHosting we come across a lot of websites, products and services that we have an opinion of. Obviously not all of the are great, some are down right terrible. We felt it would be a good idea to start writing reviews based on our own experiences to help others.
Especially when it comes to game server hosting we feel we have the experience required to pass on to others. We have run multiple game hosting companies in the past before our team worked on a comparison site for the industry. The game hosting world is a cut throat market full of interesting characters and practices that would make your skin crawl. This was the inspiration for moving into creating a comparison site in the first place. We believed that bringing all of the companies into one platform with the prices, reviews and features would be massively beneficial to millions of people worldwide.
So now after years and years of perfecting our comparison site we have decided to move slightly in another direction. Adding reviews for other game hosting, gaming, web hosting and other internet based products seems like the logical next step. We hope to add guides and reviews to this section that are not available elsewhere. If the information is available elsewhere then we hope that our well researched topics are of use to people.
This is our list of areas we want to review, if we have not yet finished a subject it will say. We will continue to add to this list as we think of more and more interesting subjects that could do with explaining or reviewing.
The most important subject that we feel needs a unified hub is game hosting control panels. We reference them all over this website and they are the back bone to the game server hosting company. Choosing the wrong one can lead to an extremely weak foundation to a GSP and lead to them providing a terrible service. We speak about the options available to game hosting companies and how the contend with each other.
Very similar to the previous review but focused purely on Minecraft hosting control panels. Several companies decided that the game needed its own custom control panel as the tasks required to run a Minecraft server can be a lot different from normal games. We speak about the different control panels that you can expect to find your Minecraft server hosted on when you rent from a GSP.
Once a game hosting company has a platform for hosting games they need a way to charge customers. The choice of billing control panels that can be used are quite extensive but most of the companies that we work with tend to go with the same. The winning panel has evolved over the years a lot more than the others but require a monthly subscription fee or a large one off payment with yearly update fees.
