I have to agree with Mayhem.

In fact, I am so pleased with nFo that this email I just recieved really pisses me off. It came around the same time I sent in the form for a nFo Ventrilo server:
Hi, my name is Eric and I am writing from EternalGamerz.
http://Www.eternalgamerz.com and #eternalgamerz on gamesnet east. I would like to
comment on the follow few things

1) Nuclear fall out is not that impressive. I can set up servers withint 5
minutes of payment
2) I can cut you price in 1/2
3) I am connected to an oc192 backbone with 2.8 ghz dual cpus 1-2gb ram
and 120 gb hd and only 6 servers per computer.
4) 24/7 support ( we literally take shifts and don’t sleep)
5) if you mess up your server…reinstall is free through my script
6) Comes with easy to use control panel

I being a gamer myself am tired of seeing gamers getting ripped off by
high prices from places like Game Daemons...etc

We’re here to offer low ping servers for a reasonable price

We also offer 1 gb of free webspace, stats. (HLTV and ventrilo available
too)

I was just wondering if you could give me a try. Thank you.


BTW...NFO lies about their service...I have proof and also to make a HL
server..u copy and paste a server...it should take no more than 5 min


Also, your server comes with any MOD you want and its up in 10 min or your
money back . I personally programmed a script that automatically installs
your server to your liking. Ping accelerator is standard. You can im me at
ejc317 and visit us in MIRC. Thank you .
Fat chance I'd ever leave NFO for this!!

Tom, John keep up the good work!!

I like that people are always trying to compare themselves to us (it shows that we have become the gold standard for the industry). I also like that nobody has ever been able to back up claims that they are actually better ;).

Thanks for your support! :D

Sounds like they're pretty desperate ;). Well, a lot of these places are just starting and don't have any customers yet, so that makes sense. Plus, it's the holiday season, so server rentals are way down as people spend their spare cash on other items like Christmas presents instead.

Most of the places that are soliciting you will probably be out of business within six months :?. Especially if they offer lower prices, since margins are razor-thin as it is. We found that bandwidth usage was very low at first, until people discovered how lag-free the servers are, and then our bandwidth bills skyrocked.

This is interesting, eternalgamerz is just a front for sonichosting. I wonder how many other companies are really the same company.

Another weak company that spams a lot is CSGServers. I have seen a lot of people buy their cheaply priced servers only to find that they are constantly down, or they never even get set up in the first place. You get what you pay for, which means you get nothing for the most part. I used chill in their channel cause I was pretty much a local and all I saw were people bitching about them constantly.

There are only 2 companies that I can think of that offer reliable hosting, and that is NFO and GameDaemons. GameDaemons is a company I would never use because my ping to their servers is weak considering they are based in Texas and I am in Central Oregon. I ping in the high 80's and 90's to the GD servers but I ping to our server on an average of 23ms and I am easily close to 500 miles away from the server.

Awesome.
