Well, I’m looking for a GMod host.
I’ve been bouncing between hosts, and have already tried three of them:
Art of War Central
Essentially, I’ve had problems with all of them. Of note, Xenon Servers was laggy as crap, probably because they overload their server boxes.
MPServ has their own control panel called Wrench, instead of the usual TCAdmin, which is fine. The console logging can be somewhat glitchy, however, and while I have 20 slots on there, I don’t like the lag. Everyone’s ping skyrockets after about 50 physics props spawned with 10 people on.
It’s been so long since AoWC I have forgotten the problem with them, but I left for a reason. I may revisit them if need be.
I’ve seen some rather heated debates, and I’d like to know what hosts people recommend these days. One host I’ve seen particularly popular amongst some threads is Elpis Host (elpishost.com). They seem to be rather reputable all-around, with decent service, according to other threads. Also, unlike some other hosts, have a choice between Windows and Linux, whereas Elpis does offer this.
So, this brings me to my two questions:
Which server host is best, based off the options above or anything else anyone knows of?
Which operating system to use: Windows or Linux, if I had the choice between the two for a GMod server?
