Today we're putting to rest our initial node, gs1.gamehost.network, as we migrate our customer's data over to a faster server. This was a necessary change to keep to our word about our performance - more specifically, the server specifications we offer to all game services.
Decommissioning our first server
"Roundifying" our website
We've taken steps to make our site even easier on the eyes, by making buttons, cards, and images have rounded corners. We believe this suits our brand far better, and makes the site look snazzier, too.
Massively reduced Minecraft pricing
Today, having made agreements between new providers, we're able to provide Minecraft server hosting (including Bedrock Edition) from £2.50 per GB - a reduction of one entire GBP! This likely makes us one of the cheapest UK Minecraft server hosts, so there's never been a better time to host a Minecraft server with us.
Doing away with lowercase
You might not have noticed, however, doing things like titles and buttons in lower case was a styling cue we took when designing the website. Having received feedback from several people that the look was cluttered and unprofessional, we've reverted to capitalizing at least the first letter of every title and button. The only lowercase text that remains is our name, but that's staying that way.
partnering with hostfilter
We've partnered with a popular GSP comparison site, HostFilter! We've done this to increase our search visibility and to serve more clients, but also allow our customers a fair comparison between us and other, older hosts.
garry's mod content fix
Due to the size of the content packs, like CS:S, the mod manager would fail to install them. We have greatly increased the mod manager's timeout on downloads, thus larger downloads should be fine. With this fix, once you initiate a download, you no longer have to remain on the page.
live chat - now live
Inventive title, we know. We've setup a live chat function on our website so people browsing for a server can ask us questions. Clients may also use this function for instant support, which will be available from 9:00 till 23:00 (BST) 7 days a week!
price reductions across our popular titles
We're slashing the prices of some of our most popular titles. ARK: SE has been reduced from £0.70 to £0.50 per slot, CS:GO from £0.50 to £0.40 per slot, and Rust from £0.35 to £0.25 per slot.
changing over to blesta for our support area
We've decided to collate all of our client services in one place, in our client area, to allow customers to more easily create and respond to support tickets.
our first coupon code
To get the ball rolling, we've introduced our first coupon code, '10off'. It gives you 10% off your first month with us. In the future, we'll likely roll out further public and private coupons, but due to the nature of our billing system, may not be able to offer coupons to existing customers.
