Removal of free Minecraft servers

Unfortunately, due to lack of interest, we've had to discontinue our free servers. If you require your server data, please email support@gamehost.network with your Minecraft username.

Changing server location and hardware

Within the next week, we'll be moving our existing clients over to new dedicated servers situated in Düsseldorf, DE. With this move comes upgraded hardware, as we're switching from Xeon E-2276G chips (13,282 PassMark score) to Ryzen 9 Pro 3900 chips (31,989 PassMark score). We've updated our existing clients of the move, and are providing price reductions for their loyalty through the move. We came to the conclusion that this change was for the best as Düsseldorf is a central European city and could provide better ping times to a larger group of people, while still providing exceptional ping times for our UK clients. Further details about our new hardware can be found on our FAQs section in the coming days.

There will be minimal downtime once the server move commences, however, we are unable to transfer IPs such that clients will have to connect to their services from an updated IP.

Control panel update

We've recently updated our control panel with a security patch. This patches a few exploits found in the previous versions of the panel.

Further Minecraft price reductions!

We've lowered our price per GB of RAM for both Minecraft and Minecraft: Bedrock edition (MC:PE) from £2.50 to just £2! This price amendment will apply to both new and existing customers - there's no better time to join us than right now!

New permanent coupon!

We're making our new coupon, "50off", permanent. This means that any newly registered or returning clients can receive 50% off their first month's service with us.

A big Minecraft update

We've started releasing free Minecraft server hosting. There are a few caveats to free hosting compared to our paid plans, however. To learn more, go to: https://gamehost.network/freemc

Added FastDL

We've added FastDL for our customers running Garry's Mod, CS:GO, and CS:S servers. This means that you can now either use the workshop to compile addons, or have players download content straight from the server (likely quicker)!

Unscheduled panel downtime

This morning there was a memory issue with our control panel VM. This caused it to display an error 500 code for around an hour from ~11:00 BST. This issue has now been resolved.

Decommissioning our first server

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.

"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.
