Low Latency (No Lag) Servers with DDoS Protection

Starbound player freezing due to lag

We're gamers too, and we know that nothing is more frustrating than lag and crashes.

Unlike other Starbound server hosting providers, we make sure not to overburden our servers— this means we average only 12 customers per device. This allows your instance to access more CPU cores, disk IOs, and RAM. More power per user means you will have protection against the common headaches of lag and crashes.

  • 3.8+ GHz Processor (CPU)

    Our servers majoritively use an Intel® Xeon® E-2174G or equivalent.

  • 64GB ECC RAM

    Error correcting and highly clocked, this RAM is deployed for high speed performance and stability.

  • Enterprise Grade Solid State Drives (SSD)

    We use Enterprise SSDs to power all customer game servers.

  • Enterprise Grade Hard Disk

    We host our game servers on the SSD, but backups, the OS, and other files not required by your game server are run on standard disks.

  • DDoS Protection and High Performance Network

    DDoS attacks are a constant threat to game servers. Our network is built for network attack reliance.

  • Linux OS

    We've built our entire infrastructure on top of a Linux ecosystem to focus on performance, security, and stability.

"Great service. I have used them 7 months now. I really enjoy their service. Every time I've had an issue there customer service system has been very efficient and has really helped me get through the problem. They have a very self-explanatory server setup system. They also get pretty good discounts every now and then. Would recommend"

Game BIO:
Starbound

Starbound is an indie sandbox survival game with crafting elements set in a vast universe. At the start of the game, you find yourself stranded in space with your ship badly damaged. You're left with no other choice but to beam down to a nearby planet, gather resources, and work on repairing your ship to explore stars.

Whatever way you want to play the game, Starbound has something for you. You can explore, build, craft, collect, or crawl dungeons. Environments include just about everything from ancient temples to futuristic metropolises.
