We're dedicated to your experience. Nobody has time for laggy Starbound servers

Starbound player freezing due to lag

We're gamers too, and we know that nothing is more frustrating than laggy, crashing servers. Unlike other Starbound server hosting providers, we make sure not to overburden our servers-- that means we maintain an average of only 12 customers per device. This allows your server to access more CPU cores, disk IOs, and RAM. More power per user means your server will have protection against the common headaches of lag and crashes.

See the Difference

  • 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 non-essential files 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.

Still on the fence? Here's some nice stuff people have said about us.

"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"
"Fast, reliable service with knowledgeable staff who not only care about their own company but the community that supports it."
"we use Nodecraft and I don't believe we've had any problems with it at all. I once needed to contact their support to ask a question and got a cheerful reply very quickly."
"I've rented servers from NodeCraft several times over the years, and they've never failed to deliver a great play experience. On the off chance I did have to talk to someone in customer support, the response times were incredibly prompt and helpful. Thanks for your hard work, NodeCraft Team!"
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.
