Minecraft Game Server Host Offers 75% Discount as it Celebrates with Rapidswitch
Creeperhost Offers Huge Savings to Gaming Customers
Rapidly expanding Minecraft game server hosting company Creeperhost is celebrating the launch of its 100th dedicated server with RapidSwitch by offering a 75% discount to gamers.
Creeperhost specialises in Linux VPS Minecraft server hosting and has grown to such an extent that it now has more than 25,000 customers with 6,000 of them online at any time.
The Lincolnshire-based company had just two servers when it moved to RapidSwitch a year ago after suffering support problems with its previous hosting company. Today's launch takes it to 100 managed dedicated servers housed and supported in RapidSwitch's Maidenhead data centre with an additional three racks in RapidSwitch's Nottingham data centre.
Paul Taylor, founder and owner of Creeperhost, said: "RapidSwitch's great technical support has been really important in helping us to get to this stage. All the team are very knowledgeable and go out of their way to help us when necessary."
Creeperhost is expecting further growth after introducing a new control panel that allows customers root access to play multiple games on their own virtual private server for a single payment. The control panel, which is just out of beta, is a brand new concept in the industry which usually offers gamers only shared server experience.
RapidSwitch has custom-built powerful dual-processor servers for Creeperhost, providing redundant power supply and large amounts of RAM and storage capacity.
Neil Christie, Commercial Director for RapidSwitch, said: "Creeperhost has enjoyed phenomenal growth because of the popularity of Minecraft. We have worked together to provide a bespoke hardware platform so their customers get the maximum performance from their gaming experience while they’re online and Creeperhost can control their costs while expanding rapidly."
