What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a VDGS?

For complete transparency, here's a list of the advantages and disadvantages of using our VDGS services.

Advantages:

  • Completely dedicated resources, meaning even at peak times (where instances on the node are full or nearly full) you'll receive the same great performance.
  • You're able to switch the game you host at any time through the client area.
  • You're able to alter the slot cap for your server at any time, and set it as high or as low as you please.
  • For Minecraft (and other games, coming soon) you're free to add custom startup parameters, which are typically locked-down on shared hosts.

Disadvantage (there's only really one!):
Servers with dedicated resources tend to be more expensive than using a host which shares resources - though when comparing our pricing to other hosts, you'll notice we're usually much better value.

If you can think of any additions to this list, contact support, and we'll add them here (and credit you, if you'd like).
