  • Had a few questions to ask pertaining to this company. Edit: this is for Ps4

    1. Is Nitrado the only way to go about renting a server for me and my friends?
    2. Is it a safe/reliable place (my card info and such) to engage in?
    3. Anyone have any experience in doing business with them? Are you satisfied with this company?
    4. Should I be apprehensive due to the idea that my server could be shut down by wild card for any given reason?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello,

    Thank you for visiting the Nitrado Community Support Forums.


    A:

    1. Is Nitrado the only way to go about renting a server for me and my friends?- Of course we would like customers to purchase from Nitrado. But yes, other providers do exist. You are able to google for other providers if you wish to see who.
    2. Is it a safe/reliable place (my card info and such) to engage in? As you can see, the web is https. All transactions are safe and secure. You may visit the T&C to read more: Terms & Conditions | nitrado.net Also our Privacy Policy: Privacy Policy | nitrado.net
    3. Anyone have any experience in doing business with them? Are you satisfied with this company? Others can respond. Personally I have used Nitrado for years for personal games servers and they have been up easily 99% of the time. Many cases the issues come from misconfigured servers specs, hardware being available because of high demand, outages internally, steam, or vendor specific which includes Sony/PSN.
    4. Should I be apprehensive due to the idea that my server could be shut down by wild card for any given reason? Not sure why this is asked. WC isnt the server host, Nitrado is. Now if WC say has a security issue, or firmware/software issue- the servers once they receive the update will update. Also pay the bill on time limits that reason for a shutdown.


    Hopefully this answered the basic stuff.

    1. As said above there are many other providers, but I'm not sure of any PS4 ones off the top of my head.


    2. HTTPS doesn't guarantee protection. However I haven't seen any complaints about payment security on these forums, and it's highly unlikely that using your card from Nitrado would be the cause of a potential issue. I bought my server on the Microsoft Store (Xbox Space Engineers server), but most sites (most sites, I can't speak for Nitrado as I don't know) use third-party payment vendors that are certified to handle payments (example: Paying for a service using PayPal from a different site), and those are primarily the targets for security issues like I assume you're talking about.


    3. I'm a customer...and it's been kind of a mixed bag for me. I've been extremely unsatisfied with my purchase, however I do understand that my frustration is because of limitations set by Microsoft. Nitrado support seems to good if you're writing a support ticket, but my call with them wasn't that great. I guess in general I'm aware my situation is unique so I can't complain too much. Their web interface seems to have bugs sometimes (not just for me, just search around these forums a little), but they're usually not game breaking. More like UI bugs such as player count being incorrect on the interface, some charts not displaying data correctly, etc. If you're interested I'd say give it a test run by getting a cheaper server (as in time, not quality (since you can't customize hardware on game servers, only their large game clusters which I don't remember the name of), I'm not sure if all games on here start at 30-days, but if so then just do that) and if you're not happy just find a different provider.

    I will say however I'm very happy scripting works in SE on console hardware, although I can't do much without admin that'd I'd like to do, I am able to write and compile on console hardware, which I assume in itself was a challenge. (for Keen and probably for Nitrado too)


    4. I doubt it. As said above Nitrado isn't Wild Card, so I'd assume as long as you're following Nitrado's ToS you'll be fine.
