Blue Fang Solutions Review
2019 October 2nd
Blue Fang Solutions is a specialist game server hosting provider that supports titles such as 'Left for Dead 2', 'Minecraft', and many more.
Now, it's time to check how well this gaming service works? Are you in for buttery-smooth gameplay or dropped connections? Let's go have a look.
What is Blue Fang Solutions?
Blue Fang is not your average web host. Instead of letting you host a public website, Blue Fang Solutions provides multiplayer game server hosting. If you're looking for a standard web host, consider alternative solutions.
Blue Fang offers just over 60 game titles. That's not as many as competitors such as Game Servers, but the Blue Fang catalog still includes plenty of popular releases like Arma II.
The other Blue Fang product is voice server hosting. These are low-latency in-game audio communication systems designed to help you talk to teammates or other players.
Blue Fang Solutions Review: First Impressions
The Blue Fang website is fairly sparse. I'm always concerned when a hosting company doesn't display information about its history or server infrastructure, so Blue Fang's lack of an 'About Us' page was a concern for me. Fortunately, I eventually found server infrastructure stats in Blue Fang's blog-style 'News' website section.
Signing up for a game server was straightforward. All I needed to provide was a server name and payment information. It was possible to choose from numerous options to enhance my server including a dedicated IP addon and a high priority CPU option.
Excellent Global Server Locations
That's excellent for international gamers. With game hosting, having access to a local server is one of the best ways to reduce latency and, therefore, gameplay lag.
Useful Control Panel
Managing my Blue Fang game server with the included Overseer control panel was easy. I found the ability to monitor server load in real time very helpful.
Excellent Mod Support
But more impressively, with a 'Silver Support' add on option, you can get technical game mod assistance. Blue Fang is careful to point out that its technicians can't help with all mods though.
Blue Fang Solutions Pricing
Prices are different for every game. Costs for older titles like Minecraft begin at $4.99/month while newer games such as ARK: Survival Evolved cost at least $19.99/month.
Most servers include 40GB of storage and support for 10 simultaneous players. Add-on costs are fixed across the Blue Fang catalog:
- Dedicated IP port: $4.99/month
- Silver Mod Support: $10/month
- High CPU Priority: $10/month
Both Blue Fang Solutions voice server packages cost at $3.00/month for 10 player servers.
Blue Fang Solutions Performance
During my BlueFangSolutions review, I found my server rarely experienced lag. I also tested its performance using Bitcatcha which confirmed that response times were adequate for the USA and Europe.
Blue Fang Solutions - Final Thoughts
I was impressed with Blue Fang Solutions' game hosting service. Prices are affordable and my server performed well. However, it would be nice to see more titles added to the Blue Fang game catalog in the future.
