GamerLive Chile started life in 2010, after the breakdown of an earlier collaborative venture. The company was born to provide gaming servers that would support hundreds of players, and within a few months, it had evolved into one of the leading Chilean providers of online games in the First-Person Shooter (FPS) category.
GamerLive has its own virtualization infrastructure situated in Chile, with Gigabit fiber-optic links that provide its clients with excellent response times. Today, more than 3,000 players rely on GamerLive’s servers. But it’s not all about gaming because this company also provides web hosting, virtual machines for other purposes, and will put your own server in its data center.
GamerLive’s website is in Spanish.
Features and Ease of Use
GamerLive Chile offers one Simple Web Hosting plan, one Web Hosting Reseller plan, four Linux MiniVM plans, and eight PowerVM plans for Linux or Windows. The Simple Web Hosting plan provides:
- 10 GB storage
- 100 GB monthly transfer
- cPanel control panel
- Dedicated IP
- 15 FTP accounts
- 40 email accounts
- Unlimited databases and subdomains
Super-fast SSD storage assures peak performance, and RAID 10 replication ensures your data stays safe in the event of a disk failure.
It goes without saying that GameLive does (Linux and Windows) game servers, but it also offers Linux MiniVM plans for more general purposes.
Pricing and Support
The shared hosting plan is priced competitively, but the order process seems somewhat convoluted unless you pick one of the preconfigured game servers for Minecraft or Counter-Strike. In general, you can pay with various currencies on a range of billing cycles, but this may vary according to your choice of server. The same thing applies to the discounts you might get for longer billing terms, depending on your choice.
You can contact GameLive’s customer support team via email, online form, support ticket, or Facebook. Unfortunately, I received no response to my Facebook Messenger message. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find a very limited FAQ page.
