Net9 is a web hosting company based in Finland. While this vendor does offer shared web hosting solutions, its focus is mainly on video game server solutions. These include Minecraft, Counter-Strike, TeamSpeak3, Rust, S-ven Co-op, and Garry’s Mod. Most Net9 customers are in Finland but this vendor also has a notable presence in France, Sweden, and several other countries in Europe. The Net9 website is available in Finnish, English, and Swedish.
Features and Ease of Use
Net9 hosting solutions include the following standard features:
- cPanel control panel
- 24/7 server monitoring
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Moogo website building tool
- SSL certificate
Net9 data centers are located in France, Finland, and Sweden. Net9 uses powerful and advanced hardware in its servers to guarantee a smooth gaming experience regardless of the number of people playing at any one time. It uses enterprise-grade SSD drives and each server operates on doubled drives to make sure that gaming is uninterrupted even in the event that one disk fails.
The hosting firm’s servers are run as virtual servers (VPS) using KVM technology. The ratio of its virtual cores to its physical cores is 1:1 and the CPU usage is never restricted. Net9 sets up the server for its clients and manages the operating system, making it easy for any user to get get started on its platform even with little or no experience.
For advanced users, the vendor provides SSH connectivity and full access so that they can run their gaming platforms with ease.
Some players that are banned from using a gaming platform can become a nuisance by launching DDoS attacks. Net9 promises all the gaming websites that purchase its solutions that it has put in place state-of-the-art DDoS protection protocols that will keep their platforms safe for their users.
To make it easy for its users, both novice and experienced, to use its platform, Net9 has chosen the cPanel control panel. Users can access this easy to use admin tool even on their mobile devices. The control panel is available in many languages, meaning it is likely that you can use it in your local language.
Net9’s Minecraft Server Platform is a relatively new offering and is still in beta. The vendor is promising to advance this offering as well as include it in many of its other products in the near future.
