Hello.

Recently Iíve come to notice many web hosts blocking game query ports on their serversí firewalls. My current host, iFastNet, blocks all game query ports so SourceBans (installed on my site) cannot reach the game server or vice versa. It sucks as they refuse to open ports.

Can anyone recommend a decent web host that uses cPanel and that allows these ports be opened, and if possible, not be overpriced for storage.

Iíd appreciate any suggestions.

I been using https://billing.nitrous-networks.com/cart.php?gid=1 for 7 years. Make sure to add game server ip to the "Remote MySQL" setting.

Nvm, I was running an old SB version before they added the composer requirement. Now, if you want to install or upgrade to the latest SB version, you can't because this host doesn't have composer running and no SSH access to install it. I contacted the host support team to see if they install composer for me.

So I just reinstalled SB and set it all up. (including databases.cfg) Once I add a server (it is running) I get this XML error:
Code:
Error: the XML response that was returned from the server is invalid. Received:
Notice: fwrite(): Send of 25 bytes failed with errno=1 Operation not permitted in /home/<snip>/public_html/bans/includes/vendor/xpaw/php-source-query-class/SourceQuery/Socket.php on line 62
