I'm currently at gameservers. It's usually fantastic, but I get these really annoying lag spikes once or twice a day, and I'm fed up with it. I need a really mature server host with stable connections that doesn't overburden their network to sell more servers. Can you guys give me your experiences with certain hosts? Pricing isnt really an issue, I'd rather get what I pay for. Thanks

Gameservers.com. I can tell you with 100% certainty that neither the network nor machines are overloaded. Open a ticket if you are having lag issues.

The best hosting you can get for a TF2 server would be hosting one yourself on a server located in a data center. If you're talking about an actual GSP then discountgameservers.com is the way to go.

Everyone has their own opinion concerning GSPs. Some people have bad experiences with certain GSPs and will talk them down no matter what you say, and others enjoy their service so much they'll praise them to high heaven. If you want the best of the best, then bluechester has the right idea. Otherwise, try getting a list of GSPs that seem reputable and then start looking at their customer reviews (not the ones hosted on their site, google and look around).

Is discount gameservers really that good? I really want to ditch gameservers. Give me some testimonials guys, I feel like when I google it's all messages planted by companies' marketing people.

I've gone through several hosts, but I'd have to say http://darkstarllc.com has been the best one I've found so far. Having been using them for the better half of two years and haven't had any real complaints (that the tech support haven't fixed for me within an hour of the ticket going online). Unfortunately you're going to get a different GSP from every person haha.

The CS 1.6 server in my signature is ran under them. They are the sister site of Nuclear Fallout. They have probably the best control panel, most stable FPS, and best bandwidth provider in the USA. (I'd say the world, but it would be an opinion.)

Check out Global Frag in my signature. They have great servers and the owner (Alex) is very helpful and dedicated with support. They have many discounts on their home page, so check them out.

I personally would recommend any of the following, I have used them all and have enjoyed their service and have nothing to really complain about

Gameservers
Nuclear Fallout
Discount Gameservers
Velocity-Servers
xFactorServers (current host)
