Purchasing Minecraft server hosting From Chromobyte, was an excellent choice. The pricing tier is comparable with other hosts. Setup of the actual server was prompt. Also the support with ordering web hosting, and sub domain was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this hosting service to anyone looking for a Minecraft server host.

The History: Owned a series of shared servers through MPServ, bought a expensive dedicated for $210/mo for the specs of Xeon 1230 3.2quadcore, 16gb RAM. Searched for a shared host and found Chromobyte and their cheap prices.

At first glance I thought, well I’m going to get a subpar control panel, delayed support, and a slew of other messes but it will be worth saving monthly money. Remi, the owner, offered me the exact same specs as MPServ for $165/mo. I gladly accepted and because I transferred hosts, I received a -5% off discount! I took advantage of that! Now I’m writing this review because this is unbelievably the best host for dedicated servers, since dedi server owners are knowledgable of common errors and bugs that can occur and fix themselves.

AGAIN, if you own a dedicated server – you should switch to these guys now!

-=- Support-=-

Although I have not used Chromobyte’s support very often, Remi, the owner, helps me with my issues directly through Skype. Some might think this is a bad thing however it leads to faster responses and a more personalized atmosphere. He’s usually on for 8-10hours of the day and is very prompt with his answers. Chromobyte offers to move the files from host to host for free, which sold me! However, I ended up working with Remi because we had to move 4 server zip files over and upzip them via SSH, but hey, it was worth it!

-=- Features -=-
Chromobyte uses the basic multicraft set-up so it’s nothing new. Moving from MPServ’s “pretty” control panel to this one actually made me happier, as they sacrificed looks of their product for performance. As a dedicated server owner, I’m looking for what gets the job done and Chromobyte’s multicraft is 100000% more responsive to stop/start/restart the server. Also, the way the config files are setup and in browser FTP are huge pluses when it comes to editing some bugs really quick-like!

-=- Performance -=-
Since I switched to Chromobyte none of my servers have been down below 20.0 TPS and ran out of RAM unless it was my fault for world editing huge chunks or the like. All server downtime is also because of me. Performance wise, the RAM and CPU are amazing. I’ve yet to have issues with them since joining in September.

-=- Price -=-
Ask yourself: Same specs for a dedicated, sacrifice a eye candy control panel for one that’s more responsive, and drop $50-$60 off the monthly cost. I was sold instantly when Remi gave me this quote – and immediately switched. Also he provided me with free website (since that was on my old host too) since I bought a dedicated server!

-=- Website -=-
Same CPanel website as MPServ, yet Remi seemed to cater to my needs for SQL databases, bandwidth, and etc. Nothing much to say here as website perks aren’t really needed. However, he does seem to be missing Softaculous.

-=- Uptime -=-
I believe there is a 95% uptime guaranteed on his shared hosting plans. This doesn’t occur to me, but another reason to switch, even if it’s just shared hosting. Remi manually creates every server and doesn’t result to an API to do it for him, yeah it’s slow but it’s done right the first time.

Overall:
SWITCH NOW – Best decision I made with the server!

I was recommended to chromobyte by a friend in the industry.

Right from the get go chromobyte has provided top notch (no pun intended) services to me. Even before I purchased my server I was able to speak with the support team for around 2 hours to get all the details.

Their support is one of their main selling features, they help you make your server the best it can be and care for you on an individual level more than “the un named host”. As I have eluded to I moved away from my old hosting company to them. They helped make the transfer as smooth as possible and they were there every step of the way.

I look forward to seeing how this quality of service persists, I have a feeling it will. The owner and other staff seem really dedicated to what they do and take a huge interest in my well being as a customer.

Keep up the great work chromobyte!

so I found this server host on Google. If you’re looking to find cheaper prices, this is the place with it. First off, server installation was a breeze. We recently transferred all of our Minecraft Worlds, plugins, you name it on this server. Took no more than 4 hours (it was a 5.26gb file) to get the server running. Remi, the owner is fantastic. Answered my ticket promptly and did the actions very quickly. Very professional. When my server was diagnosed with a faulty CPU, they quickly replaced it. I love their service and will definitely recommend them to anyone else.

I recently moved my server from my more expensive host at witch I was paying $20 a month for 1.5gb of ram. When the time came around to upgrade, I began to look around at better and cheaper hosts.

It was then that I came across Chromobyte. And WOW, was I surprised, they have awesome support staff, fair performance and of course a great price.

Pros: Good performance, No downtime, solid support, Amazing price

Cons: I actually don’t like multicraft, it is kind of a step down from my old hosts website. And I also don’t like the startup script they run for the server, it constantly reallocates RAM based on how much the server needs. Sounds great doesn’t it? The issue is that it seems to not be able to allocate enough sometimes and when I type /lag ingame to see ram usage, I can see that there is sometimes only 90 or 200mb or free memory! This can cause some lag

Okay so I had some trouble with my old company and they just weren’t willing to help us when we needed it, the server was completely down by some Java IO Exception which was our fault apparently. After some quick thinking and arguing via support tickets (Politely of course). I decided to start hunting for a server I looked at a lot of hosts they all seemed reasonable but one stuck out. That was ChromoByte, I signed up for the Minecraft VI package and my account was setup fairly quickly bearing in mind its a manual setup. I had to download a lot of data via my old hosts FTP – I sadly missed the transfer from another host feature – Where ChromoByte do the work for you! They’ll even give you a discount if you provide proof that you’re moving. Anyway back to the Server this is what I got:

Disk Space: Unmetered
RAM: 4GB Dedicated
Slots: 95
Bandwidth: Unmetered
Price Lock In Guarantee: Yes
Price: $39.99/mo

Now that is unbeatable. I have yet to find anything near this value. Anyway that’s great but its not the best bit, the best bit is the sheer level of support provided by (in my case) this guy (Remi – Thanks) He was more than helpful my DNS would still be down, my website would be down and without the DNS alone the server would be down. ChromoByte really do go above and beyond and I can’t recommend them enough. They are a huge pleasure to work with and I am incredibly happy to have them as my host.

Thanks Remi, thanks ChromoByte!

Great Hosting! First one I chose and loving it! As soon as I opened a Ticket to ask a question I got a response instantly! The Control panel is simple to use and the prices are great for what you are getting! Chromobyte is probably the best Hosting out there! I chose Chromobyte cause when I went onto BestMinecraftHosts it had 0 Complaints! Just loads of thanks! Thanks Guys!!

Chromobyte has been my second server host, and I will never leave them.

My first hoster never got my server up, it was when 1.8 first came out and they made excuses. Then, when I had one week left to pay my invoice for the next month I got over 100 e-mail, all sent within 15 minutes. I never thought of them again.

Then, after looking around for months for a good, reliable, cheap server hoster, I found Chromobyte. I was impressed by there prices and the reviews I had seen of them. So, I tried them out, buying the lowest tier first to test. The server was up very quickly, and ran very smoothly. I put around 12 plugins on it and there is still no lag with five people on it.

Their support was AMAZING! They were quick to respond to tickets. What was the most amazing part was that they stuck with me. I had many new-b questions that, now that I look back at them, were very simple to resolve.

After looking for months, I haven’t found any hosters who have better prices than Chromobyte. They have low prices, but high quality.

I must say, their website is very nice. I like the nice, sleek feeling it has to it, and it is very easy to navigate in.

So far I have only had two times where my server has shut down without me personally shutting it down. However, the first time I had some people on my server and it shut down, this was while I was sleeping. I got a PM on the MinecraftForums about it and immediately checked. I went into the control panel and saw that the server was actually up. I don’t know if it automatically started back up, or what, but it was very helpful and some people were on it.

All in all I have had an amazing experience with them. Everything about their service is five star… well, diamond.

You can really tell how a host or any company does business by how they respond to trouble. Last night my server went down. The console kept claiming it was due to a lack of memory which made no sense as nothing had been added to the server between the time it was working correctly and the time it went down. And Only 1 person was online.

I tried to get it back up and failed. I freaked. (I am a bit dramatic) I sent skype messages and opened a ticket and a twitter message. Fizzyjoe got the messages (probably when he got woken up by the panicked texting)

At this point he found that someone was hacking/stealing the ram dedicated to my server and hogging the cpu. (Not nice) He got the server back up. However some data had been lost in the configs and something still wasn’t working.

He could have just told me to start from an older backup and lose the work I put into getting my configs right. Instead he spent an hour and a half on skype taking plugins out one by one till he found the one causing the issue. Then he rebuilt the SQL database that had gotten corrupted. And while I will have to redo some of the code I do not have to redo all 23 configs.

And my members didn’t lose the cities and villages they built. Fizzy was amazingly patient. He went above and beyond making the server as close to what it was as possible.

Honestly we all know in the world of minecraft hosting problems will occur. Its what a company does when those problems occur that make all the difference in the world. And holding my hand (metaphorically) while fixing my broken files is the kind of service that goes a long way.

Thank you so much Fizzy and Chromobyte. (I’d still like and address for the meanie)

(I knocked the website down a few points cause I can’t read the text on the bright green not enough contrast.)

This server hosting is awsome. The hosting is running MultiCraft, i registered when the company was in preopened version. The server is running perfectly fine.
When the server gives you a out of memmory or something like you need a server restart to fix the problem, usually it restarts itself. The service is running 99.9%~100% uptime. Also the company gives you an optional MySQL database for your server.
Overall its 10/10. Best value server. Fast support. Awsome performance and price.
I you have a server and you are paying a lot for the same, this is your choice.

These guys have been nothing short of a pleasure to work with! They painstakingly led me through the confusing world of server set-up from beginning to end step by step! I have never owned a private server in my life! These guys made it look easy! I would hands down recommend Chromobyte to any first time server enthusiast!

Forgot to vote on my last message.

AMAZING Host. Great support. If anything went wrong (even if it was a problem with something I did wrong) they were RIGHT on it. Helped me with a map copyright issue and got it settled within a couple days!

I will be sticking with them for a while. They are the cheapest host i could find with good support. Usually when you pay this much, you get terrible support. But that isn’t the case with Chromobyte.

This… Is THE best server hosting company EVER to walk the face of this Earth! What all Minecraft users want, they GOT IT!

Support: I cannot even start how awesome their support is! They answer back super-fast, with very helpful info! They helped me install permissions perfectly, and didn’t stop until it worked perfectly! Never has this company let me down!

Features: Man are they feature-packed! They got one-click install plugins, to installing the latest bukkit dev build for you! They got the features! And TONS of them!

Performance: They have super fast servers, with no lag! It never lagged, unless we removed nearly 200,000,000 blocks at once, then did it lag a bit! The serve performance is AMAZING!

Price: Can you find a better price then this? IMPOSSIBLE! Unless you are buying a 2mb ram server! The prices are CHEAP, and very affordable! Every place I’ve seen, has a WAY more expensive price than this! I love it!

Website: Their website is fantastic, and so is their client area, and the control panel for the server! The ONLY feature they need, is an iPhone App to control the server, because I always check my server on my iPhone. But the control panel is SO navigatible, I can even use it on my iPhone!

Uptime: I have NEVER seen the server go down! It is 24/7 and nothing happens to make it go down!

Overall: DEFINETLY THE BEST SERVER HOSTING COMPANY EVER! If you have common sense (or a mind) you WILL chooses this AWESOME COMPANY!
