  1. Hello all,

    As many of you know, I'm a pretty big player in the game server hosting business, having run my own company until just recently and working as the Executive Advisor for a company with thousands of active servers.

    Please note that this is not meant to be malicious. I am performing a long-term report on the hosting market (Especially in terms of Game Servers, VPS, and Dedicated Servers) and I have chosen to use a multitude of hosts operating out of one of the fastest-growing hosting locations in the U.S. (Chicago) to perform this phase. Thus, any help is certainly appreciated.

    I wanted to perform some networking tests on active communities.

    (1. All of the IPs that will be posted below are in Chicago, IL.

    (2. All I ask is that you fill out this rather simple form:


    IPs You Tested: The IPs from the list below that you tested. - Please note that you do not have to try all of them.

    RESULTS: Use if you don't mind. Basically, just paste the results from your ping / tracert tests.

    As stated above:

    I'd like to ask that you do ping <IP> and tracert <IP> in your Command Prompt or Terminal from your home PC. Then, copy-paste the results on or your favorite text paste hosting site.

    The IPs:
    Steadfast Networks -
    Choopa Data Centers -
    [email protected] -
    NFOServers (InterNAP) -
    Ubiquity Servers -

    The reason the above providers have been picked is because they are common choices in the gaming, cloud, and dedicated industry.

  4. Any other takers? It'd certainly be appreciated and would help me out immensely to get results other than my own personal ones.
