Our Hardware

Before We Dive in

This comparison will be comparing our 1gb Pro package to other companies 1gb packages. We’ll be coving the CPU clock speed, Single Thread CPU score, RAM, and storage.

If a host doesn’t offer a 1gb package, they’ll be listed with the amount of RAM included

The Facts Don’t Lie

When we say stop being overcharged for hosting, we really mean it. To give other hosts a chance we compared our Pro packages, to their cheapest package, and still come out on top for the price. So if you’re looking for a cheap, powerful server, you’re already in the right place.

 

What about features?

We know that hardware isn’t the only factor that goes into the cost of a server. The features and support offered is also a big factor.

Don’t worry, we’re doing a thumping good on there too. We even made another chart to show you. Check it out on our panel page.

How We Got The Facts

Alright, we’ve shown you the facts, this is how we got them. All data in the table was collected on the 21st June 2021. We’ll check back on our table from time to time to make sure it’s still correct.

The system specs we used were listed on the host’s website. That’s why some entries are marked with “???” as that information was not available.

The thread rating score was taken from PassMark. We used the Single Thread Rating as this is a more relevant test for game server hosting.

 

What Does High & Low Mean

Unlike Kinetic Hosting, some hosts have a range of server specs. So based on location or luck, you could be paying the same price for worse specs. High is the most powerful hardware you could get, and low is the least. Here at Kinetic, we’ve made sure that no matter the location you always get the same hardware at the same price.

 

Why Are Some Hosts Missing?

We can’t list everyone, but we feel we’ve covered most of the bigger hosts. Some hosts are not listed due to there not being public information on the server specs they use. Creeper Host and Scalacube fall into this category.
