Ait Cuts Prices On Dedicated Server Hosting

. The love it or hate it attributes that define each yearly developed title always have styles of gameplay that cater to a particular player. This year though, Infinity Ward surprised everyone with their announcement of dedicated servers across all platforms, marking a potentially huge highpoint for a series that has come to define abysmal connections from time to time. Well the game is finally here, so the question beckons; how are those dedicated servers performing? Long story short, no one really knows. Truth is, host migrations and questionable connections are hinting that current generation users may still be stuck on the classic peer-2-peer style or "hybrid" server connections that Mark Rubin spoke about a month ago . When asking around, it seems nothing but confusion and miscommunication about the "dedicated servers" is the context any answer given by Activison's support yields. For example: @InfinityWard @CodGhostsOnline When are dedicated servers expected to be rolled out? @Bigzyyy Hey there, dedi's are live now - check this page for tips on optimizing your setup: http://support.activision.com/articles/en Thanks ^NM Seems pretty cut and dry, but after after a couple of hours, when responding to a similar question, the answer was quit different. @ATVIAssist Where are dedicated servers for COD Ghost on Xbox 360 ???? @JoZephhh Hi Joe. Dedicated servers have been confirmed Xbox, PS3, and PC. This should help with any lag issues: http://tinyurl.com/bekevdw ^MD @ATVIAssist When they come? Clearly there is confusion, and when users started asking about connection issues and host migration's the response was as follows: @ATVIAssist if dedicated servers are live why am I still getting host migration? @Kgtv123 Hey there, the servers on Ghosts are dedicated/listening hybrid servers, sometimes host migrations may still occur. ^SL Click here for the conversation Considering each respected tweet was initialed by a different support personal, a clear answer was simply not going to be achieved. To try and reach further, contact with Activison's community manager was made, asking the same questions: @OneOfSwords Acti support seems to be giving conflicting answers, and all people seem to be pointed to is @IWMarkRubin announcement @NicholasGigante Ultimately, everything I know is posted at http://bit.ly/1oSGhostsFAQ ; if it's not there, I have no new intel @OneOfSwords Acti support seems to be giving conflicting answers, and all people seem to be pointed to is @IWMarkRubin announcement @NicholasGigante The Rubin tweet is all I have to go on as well Click here for the conversation Simply put, when asking about dedicated multiplayer servers on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 the response is met with either silence from Infinity Ward or mixed messaging from Activison. In an attempt to find out the real story, tests were ran in five separate Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer matches on the Xbox 360 with the intent to discover just who or what was hosting the match. So what did the IP locating service discover? Five separate matches, five separate hosts. Now to be fair, these results are not concrete, as more populated areas could easily yield use from these mystical dedicated servers that Mark Rubin spoke about (only once, by the way). Sadly, until someone from Infinity Ward discusses these topics in detail, it's safe to assume a true dedicated service won't be available until Microsoft launch's their own cloud service with the Xbox One . How have your connections in Call of Duty: Ghosts been? Let me know by commenting below, subscribing to me here, on YouTube at YouTube/Pitmonkey and by following me on Twitter @NicholasGigante.

( AIT.com ), a North Carolina company and one of the oldest privately owned web hosting companies in the business, offers a unique customer loyalty and reward program that reduces the cost of Dedicated Server Hosting services by 50% or more after the first six months of hosting services on its Dedicated Servers. Many web hosting providers are pushing cloud technologies and even stressing dedicated cloud instances, but unless these instances run on single-tenant hardware dedicated to a single customer, they are ultimately still shared resources. They do not provide the true isolation that customers get on dedicated high end servers. True Dedicated Servers offer superior performance and customization. And despite the recent price cuts on dedicated cloud instances, they still cost more on a total-cost-for-performance basis than do true dedicated servers. We understand that businesses can choose from a variety of providers and we want to reward our customers for having chosen AIT for their Dedicated Hosting services. Dedicated Servers are a tangible solution that can meet the needs of our customers. At AIT, building a long term customer relationship begins with providing value and sustaining that relationship with proven performance and heroic hosting. We want our customers to know that we are working every day to win their business, said Business Development Manager, Michael Noble. Customers need dedicated resources which cloud technology cannot promise if any device or service is shared. Dedicated Servers offer consistent performance and capability and can flex as the business needs and resources change or grow with a business, said Ghana Dhunga, Chief Information Officer. AITs message is clear for IT professionals and the conversation is about price to performance. Advanced Internet Technologies, Inc., ( AIT ) is a privately-held North Carolina based firm specializing in Internet-based products and services. Founded as a garage enterprise in 1995 by Clarence Briggs, a service disabled veteran businessman, AIT is one of the largest web hosting and dedicated server firms in the world. SPONSOR SHOWCASE
