The servers may experience downtime during tournaments, such as the Ladle. This is to provide the best quality server we can during the time resources are needed the most and when it's most important for users.
Servers are run on a dedicated server running Ubuntu Server. It currently has a dual core CPU, which is likely to be upgraded to a quad core. It also currently uses a 2GB stick of DDR2 RAM, which will probably be upgraded as well. The bandwidth allows approximately 35 Mbps download & 5.5 Mbps upload.
All servers have their own login and control panel accessible by clicking the "Control Panel" link in the navigation bar. Our CP provides you with access to a remote console along with a file editor for creating, deleting or modifying server files. You can also include scripts and configuration files with the click of a button.
Lightron provides free server hosting while resources are available. To avoid overloading the server, you're usually given an expiration date on your account until you've shown to not have a dead server. If the server seems to do well, it will be extended.
