An excellent choice for 7D2D
I was having some really concerning issues with my payment not flagging me as having well, paid, and Indifferent Broccoli got back to me within 10 minutes of me posting that i needed help, he fixed my issue no problem and was all around super pleasant. I've been using his services for a while now and he has never been anything but Excellent in his customer service.

What an awesome server host. The price is great (cheaper than my previous server!), set up was quick and super simple, and their response time to requests is beyond expectation. I needed some help setting up operator and adding some mods. They answered me within minutes and were working on my requests immediately after I told them what I wanted. Our mods were loaded and working within 20 minutes. My group really didn't expect to play with mods until the next morning!
