Review: After using other server providers I've come to the conclusion that Havoc Server is the best server around. Anytime I have a problem with the sever my issue is fixed almost immediately!! The customer service is unbeatable. I get a response almost immediately. I would definitionally recommend using them! :)

Review: I had a issue where my server reverted to day 1, and Jeffery did SO WELL in guiding me through the process to revert to a older save with the ark files. If I can give him more than 5 stars I would.

Review: I don't usually leave reviews but I really felt I had to with this company. I am always very skeptical when it comes to using online services but this is defiantly a 5 star company. My server was up and running in less than 30mins and the staff member Zach who dealt with my questions was absolutely amazing and put up with me asking a lot of questions both before I purchased their product and all of my questions afterword. Defiantly a company worth looking into if you are thinking about renting a server.

Review: I have been running 2 ark servers for over 6 moths with Host Havoc and many of my friend that play Ark and other games recommended them to me, so far their quality of service is great, no issue, my servers seem to run faster than friends but that's probably due to all the MODs they pour out on their systems.

Review: Ordered an ArmA 3 server under praise and praise from another individual that runs game reviews. I have ArmA 3 running the same mods on two other hosting companies and they run fine. Havoc has nothing but excuses, tech support that knows nothing about what they are doing, and shoddy hosting software with little to no interface help for novice or intermediate level customers. Guess you really do get what you pay for. Will not only never do business with them again, but will make sure none of my radio station listeners use them either.

Review: Although they talked to me for the first time, they were really sincere and concerned. I am really satisfied with this. A selling point that I can easily recommend to everyone. They make a return in max 1 minute. I am saying as a very detailed person; You can shop with peace of mind ....

Review: The staff helped my noob self to get my server up and running after the num 1 ranked so called server host left me hanging and waiting over six hours to get it online then when it would not even connect never responded so I moved to Host havoc where the staff spent a hour with me helping me setup my mods and shoot why and what and get everything up and running. Thank you guys !

Review: Let me just start out this review with a few things. First things first I love the service I receive with Host Havoc. Really good game servers that I very rarely have problems with. Let me remind you if I ever do have a problem that I can't solve myself it takes 2 minutes to whip up a support ticket and they respond within 10 minutes, not only do they respond fast but they provide really good suggestions and advice on how to fix the problem. I'm a host havoc customer for life. I recently had a problem with my Unturned Game Server and I made a ticket. As usual they responded within 10 minutes and although it hasn't been resolved yet I love the fast and reliable customer support I am getting, the staff responds in a mannerly fashion and they try their hardest. Also to end this off the control panel and the website are 10/10 the easiest I have ever used. I definitely support Host Havoc and recommend if you are looking for a Game Server you use them. 10/10
