Review: Myself and a few friends wanted to play space engineers together. I have never dealt with this game before nor have I used the system they had in place to sort out mods before. So it was all new and took a few hours to figure out and get sorted. I got all the mods and configs sorted and started up the server, there was around an hour or so of waiting time for the server to actually get online. (New system so I had no reason to suspect this shouldn't be the case, although it did seem odd) I load into the server and no mods nor config loaded in, this was irritating due to the wait time. I went back through the settings and looked for issues I could see any so I just restarted the server and waited for it to load again. This took over 2 hours... I started to google see if I could find out if others had issues with these wait times, I found a few forums saying wait times of 20/30 mins, not 2/3 hours. So I figured there were some issues. Not having experience with this sort of system before I had no base to go by so I presumed I was doing something wrong. I sent in a ticket to get some help, help responded quickly and hope was rising, I was told my mods were not correctly added to the server, So they did that for me and I expected that was it! Ill is on the server that night, but the continued to have ridiculous wait times (hours) and I was getting really sick of waiting, but due to thinking it was going to work, I did so anyway. Hours later finally server is up and yet again nothing worked! It was getting real late at this point so I quickly reinstalled the game and got the mods loaded up, and left the server overnight. Hoping it would be up and running the next day. I check it and yet again no change. I started to have doubts about the system they had in place at this point nothing was working. I started being more direct in the ticket I submitted as I wanted answers as to why this isn't working and why it's taking hours to get into the server and nothing ever changes. It hit the 24-hour mark, I was pretty much done! One of the staff members replied to my ticket saying it's your mod list, something is causing conflict and that's why the load times are taking hours and then not working. So I gave it one last chance, and I worked through most of the mods (keep in mind I only had 35 installed) this still took a few hours and then loading times still took a few hours!! It ended errored and I was fed up with waiting! It was a horrible experience! The worst part is they are either lying to save themselves the embarrassment the system is broken or they just don't know their system is broken. I rented a second server from another hosting site. I was amazed to see how much settings and files they are missing, I am no expert with this sort of stuff but I am 100% positive my modpack had nothing to do with the wait times, crashes and errors. Not to mind there config is missing around 70% of the settings. It took about an 90 mins to sort out the new server, with the exact same mod list and with zero issues!! The server restarts and loads up within 5 minutes. I wasted 30+ hours of my life messing around with a broken system that does not work! While being led on by staff! After this experience I am going stay well away from this crowd, I can only speak for my exsperience with them but if they are missing so meny settings for this game it is likely they have other servers with similar issues!

Review: I had some technical difficulties (caused by my own negligence) in which made it impossible to use the server I bought. Not only did I receive prompt service from the Customer Support Team, I also received a full refund of my purchase. I cannot stress how excellent the Customer Support Team are.

Review: Ok, If u need some support, join their discord and find some online mods. I had an issue, Low.ms founder Jonnerz, solved it in two hours. thanks for all ♥

Review: Highly recommended! Support helped me get mods installed and server has been runing great for the past month!

Review: An absolutely shocking company. Cancelled two servers, they continued to bill me for one of them. I raised a dispute against them and it was refunded and I was advised it truly had been cancelled. I have now just had to raise another dispute against them as they've taken money from my account for a server cancelled 3 weeks ago. They will appear as swiftping.co.uk despite being low.ms. I will never use this company again and would heavily discourage anyone from using them. They just seem completely disorganised and not capable of cancelling a service.

Review: After a brief visit in hell with Nitrado worst customer experience, a quick visit hère and I fell in love. I bought an Arma 3 server, and where as it took me 3 hours to setup the mods with Nitrado, it only took me 10 minutes here with their workshop tool ! A great experience and a good interface !

Review: They are the BEST server providers, no doubt! We had the worst experience with Nitrado for a month, issue after issue, every 2 days pretty much, ticket after ticket, unplayable server, and no replies from support, no apologies, no customer service, terrible. We thought all providers would have similar service, and we were very doubtful about changing because we had to migrate our saved game and many things could go wrong. But oh boy, going to LOWMS has been one of our best decisions ever! The migration went so smoothly, zero days server down, I used their Discord to ask a couple questions the first days and got a reply in minutes, their support and customer service is TOP NOTCH! Very kind and friendly. We absolutely recommend them and as soon as our schedules permit it again we will contract with them 100%. BEST SERVER PROVIDERS!

Review: We have hosted over many months with low.ms and have been pleased the entire way through. Great prices, great services. It's as simple as that.

Review: Very fast and effective service. Also one of the cheapest out there with some very respectable specs on their servers. The customer service can be a bit slow when there is high demand which is obvious, but when they get to you they are very fast, quick and polite while handling any problem you throw at them. Also, they have a discord where not only staff can help but there are many community members willing to chip in and help if you have an issue that they have encountered before. Most of the issues I have encountered I caused myself, and I have not run into many, if any at this point in time, issues that their service may have accidentally committed. Thanks for the service and I am excited to keep using it in the future. EDIT: Shout out to Connor and Jonathan who helped me with my many issues and fixed it in seconds! Very Nice and polite pair of people.

Review: I honestly really enjoyed this service. Easy to set up, cool mods, lots of options, you can change the map to what you want, you can do anything you want, its honestly amazing. I almost never lagged once on this server and I bought it for only 10 dollars. Would buy again.

Review: Very happy with the specs of their dedicated servers along with very caring support. When my set-up stopped working normally, they went out of there way to talk to me in real-time and help me out with something that wasn't even their fault. They're always open to help.

Review: Out of all hosting providers. This is by far the top choice in my list. Simple UI with a mod manager included making is hassle-free when downloading specific mods. It is expensive if you want asian server but its worth the payment.

Review: If you’re looking for issue free, and cheap servers. Take a look at low.ms. I’ve had this server for over 2 months now and without any issues. The staff doesn’t shy away for extra help either. as they are almost responding instantly everytime. Im getting my 2nd server as we speak! 5/5
Published Date: 3/26/2020
Review: I've had an excellent experience with low.ms, my server was hosted very reliably and the team was exceptionally fast to help take care of issues that arose (because I'm dumb and make mistakes) as well as with questions regarding general maintenance or advice. I will definitely be continuing to go to low.ms for all of my hosting needs.
