Server 2 Upgrade - This Weekend

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 6:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Weekend of Feb 27th

Server 2 will undergo an operating system upgrade this weekend. Our current operating system that we use for legacy games is now becoming incompatible so we ahve decided to upgrade it. This is long overdue but we didn't want to break compatibility with older games such as Aliens Vs Predator 2.


It has been identified however that there should be no issues on a newer operating system and we are therefore going forward with the upgrade. The server may be offline for a day or 2 depending on our availability and while we set things back up. This will cause the following servers to be offline:


- All Aliens Vs Predator 2 Servers


- AvP 2010 Deathmatch, DLC TDM, Domination, and Predator Hunt Servers


- Left 4 Dead 2 Server


- 1x Minecraft Server


- 1x ARK: Survival Evolved Server

New Server - January 2016

Posted on January 5, 2016 at 8:25 AM Comments comments (0)

[DBH] will be launching it's latest server in January 2016 which will replace the current "Server 1". The new server will be based in France, and will be the most powerful [DBH] server to date.


Although the current server, based in Germany, is able to run any game-server we have installed on to it, we will be expanding our server range in 2016 to accommodate more games, and to do this further specs are required. We hope all members and indeed the public will have lots of fun on this server and look forward to seeing you.


- Happy Gaming :)

Server Restructuring - September 2015

Posted on September 7, 2015 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

As of this month (September 2015) we will be restrcturing our servers. Currently we have 3 dedicated hosts, 2 high bandwidth, and 1 low bandwidth which is used for legacy games and other basic servers. Due to recent upgrades, we will be shutting down one of our high bandwidth hosts and combining it's gaming servers in to our other 2 hosts.


After reviewing our servers and their popularity, we will be splitting the most popular and least popular servers apart to ensure the best experience based on the player base. The most popular servers will be on the high bandwidth host and the least popular servers will be on the low bandwidth host. The servers should be hosted as follows:


Server 1 - High Bandwidth: 


Alien Swarm Servers


AvP 2010 - Extinction Agenda


AvP 2010 - Mixed Species TDM


AvP 2010 - Alien Infestation


ARK: Survival Evolved


Killing Floor Servers


Killing Floor 2 Servers


Serious Sam 3 Server


Teamspeak 3 Server


Unreal Tournament 3 Server




Server 2 - Low Bandwidth:


AvP 2010 Domination


AvP 2010 DLC Mixed Species TDM


AvP 2010 Predator Hunt


Call Of Duty MW3




Left 4 Dead 2


Aliens Vs Predator 2 Servers




After this restructuring is finished, some servers may be added and others shut down. This will be posted accordingly.

Closure of existing Server 2

Posted on June 3, 2015 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (0)

As mentioned on the most recent Server maintenance topic, Server 2 has had some issues for the past week which has resulted in poor gaming performance on all servers on this host. The issue is caused by a conflicting business application which is necessary to run on this specific host, and as a result we can no longer host our gamers servers on it. Therefore, the existing Server 2 will be shut down and replaced with an alternate suitable host.

Upon reviewing our servers, I've found it necessary to reduce network capacity and thus save on costs. We will therefore be removing the following gaming servers from the network indefinitely:

Natural Selection 2

Unreal Tournament 3

2x Alien Swarm Servers

These servers are seldom visited, and servers like NS2 / swarm can consume high resources. These servers will be replaced with lower demanding and more popular games such as Killing Floor 2, Left 4 Dead and Counter Strike.

We apologise for an inconvenience and will get the new host up and running as soon as possible.

[DBH] Left 4 Dead 2 Test Server

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

After 2 years we have decided to host our Left 4 Dead 2 Server again. We originally were forced to close it down due to issues with the program files, but now it seems everything appears to be working without issue, and we are confident we can host for the game again. If any players can connect to this server and provide any feedback this would be very much appreciated. :)
