Updated Template & ISO Offerings for VPS Products

U

Christmas has been and gone so we hope you all had a wonderful time, whether it was spent with friends and/or family, or even by yourself! Now with New Years festivities coming up fast and even more celebrations at hand, you should make sure to be on the lookout for any great deals at GekkoFyre Networks. We should be offering some sizable bargains around that time provided our Gaming Services are ready to launch by then.

Speaking of now though, we’ve performed major updates to the templates and ISOs that are on offer with our virtual private servers and the following are henceforth available for installation onto your server:

Templates

  • CentOS 7.5
  • Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu Server 18.04.1 LTS
  • Debian 9.5
  • Fedora Server 29
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016

ISOs

  • Scientific Linux 7.6
  • Anarchy Linux 1.01
  • ClearOS 7
  • Zabbix 4.0 Appliance

All offerings are of the x86_64 architecture and there is further reading provided on how to install these for your VPS, with particular instructions regarding the ISOs. If you are encountering any difficulties then please, feel free to open a support ticket with one of our techs and we’ll get to you as soon as is feasible.

Upgrading our Game Servers; new XenoPanel offerings coming soon

U

For the next week or so, GekkoFyre Networks will be temporarily suspending its Game Server offerings until we are able to provide a better and more streamlined control panel experience for both new and pre-existing clients. We are teaming up with XenoPanel which, alongside with our already pre-existing Pterodactyl.io offerings, will bring you more game-related server offerings than ever before! This includes servers for such games as:

XenoPanel comes with many features that allow you or a small-to-medium organization/clan to manage anywhere from a single to multiple servers all under the one account. This includes:

  • Powerful per-client API controls
  • Robust file manager
  • FTP access
  • DNS & MySQL manager
  • Support for sub-domains under your own second-level domain or one provided by us at GekkoFyre Networks
  • Sub-user management for your organization and/or clan
  • FastDL support integrated with Steam
  • Mod Manager / Install System built exclusively for Steam-based games
  • Console & Commands
  • Two-factor authentication for each (sub-)user
  • Regularly made backups as automatically undertaken by us at GekkoFyre Networks
  • Node & Server Monitoring plus Statistics
  • Player management through the control-panel itself
  • And so much more!

Pterodactyl.io shares many of the same features as mentioned above also. You can expect all this to arrive near to the date of 25th December, 2018, which is right near Christmas time! It’s our gift to all of you within the furry, otherkin and therian communities in order to celebrate Christmas so that you may have a rockin’ time throughout your holidays!

We may also be changing payment gateway providers soon with regards to Stripe, and making the switch to eWay. Although we offer servers and products in locations found across the globe (whilst accepting payments in USD) and our client-base consists almost entirely of international users, we are a business that is legally registered in Australia with the ABN #76382 705 985. Because of this, we find that partnering with eWay as a preferred payment gateway provider will be easier to do business with over Stripe since they too are headquartered in Australia. That said, we will still be offering PayPal as a payment option as well.

Lastly, we need to mention that we have a public TeamSpeak 3 server that is free-to-use by anyone, worldwide. It simply operates under the GekkoFyre Networks banner and is a simple source of advertising for us but otherwise, the server has an effectively unlimited number of user slots and there is a channel for each type of game server we (will) have on offer. The server can be accessed at the following URL below:

teamspeak.london.gekkofyre.io:9987
