When you have created a host, it is not immediately started. This allows you to first configure it before it goes live and that's also convenient for on-demand hosts, because you will not be charged until you actually start the host.
You can configure every option of the dedicated host software, either through the web interface, or in-game, so you are in full control over the host.
You can also ban IP addresses and ranges from your host, through the web interface.
Another often used option is the InSim interface. InSim is always enabled on your host, but by default nobody is allowed to connect to it. You must manually configure which IP addresses and ranges are allowed to connect.
REPLAYS AND LOGS
We keep track of all your host's replays and logs and make them available for you to download and view respectively. They will be kept until you either delete your host from our system entirely, or until your host will be purged after 30 days of inactivity (while being switched off).
Your hosts will run on our own servers in Europe, America and Asia. They are connected to the global high performance network of i3D.net (AS49544).
