2021 is off to an interesting start!

We here at TGM (The Game Monsters), are starting 2021 with new services added to our list!

We have just launched our Clan Pay system! Contribute for your clan’s server fees easily by using PayPal (credit cards accepted). You can get your Clan Pay URL at your Client Area.

We’ve also added some new Dedicated Servers to our inventory list!
We’ve added 10 new Dedicated Servers, which are now available and is CHEAPER than any other provider!

Black Hawk Down

We have some good news for new and old customers! We have reopened our Black Hawk Down Game Servers! With a game server, you don’t have to worry about setup, or managing your own files! When you order a game server with us, you’ll be granted access to BMTv3 in order to punt, ban, etc..

Game Server vs Nova Dedicated Server

The difference between a game server and a Nova Dedicated Server depends on your experience. Most squads/clans run off of Game Servers instead of Dedicated Servers. With a Dedicated Server, you, the client, are responsible for maintaining the software and server files as well as setup. When you order a game server, we maintain the software and server files and setup.

For the casual home user; a game server is usually the way to go. More experienced users usually like dedicated servers due to the user access level they can gain vs a normal game server. Also, with game servers you’re normally only allowed Rcon access, or some sort of Remote Console access instead of physical access to the machine.

Credit Cards Now Accepted!

We are starting this year off with a great start! We are now accepting Credit Cards! If you don’t want the hassle of PayPal, you can use your credit card directly from our website! We are Level 2, PCI Complaint. We will NEVER store your credit card. Instead, we use a token system to securely process your payment.

We will continue to use PayPal as a supported Payment Gateway.

Do I have to switch?

Not at all! We will continue to use PayPal. We are offering direct credit card to use, to help simply things. Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to submit a ticket for our Billing Department. We would be happy to assist you in anyway possible!

Time to Say Goodbye to SSL Version 3.0

It is no secret that securing your client’s data is an ongoing process and not something that you can simply install on a server/platform. That is why security solutions and protocols evolve all the time and developers frequently release new versions. The two cryptographic protocols that provide communication security over the Internet are TLS and SSL. The latest version of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL version 3.0) is the predecessor of TLS and is nearly 15 years old. So it was only a matter of time for someone to find the next big issue related to the SSL protocol. Yesterday Bodo Möller from the Google Security Team wrote a blog post about a new vulnerability in the design of SSL version 3.0. The vulnerability allows attackers to calculate the plain text of secure connections. Read more
