What is the most cost efficient way to manage infrastructure for the increasingly popular Free-to-play model?
Free to Play, often abbreviated to F2P, means you can play a game without paying a dime for it. Sounds great doesn’t it? Some industry experts say that F2P might be the first step towards a totally new gaming market. Until then, some games start out as a Pay to Play version (like DC Universe Online, Age of Conan or League of Legends), who later switch to F2P. Other games are designed with F2P in mind, like the recently released Tribes: Ascend. The F2P model is one that truly provides a win-win outcome for gaming companies and players alike.

We have been segmenting our customer base for quite a while now. Why? Well, with over 15,000 customers and a growth rate of 45% year over year, we wanted to create a system that helps us continuously learn about market demands and our customer’s business priorities. There are many reasons why this is important to us, but let me try to formulate a few of them:
LeaseWeb Germany Post-Merger Integration Survey – Using customer feedback to further improve our hosting services
About a year ago we acquired the German hosting company Netdirekt, and with the anniversary approaching we decided to check-in with our German customers to get their feedback on our services. One of the most important things LeaseWeb tries to achieve is fostering relationships with our clients. By listening to them, we can better understand their needs. That’s why we recently conducted our German customer satisfaction survey.
We are always on the lookout for new opportunities to share information about LeaseWeb, hosting and dedicated server news, customers and our products. The LeaseWeb YouTube channel was selected by us to be the latest medium to enable us to further engage with our customers and our followers. It is a great point of reference for the most recent technical and customer information we have to offer, and the feed even includes video bloopers!
Setting up hosting services in ‘foreign’ territory isn’t something that you can set up in a day, not even if you’re already an international hosting provider. Step-by-step you build up your business, paying attention to your customers’ demands and evolving your proposition accordingly. At LeaseWeb, this process became a large ‘behind the scenes’ project we dubbed GUS2CAS. We are very happy to announce that last week, we successfully deployed the first phase of this project. We’ve added important new features to our website based on customer feedback and improved the back end of our ordering system. Read on to learn what has been changed.
You may have read in our previous blog post that we were due to launch the new OCOM recruitment website. Well, our web design team has made the final touches, the HR department has populated the vacancy listings, and we are delighted to announce that the new website is now live from our own web hosting servers! Please visit http://www.ocomcareers.com and don’t forget to add us to your favorites!
LeaseWeb started life at humble beginnings, with one server and two enthusiastic founders in Utrecht, the Netherlands. We are now really proud that, since our inception 14 years ago, we have grown into a quality hosting provider for customers in 177 countries worldwide.
Finding a quality hosting provider can be harder than it seems despite the development of the industry and a huge choice of suppliers. Setting up a quality internet infrastructure, be it dedicated servers or cloud services may have become everyday business, but choosing a provider should definitely not be left to chance. LeaseWeb has put together a list of key questions that should definitely be asked to ensure the right choice is made.
