What customers say

After launching another successful IP — HUNT: Showdown, a competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with heavy PvE elements, Crytek aimed to bring this amazing game for its end-users. We needed a hosting provider that can offer us high-performance servers with great network speed, latency, and 24/7 support.

doXray has been using HOSTKEY for the development and the operation of our software solutions. Our applications require the use of GPU processing power. We have been using HOSTKEY for several years and we are very satisfied with the way they operate. New requirements are setup fast and support follows up after the installation process to check if everything is as requested. Support during operations is reliable and fast.
