Upcoming update & New blog system

Dear Minecraft visitor

ServerPact is working very hard on the next version of our Minecraft Server List. We have made a blogpost on Medium.com with an exclusive preview of the new design for the vote site. With this message, we also switch our blog system to the ServerPact Medium page, where we will keep you up-to-date.

New feature: Minecraft country filter

This month, we introduce a new feature on our Minecraft server list, the Minecraft Servers List by country feature. With this feature, you can filter the Minecraft servers on the country of the owner. With this feature, we will see new traffic from small countries that don’t have a vote site at this moment. We will optimize or SEO to grow in this new area.

Server owners can change their country of origin, by logging in on serverpact.com and go to their profile.

Online players graphs for Minecraft servers

ServerPact will launch a new function for all Minecraft servers on our vote site: online player graphs. ServerPact will check two times/hour how many players their are online on your server. We will generate player graphs with these data on a seperate graphs page. You can find the graphs tab at the right top of each vote page. This was a feature that was wanted by many visitors and server owners. We can also announce, that starting tomorrow, you can vote every 12 hours instead of every 24 hours before. We did a poll, and 80+% wanted to vote every 12 hours.

New advertisement options on Minecraft Server List

Dear server owner, today we can confirm that we are changing our membership options. Bronze, Silver en Gold membership will be converted to Premium and Ultimate membership. With this two new advertisement options for your Minecraft server, we hope to make the subscription options simpler. If you want to advertise on the top of all our sites, you can take Ultimate membership (= the gold Gold spots). If you want to display your banner, get more votes and have a spot in the banner rotation, you can take Premium membership. (= the old Silver plan).

Their are also some other changes. With Premium membership, you advertised server will get +500 votes every first day of the month. With Ultimate membership, your server will get +1000 votes every first day of a new vote month. Thanks to this increase in additional votes, your server will be higher on our lists.

How to get Ultimate membership? Go to the Ultimate membership reservation page.

How to get Premium membership? Go to our advertisement options page.

New games on ServerPact

New games on ServerPact gaming server list.

In the next days, ServerPact will update some of its server list pages. In December 2014, we updated all Minecraft pages to our V3 style. Now we will do the same for other games. The next game pages will be updated in February 2015: Counter Strike, Team Fortress 2, Call of Duty, Battlefield, San Andreas, Cube World and Left 4 Dead. We will also add two new game pages: Terraria and Garry’s mod.

After this updated, all our server lists will be on the new V3 style. With the new games, we will extend the reach of our vote site.

 

 

 

 

ServerPact V3 Changelog

ServerPact V3 Features

The last month we have been working on the biggest update since V2 was launched. To help you get around we have made a list of features we have worked on.

Sleek server cards

1

 

 

We thought about a way to show a lot of servers in an enormous list while keeping the list neat and tidy. We came up with the idea of separate cards with each card having its own content neatly organized. We chose to make the whole card clickable (even on mobile devices!) to make voting for or reading about a server as accessible as possible.

Server information table

2

We had all information about a server in plain text in V2, we thought it was time for a change and to sort in even better.

The information table consists of:
Amount of votes, Last voter, Server status, Server Uptime, Website URL, IP and a banner on the bottom.

Quick share

Quickly share the page you’re currently viewing with our custom share widget.

Manage server cards:

4

We’ve made having several servers on ServerPact easy, accessible and beautiful at the same time with our new separate server cards for every server you have.

We even added a game indicator in the top-right corner of the card so you can even manage a network of several game servers with the same name.

Custom BBcodes!

5

We have taken the time to help you make your server description even better! You can now use one of our new tags!
It’s as simple as typing “[title] *title text* [/title]” in your description!

ServerPact Version 3 – The best Minecraft Server List in the world

v3

Today we launched our third version of ServerPact, the largest Minecraft Server List in many countries like The Netherlands and Belgium. With more than one million visitors a month, we wanted to make our site faster and better than ever before. With a fresh and superfast design, we moved our site to the next level. The site supports mobile, tables and PC connections. New Minecraft Filters and versions have been added. Also a partners page is now available. In the next weeks we will do small updates, with the feedback you sent in our BETA period. Enjoy the new faster site! Visit it on: http://www.serverpact.com

Vote site databank optimization

Percona

We have done MySQL maintenance for the second time this year. This time optimization techiques from Percona. The first results are very satisfying, up to 50% faster SQL performance for some of our vote pages on Minecraft Server List. We didn’t switched to Percona SQL Server, we are still on MySQL with MyISAM and InnoDB tables. Enjoy the faster loading times!

The new Gold spot bidding

gold

The last months we’ve noticed that Gold spots on our vote site, are unaffordable for some of the server operators to pay monthly. That’s why we propose to rent Gold spots by week.

With the purchase of one week you’ll get 600 votes for the entire month. You can order a Gold spots for a fixed price from 1 to 10 weeks. The first to buy will be the first on the list, the more people on the list, the higher the price. This also works in reverse, the less people on the reservation list, the lower the price. If you want to try, you can purchase only one week.

Visit the Gold Spots reservation page.
