Move has been completed and all systems are back online.

August 7, 2012
Servers have been delivered to our new host. No ETA when everything will be back online as we have to get the servers racked, cabled, configured and make sure nothing was damaged during transit from New York to Chicago.

August 4, 2012
Servers were picked up yesterday evening and are on their way. Scheduled delivery date is early next week. Will update this page if anything changes.

August 2, 2012
Our host as informed us our servers will be shipped to Chicago tomorrow.

July 31, 2012
We have finally gained access to our servers to prepare them for the move today. We have finished performing backups and our servers have been powered off to be shipped. In the meantime server admins can download our banlists for our most popular games (Covers up to July 23rd, 2012) in a zip file located here.

An updated version of our automated streaming setup tool is now available which contains the new profiles. You can find it here. This profile was sent to all servers before we powered them off today. For those who wish to update thier configurations or information the new profile is:

After speaking with our host of 3 years about our options (all which involves us moving to another datacenter), we have decided to move and go with another host in Chicago. We hope the servers will be shipped within the next few days. We will have more control and better options to deal with DDoS attacks there plus our operation costs will be lower.

July 26, 2012
As some are already aware PBBans is currently under multiple DDoS attacks which are targeting our web and hub servers. We are working to get them back online as soon as possible. Should you have any questions or need support, you can join our IRC at #pbbans on QuakeNet.

Network connection issues. Working to resolve them asap.


PBBans is a non-profit organization that provides a free service to players and server admins. We rely solely on donations to pay for our hosting, hardware upgrades and hardware maintenance costs.

We are in the process of moving which means increased funding will be required to cover those costs. Please donate any amount you can afford.
