Depends on what people you want to play on your server. Remember, if you pay a host in Germany people in the US - and therefore people from Canada, too - will be troubling with a rather high ping.
Find something cheap in the USA or in Canada ;)

for me if you dont mind paying a bit extra, www.selfkill.com has always been the best european hoster. Theres also http://soldatserver.net which is a bit cheaper. Enesce rents servers in europe and NA which are decent also: http://rent.enesce.com/ and theres always U13 in NA.

I've seen someone spamming IRC alot saying hes renting out servers at 50 cents a slot from a 100mbit connection from germany, i haven't tested at all: <GodlikeHost>  >>>  ONLY 50 cent per slot @ philophil09@gmx.de  <<<

Not sure if nasoldat still giving out servers but they were giving out free servers in europe and NA, I don't think you get full control over them, however probably if you make a donation they will set the server up how you wish(http://nasoldat.com)

selfkill and enesce are comparable, you have ftp access and php-panel in both, enesce is a bit cheaper and he has few features selfkill doesn't (teamspeak channel, subadmin), but you never know what will enesce pull off (see ping faking)

soldatserver.net is for private servers, you get 32 slot (cant choose amount of slots) server for a ridiculously low price, however you dont have ftp access or php-panel, so its a real pain in the ass if you're thinking about uploading new scripts or maps from time to time

as for contact, it was easiest contacting guys from soldatserver.net, you just come to their channel and fubister is usually there. You can't really contact enesce live (live chat) because even if he's online he probably won't be bothered to talk with you, he is using a ticket system which i really hate because i like the live conversation, but he usually responds pretty quick. Selfkill is using ticket system too, but i think i never used it, i was always trying to reach them on their irc channel but they rarely were online, they are pretty cool guys though ;)

If you're looking for an NA host, U13 has always been pretty stable and reliable for me.

U13 provides excellent ping and reliability all throughout the USA and a really awesome panel (which ElephantHunter and I wrote completely from scratch) that has built in public stats (open source python), autogenerates map packs, tickets, PM's, and a lot of other cool things.

Panel url: http://rentals.u13.net/
Stats example: http://rentals.u13.net/?action=PieStats;sid=8

jrgp has done a lot of great work on the panel that U13 rentals uses and is always open (and constantly working) to add/ing more features as customers request them.

I'd be more than happy to provide more information as needed.  The basics are that servers are $1/public slot, $0.50/private slot, and a few bots included.  There's a small fee for extra bots due to the CPU and other resources consumed by them.

Please post here, PM me, or e-mail rentals@u13.net if you want any more information.

I'd suggest zabijaka.pl but it doesn't support english I'm running 8 public servers hosted by it and I'm fully satisfied. Locations: Germany(Gunzenhausen), Poland(Warsaw, Kraków)

Im chill like that

I support adding scripts through our in-panel script manager/editor, or via FTP.
