Do you hate connecting to a port? By default, all TeamSpeak servers that don't run on the default port (99.999% of all servers don't run on the default port) will need to type in something like vs.tserverhq.com:1234 to connect. After purchasing, enable the Customized Server Hostname addon here: https://tserverhq.com/clients/cart.php?gid=addons We will use customized code that is backed up on geographically diverse servers to redirect your TeamSpeak server directly to your purchased server. This means that you can connect to something like yourgroup.tserverhq.com instead of vs.tserverhq.com:1234. Isn't that amazing?!
Each time your TeamSpeak 3 server connects it tries to see if there is a way to redirect without using the port. This normally uses the additional program known as TSDNS. We however saw a problem with TSDNS. If the server that TSDNS is installed on ever goes down you literally cannot connect to your server! OH NO. This means if someone is using that program they need to have 2 servers protected and you have double the amount of problems. That is the main reason why we refused to use the program for so long. TserverHQ.com however, is now using an alternate technology that is backed up on multiple geographical locations. That means that if one server goes down you can still connect to your server! That is the level of commitment we have.
This is the process of connection without using the port regardless of the method
You => Redirecting Server => Your TeamSpeak 3 server.
|This is the process of connection without using the port regardless of the method|
|You||=>||Redirecting Server||=>||Your TeamSpeak 3 server|
As far as we know all of our competitors use the above method, however we use the method below

|You||=>||Redirecting Server in location 1||=>||Your TeamSpeak 3 server|
|Redirecting Server in location 2|
|Redirecting Server in location 3|
Now, it is possible to have TSDNS installed directly on the same server that you have your TeamSpeak 3 server setup on but this leads to prolonged connection times as the DNS entries that TeamSpeak is using will continually try for that resolver until the set time that is allocated in the DNS Zone runs out in reality it could take 5-10min between retries of connecting to your server if the TeamSpeak server ever loses connection EVEN IF THE SERVER IS DOWN FOR SECONDS!!!!. This all depends on traffic and the amount of requests it must serve, but nonetheless there is that delay, and just like everyone else we hate delays.
