Is my Game Server Online?

"Is my Game Server Online?" is a web application that enables users to verify the availability and status of various game servers in real-time as well as see detailed information about them.

This application was created by Daniel Gibbs the lead developer of LinuxGSM to address the lack of a web tool to quickly check the status of game servers. Currently, the application caters to a broad spectrum of games, extending support to game servers utilising Valve, Minecraft, Gamespy, Quake, Unreal query protocols, along with a variety of other custom query types.
