TeamSpeak 3 Basics
TeamSpeak is a C++ language (compiled) program that allows users on PC, iOS, Android, OSX, and Linux to speak to each other
in rooms created by the server owner using secure point-to-point encryption. Unlike Skype and Discord, these connections
are not decrypted at the hosting provider and vulnerable to 3rd party wireless recording and data mining.
TeamSpeak also offers file storage and transfer up to 1 Gigabyte, in order to allow users to share files with other users.
The client software is free for PC and Linux users, and a small app for iOS and Android. Users are identified by a secure
'key' stored on their machine, making impersonation of users by name or theft of password credentials to obtain privileges
impossible without access to the device or computer file system.
TeamSpeak 3 is Secure
Unlike JAVA based chat clients, other unneccesary features like file system access and keyboard logging inputs are not
included in the TeamSpeak C++ binary, protecting the customer from common exploits which may access all files on their
home computer or mobile device. Because TeamSpeak is hosted by a distributed group of resellers, no central authority
or business can be served a warrant to bypass, compromise, or modify the TeamSpeak Server Binary to facilitate features
not included in the official global release. This is part of the German Republic privacy rights from which TeamSpeak
originates, making it the most secure platform for chat online.
TeamSpeak generally sells for $0.08 to $0.50 per
concurrent user, and it is cheaper to purchase a 32 user server than rent a dedicated server with similar resources.
TeamSpeak providers operate based on support levels, and fees increase as user support levels do, in general. Few
if any providers offer telephone support. SDP does provide telephone support during regular regional business hours.
Our customer service are at the hosting facility, native English speakers, with system-level access.

What to Expect on Order
You will receive an email with the ADMIN KEY and Server Query Port Number for your server.
Place the address in the email with the full port number (:12345) into the connect box, and the
server will prompt you for your one-time-use ADMIN KEY to assume control of the server.
All features of TeamSpeak 3 server management are available via the client software. Right click
on any channel or node in the drop-down tree to administer the server, channel, or properties.
Set a password on your server to prevent strangers from accessing it arbitrarily using the port
and IP address. TeamSpeak DNS does exist to assign a domain to your server, but it is very
vulnerable to Denial of Service attack, and not recommended for professional users in head-to-head
online games. Denial of Service abuse and other attacks may affect TeamSpeak, and the best option
is to not antagonize other users / groups as Internet Service Providers (ISP) upstream will cut
access to a client regardless of the TeamSpeak 3 reseller / host operations in most cases of high
volume (paid, commercially available) DDoS services.
Uptime for other customers depends on your ability to play will with others, and repeated abuse
will result in loss of services if it impacts other customers use of the service or network.
