    Hi !

    I'm currently the admin of a big server and I need about 100 - 150 slots whitout any lag. I have big plugins and mod of my creations (with modloader MP and minecraft forge).
    Currently I am on this server so I'm paying about 400~450€ per month !
    I'm using Debian with java 6 but many people explain I am paying toooooo much money !
    So ! First of all, one of the biggest minecraft is renting here : and we explain to me it's better than OVH. So, when I'm buying a server, how to estimate the number of slots ? How to choose well to spend the minimum of money ? Any advice ? Any offers to recommend on For 100 slots, wich one would you take ?

    Thanks a lot

    100 slots? Try their EX-4.

    Hetzer has a better quality network, better hardware, better pricing, etc.

    Of course, there's plenty of other providers out there, but I've seen quite a few people who are satisfied with Hetzner.

    I assume you want EU hosts only?

    Honestly, I think the best choice if you want a cheap EU host is a EX-4 with a 1gbps line and 1-2 SSDs. However, don't expect past 150 slots on that.

    The server you have now is actually extremely impressive, the only thing is that the core speed is a little low.

    Thanks for the response. I'm asking a question since the beginning. Actually i'm paying an enormous server (with lag for now !) and you are explaining the ex 4 (I will take the EX-5 to be sure) will be ok for 100 slots ! SO what's the difference ? What to look when I'm choising ? Thanks !
