    Beast nodes with 20$ you can start a 30 slot server and buy a enjin forum site for your server. if you have a active paypal account that can receive payments (donations) its a good choice. A Enjin account is free btw but you can pay for advanced days. (recomended) I use a Beastnode Spider and Im loving it.

    Yeah, ive heard some good things about Beastnode but the same with Avante. I wont need a forum/website for my server. Avante have a cheaper deal and offer 500MB more ram and 2 more slots (that i dont think ill need) Thanks for your suggestion.

    Yeh depends on how much activity your server gets

    Well beastnodes is good for multiple owners or admins cause you can create side accounts or "alt accounts" and limit their abilities. Idk who else can do that but I really like beastnodes but the seem to have this issue once a month where it shuts down and will not come back up for 1 to 3 hours. But other than that Ilike it.

    i have enough home ram to allow no matter whos on to run atleast 8 hours i run i7 3400 32 ram download 40 upload 24
    i pay 69.95 for my internet and like i said i paid for i t anyways

    i used this to see if i was able to run a home server
    http://canihostaminecraftserver.com/
    and i found a good home server is better the these rented ones
    just limited on upload speed at home

    i have hosted a home server I7 quad core with 16GB ram ran great it was just my internet Download 19.00 and upload 00.49 but i reckon rented server is best for me also knowing that i can play other online games without lagging due to the server

    Renting is the best way to go, depending on where you live.

    Also factor in electricity costs and cooling :'(

    I pay $10 more for a a month for a dedicated, 24/7 server. Has a 980 6 core, 24 Gb RAM, 2x SSDs, Adaptec RAID card and is on a 100/100 mbit line with 5 TB bandwidth. I know that home ISPs only allow around 250-350 GB of bandwidth per month, before they start throttling your internet or charging you more.

    So I guess it all depends..

    10 dollars more then my home service so double lets get that strait you said 10 dollars more a month that would be 80 dollars then your home internet x2 and thats what i avoid (you pay for a dedicated server and your home service)

    I only pay for home service.
    and i really like the control of the server. I dont have to depend on a second party and im happy running up to 80 players i dot need more then that

    Yeah, that is the beauty though............ I want my server separate from my home internet services.

    Do you know how easily someone could take out your whole internet from a small DoS attack? Hell I could take it out from my home internet alone. That is just one of the reasons why it is nice to have it separate. Also since I rely on my internet, I can't risk having it cutoff or throttled. Hosting any type of gameserver or servers is against 90% of home ISPs terms of service and they will cut you off or throttle your speed if they catch you.

    Oh and also redundancy. Is your home internet multi-homed and is your homes power redundant? See one power failure and your server goes down and your map may become corrupt. Also if someone crashes into your ISPs fiber box and breaks some lines, your internet goes down and your server is down too. With a server in a datacenter, these things are minimized and virtually non-existent, due to redundant backup power and multiple and redundant fiber connections.

    Give me your IP and we shall see about that 99% uptime.

    EDIT: LOL, this sounds like a threat. No I just want to confirm it on minestatus or something.

    If you read up on Minecraftforum.net they bring up a great point. Slot by slot is not the best. These servers are more expensive that the others. Don't go for those slot/slot servers.

    Learn2Linux and buy a vps. More freedom and possibly cheaper.

    I've got a good military buddy that has a hosting company called Devil Dogs Hosting, I convinced him to start providing minecraft servers. His company and staff is excellent I've never had a problem with his prices, access, or speed. He sells servers by the amount of ram and not the slot.

    1. Google "cheap vps'"
    2. Find one with the amount of ram you want cheaply that looks reputable.
    3. Google some linux commands line(bash) guides.

    you're going to regret going with a cheap cookie cutter host but if that is all you can afford then I suppose you have no choice.

    My first "cheap" host was BroHoster.....my GOD what a mistake that was.

    I now have a dedicated Box with NFOservers.com (Nuclear Fallout) They are somewhat $$ (My dedicated box + web and vent hosting is $275 per month) but their hardware / service is top notch.

    Now that's a good idea! So not slot/slot, but by RAM. That will clearly lower the costs.
