Hosting for a friends server

Discussion in 'Hosting Advice' started by Haruka, May 18, 2015.

  1. Hello, I am looking for a server in europe that can accomodate 10 or so friends with room for mods and big worlds.

    I was looking at cheap VPS and found this one:https://contabo.com/?show=vps

    We want to be able to play at anytime of the day. The 1st one looks cheap and would cost 1€ per person. We will most likely only run 1 server at a time,but maybe switch jars at any time to loas different worlds and mods.


    Is there any better and cheap hosts?
     
  2. If you are just with your friends get a shared host, it's way cheaper.
     
  3. Could you give me any advice in hosters then?
     
  4. I had a VPS there, and still have a Domain there. The only thing why I don't have a VPS there anymore is that they don't have DDoS Protection and that was not good for my Network, but they are reliable and very good! I would recommend them if you just want it for yourself and your friends!

  5. OVH Vps's are super laggy.
    Most of the time your with resource hogs. I bought a vps for one server used the entire RAM and all the stuff i can on the server.. super fricken laggy.

  6. Ovh prices versus contabo prices is like wow.

    Its just for me and my friends, no big network for now, i also have a sys server for now which is a beast,but a vps is much cheaper if just for friends.

    So is contabo any good? I have had an vps there before and had no complains. Im just worried about specs since we plan to run some mods and big worlds
     
  7. Hmm I Dont have had any problems yet

  9. Then your lucky your not with resource hogs.
     
  10. Sure! We can even share skype or somrthing!
     
  11. Did you even go into considering what I told you?
     
  12. I would take a look at MineRack.org @TxS_PRIME works there very well known around spigot there cheap 6$ for 1.5 GB so 4/gb

  13. OVH VPSs are perfectly decent if you just intend to host 20-40 players.

  14. Then you are lucky. I bought a 8gb VPS from them, and only used 6gb for servers nothing else. And it was super Laggy... Server side. I have a beast computer so like its block lag and stuff...
     
  15. I agree 100%, I even still buy my own servers from Minerack.
    *not saying that b/c I work there, we're a good damn host!

    Go with shared hosting.
    I suggest SpartanHost.
     
  17. Or BuyVM.net, if your looking for a VPS/KVM. Still super *REDACTED* [sorry] good. 10/10-IGN
