    I've been using bisecthosting for some time now, but I can only run 1 server per subscription, and I'd quite like vps which I can use for testing.

    I've been thinking about the KS-2 SSD (Yes, I know it isn't a VPS), and was wondering if it would run 2 simultaneous servers, with 20 slots each.
     
  2. What are you planning on testing? If you really need a small server for a few plugins you should just get a shared host to keep your costs down.
     
  3. Minespan is $1.50 per gigabyte of RAM
    I use it for my server. I really like it.
     
  4. Why not use a local server for testing?
     
  5. Maybe he needs to test with other players and his computer/internet connection isn't powerful enough to hold the amount of players he needs.

    Mainly minigame plugins I've written.

    That's exactly my problem.

    I've heard that OVH classic isn't powerful enough to really do a minecraft server. Are you sure? As I said, I need 2 servers with 20 slots each, running on one VPS/Ubercheap dedi.
     
  7. I prefer McProHosting as Server Hosting :D

    At almost $10/GB it's not exactly the best option for most.

    I have used KS/OVH for VPS's/Dedicated servers. They did the job fine.
    If you've got a bit more money to splash, I would recommend going to a cheap SYS server, mainly because they do the job well. I currently host my whole demo network on one SYS machine, and it works fine. However, that's just my personal preference and may be out of your price range.

  10. I agree with @FloThePony MineSpan.com is very cheap, never used them but if its only for testing you won't really be needing alot of the features other hosts provide.

    Thanks everyone, I'm going to get the SYS-HDD-1 and use that for everything, including my current test servers.
