    15€/year VPS for minecraft server

    YmpkerYmpker Member
    edited March 2018 in Requests

    Looking to run a small mc server for friends. Looking for the best I can get for 15€/year. I know tight budget but it's for few friends only and as long as it runs fair and I get some nice ressources it should be ok.

    Location: Europe (Germany would be best).
    RAM: 1GB+

    • I hope Minecraft runs on OpenVZ, because finding a KVM for this price will be difficult.

      Friend found some "lifetime" mcserver deal with German Zap Hosting @Falzo but dunno if it's worth it tbh (100€ one time). They have been in Business for a long time already and 23k fb fans so not gonna die soon. It's just that I could probably prepay a decent better performing vps for about 5 years with that budget (20€/y).

      "Zap Hosting" "lifetime"

      "(2) If a Buyserver is neither used, started nor selected in the webinterface by the customer for 6 months, Zap-Hosting holds the right to terminate the contract without notice and delete all product related data."

      20 Slots 12,14EUR per month vs 20 Slots 100EUR one time

      They are sane enough, to knew that at least 50% of the servers go out before the 6 month, so its PROFIT TIME BOOOYS.

      Lol :P Nice one^^ I was like "well atleast if it's a server dedicated to hosting mc they won't suspend for unfair usage or whatever like they could with a lifetime vps" . But anyway I guess one can just leave the server running 24/7 where's the problem if it's a one time fee anyway? Then it is being used.

      Word around town is electricity and bandwidth always cost money. Parts and stuff too.

      Word around town is that lifetime business models have about a 100% of failing in the near future.

      Minecraft is not your average gameserver. It's one of the most resource hungry pieces of shit you will ever witness. It's been designed by a guy with a extremly successful idea but little technical talent and even like 10 years and millions of dolars in profit later it hasn't recovered from that. Seriously a lot of it's faults are covered by basic game programming FAQs designed for complete newbies but they never got fixed.

      If you could make do with a NAT VPS, @cam can help you at $16USD/yr!

      Otherwise if you could give up a few extra dimes over your budget, Virmach has a $19/yr plan with 1GB which has a location in Amsterdam. There's also stuff in the offers section if that doesn't fit you.

      Due to CPU constraints I would only be able to do this in Bulgaria. (I normally don't allow game servers)

      Edit: I can do Philly too.

      It's bad, but not that bad. I've run MC servers off of 512MB of ram before (and I still am actually). People edit thousands of blocks at a time on my servers without any difficulties (well, to be fair, you do need to install a Bukkit plugin like FAWE to prevent WorldEdit from crashing on edits of that scale).

      Oh, wasn't aware that you don't allow cpu intensive applications on the server, just said to not always use the full core all the time. Hmm... can't think of anymore providers that I like, Cam's the one that came to mind first.

      Well, what did you expect from a spinning disk (which can only read/write a few hundred operations/sec at best compared to a SSD that can push at least 100x more IOPS)?

      NVMe drives can push even more, but pffft... having SATA SSDs are good enough on my VPSes :)

    • FHRFHR Member, Provider

      Minecraft is single-threaded, you need a single powerful core, else it will run pretty poorly. Don't even think about Scaleway, those Intel Atoms have terrible single-thread performance.

      I would recommend a shared hosting instead, BisectHosting has a 512MB package for ~17.5€/year. They also had a 50% off recurring promotion, but it expired two weeks ago.

      Or he could use a cheaper, aswell as better shared host and get 1GB ram for $14.40 a year @ https://aquatis.host/

      Lifetime plans are a gamble, sure. It's about evaluating how long the product/host will stay around until it the deal is shut down. While ZAP isn't known to be the best in the market they still have been around long enough to say, that judging by my experience following the German Gameserver market, they may just continue to be around long enough to make up for the deal.

      512MB should be okay. Depends heavily on the type of game - if the players are in the same or different chunks. View-distance in server.properties is also very important.

      CPU and storage performance is far more important in this case.

      Minecraft is not your average gameserver. It's one of the most resource hungry pieces of shit you will ever witness. It's been designed by a guy with a extremly successful idea but little technical talent and even like 10 years and millions of dolars in profit later it hasn't recovered from that. Seriously a lot of it's faults are covered by basic game programming FAQs designed for complete newbies but they never got fixed.

      It's bad, but not that bad. I've run MC servers off of 512MB of ram before (and I still am actually). People edit thousands of blocks at a time on my servers without any difficulties (well, to be fair, you do need to install a Bukkit plugin like FAWE to prevent WorldEdit from crashing on edits of that scale).

      We are speaking about a minecraft server just for friends, bare vanilla mc with no plugins 3-6 players. Will 512mb in this case be sufficient?

      From my experience, it should definitely be enough.
