I am in the market for a Minecraft Server to which I may call my own. I've looked around online and I have come across a few websites that claim they will set you up with a server for a monthly fee. Now I have sent messages to two of these sites asking basic questions about two weeks ago and I have yet to receive an answer.
Are these sites scams? I read a post on here before where one member was complaining that Mynecraft or whatever the site was called took his money but never set up a server for him nor did they contact him via e-mail.
I know NOTHING about setting up .exe files on regular servers, nor do I feel like paying $50-60 a month for a true dedicated server. I only want a 10-15 slot Minecraft Server that won't lag and I can play with my friends on.
you def need to check out MYNECRAFT.COM. A friend of mine switched over to MYNECRAFT.COM and wow what a big difference. They have a live chat which you can talk tech support so you can get your issue settled quickly and painless as possible.(So far no problems but this is good to have) Setup is very fast, their service is tits, and by tits i mean in a good way,(tits are always good). they hook you up with an admin control panel thats also tits. All around Mynecraft.com is sweet tits.
tl;dr version: go to mynecraft.com for servers, they take care of you!
The Shaft podcast uses Mynecraft for their server and it runs great.
I also use Mynecraft after hearing about them on The Shaft. I bought a server and have enjoyed it. The owner is working really hard and he is continually updating the web control panel with new features.
