    About Us

    MinecraftLayer was founded in 2011 by the original and current owners of NickHost.net (est. 2006) and VPSInfinity.com (est. 2011). MinecraftLayer (also known as MCLayer) is run by experienced hosts who love Minecraft! Every client matters to us, which is why we put so much effort into our customer service. Minecraft hosts are popping up everywhere, but two things set MCLayer apart: our great prices and our excellent customer service. We strive to make each client feel like a VIP because we know that's the best way to run a business.

    All of our nodes run on Xeon Quad Core CPUs (with HT and Turbo), SSDs, and DDR3 RAM. Our top quality hardware keeps lag down and client satisfaction up.

    We currently host servers in the following locations:
    - Atlanta, GA
    - Phoenix, AZ
    - New York, NY
    - Chicago, IL
    - Dallas, TX


    =====================================

    • FTP Access (full root SSH/SFTP for VPSs)
    • McMyAdmin (and SolusVM) or Multicraft control panel
    • Optional free MySQL database
    • INSTANT Setup!

    Quote from joelestral »
    "I have owned 4 dedicated servers and have spoken to 17 different companies about hosting. This is the friendliest, clearest, and best customer support I have had."

    Quote from Brandon B. »
    We've only been with you for a few days, but I can say already you're an awesome host...way better than what we've seen out there.

    Quote from Michael M. »
    Just set up a server with @MinecraftLayer about a week ago. Best customer support out [there]. Extremely reliable host. Do recommend!

    Quote from Josh B. »
    Thanks so much this company is a full 5/5 stars for customer support. I can't thank you enough for your help.

    Quote from @Intecpsp »
    I'd like to do a quick shout out to @MinecraftLayer! They are an amazing Minecraft server host with THE best customer service I've seen!

    Quote from Ioevnionv »
    Thank you for hosting my server!! Best service ever!!! Best hoster as well!!!

    Quote from AnthonyJB88 »
    This is probably the best provider I've come across when it comes to quality. They are amazing! My server has never had downtime, and I have full control over how it functions. When I was considering buying their service I had a couple of questions, so I went into their live chat - an owner, Nick, not only answered my questions much better than expected, he also talked to me for over an hour about many things Minecraft and tech related!

    The price is just a bit on the mid-high side, but it is worth every penny. The support, uptime, service, communication, and friendliness is worth double what they charge. The service is absolutely amazing, and they honestly leave everyone else in the dust. A+

    Quote from The Wiseman »
    MCLayer is by far the best Minecraft Host I have ever run into. The support is incredible and the servers are stable and very easy to manage thanks to McMyAdmin. Not much else to say. Awesome host all around, especially the support.

    Quote from Anthony45654 »
    MinecraftLayer is the undoubtedly best Minecraft server host I have ever seen. I have rented server from 5 different server hosts but once I saw what MCLayer offered and their price, I just had to switch. Don't get me wrong, the other server hosts were good, but MCLayer is beyond good, they are AMAZING.

    Quote from Legolas75893 »
    I've only had good come from this host! The support is absolutely amazing! Really quick to reply, and the nicest I've ever seen. What I love the most is that the staff actually get to know you. It's not like most companies where it's just a "you pay me, I give you server" relationship.

    I've never had ANY downtime issues with these guys that WASN'T our fault! Never had a single ounce of lag. As many other people said, you get many features for FREE practically, whereas normally you'd pay 15$ for them! MCMyAdmin, SSH, FTP, the list goes on and on!

    All in all, I can't love these guys enough. I HIGHLY recommend them to ANYONE who's looking for a good server host.

    Quote from Chekkaa »

    When I left my previous host because the CPUs weren't fast enough, I was worried that I wasn't going to find another host with the same level of customer service. It turns out that I got lucky and found a place with even BETTER customer service. Great servers, great price, great support. I've only been with them for a month, but I am already more than impressed enough to write a good review. I've looked at and used lots of other hosts before, but no other hoster was able to provide me with such great hardware at such a great deal--a 6GB VPS with 3 cores of a Xeon E3-1230. I am definitely a happy customer.

    Quote from Vladimir_Marenus »

    I can't even begin to describe the level of help, professionalism, and downright friendliness I have experienced in my time with MCLayer.

    [...]

    I suppose the best way I can sum up that whole, surreal experience is that I felt like I was troubleshooting with one of my Admins, a person who cares about the server and its success just as much as I do, rather than a tech who was trying to close a ticket quickly so they could make a quota. Saying that they "care" about my server is a tad clich?, but it honest-to-goodness felt that way when they were helping me. I went from starting to regret spending money on a server to feeling like everything was okay!

    [...]

    I truly, truly cannot recommend them highly enough. If you have any questions or concerns and for some reason don't want to talk to the Owner (which is silly, because on top of everything else, both he and his techs are very personable), please feel free to contact me here.

    Honestly, I don't know if I have an affiliate link or anything, but even if I did, I wouldn't post it- My motives for posting here aren't driven by things like that- It's just SO RARE to find a company who treats you like their only customer these days... and MCLayer is one of the few left- they should be treasured and applauded, even if you don't use them! They deserve it!

    Quote from Josh Swift »
    It will be good to have a service that's reliable. I really can't begin to describe how far ahead your company is from the rest. I feel proud to be a client.

    Now that Bukkit has finally released a stable build for 1.8.1, we are going to be installing McMyAdmin on everyone's server within the next few days. As part of this process, we will be removing our in-house control panel. If you would like to make the switch quickly, you can open a support ticket in the Client Area. If you are just using SSH/SFTP to manage your server, we will not add MCMA unless you request it.

    Hi all!

    Just wanted to introduce myself, I'm TJ!. You'll find me located as "Thomas B." on MCLayer.com as a co-founder with Nick.

    A little bit about myself, I currently am running another VPS hosting company, VPSInfinity, so I have a lot of experience in the industry. I do a lot of the fun technical stuff that no one else wants - but you'll see me on the front end of customer support as well!

    I always believe that a businesses #1 priority should be customer support, because without you - we're nothing! If you have any questions, concerns, comments, harassments, requests, insults, whatever - let me know and I'll be happy to address them!

    I'm currently finishing up a bit of coding on our templates as we have just finished migrating over to MCMyAdmin so we should have instant setup available tomorrow! We'll also be setting up our FTP backup server to make sure all of your data is safe! Keep an eye out - we may be running an extra promotion once all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed!

    Hello, I am trying to purchase a 4GB VPS from you with the 70% off code for the first month. Unfortunately, when I go to check out, I apply the code, it says the code doesn't apply to the items in my cart, which is a 4GB VPS. Are there certain restrictions?
