Hi, me and my friends were thinking about renting a server, we recently tried servercraft.co but it was very laggy since it is based in the USA, we were wondering if anyone could tell us which is the best UK server host at the moment.

Thanks! :P

P.S. Would 600MB of Memory be good enough for 8 Players Maximum?

Not sure of UK hosts, as I avoid them, because of VAT.

Although 600 mb is NOT enough at all for 8 players. Unless you like lag and crashing that is.

I use them for Minecraft.  Their support is amazing(responses within an hour or so and ALWAYS helpful and willing to go that extra mile.)  I have a 10 slot MC server and a 30 slot Vent for 11.99(was a deal for 50% off life of server).

Hope that helps.  And FWIW, ive used them, gameservers, artofwar, and some other provider i can remmeber ATM...and c-s.com was and continues to be the best host i have found.

They have EU locations it appears.  Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and London.

I'd say around 1 gig would be good. No less than 1 gig though.

600mb is fine for a 8 slot server, particularly if you're with a host who uses SSDs such as us (Multiplaygameservers.com)

We're currently doing 25% off for 3 months or more prepay, so an 8 slot server hosted in London for 3 months would be £18 with 8 slots of Mumble. Check out our stickied post at the top if you want to know more!

Obviously we're going to say we're the best, and who wouldn't but as the worlds largest Minecraft host we're clearly doing something right.

So what differenciates a Multiplay server from others:-
1. Our servers all use of SSD's for world storage which minimises lag providing a significantly smoother server than those that use traditional Disks for world storage.
2. We have unsurpassed knowledge and experience at hosting Minecraft which means we if there's an issue we ideally placed to help you with it.
3. Support, unlike a VPS we support you all the way with your server as we understand its not a simple game to get to grips with.
4. Multiple mod support, currently we support Vanila, hMod and now Bukkit so your server can work the way you want it to all through our state of the art control  panel Clanforge.
5. We're not just a host we're a developer, including having a member on the core Bukkit team so we have the capability to update quicker than any host out there when Notch releases an update.

To answer your question about 600MB, many will tell your its simply not enough and I'm afraid their are wrong. If you are inexperienced then yes its hard to do, but with the right setup 600MB is enough to support an ultra smooth server even up to 24 players.

If your interested in more about this check out our thread here which goes into more detail about memory requirements:

Hope this help, if you have any questions about our hosting please feel free to visit our forums http://support.multiplay.co.uk
