As you may know, it isn't free for hosts to give you a server. You shouldn't go straight out asking for 12gb with no reputation and being such young, while not showing any maturity or professionalism in your post. I understand you are quite young, that is okay, but it doesn't look good to some hosts, no I'm not saying lie about your age. Show your maturity by putting effort into your post and making it well presented, meaning don't use internet language, spell full words and use proper grammar.
Is this a joke? No hosts are going to apply to host you, or beg to host you. If you already had a big, or "the biggest server in the world", then maybe that would be the case, but it isn't. A sponsorship is a business deal. Also, 5% of $30k is $1.5k, not $5k.
Making "the biggest server in the world" doesn't happen overnight.
I wish you good luck, because you will need it, a lot of it.
There are a lot of people out their have present more structured ideas (compared to your "we're going to make the best server in the world") that are very happy to walk away with a 2 GB server for a weeks use; plus, they offer 50-80% of all donations. Honestly; your age and presentation play a big part in what you do. Whether just or not, it's just the way it is.
With your presentation, I advise you cease to attempt getting a sponsorship and home-host. Maybe out of extreme luck someone then will offer you something.
As far as you getting 15 offers, I'm calling your bluff.
I wish you good luck, because you will need it, a lot of it.
(I would go into more detail, but I'm going to guess you wouldn't bother reading it all)
This type of thing doesn't happen over night. Hosting companies would most likely only host for free if you had a really good server idea. You would need to post more information. Why would people want to join your server over other popular servers? What ranks are you planning on having? Etc. I would recommend offering more than 5% of donations. I would say at least 60%. Most server owners are lucky if they don't loose money from hosting.
i and my friends is making the biggest server in tbhe world and we are reeally motivatewd because we are doing this to be the best and mainly to get donationas
we are currently around 8-10 yearss old and we cannot pay for something because we are not working in factories
we will give you big 5% of donations on our server once we sky rocket
of course coz we are going big we dont want no stupid offers like 500mb or 3g.
we need a server of atleast 12g no game players no time wasters
once we become big u will be happy that ur company will be the hoster
after we make bank we will pay the monthly fee and stop giving u the 5% but u will get the monthly
please post below and if we accept you we wwill pm you
btw we will find a pre made spawn on planetminencraft to use as our server spawn so we will look really big
and like we said we are giveing 5% of donations. so if we make 30 grand u get like 5 grand
All I can say is good luck to you sir, If you would like to get more repose from some Hosting Providers I would suggest making the offer you are proposing like a business offer and making sure you use the right grammar.
It is good to hear that you have a goal to be one of the largest servers, although there is no place on your post where you mention what you are going to do or how you are going to do it. Just like talking to a investor you will need to elaborate on you plan to get there, and what game-type you are making with your server. Again I wish you the best of luck, and I hope to see your server up soon!
I honostly CAN'T tell if your joking or not. For one lying will not get you anywhere. You did not get 15 offers and probably NEVER will with that attitude. Be more professional sometimes and think about it before you post.
also stop hating plz i got like 15 offers already today and i declined all!!
I wasn't going to respond, but I really must...
"not my fault I slept through 4th grade math and can't do simple arithmetic...not my fault I slept through 3rd grade grammar and can't spell or write...not my fault...not my fault...not my fault...."
Unfortunately it is your fault or rather your responsibility to learn correctly. Pen and paper were around before calculators and computers, fingers and toes will work if all else fails...listening to others speak properly is a good way to learn unless the one's speaking failed grammar also.
Learning how to create a server on 1/2 a gig or a gig is where you start, instead of demanding a $60.00 server right off the bat. However in your case, concentrating on your school work is the best thing for you. It isn't glamorous and fun sometimes, but it will get you that server quicker and easier in the long run.
Company Name: No
Want to: No
You must understand something. Although 12 doesn't seem alot, 12GB is way more than alot. 12GB is the same as 12582912KB, which then would refer to "A lot". And if you don't think 12582912KB is a lot, I'd like to see your pocket money. A 12GB server would cost around $60-100 at most hosts, maybe more, and they wouldn't give it out to anyone random. You seem to not know anything about servers AT ALL. You at the very least doesn't show that you do. The 15 offers you have gotten, were they from your friends? I couldn't even believe you in that. At their age, I wouldn't even see they having a computer with 12GB. Rather around 2GB. Or less. And how will you make those "30 grand"?. 30 grand, so $30000 is more than most hosting companies earn, I will guess. I don't see why a 8 year old should Your mom or dad probably don't earn that.
I don't want to wish you luck. Even though your 8 years old and ambitious, you're going extreme. Getting money requires money, if you see.
You say that your server's going to be the "next big thing", correct? If so, is there something that makes it special? Not too many hosts are going to be very keen on sponsoring a server that has the exact same premise as hundreds, even thousands, of other servers out there. The servers market (if you know what I mean) is getting too saturated, and it's going to take a completely revolutionary new idea to get up there with the best of the best.
Also, I know it's fun and even semi-logical to say that you're going to get 30-grand in donations, but how will you do it? This goes back to the classic Aesop parable about belling the cat. You seem to have a good goal in mind - and that's great - but how will you achieve that goal? What ranks/perks will you be offering to justify the amount of money that people will be donating to the server? If you're not sure, or if the perks are mostly "You will get to support an awesome server to its rise to glory", I suggest you rethink your plan. If you're not willing to do that, then maybe Minecraft server sponsorships aren't the thing for you.
This made my day, thank you Lemonstudioz. I can't tell whether or not you're trolling - just Googling your username came up some stuff that suggests you might serious (a scary thought!) - but, all the same, thank you.
