This is not particularly a hosting *company,* rather it is a very small group of individuals who own very high quality server and networking equipment. We can guarantee the lowest possible prices as well as your satisfaction. Our rates are standard, and there are no official plans -- we charge per GB of RAM.
There are two guaranteed numbers we have, meaning they'll never increase. There is the initial setup cost which, including an admin panel, is $2; this will include the setup of all services such as FTP, domain registration (included), the server itself, etc, and it is a one time fee (if you want a refund, we guarantee 50% of this fee back, the other 50% is kept for the time spent). The other guaranteed number is $3/GB of RAM; this is considered to be the lowest on the market as of now.
Players You might be curious about the amount of players you'll be allowed to have because surely that influences costs.. right? Nope. You will be given 10 players per GB. So, if you pay for one GB/month, you would be given 10 player slots.
Support Upon payment of the setup fee, you'll be given all the contact info you could possibly want to contact me. The best way to reach me is text, and I will be able to reply ANY time of day unless I'm asleep (if you manage to wake me up I'll help you out). Since I'm in charge of support, I personally promise not to let you down. Also on the topic of support, should you choose to migrate hosts--maybe we didn't meet your needs--we will help you out as much as we can to get you transferred as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Note that this is only valid for the first month. You have 30 days to request money back. You will receive a full refund for the first month's payment excluding 50% of the setup cost ($1).
Details & Perks We're trying to offer everything we can to match other hosts benefits while keeping our prices the same. We will keep this list updated; here's what we currently offer:
Low ping to Americas (avg 20-45ms); ping to UK/EU hangs around 100ms
SSD Storage with Google Drive mirror
Full FTP Access
No limits on Bandwidth
USTZ Support 16/7, and I'll personally give you my number which you can text any time of the day
We are considering adding guaranteed DDoS protection, but we might make this a couple of $ extra/month due to the costs.
UPDATES 10/17: Setup fee reduced to $2, admin panel is now INCLUDED in purchase. 20% off deal until 10/18 2400 UTC
If you are just wanting a few customers then ask your friends if they would like it. And the domain should cost around 15$/year and the ftp crap is automatically setup by multicraft and whmcs if you have those programs.
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
(Might be immature or stupid at points, but when I am working I am very professional)
I've worked with Minecraft servers for a very long time, but I was considering time doing stuff that the server owner should be doing; that being said, the server will be completely setup for the owner WITH a domain, and the setup fee is only $2. It includes your OWN domain however you want it.
Today only, I will offer 20% off. This will last til October 18, 24:00 UTC, 8PM US East, 7PM US Central, etc.
That means the following:
2GB Server - $4.80 for the first month, ($8 thereafter)
4GB Server - $9.60 for the first month, ($12 thereafter)
8GB Server - $19.20 for the first month, ($24 thereafter)
16GB Server - $38.4 for the first month, ($48 thereafter)
These are more or less personal deals. I'm already running servers for local friends. I will have a website up soon, but I would like to know people who pay me by talking to them to some degree; I intend to help them on a personal level as opposed to larger hosting companies.
I am offering TWO (2) 1GB vouch servers for one (1) month. This is FREE, but you must post on the forums regarding my service. This does not include a website. They INCLUDE a Multicraft Admin Panel.
A bit too ambitious? No website = no customers. A website tells everything about a company. The staff, the location, contact info, ect.
What type of servers are they, where are they located? Contact info should be given off the bat, not only when asked for.
You are missing a lot of stuff. Due to no website and the only kind of support you mention more than a couple times is via text I'm guessing you do not have your license with WHMCS or Multicraft (Or any other programs that offer customer ease of access) and that the servers are, well, questionable.
Last thing I want to add. No DDoS protection? You CAN NOT run any kind of internet based services without that. As soon as they start to attack your servers then you are done for. You need that.
