Hello my name is Kevin "chKaze" Haeusler and I have a proposal to sponsor your server.
I am looking to create a gaming community (name not decided) and wanted to add one if not multiple minecraft servers to it.
Since I have only a small amount of people in my community your server has to have an active community (require proof).
What I can offer:
I am currently renting a dedicated server for a couple of my IT projects (Seedbox/Website hosting/OwnCloud/Plex/Ark Server/CSS Server/random other things) and I am using far less ressources that I have available. I also have 2 Servers at home that are unused.
I will also provide a website and forum (wordpress and phpbb3, maybe another forum cms)
Dedicated Server 1 (Rented)
Intel Xeon E5 1410 v2 4C/8T @2.8Ghz
96 GB RAM
1TB SSD Raid 0 (Yolo) (~100GB Reserved for myself)
3TB Sata3 Disk (2TB Reserved for myself)
Internet bandwidth guaranteed 500Mbit/s on a Gigabit Connection BUT keep in mind that its sharing the bandwidth with my seedbox*
Traffic unmetered but I assume they will limit it after ~30TB which wont be a problem early on.
Currently only 1 dedicated IP but can buy additional (I´ll most likely get 1 IP per Game and just use different ports for each server)
Used for Websites managed via Plesk, Seedbox, Private Ark Server, Private MC Server
Dedicated Server (Owned)
Intel i7-4790 4C/8T @ 3.6Ghz
16 GB RAM (can upgrade if needed)
256GB SSD No raid
SAN 12 TB Storage Raid 5 (havent tested if this is a problem for MC servers maybe someone else knows and can comment?)
Located in Switzerland on a 50Mbit Download 5Mbit Upload connection
Running on Esxi (Vsphere)
Would probably use that just for private youtube servers located in EU.
Dedicated Server 3:
Shared Upon request since there is some private data on it.
18 (Since you will have partial access to the server ftp/ssh), If you apply as community and your current server techie is under 18 but knows what he does and is responsible (Which is difficult to judge since I was certainly not responsible at that age) I can consider it.
Server Idea + Community:
If you have a unique Idea but no community I will not consider you for this project. It can be as generic as you want as long as you have an already active community (20+ daily online players, 50+ community members). Keep in mind that I am most likely able and looking to host multiple servers.
Consider me as Head Admin and Tech Admin but you need to be able to install/update/fix Server problems for when I am not available. Your access will be limited but you will have to work with ftp and ssh on an ubuntu server and possible wordpress website.
There will most likely be a community website and maybe a website per game, I will require ingame advertisement in form of Server message and/or sign up. If you are a youtuber using one of the sponsored server you might have to do following: Shoutout to Community (not every video), link in your description (every video), maybe link in your about page.
If your community already has admin or mods they will get assigned a new role based on the same criteria. Age requirement for Moderators will be 16 instead of 18 though.
Donations / Server Cosmetics:
While I am not a fan of these you can add them to the server if they are reasonable (I dont want to see an 1K package) and do not enable pay2win (small benefits are okay). We an discuss how to handle the money, I am not dependant on donations so Id be more than okay to do something like 20% to server costs and the remaining % to the admin/mod team and new servers
