Hello! So my friends and I were looking for a free server to host our SMP for free cause none of us can spend any money.
Requirements for the server:
Can support 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, 1.10.
Can support over 16 players
Is Online 24/7 all night all day
No Other Host Other Than Me
I Must Get The Server By This Week
I really need to run this server myself cause I need to do some specific things to the server at specific times and a different host other than me I really can't trust due to I don't know of they're gonna give us a server and then take it away completely, or if they aren't on when we need to do something for the server.

The solution to your problem could be hosting a server on one of your computer(s) or your friend's computer(s).
Its free, you have in control what you want on it.
Another solution is actually getting a nice provider that is cheap for your needs. Just remember on what you are paying for, you do not want to get a small server with a small amount of ram. Some mods might me memory hungry than others and on top of that, you are looking for about 20 people to join one server.
-I recommend doing extensive background check in order to get what is your money's worth for a nice server.
If you are looking for a host you should browse the Minecraft Server Hosting section, using individual hosts threads as a place to ask questions about the service(s) they provide. If you need a custom package look for a host with the "custom" prefix, and if you need a sponsorship look for hosts with the "sponsor" prefix.
