Have been renting with Jest on and off since late alpha and so far i have yet to find something to complain about, the server setup is extremely easy, you select what you want pay and bam its up, i have had issues with this before with other hosts having to wait 1-3 days for a server to come online but that is not the case here.
The first thing you will notice about this host is that is it quite expensive but for a good reason. most hosts stay cheap and at a great cost in performance this is not the case as jest only provide high tier servers and if you should come across an issue just send in a support ticket and get an answer within 30 minutes.
On our 2GB plan, you should be able to hold more players, and have overall better performance, latency, uptime than a $30 2GB package. Support is also highly rated and friendly. Pro-rated refunds are always available for any reason at any time. We're the only hosting company to offer this, as we are confident in our clients being happy. If you find a better hosting solution, we'll gladly help transfer the files server to server to save you bandwidth if desired.
RAM upgrades past 2GB become more inexpensive, and custom deals via email are always available depending on location.
For unmanaged, full root access virtualized Xen servers, jesthosting.com has a $5 special, which can be upgraded at discount. They are a seperate newer business however.
I recently asked Jest to put on the "Feed the Beast" mod for our server. It's not in the official list of supported mods, but low and behold, shortly after asking, the mod was installed.
I'm almost finished my second year with Jest, and after he "consolidated" my services into a ridiculously killer deal with tons of ram, multiple dedicated cores, and plenty of hard drive space (for a special friend price) I am reminded how good my choice of joining Jestservers was a good one.
I've seen a lot of ads for other dedicated server providers, but I couldn't imagine how any of them would offer better service than jest.
Use Promotion code 50offmc to get 50% off your first month's payment on a Vanilla Minecraft server(no craftbukkit or modded minecraft_server.jar). 1GB of RAM we've seen reach 45 players smooth, and keeps getting better it seems.
Use Promotion code 25offmcmods to get 25% off your first month's payment on a Mods Enabled Minecraft Server (Craftbukkit, modded jars, Feed The Beast, Tekkit, we haven't found a mod we don't support for this package). Includes a full cpanel web hosting account with mysql and more. 2GB of RAM can hold 60 players smooth with optimized settings(having dynmap endlessly update map would reduce this for example).
We now have support for Spigot as well, which server admins have reported 70+ players on our 2GB package, even when loaded with plugins. All Technic Packs are also available for one click install, or specific builds via request.
Our 1GB special package is available as well again, which with Spigot can run 40 players smooth, most likely more with some tweaking: https://jestservers.com/panel/cart.php?a=add&pid=164
If you have any questions, or custom quotes, please reply here or PM me.
The above promotion codes have been activated again as well.
Try us out to see how much performance is possible, if you don't like the service for any reason, we offer an always available pro-rated refund, with no fees.
The very first server I owned with Jest was 3 years ago. I was very skeptical about renting a server due to the fact I never actually had one before. I went through various websites looking for live chat or any way to ask some presales questions and I came upon jestservers.com with 4 different types of instant messaging communication, my method of choice at the time being aim.
Jest provided me with over an hour and a half of his time to answer any questions I had and had a server set up for me in less than 10 minutes after our conversation ended. He then spent time each day with me, teaching me how to even use tcadmin, or run a minecraft server. It is because of him that I am as skilled as I am with server configs and other server related skills.
His hosting quality is beyond the best you will find anywhere else. He uses only the best equipment in the best data centers and will prorate any refund to you if you are not satisfied. While the prices may be slightly more than the dime a dozen hosting sites that stack you on overloaded virtual servers, his servers are hard boxed, dedicated servers with your purchased specs isolated to your server and only your server.
If you get a 4 gig of ram server from a dime a dozen place, some of that ram will be used by the operating system and other services, jestservers dedicates all of the ram you purchase directly to your server which gives you much better quality.
I have just recently set up another server for a prison map, feel free to check it out for the quality that jestservers.com can provide you.

Heya jwpwns thanks for the feedback. What could I change to make the ordering area less complex. You are not alone with that issue =)
