Hello all, I'm strongly considering buying a server from a host, but I really don't know what to start out with.
I have a couple questions:
1) How much RAM do I need for a 24-30 player server? I've seen alot of server hosts post 1GB as the 24-30 recommended player amount and wanted to know if this was correct.
2) I know this has been asked, but what server hosts do you recommend?
Assuming you're self hosting, you're going to need a lot more than 1GB of RAM for a 24-30 person server. I recently fried a stick of memory on my server and just the overhead from CentOS overwhelms a server computer with 1GB within five to ten minutes.
I personally recommend that you self host if your wallet and personal connections allow. Me and my friends are able to sink a little bit of money into our server every once and a while and I know somebody who has corporate internet.
I've tried self hosting, but my internet speeds just aren't up to par with what I would need for the amount of players I want on the server. Thanks for the suggestion, I'm actually thinking about running a Tekkit server using my computer for some of my friends and I, but then using a host for my "main" server if I should call it that.
