    Hi,

    The question hosts want answered with a sponsorship is, "What can you do for us?" Currently, I see you're asking for a server, but to get good offers, that's the question you need to answer.

    Have a great day!

    Hello there, we are Host-Seed. And we're here to help with all your Minecraft server needs, literally. We host packages from half a gigabyte to massive 72GB dedicated servers. Not only that, we do web design (we made our site!), graphics, and promotional trailers. Chances are, if you need something, we've got it. Now, what are you here for again? That's right, hosting.

    Here are some features and bits about us:
    • All servers run on Solid-State-Drives for blazing fast speed.
    • We've created a enhanced version of Multicraft designed to make your life easier and prettier!
    • Manage resources with our own custom control panel, Aksel. View and analyze historical usage statistics with the click of a button. (Note: Still in beta, but releasing around the end of June!)
    • We have agents on our Live Chat nearly 24/7, so if your server is broke, we can fix it!
    • Every server gets unlimited SSD storage, so long as you use it fairly!
    • We don't monitor your bandwidth - don't be afraid to play all you want.
    • Our staff are some of the top in their field, with a minimum of six of years experience in their specialties.
    • Dedicated IPs are optionally available and can be used on most of the servers.
    • MySQL databases are available for just fifty cents a month - cheaper than a soda.
    Why are we so affordable? It's simple, really. We don't gut you for your money. We enjoy doing this, and we think you should too. Our client base shows how much this idea works - just in the past few weeks our servers have recorded over 135,000 unique players. And we've never gotten a negative testimonial. Other hosts may seem cheaper, but most of them put you on slow HDDs - we don't, Solid State Drives all the way!


    Servers available in the US and now the UK as well!

    Ah. I would expect you would have learned from the first time, but it appears this is not so. Best of luck to you.

    Hello,

    In hosting requests, you apply to hosts, not the other way around. Unless you are an increbily popular and known server, hosting companies aren't going to compete for you - especially not with an application written in broken English and giving no information. You're special? In detail, why are you special? What can you offer us? Hosting costs money, and basically you're asking people to apply for the "privilege" of being able to give you money. You might check out Entei's guide here, you'll probably have much more success with that.

    Have a good day!

    Quote from Cadigris

    Do you offer a trial server? (few days/month)? How long have you been hosting? Do you have long term goals? Will you be here in a year, 2 years, 10? If you were to close would you tell your customers before so they could move somewhere else with out losing everything?

    Current host never emails about anything ever which causes me much worry that one day they will just be up and gone with no warning.


    Good questions, I will try to answer them as candidly as possible.

    If we were to close, we would certainly tell our hosters about it. We keep enough funds in "cold storage" to sustain us for a while, and if there was any sort of emergency resulting in our closing, we would certainly keep the servers up long enough for all our customers to get their files and configs off, and find a new host. I believe I can speak for most all of us when I say that our main motivating factor is enjoyment on both sides, not profit, so there would be no point in us closing down suddenly and without warning - it might save a few pennies, but would leave a very bad legacy. As our website says, "We enjoy doing this, and we think you should too."

    We maintain a pretty consistent email contact. We don't try to spam your inbox, but we do send information if there is an emergency of some sort, or if there are changes that need to be made to your server. We also send out a monthly newsletter (such as the one above) which is - surprisingly - good to read, as it always contains some sort of giveaway along with our most recent R&D updates and releases. And we have very good support if you have any questions, which is something the majority of people talk about in their many testimonials about us.

    As for permanency, we have no plans of closing. Currently, we have enough financial redundancies to ensure that a disruption in one sector would not resulting in the entire service going down. It would take a very extreme set of cases to force us to close entirely - we are not one of the dime-a-dozen "boom and bust" companies. At the moment we are still increasing our services at a healthy pace, and have opened up servers at a new location just this past week.

    Our overall company has been alive and active for about two years now, without notable disruptions aside from a recent rebranding for more Minecraft-specific services.

    We do not offer a trial server, though we have a demo server available. Message me if you would like the IP for that; though we do have DoS protection, we'd prefer not to have to use it too often.

    Well, there's nearly 500 words. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask on here, Live Chat, or tickets!

    posted a message on Guide: Finding The Right Server Host
    Good guide. Might also want to mention to be wary hosts which advertise the E3-1245v2 or the E5-1620 as the CPUs which power their main nodes. Some things to add:

    On CPUs, clock speed is not the only (or even a good) comparative factor in CPUs. A CPU I like to pick on for this is the AMD Bulldozer CPU which, while being a desktop processor, is perfect for illustrative purposes. The FX-8150 was a eight-core processor clocked at 3.6Hz. Sounds great, right? Not always. In the real world, the puny 3,1GH Intel i5 2400 was able to pull ahead of it in some tasks. [source] If you're serious about getting the best performance, research the different CPUs in more detail - don't be "wowed" by the advertised clock speeds.

    Secondly, core count does matter (a bit). While Bukkit is still largely single-threaded, it is moving towards a more multithreaded approach, and many plugins already thread some of their tasks. Largely though, your server is not the only one on the node (aside from straight dedicated servers). While your server might mainly be running on a single thread, others servers may be running on different threads, thereby allowing greater performance overall. Now, like clock speed, core count is not a 100% deciding factor (nothing can be that simple!), but it is not something to rule out entirely while looking for a host.

    As far as network goes. You might ask the salespeople the average and peak network usage. (if the salesperson doesn't know, look elsewhere - you want more competent people) These hosts that advertise "1 Gbps" connections - that's great - but, for ourselves, we rarely see over 20 Mbps usage per node even in peak hours. Therefore, we us 100 Mbps ports, because there would be little purpose or change (aside from higher prices) in offering a 1 Gbps ports. Also, there is a difference between port speed and actual connection speed. If you have a mid to high end computer which you bought in the last few years, you very well may have a 1 Gbps port too! However, your home connection is likely much lower than that - know the difference, and watch for people who try to squirm through with that.

    Finally, one last note on "hard drives". For most servers, you would not want a host who uses a hard drive - there are plenty out there with the faster Solid State Drives (and, again, if a salesperson calls an SSD a hard drive, look elsewhere for more competent people). Looking at our nodes, it doesn't *really* matter the brand, as the peak usage does not generally reach the maximum that the drive is capable of, but it is something to consider. OCZ and Samsung are the two fastest namebrands (we want read speed, because that's what matters in chunk loading) [source], though most SandForce-based drives would do fine.

    That's about it, have a good day!

    Some of my friends and I are starting a PvP-faction server. We already have everything set up, but voting. Does Host-Seed allow you to just put in all your stuff that has already been done? Because we already have the map and plugins in, like I said before. All of these reviews look like this should be a great host! Can't wait for the reply. See ya!

    Hi,

    Yep, we can set up anything you already have. You can get the $5, one-time file transfer plugin, or you can transfer it yourself (we provide FTP). Let me know if you have any other questions. Hope to see you soon!

    Hi Zombie! We can offer you our 8GB Blaze for just $50 per month, with 192 slots. Of course, what you can actually run will vary with your specific setup, but that should be plenty.If you want to save some money, you could get the 3GB Zombie, which might also work, for $24 and spend the extra and advertising and building your server!

    Support is great - we've provided over three hundred and thirty hours of Live Chat support just this past month. Every server runs on solid-state drives for blazing fast speed.

    Fair enough? Check out our website or check out our MCF posting for more details
