    posted a message on How much bandwidth does a Minecraft server take up?

    I never tested how much Minecraft actually uses up on a regular server, but I know it's not a lot. I don't think you should have to worry too much about going over anytime soon. And if you're concerned about going over then just go rent a server from a hosting company and you won't have to worry then.

    Also, what's your bandwidth cap?

    OVH reseller! Anyone with the slightest bit of knowledge would know their claims of 480gbps protection isn't true. You'll get dropped at about 30-40gb, and OVH dedicated servers are really cheap to buy so great for start ups, but not anyone actually looking to become a good company and provide the best quality. Also, their network is known to have issues, I've had experience with that... And their support is non existent. Looks like one of those wanna-be start up companies. Why didn't you buy a dedicated server elsewhere?

    Also - for the cPanel hosting, 1.99$ and you're only getting 10GB of bandwidth and 512mb storage space? That is awful. 15$ and you only get 8GB storage space. How pathetic. You don't list anything about the cPanel hosting either, what's up with that?

    Hold on, you're making yourself look bad. 5$ for 1GB, then 2$ for 2.5GB, then 15$ for 5GB or 20$ for 6.5GB? That makes no sense. Your billing client doesn't have any products in it either, and it's not set up worth anything. The template you got is not for a hosting service what so ever. I've had trouble reaching the live chat, and you barely provide any information on like server specs, payment options accepted etc etc... So, what gives?

    I'm also going to try and speak to the person on the live chat to get some more information. Hope you're not putting bad quality on your brand and actually try and update stuff before you start posting about it on forums.

    posted a message on Having trouble opening my ports to create a Minecraft server

    If you're on WIFI, doing ipconfig in CMD should say your default gateway is example 192.168.1.1, same goes for if you're on a wired connection. Enter that into your URL bar and it'll pop up. Don't use your IPv4 address, that's just your device's IP on the network.

    Contacting your ISP or doing some Googling on your router is your best bet. If your router was supplied by your ISP contact them, if not research about your router.

    posted a message on Will hosting a server cause my ISP to charge me more money?

    Uhh, no. Port forwarding is 100% free, the only thing I can say they would charge you for is bandwidth fees but most ISPs don't charge you for how much bandwidth you use a month. A Minecraft server doesn't use much bandwidth anyways. If you do have a bandwidth cap, they should charge you for going over that limit, but if not then I don't see they would charge you for that. You could read their policies to see what they say about bandwidth usages etc. Like I said, Minecraft isn't bandwidth heavy, so I wouldn't worry about it even if you had a small limit.

    If your ISP ever charges you money to port forward, I'd recommend switching to another ISP for sure.

    Yes... No matter where he lives he can connect to your server. Just forward the port 25565, then find your ip by Googling "what is my IP". Start the server client, then give him your IP. If you're not sure how to port forward, you do it in your router's web page. For example 192.168.1.1 leads to my routers web page. You just need to look for where you can port forward at. You can lookup a tutorial on how to do so as well, of course.

    You should already know the rest.

    I mean I'm sure it would be just fine unless you're getting a mass amount of loads. Why not go somewhere else though? That's a big desktop class CPU but a Xeon would be way better. Besides OVH is terrible. I would recommend going elsewhere, but if you really want that I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to try.

    posted a message on Windows Server or Linux Server?

    Of course, Linux. Not sure why you would use Windows, it's completely unnecessary for a Minecraft server.

    I use CentOS and recommed it. Also tried and had good luck with Ubuntu, too.

    2.5$ per 1GB of RAM? Sounds like some overselling memory to me, and possibly an OVH reseller.

    If you weren't, it'd be at the lowest 5$ per 1GB and at max 10$ per 1GB.

    How would that even work? It needs to be open on your router to accept incoming connections onto that port. Just go into your router's interface and open up a port for Minecraft - boom, simple.

    posted a message on Howcan I put a Minecraft Server I Made Using Spigot up 24/7

    Just have your PC on 24/7. If you don't want to do that, go out and buy an MC server from a hosting company, it'll be 24/7 then, as long as they keep to their promise of uptime.

    posted a message on OVH SSD 3 - What can it handle?

    Two game servers at a time on a VPS? No way, go with something bigger. With my experience with the 2GB VPS from OVH, it's not all that. Go with a company like BuyVM that does't use or depend on SWAP memory, cheap prices, great specifications and perfect DDoS mitigation from Voxility. Of course you could setup GRE/IPIP tunnels, but that's pathetic if you have to do that knowing they have "pro" protection. Besides, I've heard OVH has some mitigation problems. I haven't received an attack yet so I can't say for sure about that one. Go with an actual hosting provider, I recommend www.minerack.org, because you won't have to spend a whole bunch of money on the control panel etc it's all there for you.
