    And we're back on the Minecraft Forums! We asked to have our thread removed from the forums when we ran into infrastructure problems with Minecraft on our network back in September 2011. After a bit over a year of development and testing we've greatly improved our network and management, we asked to have our thread reopened here. We've hosted over 2,000 Minecraft servers since the thread was removed, have added two global staffed locations where we run support out of (New York and UK) and completed a full overhaul of our management in late 2012 to provide much better service for our customers.

    We welcome any questions or concerns that any customers, current or future, may have, through this thread, PM or support ticket. As always, you can also request a week long trial through a support ticket.

    We are also running a 50% off for life ($10 per GB RAM) sale with discount code MCF2013MC

    i reinstalled my server deleted every thing still crashed i have 3 support tickets open 1 has been open for 20 hours now there awful


    You opened three tickets. In one of your tickets, we began to address your issue and you told us not to afterwards. In the other two you posted in all caps and didn't say anything except the fact that your server is crashing. After we looked into your server, we determined it's most likely crashing due to your own setup (and due to excessive CPU usage). If you didn't open a ticket essentially yelling at us and had actually described your issue in full, we would be able to give you a much better response time.

    @Playerkillers: Sorry to hear that, however I told you that we were doing a server wide backup for Pheo and once we got your files in tact on the backup network we would move your files over. We only just got your server files over considering that there's over 250GB of data to transfer, and we're moving your old files into the new server now.

    Quote from NoSuPie

    The only physical server location listed is in France? Your original post boasts having 2 in the US.


    We ran out of space on our US servers a few moments ago, we'll have additional space ready within 24 - 48 hours.

    Just some updates on Pheo.

    a) We have additional hired techs now working on the Pheo server now and we're adding on an additional monitoring network to hopefully sort out the I/O issues by tomorrow morning. These techs are now working 24x7 on the server.

    :cool.gif: Users on Pheo will now be credited 14 days instead of 7 days for prolonged stability issues on the server after full access is restored.

    c) Due to the repairs, you may experience some outages overnight, however all Minecraft servers and control panel accounts should be working normally as of now.

    How long do I have to act upon the 50% deal? Thanks.


    Quote from Puppier

    How long is this 50% deal running?


    Until the end of September, we will run another promo in October most likely as well of similar nature.

    I bought this server yesterday night uploaded my files files and started playing today we had over 50 players on at one point and not one complained about lag the Dashboard is great Im absolutely Ecstatic my only question is, is it possible to get a custom server with lets say 5 or 6 gbs ram cause My server is growing and i want to stay with your service


    Glad to hear that! =)

    Just open a support ticket with us if you need to upgrade to more than 4GB of memory and we can get it done for you without a problem (we may be able to even give you discounted pricing on additional RAM depending on your order). If you need even more power than that, we can also rent you a dedicated server (you can open a support ticket to arrange this as well).

    It is Volt's side (Pheo server), as I'm getting tons of messages from them about it. (Although a bit after the fact.) They're giving affected users an additional week of sub time, so there's that.

    I was able to get into the files for a moment and the config file (and presumably all the "default" files) was indeed reset. My additional uploads are still there. (Phew)

    So I haven't lost anything except time. I do want to like this host, they've been mostly prompt about sending info and I'll try and forgive them and just move on... Once the node is fixed.


    The system reset only the server.properties files for some servers when they failed to start during the server reboot @ ~9:50 EST, all of your binaries, other configurations (ie whitelists) and additional uploads such as worlds should be untouched.

    Since 10PM EST we haven't had any issues with the server, we found the underlying issue and we've temporarily disabled some background services that shouldn't affect your service while we repair them.

    If you're still having issues you should open a support ticket.

    @Playerkillers: the time when you posted the server was operating normally actually, if you open a support ticket instead of posting here we can address any issues that you have much more quickly =) (since we cant really do anything here for you).

    Quote from NXNeko

    If a lot of my users complain about things like lag due to distance would it be possible to transfer to the pheo (I'm guessing french) node if I opened a Ticket?


    Pheo is actually a server in our AZ datacenter, we can transfer you to Columba though (our new French server), just open up a support ticket at any time. We'll have automated transfers once the frontend for the offsite backup feature is completed and we can offer an "auto-restore" feature to automatically transfer your files.

    Only servers hosted on Pheo are affected by this, all of the trials right now in Arizona are being directed on another server (Gemini) since Pheo is full (and orders haven't been accepted on it as of Thursday). The rest of the network is fine right now (2x in AZ, 2x in FR, 2x in UK and 3x in IL).

    SSH access is down right now on Pheo due to a combination of an attack on the port which started as of ~7PM EST and an issue with the opensshd-daemon process which has once again arisen from previous issues, we're working on repairing this process on the server however we need to perform a hard reboot on the server to update the kernel. Naturally this would be faster however we've had to await our datacenter to process the reboot for us since we're still waiting on a fix for the RRB which is inoperable on our section of the rack.

    You've won me over. I started a trial the other night, and I really like it. Had a panel issue yesterday, but it's much better now. I should have the funding come in before the end of Sept, but if I don't, were you serious? :biggrin.gif:


    Yes, just make sure you have a support ticket opened with us about it before the end of the promotion so that we know about it =)

    Pheo (the node you're hosted on) had an issue with it's controller which made several daemons on the server unresponsive due to the issues last night, after a few hours of debugging we weren't able to fix it so we had to do a hard reboot of the box.

    Right now everything is back to normal and should stay that way (unless a creeper blows up the data center).

    We've also found the issue in the backend via some heavier debugging which originally caused the conflict and we're working towards a rewrite to prevent it from occurring in the future. We're also working on streamlining the console and control features via the backend for our control panel system to prevent any timeouts / page hangs in the future. This should all be added in within the next 6 - 12 hours.

    All of our other MC nodes have been operating fine today.

    My sincerest apologies to all of our users who have been affected by this, our number one priority is always stability, we're all hard at work right now to add in systems which will do both self-healing and extended early detection with our network.

    We understand that it's one thing to just say you're doing something and another thing to actually do it, we're (hopefully from your end) being as transparent as possible to ensure that you know what's going on and that we are currently actively working on it.

    It was great for a week and a half and now it's offline, the control panel is super slow and doesn't do anything but lie about the server being online, and I can't connect via FTP.

    I'm pretty dissapointed, but I've sent in a ticket and hopefully they'll get it resolved soon, or I'll have to move to another more reliable host.

    I'll update this post when I get a response.


    Please review your support ticket and the notice in your control panel, we had some system issues (and the server should be resolved as of 4AM EST). We've credited everyone with 3 days of free service to make up for the issues.

    Quote from TheFieldZy

    Hello, I manage the funds for a server, and part of my job is purchasing a host. I need to check with the owner and others to see which server is the best. While I wait for a response, I have a few questions. I know you said there isn't an exact end date for the use the 50% off coupon, but will it end soon? We plan to, at least hope to, open our server late September or early October, depending on when we finish the maps on our build server (its quite a large server). Also, just to check, this is a VPS? Not shared hosting? Xen VPS is my guess. We have a lot of custom plugins and maps, including multiverse, so there will be different players in different maps, so even though we may have only 50 slots, we will need 4096M for some of the load. Any help would be appreciated :smile.gif:


    The servers aren't hosted on VPS, they are hosted on a shared environment. The 50% off coupon will become inactive at the end of September =)

    @skullgunner1, everything is on a 1Gbit port. The web server itself is hosted in the iWeb datacenter within Montreal, we've gone through 5 different datacenters in the past year with our web server to find the best one for our users.

    As for the control panel, we've had some issues with two of our nodes network stability which has caused the lag in the control panel for clients hosted on them. Since we use a centralized connection system instead of the old fashioned approach of hosting control panels separately on each node, the connection time will be affected for you due to these issues unfortunately, however we've been working on it and it should soon be resolved (if it hasn't been already).

    Apologies to anyone who has been frustrated by the lag in the control panel, we're patching up some front end based loading into our back end controllers which will hopefully reduce any lag issues if an issue does arise in the future.

    PS: The "response time" figure refers to the amount of time taken to complete an http request from the Pingdom monitoring network: http://uptime.volt-host.com/352916. The web server itself is fine, it just verifies the control panel issue.

    Just thought I'd put this out there:

    Our network is currently quickly filling up, we have some network issues with our new French server which has delayed it's launch, and our new AZ server (16 core, 48GB DDR3) should be setup by the end of tomorrow (with ~80 dedicated IP's ready for new orders!).

    1.8.1 is now also available via the updater!

    MySQL is required buy many major plugins like iconomy. The plugins use it as a database to store info separate from the server files and is a good thing since the less files the better.


    MySQL is also generally alot faster than standard flatfile and SQLite in some cases which is a plus (and it makes managing your data alot easier via front end applications like PHPMyAdmin).

    Quote from skullgunner1

    Ah, I see. By the way, I'm loving Volt right now. However the website is receiving massive lag, taking a few minutes to load a page. Everything else on my web browser is working perfectly.


    Good to hear =) The website is loading fine for us (and our monitoring system isn't reporting anything out of the ordinary, try http://volt-host.com instead of https://volt-host.com and see if that makes a difference. If it doesn't -- send us a traceroute to volt-host.com via support and we'll see if it's something on our end for you.

    To update your server to 1.8 just go to the updater page in your control panel and select the latest version for Vanilla.
