What are the specs a server should have in order to run a 500 slots server? And what will it's average cost will be?
We could do a setup for you that:
E3-1270 3.4Ghz H/T 8 log cores
For around $550 / mo. We could either give you root or let you manage an MC server via our control panel on a dedicated box, whichever is more convenient for you.
We can boost the clock speed on the processor somewhat as well if needed. Pricing will obviously change based on what your needs are (ie less memory, more memory, different processor).
The amount that you'll need will obviously change based on your server configuration but we think a setup like that should be fine based on our pre-established averages.
