    Why not just host on your computer? Dedicate a GB of RAM to minecraft and host if it's just for friends (I'm guessing) that'll just be easier than dishing out cash for something like this.

    My internet blows and I'm on a Macbook. It would be ideal, I believe, to have it hosted on a server elsewhere. I could upgrade to have plenty more RAM there, if I had a good amount of people on it, or if we felt it necessary.

    Well since you're still wanting to buy hosting, I've used this company they're really good always answered back relatively quickly never experienced any lag whatsoever price is also cheaper than your $16 for 1GB.

    I was looking for that site, but lost the name! Thank you for the link. I have no idea how to setup anything, and I was hoping for some help. How easy is it to set up a modpack onto a server like that? I want to be able to control the server and change the list of who can join, while not having to learn too much code. I know, I'm a noob. :tongue:

    As far as I know you can only install Vanilla, Bukkit and Tekkit (Not 100% on Tekkit though) but you should go in game and type /whitelist on and then /whitelist add yourusername and whoever else you want to be able to join. Through the command line type op yourname and you'll become an operator or admin of the game, and can control it. If you need anymore help shoot me a PM or just reply here.

    Thanks. I contacted customer support and they got back to me really quickly. They told me I dont have to set anything up myself, which is awesome.

    Insanely overpriced company is insanely overpriced. I think we have enough pocket milkers up there as of now, but I'll add them should I see fit in the future.

    Thanks for the input.

    Very overpriced, but their customer support, and quality is the best I've ever had. I also got a 10% discount on every single thing they added to my server. :tongue:

    Edit: $188.00 for that 1270v2 ;3

    Edit2: Allgamer is god and all, i had a dedicated server with them, but they kicked me out once i started getting hit by little 70mbit DDoS attacks with a 100mbit line. Do the math.
    Incero is garbage. I was with them a while back, and they were more about money than they were about their customers. Their 1Gbit lines are cool and all, but i prefer a host that knows how to do customer support.

    Im thinking 1G to start, the only problems i have seen with it so far is that you can have a custom IP.

    If you're inexperienced, Fragnet is a good starting point.

    Skeleton, hop off if you plan to spam the host you like.

    Thanks for your input, I'm not inexperienced as i have hosted other servers before, but i was looking for something really reliable with good uptime. Fragnet seems like a good choice.

    Skeleton, Don't be a fool.

    Fragnet is good for starters. You should be good with them :smile:
