The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
We are looking for a hosting company that meets the following conditions.
Owns the hardware we are paying for, not renting it from somebody else.
Can provide support for Forge / Spigot / Bukkit
Provide a dedicated amount of ram. (Not looking for "shared" anything)
TeamSpeak 3 Server (40 slot to begin)
Website for server, including Dynmap
McMyAdmin Control Panel
Knowledge of setting up modded servers within a forge / bukkit environment
Some of the Plugins / Mod we will be running:
All mods from TPPI +10 more
We are not looking to set up Linux distro/windows installs. We want to run our server on hardware powerful enough for us not to lag. We build large complicated multi-mod contraptions that have massive particle effects and loads of vanilla/modded Redstone. We use mystcraft to create multiple words for our players. People will be streaming to twitch.tv and recording Youtube videos. TPS is VERY important.
Price range is $100 - $150 Monthly. Would prefer to be able to test for a little bit (5-7 days) before being locked into a contract. We will be having multiple words loaded at the same time. Looking to start server testing before the end of august. Server to open to public before September 15.
Please provide the following information when replying:
Company name and contact information
Specific package you are offering, or specs if it is tailor made
SSD specs, Ram speed and latency, CPU Specs
Any additional information you feel is relevant
Thank you for reading.

I'm an Admin over at MyM.li and a Good one.
I don't put up with people's excrement. I will most likely offend you.
(Mostly) Not on purpose, but because I will always speak the truth.
All I ask is that you put your big girl panties on and get a thicker skin.

For such a large monthly budget and since you cite that performance is so incredibly important, you might be better off renting a dedicated server than getting a shared McMyAdmin plan with a Minecraft reseller. Also, there isn't a huge difference between a professional hosting provider that owns their own hardware, and a professional hosting provider that rents from a datacenter. The main difference is that the former is paying a lot more in expenses, especially up front. Considering you have to shell out at least $1000+ for a good dedicated server, and then pay monthly fees for colocation on top of that, it doesn't make financial sense in comparison to renting from a high quality datacenter, as in a year or two the hardware is going to be outdated, and then you're going to have to spend another $1000+ to get a new server, while upgrading from renting is much easier to do financially. Anyways, sorry for the little rant there, wanted to throw that in.
With regards to renting a dedicated server, I would highly suggest that you rent from a datacenter and not from a Minecraft reseller, and cut out the middleman. You can get a pretty good deal on dedicated servers at OVH/SoYouStart. If you're willing to shell out some more money you can go with a host like PhoenixNAP/SecuredServers or SingleHop or SoftLayer. OVH/SYS would definitely be the cheapest option. If you really want a control panel like MCMyAdmin, you can install it yourself on a dedicated server, or you could I guess go with a Minecraft host and they could setup the panel for you on the dedicated server, although you will be paying more.
If you do need a Minecraft host for a dedicated server, I would highly recommend that you purchase from a reputable company that has been around at least a year, because you don't want to get burned on such a big expense. I personally rented a dedicated server from a Minecraft host once, and they never gave it to me and ended up shutting down. I made a PayPal dispute, and they claimed they had given me my service even though that was a lie. Sadly PayPal sided with that host as it was a virtual product, there was no proof that they had given it to me or not. $100 out the window.
