    What? 8MBit/second is plenty. I can host a few (3-5) on my private server which has 0.5Mbit/second upload speeds. The general assumption seems to be 0.1-0.2MBit/second per player (but certain actions will momentarily take more so having 10% or so "reserved" speed for this to prevent sudden lag spikes is recommended).
    I would say you could easily host 20-40. Providing your not playing on the machine that is hosting. The GPU won't be used, you may want to consider a proper server OS like Ubuntu Server or CentOS Server to provide increased stability (both can be freely and legally downloaded off the internet).

    canihostaminecraftserver.com is pretty unreliable, it seems to be based off non parabolic equations when in reality it is all quite parabolic.
    Just try it out, how bad can it go?
    EXCEPT: Are you on an unlimited plan? Hosting a server uses a decent amount of bandwidth, most hosts will suspend your account (especially unlimited ones, as servers ruin there business model).


    Thanks for taking the time to reply. I'm not entirely sure if I have unlimited bandwidth but I'm guessing that I don't considering it's for a home office.

    I was thinking about renting a server off of the internet (paying monthly) but I'm not entirely sure on how that stuff works so I may look into it. Besides then, I could play on the server and not worry about it going to ****. The problem is the cost though, a nice server can cost around 50-100 dollars a month and I don't know where I can come up with the money to pay for that, which it would be nice if I could get the server to pay for itself.

    Heres what my motd text is:


    Welcome to Jake's server &c{PLAYER}&c!
    &fType &c/help&f for a list of commands.
    Currently online: {PLAYERLIST}.
    Be sure to register on the website at &ahockeyserver.webs.com&a so you can stay up to date on the server.

    This is how it turns out:



    You see, the bottom line isn't supposed to be all green, just the website name is.

    Be sure to register on the website at hockeyserver.webs.com so you can stay up to date on the server.
    ^ This is what it should really look like ^

    So could anyone tell me what's going wrong here?

    Sure you can


    I guess my question is, about how many players could I fit without too much lag?
    Quote from webrosc

    what is the cpu, single, dual, quad, etc?
    graphics card isn't used by a server so thats not needed.

    an upload sped of that speed is pretty slow for a server, you'd be looking at 8 people max (i maybe a bit wrong) but either way not many people

    It's an i7 processor.

    Remember when MC Forums used to have the Starting up/Creating a server where you could post topics in? Where would one post if we were going to start up a server?

    Long before the invasion of the Warlocks; Dux Brujo, the leader of the Warlocks, was still trapped inside the Cubiculum (jail chambers of the Nether). Each day passing, rage built up within Dux Brujo. He used his remaining of powers to look at the kingdom of Forthaven each day, trying to find any secrets of how to get out of the world he had been trapped in for many years now. But one day, a young villager, around 21, had learned his family had abused magical powers. As he stood on the sand, he watched his his loved ones, were one by one, killed by hanging. The anger within him was unbearable, which made him soon become classified 'insane' by the town and was teleported to the chambers within the Nether to be trapped forever. Veneficus, the only person within the kingdom allowed to use magic at the time, had felt a piece of this boys anger before in his life when the Warlocks had burned his parents in front of his own eyes as a child. He purposely teleported the boy into the corridors of the jails, and filled the boy with the wisdom to open the gates of the jail, and once again release the Warlocks. Unfortunately for the sake of the Whitesteed kingdoms, the boy did just as expected. Upon release Dux Brujo presented the boy with a title of the secondary leader of the Warlocks, and was given the name "Aenean Sollicitudin". The Warlocks quickly built up their defences, using minions created from the Netherrack itself. All day these minions would mine Obsidian deep within the Nether. After months of preparation, the Warlocks finnally had a fortress, in which they named Solumque Castellum. They gathered their armies, and prepared for a full-fledged attack on the people of Whitesteed. About to attack, the Warlocks constructed a large portal to the mainland of Whitesteed within the city of Solumque Castellum. As Dux Brujo gathered his powerful army, they marched through the portal with great anger and excitement as Dux Brujo and Aenean Sollicitudin watched with devious smiles on their face. At the same time, in Whitesteed, the world began to shake violently. People screamed in the streets of cities, babies were crying, and the knights of the kingdom positioned themselves on the walls and prepared for what was to come. Unfortunate for them, they had no idea what troubles lied ahead. Mutant freaks of the Nether rushed into the world, rising from the ground. Armies of Whitesteed fought their hardest, but were outmatched by their opponents. Soon the world of Whitesteed went to hell.

    If someone could just create cool text that says 04hockey with a nice dark blue and black background I would appreciate it a lot.

    You can PM me if you want something for the logo although I don't have much to offer.
