Nov 15, 2014If its not a heavily modded server you can probably get away with a Micro instance, thats what I use for development an such and it works fine.Posted in: Hosting Discussion
As for starting/stopping the entire server at certain hours that is totally possible, you'll probably want an elastic IP so it doesn't change every time, and you'll want to look into solutions for saving all of your data, otherwise each time you stop an instance it will delete all of your data.
Oct 23, 2014Fishfish0001 posted a message on How much HDD space would you like to see available from a VPS provider?I'm not any authority, I was just throwing in my two cents. From what I know though, SSDs (while coming down in price) are still more expensive per GB than a similar sized HDD. Additionally, what purpose requires 10TB of SSD space? If you are simply storing large amounts of data a standard HDD (albeit slower) will work just fine, especially if it isn't read/write intensive. A system such as Amazon Glacier can store 10TB of files for ~$100/mo. which works nicely if you are using it for backups or other data with infrequent use.Posted in: Hosting Discussion
Consider the cost of 4x SSD vs 4x HDD. For simplicity sake, we want 1TB of RAID-10. Thats 4x 1TB SSD vs. HDD, the cost difference is huge.
Oct 23, 2014Fishfish0001 posted a message on How much HDD space would you like to see available from a VPS provider?Because 10TB of storage might as well be a dedicated server, same for 4TB.Posted in: Hosting Discussion
Most VPS providers run RAID-10 (or similar) making it either extremely expensive or impractical to run on such large amounts. If you want that much space though get a Dedicated server or NAS system, or just use multiple servers. You could also use Amazon S3 or similar.

Later I edited the post about our citybuild-server and it disappeared, too
Fixed them for you, sorry about the spam filter.
Sep 6, 2014I'm pretty sure MCMA doesn't run on port 80. You should try port 8080 (e.g. http://example.com:8080)Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Sep 3, 2014Bukkit files were not taken down for EULA stuff, they were taken down because a person who was contributing code send a DMCA Takedown notice to Bukkit.Posted in: Hosting Discussion
My rough understanding of the issue:
- Wolv contributed GPL code to bukkit
- Bukkit distributed this code as part of an LGPL/GPL distribution
- However, bukkit had no right to say that mojang's code was LGPL (the quote from Vu Bui says this)
- Therefore they were distributing unlicensed/proprietary software alongside GPL software
- Therefore the GPL code was used illegally, as it cannot be combined into proprietary code.

It's honestly just annoying to see copy-paste posts. First off, they're not allowed in the Hosting Requests sections since it's against the rules. That should be a no brainer honestly. Second, copy-paste doesn't look professional and you don't create that connection with the client.
If you see a host copy and pasting replies report it. Its hard enough keeping up with all of the sections, you can't honestly expect moderators to spend their entire day in a single section monitoring every single post a host makes. While we do regularly check, it can be hard to notice the copy and pasted posts if we are just doing normal browsing in the section, or we end up missing it because it seems so innocuous in the current context.
I would like to point out that what you consider copy-and-paste rule breaking, may not actually be breaking the rules.
Replies must meet all needs outlined in the original post along with any other relevant information based on what the topic starter posted (memory, price, slots, country, etc.), posting only server rates is not allowed.
Hosts can use a template if they want, so long as they are tailoring their responses.
