Feb 14, 2014As said above, dedicated IP means only your server is running on the IP. In many instances hosts have a few Ips and allocate multiple servers to these IPs, so you end up with:Posted in: Hosting Discussion
If you purchase a dedicated IP you are the only one assigned that IP, as such:
Since 25565 is the default port users don't need to enter a port to connect. As always you can setup DNS records so you can connect with a domain. You can also setup a SRV record so users can connect to the server without entering a port, even if you use a non-default port.

I agree, aswell has does MCF actually look how good the host is not the Amount of View or post the Host gets but the actuall host.
do they actually use a test server and see how the host is? or even question them.
my opinion we need a better Hosting section approval system.
We barely have enough staff to keep up with everything else in the Servers section as it is. Other hosts has a pretty clear warning up there, use at your own risk. I don't understand why people think we check out hosts before they are allowed to post. If you want a reputable host who has shown that they have met some basic requirements then use the section that isn't 'Other Hosts.' These hosts aren't "approved" by MCF, but they have meet some basic requirements and have been allowed to post in that section. For more info, see this post.
Feb 10, 2014The servers section doesn't allow bumping because it would just clog it up more. Even with those rules in place people still bump topics, and it takes a ton of time to keep it clean.Posted in: Forum Discussion & Info
You can see the announcement at the top of the PC servers section which clarifies what we consider bumping, and what is allowed server discussion.
Feb 9, 2014Fishfish0001 posted a message on Would a TX or NY Server location be better for FL?Try running a trace route on some test IPs for each location, should give you a good estimate of which location will work better.Posted in: Hosting Discussion
Regardless, I think either would be about the same for you. Try looking at Ashburn, VA which would be closer than NY. I think Atlanta also has some companies.

I have no clue why yours isn't working but just use the link feature rather than manually typing out the BBCode.
Its because he somehow got the color bbcode mixed into it.

Feb 1, 2014You don't need to set an IP in the server.properties unless you are using a system with multiple IPs available.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
That error is due to something else running on whatever port you assigned, or if default, 25565. If on windows, check task manager for any running java processes and kill them, or you can just reboot your computer.
Jan 31, 2014Posted in: Hosting DiscussionQuote from AlwaysSmileThat's nonsense to multiply clock speed by amount of allocated cores.Quote from Neelix_BFTThe world record for highest CPU clock speed is 8.8GHZ, 1 core suicide run with liquid nitrogen on an AMD CPU. Multiplying the indiviual clock speeds of every core is not the proper way to report what CPU clock speed they offer. Each individual core is running somewhere between 3-4 GHZ each as thats the typical range. You don't say "okay, I have a 4 core CPU and each core is running at 3.0GHZ, therefore I have a 12GHZ CPU, thats not how it works. Respectfully as a holder of an A+ Certification from CompTIA, they are wrong. Really, the clock speed is irrelevant anyway, since there are older CPU's that have 3-4GHZ clock speeds but a less efficient design. You really should ask them specifically what model CPU they're offering.
My quote below should clear up what I was saying.
For example, if the physical x86 server has four dual-core CPUs running at 4GHz each and 32GB of system memory, the host has 32GHz of computing power and 32GB of memory available for running virtual machines that are assigned to it.
