Hi, I have always wanted to run a minecraft server but have never been to good at it, I came across the idea to run a 24/7 server which will obviously attract players worldwide. If someone could tell me how much it would cost to run a 24/7 server with 1-10 slots for 1 month please reply soon and also how many gb of internet usage it would take-up. Please Reply. If someone can help me then I will give free V.I.P rank on my server IF it becomes successful. Thanks :)

Depends on what host you would like.
Some price by:
-Players
-RAM

Suggested Hosts:
Mcprohosting
Beastnode
Treepuncher

But really I'd just do with McProhosting
http://mcprohosting.com/index.php

For a Dirt Plan its only $6 and includes:
768 MB of RAM
1-18 Players
Bukkit

Edit: Oh and for GB usage, it shouldn't really have any since its on one of their servers (An actual machine type of server), so all data goes through there.

Mmk than

If you do plan on making it 24/7 by keeping your pc on for a month, your usage rates will probably go through the roof. As for the cost. Unknown

it's free if you just want to download it from mojang and run it from your computer.
(does not include stress from having to portforward, and the strain it puts on your computer)

If you are really looking for a cheap hosted MC server for you to have on your own computer the price would depend on if you ISP charges you for the amount of bandwidth or amount of GB transfer between each player. So the costs in the long run would be dependent on your Internet Service Provider.

What you had done there was separate each part of a server start up into parts. To run the server it has to be a hole so if you put it together and make that hole it's not free. There is always a cost somewhere. Even air isn't free.

Right nothing is free, I get that. But that doesn't detract from the fact that just to create the server and just run it, Doesn't cost anything. Yes, with more people using your internet bandwith it will cost more. But that main point is the same. If you make a server, host it it's free. It ceases to be free once someone joins and start's eating up your bandwith
