If your looking for a cheap server hosting company, than I would recommend WitherNode. They are the cheapest ones I’ve found so far. Here’s a link

2gb= $4.39 USD
4gb= $8.79 USD
8gb= $13.19 USD
16gb= $17.59 USD

they also have 50% off discount for your first month.

Hope this helps.

you would be better off doing a dedicated server if you want to doo bungee, less headaches and it would be cheaper although there are a couple downsides, you will need to know how to use linux command line (CLI) and i have personally used vps's - cheaper weaker and less capable dedicated servers from OVH so that could be a start

Can you post a link to a company that offers decent Linux dedicated servers?

I would if I could but I can't, haven't had experience with dedicated server providers outside of what I have outlined. you would probably get more luck from a forum for tech talk only one comes to mind right now though, yes there are others.

It depends:
  • how many servers?
  • are you planning to use bungee cord?
  • what kind of servers?
  • how many players do you want to be able to handle?
  • if you have any idea of the resource requirements per player/server that would help as well

Heres what my needs will be

*How many servers?
A: 6 not including Bungee Proxy so 7 servers

*Are you planning to use Bungeecord?
A: Yes

*What kind of servers?
A: 1 Bungee Proxy, 1 Hub/Lobby Server, 4 Minigame Servers (Skywars, TeamdeathMatch, GunsPvp, and Kit PvP, 1 Survival server

*How many Players do you want to be able to handle?
A:100 to 300 players, but obviously when i first start out i will probably have low numbers maybe like 10 to 20 players at first

As far as resources go, heres what Im thinking

Bungee Proxy: 1GB Ram, 1GB uplink
Hub / Lobby: 2GB Ram
Minigame Servers: 4-6GB Ram each (X4)
Survival Server: 16-18GB Ram

I hope this helps and also thank you for the reply

Ok so here are some ideas for you:

  Idea 1: using VPS from Vultr ($138 per month or with the 16G server $186)

  • Splitting up the load on to different server gives you protection against things failing e.g. one of the minigame servers has a bug and uses 100% CPU does not affect the other servers
  • Easy to upgrade one or more servers if needed. The upgrade takes less than a minute. This is why I am suggesting starting with 8GB for the survival server if you find that it is not enough you can easily upgrade

  • More complex to manage because the servers are spread out
  • Web UI Minecraft server panels do not work well in this configuration
Ram (GB)CPUForPriceQtyTotal:
21Bungee and Hub$101$10
164Survival (Alternative)$961$96

  Idea 2: Dedicated server (For Price I will need to know where you want the server located)

  • Harder to upgrade the server
  • Harder to isolate the Minecraft server from each other
If you have any questions just ask. If you want to chat on discord: pixelsquared#0957
