Like all of these things there is a balance, and while some of it is location some is also affordability. TOG, while based in Australia, is a world wide group. From that perspective we should look at all options that give us what we need. A west coast US server may also be acceptable, we will just need to look at it. After all there is a significant EVE presence in Australia and that is a UK based server set (and the EVE ping time is much, much more significant than that for Minecraft).

I guess I am saying that I would not unnecessarily restrict your options to Australasia. There may be other acceptable choices.

Certainly. I was just indicating what sort of things I thought would be ideal. As you say, there are many criteria to investigate. Reliability, accessibility, speed, cost, and flexibility are just some of them.

I haven't had time to look for much yet. What hosts have any of you run your private servers on? What did you think of them? What did you run and how many people could use it at once?

And again, if looking at servers outside AU I can privately host it for pretty much no money at all.

Good to know Sorontar So, preference for Aussie with good (and logical) reasoning yet not entirely opposed to "the right stuff" elsewhere. Happy panda.

I asked as I have a VPS box in the US (basic bones, though) and the company is awesome; Ubiquity Hosting if anyone wants to check them out.

I have never tried loading Minecraft on it :P But now I might have a use for it... hrm....

100meg/100meg should be fine. Can you post a sample IP of a machine on your ISP so we can test latency from Australia? (say their DNS server) If you don't want to post your IP...

In a DC thread about payments elsewhere, Mixa has said the following:
Quote:
Chivalry uses a server host that has a clan-pay feature, you can have a sig that leads to the clan pay page all funds go directly to the server and all donators can see fund levels. Nice transparency. That host does minecraft at.60c us per slot with servers in sydney (Minecraft Game Server Rental | Buy MC Server Hosting - Multiplay Gameservers)
Just trying to keep a copy of everything about hosting in one thread.

Only thing I would say about multiplay is, ignore the per slot cost. If we assume we want at least 4G for the server in terms of memory it puts you at more like $3 per slot (with spring discount). The memory (for them) is the price driver.
