A good machine to run a large minecraft server on?OR Can i buy a minecrat server (not pay monthly)?
Soon, in a few months or so, i will be creating a minecraft server that i know for a fact will ave many players. I was wondering if i can buy a machine/computer tht would run the server efficiently. all the computer has to do is run the server with enough memory for maybe a max of 300 slots. Thats all the computer/machine will be doing, no microsoft word, no nothing. Just the server.
Is it possible for me to BUY, not pay monthly, a minecraft server? I believe it would be called VPS or something? Please answer, and if i worded anything wrong, tell me and ill add additional details.
PS the machine would have to run the server 24/7
Thx in Advance
Also, don't just say that you can just download a server start from the site (minecraft.net) cuz i need something powerful enough to handle 300 player slots (give or take a few)
Heres a little info that i thought might help.
[100mb = 1 player
so, if 1gb (dnt worry about the 24mb left over) holds 10 players
then 30gb would hold 300 players (slots)]
Hope this helps
