Frequently Asked Questions

Minecraft: Which modpacks can I run on each game server hosting plan?

The $10 plan supports smaller modpacks. All other plans have enough resources to run any modpack. You can also run modpacks that aren't on instant install using the custom JAR feature in our custom control panel, Command Center.

Minecraft: Which plan should I use for All The Mods 3?

We recommend using the $20 Multi-Server plan that comes with 4GB of memory and applying all of the memory to a single server. This should let you and up to 4-6 total people play together.

Minecraft: Can I set the world seed?

Yes! Our web panel lets you edit the server.properties file to set the seed. You'll have to start off with a new world. If you want to keep your existing world, change the level-name in server.properties.

How many servers can I run at the same time?

How many servers you can have running at the same time depends on which plan you have. The first two tiers let you run one server at a time. The $20 tier lets you run two servers at a time. For more details see our game server plans.

Do stopped servers count toward my memory usage?

No, they do not. Running/Active servers count toward your memory usage and active server limit. All servers count toward your total server limit.

How can I upgrade my plan?

Upgrade anytime through Command Center or contact us. We'll only charge you for the unused portion of the month. Let's say you want to upgrade a $20 plan to a $30 one exactly halfway through the month. You'll pay $5.00. Note that if you're using PayPal, we'll need to renew your plan on the day of the upgrade.

Should we need to move your server to a machine with more capacity, we'll work with you to move it at a time that is least impactful to your players.

Can I upload and download my world?

Yes! You have full FTP access, which will let you upload and download all of your game files including your worlds.

How much disk space is included?

You will have 5GB of disk space per 1GB of memory. This is typically more than enough for most games such as Minecraft. You can use this space as necessary to store files like plugins, maps, and game specific files like Dynmap tiles for Minecraft. If you need more disk space, you will have the option to order more.

We'll automatically remove backups created by backup plugins and out-of-control log files. However you can coordinate with support beforehand to setup an alternate storage medium if you would like to use backup plugins. Most backup plugins tend to use disk space in an inefficient manner. We already run daily backups, which you can request through support.

For everything else, we'll notify you if your usage appears to be out of the norm so you can investigate, clean up, and/or make arrangements with us.

Can I buy more disk space?

You can purchase more storage space at the rate of $2.50 per 5GB a month. Open a support ticket if you need to upgrade.

Where are your servers and what are their specifications?

Check our tech specs page for all of the details.

Which ports are open?

Default ports for popular plugins, such as Dynmap, a Google maps like map viewer, and Votifier, a server voting plugin, are open. We have also opened custom ports for our users in the past.

Which files am I allowed to edit?

You can edit most text files, including server.properties, through Command Center, our custom control panel. We give you a giant text editor with code highlighting to edit your text files. The text editor, instead of a restricted clickable GUI, gives you the most flexibility. You can change every file through FTP with any modern FTP client.

The IP, port, and query port are the only settings we'll overwrite.

Can I use my own domain name?

Of course. Specify when you order or let us know so we can make sure everything is setup on our end.

How much memory does each plan have?

  • Basic: 2GB RAM
  • Single Server: 3GB RAM
  • Multi-Server: 4GB RAM
  • Multi-Server+: 6GB RAM
  • Mighty Gamer: 8GB RAM
  • Mighty Gamer+: 12GB RAM

What is your refund policy?

We want you to be happy with your server! During the first 7-days you can cancel your server and receive a full refund. To receive the refund you must request one by contacting us or submitting a ticket through the client area. Please state your reason for cancellation so we can better our service. If there's anything we can do to solve your issue, we'd love to help! It's simple.

When do you bill me? What happens if a payment fails?

We automatically attempt to process payment each month to ensure continuity of service. The billing cycle is the same day of each month. For example, if you ordered on the 3rd of a month, it'll be on the 3rd of each month. If you happened to order on February 28 or the 31st, the renewal is somewhere around the end of the month or beginning of the next one.

If a payment fails, you'll receive a reminder to pay, and if your server remains unpaid, we'll pause it. After a week or two, we'll cancel your server. You'll receive three emails--one reminding you to pay, another one about pausing your server, and a third one about cancelling.

How do I stop service?

To stop service, contact us before the next billing cycle. Tell us why you're cancelling and whether you want to stop your server right away or at the end of the billing cycle.

You may also cancel by yourself by logging into our client area. Use the password you first entered when you signed up. It may be different than the one you're using for Command Center.
