I've got a small group of friends together who enjoy running our own private MineCraft server, but we also run our own modding website (largely unrelated to MineCraft). We've been running the Minecraft server off of a residential cable connection in the background on an i7 gaming rig (surprisingly no problems, running perfect after 4 months) and I've been running a small website from a hosting company called http://www.sharkspace.com/web-hosting.html
(using their Hammerhead service).
After perusing your website recently (I used to have a VENT server earlier this year/last year - and was very impressed with your service) I found that you have Minecraft Servers and Free Webhosting, which would fit our needs nicely . . . sort of. It seems like you have most the options except for cPanel (which is really overkill for my small Wordpress site) but after hunting down the Terms of Service I found this:
To limit the use of the webspace for illegal activities and for mirroring files, files over 200MB in size are subject to a throttle of 50 k/s per connection when downloaded through HTTP. FTP upload and download rates are similarly throttled at 100 k/s.
Development versions of our mod often exceed this (sometimes up to 1GB in size) and 100k up/down limits would mean it would take in excess of 2.7 hours per download/upload. Is this typically enforced? Or is this more of a reserve the right in case you see people abusing this feature?
Here is my sites bandwidth usage:
And a link to my site:http://www.nexus-studios.org/
I'm currently paying roughly $60 a year for webhosting; and even a small Minecraft server is doubling my small expenses for the year. I'd much rather go with a combined plan with you guys for a 10 player + Hosting deal at around $100 if possible; is this feasible? Or are my space/bandwidth requirements for the website excessive for the free web plan?
