How much are people paying to run minetest servers?

by Nomis » Thu Mar 05, 2015 23:12

I'm interested if it's affordable. I have no issue with technical shindigerry, the skills I have from other work are entirely cross-transferable.

Plus I'll be able to be king for a day and thwart all you tiny plebeians according to mood.

Wonderful post. I ask the same question, then next step, how does one run a remote server Other than uploading the data.

Nomis, would you also delete buildings and remove area-protection of users who try to annoy you with requests? Read their private messages and force them into sending you money in real life?

Maybe I have been reading too much BOFH lately.

If you have a semi-decent pc you can leave on 24/7 then it only costs you electricity...

I pay $5 a month for my server. Above 10 players you can notice lag, with about 20 the lag becomes so strong that it's not fun to play any more.
That is (according to the hoster) 512 MB, 1 CPU, 20 GB SSD, 1000 GB Transfer.

I only pay the electricity costs for my Dual Core laptop server, possibly less than $5/month.
