Avoid this server host.
My server ran smooth for about a month or two before it got tremendous lag from out of nowhere. The lag would appear spontaneously and become more frequent over time. I approached tech support about the issue, and after ten days of practically being unable to play a server I’m paying too much for, I get this response:

Hi [me],

The high ping is going to be an issue on your client side. It can be caused by any number of issues including distance from our servers, downloading/uploading while playing, repairs to your internet lines around your neighborhood. Unfortunately for ping issues there’s nothing that can be done on our side to correct them.

–[Tech Support]

In the end, I had received no help from tech support. They neither looked into the issue past what I was telling them, nor did they reply in any sort of timely manner (5 replies in 12 days, and that’s including the reply to have my account terminated).

To clarify the above; the server was lagging bad, and what tech support was saying was that apparently it’s a clientside issue when lo and behold, others on my server all across western Washington ranging from Northern Seattle to Tacoma experienced the same problem, at the same time, and we were all experiencing about a 5-10 second lag until the server booted us and simply wouldn’t allow us to connect even after multiple server restarts.

tl;dr > don’t go to servercraft, their tech support is awful.

Have had a server with these guys for a couple months now and every ticket I have submitted it takes at least 10 hours to get a reply if not longer. The last ticket I just submitted it took them 14 hours to reply and all they needed to do was reboot the KVM device for my dedicated server. I would not recommend this host as they lie about 24/7 support for your server. Also they make excuses that they are 24/7 support and they start to look at your ticket in the order it was received and try to say if you reply to your ticket at all it puts it at the back of the queue.

I’ve used servercraft for well over a year now. Yes that’s right. I have seen them go from less than good to pretty decent over that time, and although it is time for me to change hosts, it is not because they are a bad host; they are very good hosts in fact.

I just don’t recommend them for LARGE servers. Small servers however, yes i do highly recommend them. These guys were great, and the only reason i am moving hosts is because my server has grown a lot more than expected and it has to much lag for the price i pay. (tier 6 : 30ish players : 15ish plugins)

Response time – Very fast, Very understanding of issues too.

Features – Nice, McMyAdmin 2, a decent plugin upload and management system too, only had issues with it a few times in the year i used it.

Performance – Less than stellar. But this is based upon how my server is running now with more people and plugins – previously it was decent.

Price – Poor for what you get, if your looking to expand fast, you will need a high-tier right off the bat.

Website – Very easy to navigate, easy on the eyes. Great design overall

Uptime – I do admit that they went down a decent amount for me, for reasons unknown to me too. But overall they didn’t go down enough for me to think “wow this is bad”

Overall – Do i recommend ServerCraft? Yes and No.

Yes if you’re going to be running a small to mid-sized server with friends. Server craft will be excellent for you.

No if you want a medium to large-sized server that will run multiple plugins with ease. It does the job, I’m not saying it doesn’t. But it costs a lot for that job and you don’t get as much as you would with another host. It becomes a hassle to run the server really.

This company is the reason I am on this site looking for a new host. I had a minor billing issue a little over a month ago, which resulted in suspended automatic payments. When I asked how I should fix it, I was told to create a new account, and they would link my old server to the new account iff I submit another ticket.(it took them nearly 32 hours to respond to this one and about 24 hours for the previous one.)

This all came after a rather lengthy (2 week) downtime during which I couldn’t access mcmyadmin or communicate with the company in any way.

On top of all this, I came to realize that I was paying a rather high price for what I was getting.($14.99 for a 600mb server) Performance was ok (when there was a server up to do any performing). Nothing special about their website other than that it refused to work with Opera (I had to install Google Chrome), and changing my password was a 3-support-ticket affair.

Bottom line is stay away from these guys. Now that I need to create a new account, I’ll be doing so elsewhere.

I don’t know what everyone’s whining about customer service for- the guy got my server up in under 8 hours (And bare in mind I ordered the server at a ridiculous time at night).

So far so good and I’d recommend it. I’m quite certain a great number of these are trolls on here just seeking a little bit of food from the masses to nibble on and breed with. Every place you go has problems and pros. Sooo… Bare with it, the price is incredible, so that’s another thing I’m confused with. I’m quite happy to pay 7something and chill out with my playthrough pals.

I’ve yet to figure out a few of the control issues (permissions not granting uploads) but I’m sure its on FAQ or they’ll answer it in a timely fashion. People have lives, everyone. Relax.

Thanks Servercraft!

The support was great! They have always responded within 24 hours, and they always fixed what was needed. The performance was good enough for me, and the control panel (McMyAdmin but also the FTP acces) was the best I have seen so far.
Only the lack of servers in Europe made me switch, but except for that Servercraft is great, and I would recommend them to everyone!

Horrible Price (1-5 players for $8? What a joke)
Good Website (set up really well)

Servercraft was the first server I rented for my friends last summer (2011). Back then the support was horrible. I will admit it did take days to get help and wasnt very good. And the pricing was really bad. 15 dollars for 8 people. Not very good and the uploading wasnt very good and was kinda dissapointed. Guys reading this… That was last year I rented a server with them for 5 people for 8 bucks. Guys this was the best deal I have ever taken. And the support is amazing now. I got a response in 2 minutes after sending an email. And the file editing system is pretty good exept to upload a folder it needs to be zipped. I do recommend this to people for the price and the simplicity of this. All they need to do is put in mcmyadmin 2 and they will be good to go. Always up never went down.

I used Servercraft for one year, with a small user base (never more than 6 players at a time) and a moderate load of Bukkit plugins. Performance was never an issue. Downtime was minimal and usually seemed to be caused by software issues. The support team was responsive (always answered within a day) with good communication skills and an flexibility (I asked them to do a few things that weren’t yet possible from the Web UI.)

McMyAdmin is a solid web frontend, with good user management, a handy chat feature, and easy automation for backups and console commands (although integration with CraftBukkit could use some work.) Improvements have been regular, and I’m sure they’ll continue to work out the remaining kinks.

I haven’t shopped around, but I’d still be comfortable recommending the service.

I have always had Servercraft, and it was my first option when getting it. To start out, I get responses on my support tickets in less than 24 hours, not sure what other people are talking about. No FTP access, yes puts a few things to the limit, but I really couldnt care less, its super easy to upload plugins too, and you can manage them with a free Mcmyadmin panel! I never have downtime, but sometimes when it crashes I have to submit a ticket for the staff to restart it. Thats a hassle sometimes, but overall I love this host!

I used this host for 13 months and never had a single problem with them. There was the occasional hiccup with the server that a quick reboot would fix without issue. I can’t speak to the features because I used it only for a very simple server, but everything I used work perfectly with no noticeable lag at all. The support was always fast for me – I usually had a response within an hour. The price was a little below what most of the other hosts I considered were charging which ended up being the selling point, but over-all I’m very happy with the host.

Support: Total crap. Takes 1 or 2 days to respond. Horribly slow.
Features: McMyAdmin is amazing, but with the FTP that doesn’t give you root access and limits you on mostly everything, it ruins it.
Performance: I had the 1 GB package and I can say that I had no lag at all.
Price: Not worth 30$ per month.
Website: Was very professional looking.
Uptime: My server crashed all the time and whenever I could actually connect to the website to submit a support ticket, it would take 2 days to get my server back up!!
Overall: Horrible host.

Had this server for a month and hated it. Constant down time – took 48 hours to set it up and every time we’d submit a ticket it would take days for them to get back to us and usually it wasnt very helpful what they said of if they got our server back up it would crash again not too long after. Also their website would constantly go down so we wouldnt be able to sign in to restart the server after it crashed on us. I was recommended this server site by a friend of mine and my services was not nearly as good as hers was. Needless to say I wouldn’t recommend this site to anyone.

The staff responds VERY fast and never seem to be off work (i’ve had replies at 11pm on Sundays). I honestly have not seen much down time, and the McMyAdmin panel is pure genius when it comes to managing plugins, console and game settings. I recommend Servercraft if you want a reliable server with flexible pricing options and a staff that’s always ready to help.

This place was absolutely friendly. I’ve had servers elsewhere that would take AGES to get back to me when a problem arised. The but the servercraft tech support was had me up and running within a few minutes, even on holidays. The best I had in a long time. More server hosting need to be more like these guys.

The pricing was well managed. and EXTREMELY easy to upgrade if need be.

If people need a minecraft server, I always recommend servercraft.

Well… I started out with Servercraft in about June of 2011, it’s now January 2012. I hadn’t ever looked at other server hosts too terribly much and was ignorant as to what other hosts had to offer. I must say, I was happy at the time, and though sometimes I got upset with support and their failure to solve problems, I was overall a happy person.

Now that I look at other hosts after deciding that $30 a month for 1200MB of RAM wasn’t quite a fair price, I’ve been looking around and realized that other server hosts have MUCH better price to RAM ratios. Compared to other server hosts, Servercraft is practically poo.

Overall, they’re not terrible, but there’s better options elsewhere.

then it would be ok.
with bukkit no, McMyAdmin sucks only half supports plugins like permissionsbukkit (bukkitpermissions? whatever)
overall im happy with the service I have got but after a month im moving onto a different hoster gonna try orca-host 11.99 for 1 GB its cheaper! FTP access sucks, can’t change the world for Maps! Support could be better. Multi-Craft really sounds promising atthis point!

Server is always down. Takes about a week to hear back from them when I e-mail them about it. Have been trying for months to get a custom banner image to be put onto the server. Most folders have limited access which makes it so you can’t edit certain plug-ins.

Okay, well being that they only charged me once for some reason, I can’t complain, I have had this server since June 2011. Support for me is about 1 day or 2. The pricing otherwise had it not been free for the past 6 months would have been dung to pay. Not that great, I would go with something else.

Support) Crap. They take UP TO 3 days to reply to a simple ticket.

Features) FTP is limited, you can only upload a file at a time and there is a file size limit!

Performance) When I FINALLY got the server running, the lag was insane! I installed Ptweaks, but it was really bad. I could barly chop a tree down because of the block lag!

Price) Avante hosting, DaddyCheese, Multiplay, EVLGaming, and others charge around HALF the price for better servers.

Uptime) about 60%…

Please, if you want your own server, GO ELSWHERE! I can reccomend Avante, they are amazing, they are half the price,a nd they are LAG FREE SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY PLAY MINECRAFT!

I’ve been using servercraft for about 3 months now, and I have to say that I’m not impressed. First of all, they lack FTP support or root access, making uploading plugins painful. Also, after a few weeks, my McMyAdmin started crashing, leaving the server down. Their costumer support is painfully slow on top of that, taking at least a day for them to do a simple McMyAdmin restart. My tier 4 server was not worth the $22 per month, with constant lag, especially with bukkit. For great hosting, go elsewhere!

Servercraft provides everything that they promise on their website. The built in MCadmin is a very easy to use tool and provides easy server and bukkit plugin management. The support tickets that I put in had a response within 24 hours, usually within 1-4. Server uptime was constant, my only complaint about the service is very rare server lag. Overall a great service with fantastic customer support.

I signed up with Servercraft and was more then happy with the service.

I found the server stability for a Tier 4 server to be wonderful (me and my friends never fell on any down time) and lag issues were almost none existent most of the time.

If I had one complaint it would be that both times I used customer support it took over 24 hours to respond (first time for a lost password with password retrieval not working and second time for cancellation of service as moved to a friends server).

All and all if I was going to open my own server again I would use Servercraft as I was pleased with what I got.

Well for the last few months my brother and I have been renting 2 tier 5 servers from servercraft. I was a bit worried when I registered and payed due to all the bad posts about servercraft. But I registered and payed and since then they have been great! They had the servers ready in a day (A day because I live in Australia and when I registered it was nightime in the US) Out of all the six months there was only one hour of downtime which would have been in the middle of the night for them. Also their servers are extremely high quality, They provide you with McMyAdmin Professional and FTP file transfer. They are very friendly in their support emails and they’re always quick to respond. I would like to thank servercraft for being the best minecraft server hosts out there.(They also now do dedicated servers as well) I will give them 5/5 Smiley Faces :) :) :) :) :)

Well… I was with ServerCraft for about 2 months. Customer support was extremely slow, poor uptime, control panel kept crashing. However I got through with the lack of features and support.

BUT. I went back to ServerCraft recently and it had completely changed. The server was constantly crashing and I was told it was because my package wasn’t designed for 24/7 use. What? Pathetic excuse. They were reluctant to give me my refund and I didn’t get a response for my problems after waiting for 6 days.

They also lack a bunch of common features such as FTP, Jar Uploading and a control panel/file manager which works.

I would have said that they are an alright host, but now, no way. Highly not-recommended.

Servercraft is mediocre. They promise a lot but fail to deliver on the basics. Their servers couldn’t handle a full server of mine, even when I limited they players to 8 at a time. My server would crash constantly, and would lose data even when I made saves every five minutes.

Price seemed like a good deal, but with the poor performance, it’s hard to recommend. There are simply better providers out there for the price.

I liked the features that MyMCAdmin (or whatever it was called) provided, but Servercraft does NOT allow you FTP access to your server files, which I quickly found to be crippling.

I can’t complain about the service, but it wasn’t stellar, either. Tickets took 2-6 hours to get a response.

Ultimately, if they cleaned up their service, Servercraft could be good. But right now, they are not, which is why I no longer use them.

Servercraft is a all round great server host, their support services are exeptional. My servercraft server has no lag and has never had any downtime since we’ve been running.

I suggest servercraft for anyone wanting to buy a server!

I recommend ‘servercraft’ to everyone, The price may not be the lowest and they may not be the best to some but I consider them the best hosting I have ever used. Firstly Support; Support never took over a day to respond (Fact for me). I requested help and they got back to me right away. Features; The control panel is simple yet usable for the common computer ignorant person. Staff performance was user friendly and that is a quality some company s lack. The website was understandable and user friendly, The setup takes a day but for the quality of server I was receiving it didn’t bother me. Their up time was 99.9 percent of the time for me and the only time my server was down was due to a plugin on my server crashing it.

If I had to rate out of all the hosts I have had to use I would give this 8/10.

Not that many features, but support is prompt as anything, and the payment is easy. The price is a bit steep compared to others, especially for the amount of RAM you get, but I’ve had no problems with them. I’d suggest using them for small servers, they’re rarely down. Their website can be a bit confusing to find support, but it’s easy to use.

Servercraft is a decent minecraft host. The customer support is professional, though they can be slow. They are overpriced, but their servers are almost always up, and have strong CPUs. The website is pretty bland and plain. Overall I would give servercraft a 2.5/5

At first, it seemed like a great deal. Then after a while, things starting to stink.

We started out with 3 people making the main spawn and such. Every 10 minutes or so, the server would just crash. We sent a ticket, and it took forever for them to respond. They responded the most ridiculous solution. Permission is causing it. Uh, no it isn’t? If permissions weren’t working right, they would of never loaded up at all. 99% of their logic behind awnsers was invalid. They had NO idea what they were doing. Worst support ever.

Price was not worth the crap we went threw. The support made the price go down to 2$ a year (in what we thought it was worth).

The website made everything look great. Little did we know it was covered in lies…

Up time, like i said, stunk.

Features was nice. I liked the MyMcAdmin. However, some of the things were a little confusing. SSH would of helped, or FTP as well. Considering the backups only backed up the world, instead of the entire server, it was hard testing plugins.

A friend of mine had a Servercraft server, and when we had a falling out I decided to get my own server. It took a couple days to set up, and when it did get set up, only I could get on.

My other two friends (who are also co-owners) couldn’t get on at all; the other two couldn’t even connect to the server. We sent a ticket that day (about the 3rd or 4th day since we paid for it).

It took a day to get a reply, where the guy said it might be because the server didn’t log them out properly so could he please have their usernames. The had never even connected, not once, so we highly doubted that was the problem. We gave them the names anyway.

The next day it wouldn’t let me on either. And we get a response the day after that saying we were using the wrong IP address. To me, it just seemed like they changed the IP on us since I could get on the day before, (I did not go to any other multiplayer server after that so the original IP was still in the slot) but I couldn’t get on now.

We could all get on after that, but once the plugins got loaded, even with only 3 people, it was slow and laggy. Not unplayable, but certainly not anywhere near good. We stayed with them for the full month after playing email tag with that support guy (who was nice, at least).

tl;dr
Support:
-Laughably slow

Features:
-Alright, I suppose. I liked the MyMCAdmin.

Performance:
-Slow and laggy, had a couple of rollbacks, but I didn’t do much ’cause of the lag

Price:
-Kind of expensive considering what you’re getting, and what the service is like

Website:
-Neat, clean, informative, and professional. All in all, the best thing about this host.

Uptime:
-It took a while to get up, but we didn’t have very much downtime for the month we were renting from them. It could also be because none of us were on often enough to notice the downtime.

In the end:
We ended up moving to Daddy Cheese Hosting. It’s WAY better. Save yourself the money and headaches. Go find a server host where they know what they’re doing.

I started with them for a while. For the first month they where good. Then when I started getting people joining our server things went downhill.

-Support takes 1-2 days to respond, and they will usually just respond with a question, which would take a further 1-2 days for a responce. Our server would quiet often be down for 3-4 days at a time.

-My paypal ONCE rejected a charge from them for some un-known reason and they instantly shut down my subscription. They did not send my emails, or ask me what was going on, just closed my account. In order to get my server back, I had to sign up for a NEW subscription, they wouldn’t just re-activate it!

-Server would crash alot. Kicking everyone off and forcing us to re-log. And then I had to go re-boot MyMcAdmin page.

I will never go with them again nor recommend it to ANYONE.

Worst customer experience ever.
And I work for a Telco!

I LOVE my servercraft server. I suppose the reason people don’t like it is because it has been updated and people haven’t tried it since or they got the lower tier server. I have tier 4, and I haven’t had many issues with contacting them. Sure, it takes about 3 – 8 hours depending on what time I post, but for true support, it’s pretty good. They always have the anwer to my question and I haven’t had any complaints. The only issue with the whole server is that even though I have 1GB of ram on my tier, after having 4 or 5 people (recommended 20 on their chart) it lags bad. Overall, if it’s just you and your friends, it’s worth it. If it’s a public server with 50-100 or more people, get a higher tier or look at redstone hosting or someone else.

We used this server host twice. The first time, it was great. No server problems, everything installed without a hitch, never had to deal with the ticket system.

However, after a brief hiatus, we returned to find that things had definitely changed for the worst. Immense lag, daily evening downtime (lots of weekend downtime as well). We had problems installing plugins, saving server properties in the control panel (the one redeeming feature of this poorly maintained server), and none of our tickets were responded to.

Finally I cancelled the service after the fifth day, and fortunately I was credited back the money. Unfortunately, my e-mail is still being bombarded by their ticket system, asking for survey reviews for unanswered questions.
I have since gone to Beastnode, where their support always responds within an hour or two, and our problems are resolved very quickly.

Terrible Server Host, everyone get sfrustrated and leaves because of the Lag/Downtime/rollbacks.
There can be every little ppl online, and it would still crash,a nd cause rollbacks.
sometimes the server will be down for days without any notice,
customer support is Very bad, they answered 2 tickets, and when they were trying to fix the nodees, the just reset to default for me to start over, without any support. Now they dont respond to Tickets i send.
Everyday the sever goes down about 10-20 times, with rollbacks. Mcmyadmin doesnt even reboot itself.

when 10 ppl are online, in a 16 slot server there is 20 second chat lag,m and block placement lag.

When i first started it ran fine, untill the 10 day warenty was up, then it went to poo

Servercraft was my first Minecraft host, and I only used them because my friend used the same host. That was before I discovered this website and listing of other hosts. Long story short, they’re horrible. Avoid them. Here were my issues:

1) Customer support was slow, it would take 3-4 days to get tickets answered.

2) No FTP. If you want to upload a lot of files, such as a specialized plugin or a world, you have to submit a ticket. Then see see (1).

3) Server instable. I had frequent crashes, losing 10-30 minutes of work, every time two people were too far away from each other on the map. This is with two players on a 8 slot server. The response on the ticket to this was “disable bukkit”, which we rely on.

4) No instant setup. Weird because most of the other hosts have it.

5) Expensive.

With that said, here is the good part: They refund your payment within 7 days if you aren’t satisfied, and I took advantage of this.

I started out with them in march 2011. At first it was really good, but then it slowly got worse. Tickets were responded too quickly at first, and now I have have to wait for sometimes more then a week for a response, and even get some procrastination responses for the more complex tickets. During the time I was waiting for the ticket my server was down (broken), and I was fed up with waiting so I cancelled my service and switched to beastnode. One thing I really liked about servercraft was their McMyadmin and file manager. I never had any lag problems with this host.

This is an utter crap host. Their support S.U.C.K.S. They take DAYS to respond to any ticket you submit. When they do, it’s just a canned one liner response.

Expect your server to crash, and for it to take then 2 days or more to respond to your pleas for help when there’s nothing you can do on your end to fix it. Expect lag, downtime, and constant headaches. DON’T expect them to answer you when you ask for support, since they only respond to tickets about 50% of the time from my experience. DON’T expect them to update their website with pertinent info (The current ‘news’ post says that Minecraft 1.7 is being released and not to upgrade to it yet since there’s no Bukkit build to support it… how long has that been out now? A month?

Do yourself a GIANT favor. For the same money, you can go get a server with Beastnode (formerly GSVerse) which is the #1 ranked host on this site. I moved my server there from Servercraft last night… and I’m amazed at the difference.

My experience with servercraft hasn’t been the greatest but it hasn’t been the worst. Their support usually isn’t very good and the time it takes for them to respond is usually within 2 – 6 days which is a ridiculous amount of time. The features are fine with McMyAdmin but the fact that half of the time when you are trying to get a plugin installed, you have to send them a ticket with the plugin and wait 1 – 4 days for them just to do it if it is a bigger plugin. The performance isn’t too bad but sometimes it lags with just 2 people. The price is pretty awful because I was doing the 2nd tier which is 8 people for 15$ a month but I’ve seen at least 2 other website where the price is half for the same deal and more. The website is decent. It tells you prices and it isn’t too hard to navigate. The only stupid thing is that you have to make a completely new account just to get customer support. The uptime usually is pretty good and the server is up most of the time as I haven’t experienced any crashes yet.

I got this because it’s the first to show up in Google when searching for a host. I figured it would be the best, but it turned out to be quite a letdown.

Here were my issues:

1) Tickets took 3-12 (yes, 12) days to answer. One ticket never got answered. Another got closed for no reason when I was asking why a certain feature was not available to me.

2) I submitted a ticket to upload IndustrialCraft, which the features list SPECIFICALLY lists as a supported mod. Well, after 4 days someone took the ticket and responded, saying it was installed. I tried it out and it wasn’t working. I submitted a ticket and about 3 days later someone told me they didn’t install it because it was no longer in development. I don’t see why this matters, since I gave them a working jar and it works fine in my private server. That was when I quit.

3) Can only submit up to 100mb files on their file manager. For bigger files you need to submit a ticket, and that is a problem. You will need to shut off your world for several days to transfer your large map.

4) Performance was not good. Better on my own machine. And I only have like 4 people on max at a time.

5) Site is not helpful. Knowledge base has obvious solutions or they are very short and undescriptive.

6) Did not have all listed features, such as Public folder and mod support for IndustrialCraft.

7) In general, slow customer service. Took my server 3 days to get set up. No weekend service.

8) Very little flexibility. They do most of the work for you with all the ‘helpful’ services like McMyAdmin, but ultimately that leaves no flexibility for doing lots of stuff you want to do, like modding.

9) No direct access to the server jar file.

There are better services out there for cheaper.

Poor performance, lots of downtime, and their customer support is abysmal to nonexistent. Canceled after a week of headaches and help desk tickets that took days to answer, and some that never were. Do not do business with these people, and help spread the word to dissuade other current and prospective customers from handing their money to these fools.

It took Servercraft 32 hours to process my refund. This alone should tell you that Servercraft is a fly-by-night, good for nothing, completely unprofessional outfit.

Their support staff are also inept. While taking advantage of how long it was taking them to cancel my account to double check for any files I should have downloaded and missed, I discovered the reason my server had gone offline a couple days ago – they improperly installed the modified server.jar I had given them (and tested at home beforehand) and never brought the server back into service or rolled it back. It took them two days to tell me to package my own .jar file, four days to attempt and fail to install it, they never warned me or updated the ticket to say they were going to attempt to install it, and when they failed, they just left it as-is.

Servercraft? More like Servercrap. Beastnode mops the floor with these clowns and I’m much happier with them now.

I asked them to help install the planes mod, like there website said they would, i got told a WEEK later that the up to date planes files were out of date so they couldn’t install them. so after i found this website, which is great BTW, i canceled my servercraft account and it only took them an hour to cancel it for me. i think that is sad that you get faster service to cancel then to help install a mod. and i didn’t give them any marks because they didn’t even earn the 1 mark.

All I can say is DO NOT USE THIS SERVER HOST. They are absolutely terrible. Their support is slow and non-personal. The server performance is the worst, I purchased a 20 slot server only to find even when one player was online there was lag !!! When i asked about this they responded saying “Our recommended figures are not for servers that install plugins, since they consume a large amount of RAM”. So in other words unless you plan to create a vanilla server expect MASSIVE lag issues.

If you are looking for a server host then i would HIGHLY recommend taking a look at Pigsaddle. They have been an absolute god send for me compared to this crap which ServerCraft offer.

It’s been 24 hrs and I haven’t heard from Servercraft since paying for server space. Other than a very plain “receipt”, I have no information on whether the transaction ever took place or not. To be fair, I have never rented server space before, this may be normal. As of right now I feel uneasy, maybe they will follow through, maybe not.

Rented their Tier 2 service several days ago. I live in Rolla, MO (close to Saint Louis). We have a 10Mb connection at home and the server was lagging terribly, duplicating blocks and teleporting people. Their customer service took 24 hours to send a canned response. They did refund my money though, so kudos to them for at least doing that.

This server is incredibly unsatisfactory and caused me and my friends lots of grief and frustration. Their customer support was close to non-existent and when they did try to fix things, two days later, more problems became prominent.

Their horrible excuse for server support made me want to play Fortress Craft, because at least there is no lag on there, unlike our server for a whole month.

In conclusion, this server sucks more than a 2 dollar whore.

The server shutdown unexpectedly and I was not able to start it up again. I sent a ticket and they still haven’t replied yet. They replied to my ticket that I sent a few hours ago which had high priority. I requested a refund from them, I do not recommend this host for anyone because the customer support is slow.

I tried signing up with servercraft.co last night, and it said address info didnt match on my debit card. twice. so the order was “declined” yet i got charged and have no account with them. I’ve been waiting for about 12 hours to hear a reply from them so i can get my money back. i’ve pretty much decided to go with another host at this point because they’ve charged me twice, won’t reply, and i don’t even have an account with them to start hosting my server for my wife and friends and I. not happy with the initial experience i’ve had with them.

My experience with servercraft has been awful. I have had frequent, LENGTHY server downtime. Support is awful, and unbelievably slow. It seems the only way to get immediate action out of them is to send in a ticket in which you complain about the quality of service and threaten to leave. My “normal” tickets get answered a day or two later (if they even answer, several never got a reply) but my “this is unacceptable, fix it now or I’m leaving” tickets generally get results within the hour. I’d keep looking. They are not a reliable host, and the downtime is driving away my players.

Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 13 Thumb down 4

In terms of connection there was no problem, but there were 3 problems that I did not like particularly (Mayb it’s just me).

First minor problem- Their FTP access is not user friendly. Filesize limit and 1 file at a time

Second major problem – The McMyAdmin console when down a few times. First it was an hour but server was still running. Next day hald a day the console was down togather with the server. There was no live support and their ticket support was slow.

Third problem – The server took almost exactly 24 hours to setup and as said before support was about the same timing

Recently bought a server yesterday, its setup and running, support takes 10 hours plus to reply to your ticket, commands dont work and cant upload plugins
