We want to share a FAQ we did up as lately we’ve been suggesting customers move their Minecraft Hosting services to our VPS Hosting. As more people understand what our VPS Hosting provides for them, we hope to grow our VPS Hosting service and also spread knowledge of our services.
Why would I want to migrate my Minecraft Hosting to VPS Hosting?
– You gain the freedom to install voice servers like Teamspeak.
– Install other games when you are bored or need a break from Minecraft. Or just about any other software you want like website software.
– Get your own dedicated resources to push your server to the limits.
What is VPS Hosting?
VPS hosting is a type of hosting that uses Virtual Private Servers. Although the websites/softwares/games are hosted on the same physical machine, VPS allows each user to be fully independent as if each were on its own separate machine with their own dedicated server resources. Users are given a control panel along with additional details so they may have full control over the VPS with FTP and SSH.
Yes, our VPS Hosting prices per GB are the same as our Minecraft Hosting. You would be moved to the same priced one unless you requested to move to a different plan.
Do I need to learn anything different? I do not know how to use SSH.
You don’t need to do anything different than you do now. We will help by doing the entire move for you. Then in the future if you have any issues, you would just let us know and we can do it all for you.
What will change on my server? Will I lose anything?
The only thing that will change is your IP. Since we will be doing the move for you, nothing will be lost.
What is the downside?
The VPS Hosting contains it’s own control panel. VPS Hosting though does not include any Minecraft server control panel. We though can install Multicraft (the control panel we use now for our Minecraft Hosting) but their free license only allows up to 10 players online at once. So if you ended up wanting more player slots, you would need to purchase your own key. We would be able to install your key if you decided to get one.
How long does the move take?
The average move time is 1 hour. This involves installing java, php and other software on your VPS. We then would move your current server files to the VPS. Once we finalize we are done, we will let you know via a support ticket.
How do I request the move?
Just submit a ticket via our support page requesting the move to VPS Hosting.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to submit a ticket and we would be happy to help.
