I hear Chris always plugging Godaddy.com and I am wondering if any of the options would be relevant to host a Minecraft server. I'm on a low budget as I'm only 16.

I've used BeastNode in the past and found their pricing and customer service to be very reasonable.

One of the bad things about BeastNode is that they keep getting ddos'ed and that has been effecting a lot of their servers recently.

Up until recently I've been using multiplay for my host. What's the server for? If it's for just you and some mates and you have a half decent computer use that and set up a bukkit server. It's not too hard once you get your head around the port forwarding.

Lots of tutorials on YouTube for it. Must admit I went to multiplay because I couldn't be bothered with the hassle but my budget decreased so I went back to hosting my own.

I personally use CubedHost. They have damn solid servers and very good customer support. :p

A long as you're just going to get a small amount of traffic (I've reached about 6 people max on my laptop), you can host a Minecraft server from your home PC, they are wonderfully simple to set up, especially vanilla, but if you want to add more custom items such as plugins, I'd recommend running a Bukkit server. However the one major problem with hosting on your home PC is your Internet provider. In order to host a Minecraft server, you will need to FORWARD Port 25565, if you don't know how to do this, call your service provider, don't bother looking for yourself first unless you definitely know that your router supports port forwarding, and you know exactly how to go about it. If all else fails, an alternative is Logmein Hamachi, which basically creates a network between PCs, this means that people will be able to connect to your Minecraft server without the need for any port forwarding, however, spaces are limited in a Hamachi network, especially with the free option only supporting up to 5 computers, but as I said, if you're just looking to host a server for you and your friends, this should not be too much of a problem, and it's cheaper than paying for a host (I mean you can't beat free, right?)
