    I have been asked if its possible to host minecarft as part of my reseller account?

    I may need help as likely need to install the software from a command line?

    Hello Guido,

    Reseller hosting plans is an shared hosting plan and I want to inform you that it wont be possible to host the Minecraft game on the shared hosting plans as it consumes high resources. It is strongly recommended to use a VPS hosting plans or Dedicated Servers to host such games for better user experience.

    Feel free to contact our support admins via live chat for an instant help.

    Best Regards,

    May I know the specific reason it would not be possible with shared server? As I know the minimum requirement for any minecraft game does not require huge resources : http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Hardware_requirements

    Just for a note; MineCraft eats RAM like there is no tomorrow; that’s the reason we don’t recommend shared hosting environment for MineCraft hosting.

    Hello Guido,

    You can go for a VPS or a Dedicated server, where you will have private platform and enough resources which will handle your games.
    You will also get the admin access of the server, so you can manage the resources the way you want. Please go through the below URLs ::

    1) http://www.bodhost.com/dedicated-ser...eb-hosting.php
    2) http://www.bodhost.com/linux-vps-hosting.php

    Secondly, all of our dedicated servers can be fully customized as per your requirements and VPS delivers best virtual machine server performance in addition to completely managed hosting support within highly optimized operational costs.

    Please go the server specs and let us know which option would you like to go for.

    Assuring you our best services always.

    Hello Rex,

    Thanks for the links, but I am not sure how much RAM will I exactly need. Paul said "MineCraft eats RAM like there is no tomorrow", so minimum how much RAM will I need to consider to start with?

    It will be few small instances. I guess one of your dedicated machine will do with good Intel processor.
