Better service for paid servers

Recommended Posts

I feel like servers that are using paid plans should be given better features, because the way minehut is currently trying to run any "professional" server is nearly impossible. I have a few suggestions for how to better optimize paid servers, and for all of these there'd be the potential to make it so certain features are only applicable to high enough paid plans, for example a 300 credits/day server has more perks (other than just RAM and player slots) than a 50 credits/day server.

1. Guaranteed slots: Seeing as minehut has recently been having an issue with their maximum capacity of server slots leaving many people waiting for quite a long time before a slot finally opens up so they can start theirs, I feel like there should be ~50-100 server slots that are reserved for paid plan servers, so anybody who is using a paid plan doesn't have to go through the same hassle of clicking the "Activate Server" button for 25 minutes before theirs finally starts up.

2. No charge if unused: I know this one almost certainly isn't going to happen seeing as there's very little benefit to minehut for it but I feel like users would appreciate minehut much more if it was. Basically just not charging the servers daily credit cost if it was online for less than 10 minutes. I especially feel like this should be the case now that server slots are being packed, so it feels pretty unfair to charge servers when they're literally incapable of starting. It's pretty simple, if minehut is unable to provide the service, then users shouldn't be charged for it. I know you can just say "Well if minehut is acting up just switch to a free plan then back to a paid one once there's more slots available" - but I feel like that's pretty unfair if you're checking on your server & minehut's downtime daily, which could be quite a struggle for some if they have school, a job, or just anything else to do and can maybe only be available on weekends- or what if they're on a vacation?

3. No automatic shutdown: This is one that would probably only be applicable to one of the much more pricey plans, but I feel like this is the only way that minehut could ever be considered a "professional server host" and that would be removing the feature that automatically shuts down your server if nobody is online for more than a few minutes. I feel like if minehut made this a feature for one of the more expensive plans then there'd be so much more reason to want to use that plan meaning more sales for minehut.

Now I know this seems like it'd just be screwing over the free servers, but honestly I think this is the only way minehut could ever grow from what it is right now. As it is in its current state, minehut is simply illegitimate for trying to make & grow any professional server. While it's great that it's such an easy to use server hosting (by far the best I've ever used in that regard)- that isn't great for minehut as a company seeing as the vast majority of the users are either on the younger side of what you might expect of a server owner, or just using minehut as a learning point to get experience with running a server before moving on to a better hosting service, neither of which are great for sales. Now I suppose I can't say for sure for minehut as I don't know any of their sales figures, and it be entirely possible that they're doing amazing right now with their sales and wouldn't want to change at all. However I can say that from a user perspective, making some of these changes would vastly improve my experience. Thank you to anyone willing to read through this entire thing, and I'd appreciate any feedback or even more suggestions on how minehut can improve in this regard.

feel free to complain to my vote!


I've been doing skript for 3 years. I don't find my self a "better" skripter or do competitions against others.

I just wish people can just get along & just help each out and be kind to one and another.

 

I have been hosting ValkNet for 4 years

ever since 2015 when i joined minehut around February or January.

 

I'm the owner of ValkyrieNetwork (known as ValkNet) | https://discord.gg/rPTYbQY

A great service that i provide for the minehut community!

+1 might as well remove free from server hosting because the current  server provider is obviously losing money providing free server hosting like this. As the time passed, I believe more that having a free server that is connected on a bungee does not make your server unique. The point I'm making is to remove the free hosting plan and make the plans; for example, 30 credits a day for 15 players, etc.

Could you explain your reasoning for your vote so I might be able to change my suggestion or explain it better?

Hey we're actually working on some of these, such as separate capacity for paid servers, 24/7, etc. I just don't have a time line yet, but yes!

That's awesome! Sorry for being pretty critical of minehut in my post, I just didn't want to sugarcoat anything to make sure my point got across effectively.

Nah it's fair. We just have a ton of new players and we don't have room for all of them right now, so it leads to a little lag, but we're working on making more room 🙂
