This host is fantastic. I have a 10 slot server for me and my friends to play on. It has had a couple of minutes of downtime, but you can’t expect %100 uptime anywhere. It has a reasonable price, and an easy to navigate control panel. I have not yet needed to talk to a tech support person, but that’s a good thing, it just proves how reliable they are.

I really like this service provider they are fast! People on my server that live in the UK said that it is still really fast. And for the pricing it is really cheap there is a 7 day free trial and the prices are the cheapest I could find! although the website seems to be lacking in content and a login system on the main website yet does have them on affiliated websites.

Terrible, had it for ONE day, and my account got suspend for griefing when I was setting up the spawn. I would NEVER even consider this provider. The prices may be fair, but the service, just not worth it.

Completely horrible support, it takes them forever to reply to simple questions. Horrible control over your servers, We can’t even update to an recommended bukkit release, When the RB Bukkit is released.
Their servers are on 1.0 while they should be on 1.0.1.

Several of my questions have still gone unanswered. Their minecraft support is a complete joke, Usually had to get support through another section.

Good pricing for the first two tiers, their third package doesn’t even make much sense. If you can’t afford other hosts and don’t care for having little control, then come here. Otherwise, save yourself the stress.

TIRED of looking for a POWERFUL host that won’t break the bank? PLUS ** CONTEST INSIDE**

As a server owner for Minecraft I know how hard it is to find a reliable host. I spent 3 months researching and comparing all the hosts out there. I tried out places like Brohoster and was considering trying jest servers or multiplay. Needles to say I was not happy with the options out there, most were upwards of $100 for a single month, with very little ram. I was ready to give up, when I saw an ad with prices that made my eyes pop out of my head.

It was for Minecrafthost.ca by BlackSun Inc. And not only were the prices to die for, but they offered an UNHEARD of FULL 21 DAY FREE TRIAL. I signed up for the largest free trial plan they had right away! I had an existing VPS that I was able to easily migrate over to BlackSun. Within the first week I was amazed at the latency and ping rates. We did stress tests with TNT and fire and the server held up beautifully. With people playing from all over the world and the amount of plug-ins we were using, I WAS AMAZED! I have been with them for almost 3 months now and I must say, BlackSun makes running a huge server virtually stress free.That’s something I have never experienced before and money can’t buy.

BlackSun and Minecrafthost.ca have just given you $500 more reasons to sign up for the best host provider out there. Free trials not eligible, must have a purchased server with BlackSun to compete. **Details at the bottom of this page.**

BlackSun operates state of the art Dell PowerEdge servers powered by multiple Hexacore Intel Xeon 2.13GH processors, in a clustered VMWARE environment. All servers utilize the fastest SAN drives available combined with systems to optimize maximum read/write times, so there is no read/write lag. The latest CentOS Linux operating system is enhanced for optimal software performance.

Project Clanilla is hosted by Minecrafthost.ca and BlackSun and needless have to say, we aren’t your typical server! Just being able to run everything we need is an accomplishment in itself, and Minecrafthost.ca made it look and feel easy!

We run 3 worlds that are ALL 6000×6000. We have over 110nplayers and their data being stored along with very memory extensive plug-ins like BigBrother. We run a total of 15 plug-ins all at once; many of them have data logs. ALL WORK BEAUTIFULLY! We couldn’t be happier with the overall performance and reliability of Minecrafthost.ca

Pros

-FACT: you can shop around for MONTHS AND MONTHS like I and thousands of other people did, or you can just look for yourself, as these prices CAN NOT BE BEAT and are the lowest for the most RAM out there BY FAR.

-BlackSun provides fast reliable connection little TO NO LAG AT ALL EVER, server up-time 99.9%, satisfaction guaranteed!

-21 FREE DAY TRIAL CANT BE BEAT, gives you almost a FULL month to decide if they are right for you, ONLY HOST IN THE INDUSTRY DOING THIS, which shows REAL customer DEDICATION as they want you to be happy before you buy.

-FULL FTP for easy upload and download of all your files and plug-ins. Easy backups and more!

-Optimized Java environment makes everything run smoother, and is honestly not offered by any other host out there.

-Fiber-optic network that’s part of two concentric fiber rings from Edmonton to Calgary, and Saskatoon to Winnipeg, allowing BlackSun to instantly route East or West depending on any network conditions, running on a Gigabit connection. THIS is the how we have people playing from all over the world with little to no connection issues.

Now is probably THE BEST time to sign up and purchase a server from BlackSun, as they are running an amazing contest, the likes of which I’ve never even heard of. Details at the very end of this page, INSANE PRIZES to be won. Free trials not eligible, must have a purchased server with BlackSun to compete.

MultiCraft control panel! Multicraft is specifically designed for Minecraft and makes for easier server management and overall better op/admin experience.

GREAT CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND SERVICE! Their friendly and knowledgeable support staff is always ready to assist you by phone, fax, email or even LiveChat. No problem too big or small, they will do their absolute best to help you and your server.

Auto updates the Bukkit version to the latest recommended build for you right away.

Virtually stress free, over all best experience I’ve ever had with a host/server provider.

Cons

-The auto update Bukkit feature may make your plug ins go down and then you need to either down grade or update all your plug ins.

**IT’S THE BLACKSUN SPACE/ASTROLOGY SCULPTURE CONTEST**

1st prize is an unheard of $500 CASH to the server owner of the winning sculpture

2nd prize is an crazy $250 CASH and 6 FULL months of 4GB server hosting FREE

3rd prize is an INSANE FULL FREE year of 4GB server hosting

Contest will run from AUG.1st-Sept.1st and will require participating servers to build ONE SPACE/ASTRONOMY RELATED SCULPTURE to be judged and voted on by the black sun judges. Judges will be coming in game to see the top 5-10 sculptures close up and in person to get a real feel for the amazing talent. Once you sculpture is ready for judging visit the entry forum and submit your screens @

http://minecrafthost.ca/mc-contest/contest-entry-form

Things that will be considered when judging will include, whether or not plug ins were used in the creation of said sculpture. (Someone who world edits something together will get a lower score than a legitimately gathered resource build would.) All logs are being monitored during contest. Any give commands will be seen in the logs and will go towards final consideration.

Size matters, bigger the better.

One build per server,server owner wins for their server.

Space astrology themed sculptures only please.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE

The server has virtually no lag at all. The plans are simple, make sense and are cheap. There is lots of information on their website. You have the best connection all over Canada and good connection for the rest of the world. Their support team is the best I’ve ever seen. I get fast accurate answers from Austin, in particular, and when I need something to be fixed, he does it within minutes of me asking.

BlackSun’s MinecraftHost.ca is definetly the best in Canada! Happy Canada Day, tomorrow!

Fast setup & easy support. As a member of a hosting provider team and developer, I give these guys a 5/5. They answer all emails within minutes (not kidding). Will upgrade when my server grows and continue service in the future!

These guys are really good. I’m not sure what the other people are complaining about, I run a 20 slot server and everything has been great. Their support is superb and the control panel and FTP work really well. I renewed for three months after my trial because everything went so well. I would recommend them to anybody!

I would recommend anyone considering using this service to reconsider. It may seem appealing with the cheap prices and 21 day trial however since the day I signed up I had nothing but issues. My server was set up instantly, but didn’t work properly, it was very buggy and I could barely play the game. It was completely down for the 2nd and 3rd days of the trial. day 4 seemed fine but I had no control over the server when i logged into the server management site. Well today i found out why.I logged in and found 2 randoms playing on my server. I was given a server that was already being used and paid for by someone else who did have full control over it. Good thing they offer a trial because I would never pay money for this horrible service

Good and fast tech support, for the first 20 days of gameplay 10 of my close friends really put the stress testing to their servers, after we starting progressing away from the spawn point we had in the game the server has had severe lag problems, even after removing all of the plugins we had running the server still runs laggy (unplayable). I would suggest buying the highest plan there is because with the other plans it’s only a matter of time before you MUST upgrade your plan. The first two plans really can’t be taken seriously. 1-10 players with 1GB isn’t nearly enough!

Great service. I cannot complain… They are the best of the best.

They have great support, there is very minimal lag, they answer EXTREMELY fast when asking for support, also the best thing is, is they have a free trial.. so you don’t have to pay and worry about something going wrong! Do the free trial, and see if you like it, and I can Guarantee that you will LOVE it.

drawback

May 9th, 2011    

server was “set up” instantly but was set up incorrectly probably due to their automated system. It wouldn’t work and it took 2 hours for some incompetent support rep to supply no help within 3-4 tickets. she then bailed on me as their support hours were closing and forced me to wait 1 whole day for the server to be just SET UP. the website has very little options for support and no real way to get any contacts. the panel support doesnt even work because the verification codes dont work for me on 3 browsers. terrible support overall. prices were the only thing that drew me into their services in the first place but not really worth it at that.

good tech support, I had a few q’s about ftp and they got back to me right away. I have about 4 friends trying out the service and its great. They have 3 week free trial offer before you have to pay. I think these guys are pretty cool. They are the only good hosts that I could find in Canada.
