How we compare to popular hosts

We offer competitive price to performance based on single-thread rating. Why does this rating matter? Minecraft's main game functions such as entity and chunk ticking operate on a single-thread. We use hardware that excel in single-thread rating for this reason.

We used each competitor's best CPUs in comparison to our worst scoring one. The CPU listed for each competitor may or may not be what is received as a wide variety of hardware is used for each one.
Some hosts such as Bisect Hosting and MCProHosting are not fully transparent on the exact model of hardware they used. We used the best CPU given their undetailed specs to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Single thread scores were obtained by the PassMark Software for PC benchmarking.

Frequently Asked Questions

What version of Minecraft can I play on?

Our control panel allows you to run any Minecraft version provided that you use the right server JAR file. We have many of the most popular server softwares for different versions available on our control panel.

How much RAM do I need for my Minecraft server?

RAM usage varies on many factors such as the type of server you're playing (modded or vanilla), how many plugins and mods you install, and how many players are online. It's difficult to have an equation to calculate the amount of RAM your server will need since everyone's needs are different. We generally recommend 4 GB of RAM at a minimum for modern Vanilla with 2-5 people online. For all types of modpacks, we recommend at least 8 GB of RAM. Some modpacks may require more RAM. More players online at once would result in a need for more RAM. If you are unsure on which package to purchase, feel free to contact our support to get an estimate.

Can I use my existing world?

Yes! You can upload your existing world data via SFTP and continue gameplay on it as if nothing changed.

Can I upgrade my service if I need more resources?

Yes! Upgrades are available in the client area and are automatically applied upon payment. The amount to upgrade is based on a pro-rated difference between the unused time of your current plan and the cost to upgrade.

Do you limit player slots?

No. Your server is completely 100% yours to control. You can change your player slots to whatever you'd like.

Are your services better than hosts that offer "dedicated" resources?

This is tricky to answer concretely. Many hosts that "dedicate" resources achieve this by either CPU pinning Docker containers to specific thread numbers or simply allocating a CPU percentage to a server without overselling the whole node. These methods of dedicating resources certainly achieve better performance than hosts that cram as many people on a host node (overallocating/overselling) and sharing the CPU among many users. What exactly does STEL Hosting do? We assign each server with a CPU percent allocation in increments of 50% for every 2 GB of RAM. In a sense, this can be considered dedicated as all of our plans follow this allocation pattern and no server with the same amount of RAM will have more or less CPU allocation. As shown in our network status page, each full host node hardly averages 25%-30% total CPU utilization across all cores with the average across all cores being 10%-15% daily. We do not oversell our resources and as a result, there is plenty of CPU power to go around for you to experience what many advertise as "dedicated" hosting. The Linux kernel, like most modern operating systems, balances the CPU load from many processes to available cores very efficiently. If you'd like a more in-depth explanation on how we can guarantee performance without noisy neighbors, feel free to contact us.

I'd love to partner with STEL Hosting for my community or channels. Can I apply for a partnership?

We don't have an application for partnerships. However, we are open to discussing partnerships via e-mail or a support ticket.
