My own option is Mooshroom. Their minute rates are efficient at about £11 for 12 gamers. Although this might appear more costly than 's Beastnode preference, it is not, because it is not a real limit. It's basically an indicator. The truth is, for £11/month you receive 768MB of RAM, that is enough for 25 gamers on fundamental Bukkit Minecraft.
Mooshroom includes a great user interface with FTP support along with a 100mbit/s uplink/downlink. You receive limitless bandwidth too, and the overall game is saved with an SSD. It's fully handled, too.
Standing on Mooshroom for seven several weeks on "Tier 5" (that is 2GB of RAM), I have didn't have uptime issues. We run Tekkit Minecraft, which is much more RAM intensive, and frequently convey more than 35 gamers online.
(Like a footnote, Let me explain which i really intend on departing Mooshroom this month. We are switching to some VPS, using the idea being we are able to host a portal/website for the server. A VPS is much more costly, and you'll need a big enough userbase with regular donations to be able to allow it to be cost-effective. With simply 10 gamers, think before with one.)
