Morning,

I am after having my own Minecraft server and was wondering what kind of options there are. Is it worth buying my own server and running it or are they still very expensive?

I would like to be able to run a couple of servers (1 vanilla and 1 modded) to play around with them. If buying a server is too expensive, I'll start looking around for rental packages as a 8-10 man server is pretty cheap from what I recall.

Any advice appreciated, thank you

I think Treb runs one already.

He's the man in the know.

To be fair I have been looking into it all day and I think I may just rent a server until I buy a new pc.

Love Minecraft to bits and would love a server though I don't know hardly anyone who would play. Just looking at mods for it with the Feed the Beast Modpacks

If you ever need help with your server I can help you.
I never bought or rented a server but I did host my own, I used a lot of plugins on it but no mods.
I still play minecraft but only when I don't have internet and I mostly play on my own server and just build in Creative and with worldedit.
So if you ever need help with the server or a plugin just message me

I wouldn't be so sure about that

i have 2 running on a spare hardware at work, 16 cores and god-knows how much RAM.......which reminds me, I need to check if they are still up. 
I have no clue about sizing for minecraft,  I just use what i can my hands on
