I did this before.
The reason we bought a properly hosted service was because you don't have enough bandwidth most probably.
I worked out you need approx 1mbps per person UPLOAD to make it work.
We could get 10 of us on at once (with pretty hard lagging), but 3 were LAN'd, so it was actually only 7 over the connection (we had about 5 mbps upload).

What are the requirements for hosting a (proper) server?

ie. what do you need?

I was able to serve 5 people with 2mbps upload without problems (only lagging on initial connection where it loads a lot of chunks at once).

If you want to do dedicated hosting, you need a lot of RAM (I guess 2 GB or more), sufficient Disk space, an up-to-date linux (or windows) with the latest Java VM und at least a "decent" single core CPU. Minecraft is really a hardware hog which makes it's hosting so expensive :/

I want more upload >_<

I have a Intel core i3 CPU, http://ark.intel.com/products/46473/Int ... e-3_06-GHz), this one.

Windows up to date

4 GB of RAM

tons of disk space.

I have been running it for my friend and I and it's been doing well, no problems at all, friend says it too, gonna ask him. Maybe tonight or tomorrow we can try and get a lot of people on and test it :-)

(ps: it's gonna take some time, but I'm convincing my mom in buying a computer to use as a server for her work, gonna get a good one then and probably host a server on it, might take a few months though ^^)

@H4ndy: You can do it with less (like your example) if everyone stays close to each other, but if people go off an explore or go into different chunk regions you need about 1mbps each.

@Everyone: I have found decent dedicated server hosting (a linux box you can stick whatever on).
However it works out as £25/month, I can't afford that on my own.

Monthly donation would probably work out best. How much interest is there?
