Multiple Servers
Multiple Servers / Unlimited Slots

We provide cheap Minecraft Server Hosting services. Through our Control Panel you can set up an unlimited number of game servers with an unlimited number of slots on one VPS server. We offer VPS servers with a restricted amount of resources: memory, CPU, disk space. Servers seamlessly support a large number of players, as long as there is enough RAM and CPU power. Plan descriptions only give an approximate number of players the server can accommodate. In reality, this number can be more or less, depending on the plugins and mods installed on your server.

Website and Forum

You get an already installed and configured website and forum that allows to monitor the number of online players on the server. Later they can be replaced with yours by FTP.

    This site's maneuverability and user friendly platform makes it easily good choice for someone who doesn't want to waste their time running a server on their own PC. The prices, compared to value of other Minecraft hostings is outstanding, no other site I visited could come close to what's found here on ScalaCube. I was recommended ScalaCube by my brother who also bought a server from them, and now I will be recommending it to my friends as well.

    I'm actually the developer for this server and I have used ScalaCube before on my own and others servers. I have always been able to run servers successfully and lag free with your service. I kept trying to convince the people I am currently developing for to switch from another Minecraft hosting to this but they finally did after the server was getting DDOSed.

    Scalacube’s support team is amazing. They take around 3-4 hours to respond to tickets and can find solutions to nearly everything. I love the fact you can run multiple Minecraft servers off one machine for such an amazing deal. This will always be my go to host for servers!

Ultra-Low Latency

Just because you are playing Minecraft and not a competitive FPS or RTS game, it doesn’t mean that ping doesn’t matter. The lower your ping is, the smoother gameplay will be, with the service responding quickly to events triggered in the client. Bad latency, resulting in a high ping, can lead to gameplay becoming difficult or simply impossible. If you are playing online, then latency is one of the major things you need to keep in mind.

Our Minecraft hosting has provided a huge number of Minecraft servers to our happy customers. We ensure that every customer is matched to the perfect server location, so that latency is kept as low as possible. We offer a number of locations where your server can be hosted, and we will be adding more over time. Our internal network has been optimised to make sure server traffic is prioritised and to keep latency as low as it can possibly be. Our customer service team is always available via web chat to help you solve any network problems you have, or to give you advice on how to lower your ping.

Of course, latency is often caused by the player's local internet connection or the hardware they are using. Minecraft is quite lightweight in its hardware requirements, and ping times should not be affected by CPU bottlenecks. If your PC or laptop seems to be causing high latency to your Minecraft server, our customer service team might be able to give you some help and advice on how to solve this problem.

We are experienced in provisioning Minecraft servers of all sizes. We can provide you with a fairly small server now, then scale it up as your needs expand. Every Minecraft server, no matter the size, benefits from being on our robust, high-performance data backbone. We have used a modified control panel, which has advanced functionality yet is very user-friendly. From this control panel, you can access the server configuration, and you can also perform maintenance and server administration. All of this happens in your web browser, with plenty of online help and tutorials to get you started.

Overall, every Minecraft server we provide has been set up and optimised to run Minecraft smoothly, at low latency, with no lag spikes. However, as the number of players using your server grows, you may need to upgrade your server to provide additional hardware resources. Once again, our customer service team can give you advice about this.
