Some current stats on Multiplay:

Cost: 7.75 /month (69 DKK)
Slots: 8 players
Memory: 600 MB

Perfection servers stats, 6 players:

Cost: 6.97 USD/month (38 DKK)
Slots: 6 players
Memory: 600 MB

Perfection servers stats, 12 players:

Cost: 11.97 USD/month (66 DKK)
Slots: 12 players
Memory: 1024 MB

"Features: 1 GB Dedicated RAM, Full FTP Access, RAMDisk Storage, Ready for Vanilla/Craftbukkit and virtually all plugins, Free On-Demand Backups, 24/7 Support, Multicraft Control Panel, Instant Setup."

For comparison, Multiplay with 12 players and 1024 MB RAM costs 13.55/month (121 DKK).

If we take only those stats into account, Perfection servers is better than Multiplay. However, I also want to compare their network speeds, CPUs etc. before switching, and I also need to consider how they are to manage compared to Multiplay. And going on one perfection server with many more slots than Blacraft, possibly a server located in a different place, and completely different plugins, I don't think that is a convincing way to compare them. If I'm unsure, we could try a test month on Perfection where both servers are up I guess. I would of course choose the option for 12 players if we would move server.

Wouldn't we be able to just move the plugins we have over?

I think we would, they probably let you use FTP which is the thing I've been using for plugins recently, but Multiplay also lets you enable some plugins through their interface and some of them I don't really know how function or how to set up because of this. I guess it would all work if we copied the entire world folder by FTP with all the plugins, then everything should be the same.

Thanks for making this insightful reply on my behalf.

So, when are we having the test server up?

Also, what about plugin availability or is it still the clanforge thing or whatever?

There is no plan to test or switch currently.

Plugins I'm pretty much managing via FTP only now, so it shouldn't make a difference.
