    1/24/2017 - Poll: New Server Host Location

    Post by Rattle189 on January 24th 2017, 7:24 pm

    Hey guys!

    Recently, our server host Serveromat has released 3 new available physical server locations for the server which is: Singapore, Japan or Australia. As you know, the server is currently hosted in North America which brings the lowest ping to those in the area but around 100 - 200 to those in Europe and 200 - 300 ping on those in Asia. The server however is mainly focused on the Philippines instead so thus we have created this poll to let the community decide if the server is going to move hosts.

    So please, login in your accounts, select an option on the poll, and leave a comment if you have any thoughts or doubts regarding the topic.

    EDIT: If you want to test your latency on the test servers, here are the IP addresses for them:
    Japan: mcajpw001.serveromat.gs:16401
    Singapore: mcasgw001.serveromat.gs:18579
    (hover your mouse cursor onto the bars of ping to see the numerical value, you can also connect to the server and test it out)

    As you've stated that the server is mostly focused on the community from the Philippines, the server hosts on Japan are more stable and better according to reviews I've gathered while gaming on south eastern Asian servers. Singapore might be a good option but I'm not sure about that.

    I voted on Singapore, that place, if I heard correctly, has one of the fastest internet connections. Since it's almost between America and Japan, it sorta connects Asia and Europe in a way.
    It's like a small win win situation, anywho. Just my thoughts.

    According to this graph, Japan has a higher average of Mbps than Singapore however Singapore has a higher peak of Mbps. So therefore, I have placed my bets on Singapore instead of Japan.

    EDIT: After running a latency test and creating two test servers on Singapore and Japan, the results are:

    Japan:
    Lowest: 200ms
    Average: 210ms
    Peak: 250ms

    Singapore:
    Lowest: 235ms
    Average: 250ms
    Peak: 280ms

    *These tests have been ran on a stable internet connection with 2.5Mbps of download speed and 0.5Mbps of upload speed with only one user using the internet connection for latency testing purposes.

    Because of the following outcomes, I have changed my vote to Japan because the latency is more stable and lower than Singapore.

    Due to popular vote from the RedekerCraft community, we are officially moving server hosts from the United States to Japan, as of right now the server files are being transferred onto my computer and will be uploaded back to the new server after everything has been downloaded, though this will take more time to re-upload everything to the new host as my upload speed isn't very sufficient but I hope I can finish uploading within 1 day otherwise it would be an issue with our players and server host.

    Another footnote I'd like to add is that I hope the server keeps running 24/7 even after moving hosts as our host in the United States is running 24/7 even when you stop and start the server and leave it running for more than 30 minutes with nobody playing.

    Hopefully our latency will be improved after the move to Japan, I am expecting around 200 - 250 of ping instead of 280 - 350.

    Currently, the FTP servers aren't functioning properly and I cannot upload the files to the new host. I apologize for the downtime but this is a problem I can't solve on my end and we can only wait for Serveromat to fix things on their side.

    I appreciate everyone bearing with me, hopefully when everything is moved and set up, everyone in the Asia region should experience better connection to the server.

    As of right now, the Factions world files are being uploaded to the FTP server. ETA is like within 25 minutes because my upload speed is completely terrible, but I apologize for the downtime and delay of the set up, but everything should go back on track soon.

    I'm also wondering if the server stays 24/7 but if it doesn't, I'll ask the other Server Managers regarding this issue and the host (if possible) regarding the issue.

    Hey guys! The server has finally moved to Japan and I'm currently setting up everything like the way it should be, it's currently whitelisted right now so only staff team members or testers can join for now.

    Please change the IP address in your server browsers to: mcajpw001.serveromat.gs:16428

    While testing the server, I have noticed the following differences after the move:

    • Players may get varied results in latency, either your ping will lower or rise gradually. The server is now hosted in Japan.
    • The Nether and End portals have been fixed and are working properly.
