There are many places a person can go to rent a temporary Minecraft server — but in renting a server your often face the following:
- A companies limited hours of support/access
- Limitations to which mods and server configurations available
- Shared server resources (often, you’re just renting a virtual machine not a TRUE dedicated server!)

- Throttled bandwidth for client connections
