Dedicated Minecraft & VPS Hosting
With the latest Ryzen 9 CPUs

Frequently Asked Questions

A Bloom VPS is like having your own dedicated server. You have full control and root access to do whatever you want. Want to install three different types of Minecraft servers? Go ahead. Want to install a Terraria server or Rust server as well? Perfectly possible. With single-game shared hosting, you are limited to what your host decides.
With Bloom, there are absolutely no limits to your usage. Our plans feature fully dedicated CPU and RAM, allowing you to use them however you please, as much as you please.
Open your terminal and run ping [IP]. You will then be told your ping (in milliseconds) to the server. Alternatively, you can use this tool to check the approximate ping from multiple different locations. Below is a list of what IP to ping for each server.
  • US (Dallas): dal.bloom.host
  • US (Virginia): ash.bloom.host
  • Finland (Helsinki): hel.bloom.host
  • Germany (Falkenstein): fsn.bloom.host
When Bloom is preparing to launch a new node, a waitlist will be opened allowing you to reserve a spot and pre-order your first month of service. While you do have to pre-pay to reserve your spot, your billing cycle does not begin until the day your server is activated so you are not paying for any unused time. If you are an existing customer that will be transferring your server to the new node, you will also be given a pro-rated credit for the unused time on your old server at the time of transfer.

At any point, you can cancel your reservation and receive a full refund for any amounts prepaid.

Bloom's waitlist uses a seperate discord server, you can find it here.

You can join the queue at any moment, you will open a ticket in that server and give them the server you would like to get in line for. It uses a first come first serve system. You can change your queue or leave at any time. When your spot opens up you will be pinged in your ticket and will have 24 hours to claim your spor or else it will be given to someone else.

VPS Specific Questions

When you are checking out, you can pick which version of Linux you want as your operating system. We currently offer several of the most popular distributions that are compatible with most game servers. When you recieve your Bloom VPS, you will have shell and VNC access to your freshly-installed operating system. From there, you are free to do as you wish.
Bloom's Virtual Private Servers are unmanaged. This means that while we are responsible for keeping your server up and running, you are responsible for installing and configuring the server to your liking. However, we are happy to install any game server that you like. Just choose the option at checkout and pay a small one-time fee.
We don't limit you from doing certain things like running media servers, storage servers, or even legal adult content. There are other expressively prohibited activities related to malicious activity, but in most cases if it's legal in the United States, we're cool with it. You can see more information in our terms of service.

We support Java 8, 11 and 14. Simply open a ticket with us and we'll be happy to swap you over to a different version.
