Choose the best place for hosting your Mumble/Murmur server on the web


Welcome to another guide about Mumble! Mumble is a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) chat system that allows you to speak to your friends, colleagues or friends over a high efficient, low latency chat system.

In my other guides I go through how you can set up your own Mumble server. How to set up the Mumble client and how to customize it. Today I am going to show those who do not want to set up their own server on their own local box. Today I will show some really good hosting providers that will host the Murmur server for cheap!
Possible Hosts

I am only going to be covering a few hosts that I know to be good. Mumble hosting commercially – since it takes such little bandwidth – is relatively cheap. I personally don’t own a server to keep running daily and I had previously used my gaming computer as a server. So I have found that $2 out of my pocket every month for 15 people to connect and chat while gaming, is very worth my money.

The first host I would like to introduce is Mumble Boxes. Mumble Boxes has 4 locations to choose from within the USA. 1 location in the UK and 1 in Japan. Their plan costs

10 Users for $1.45 a month
15 Users for $1.66 a month
25 Users for $2.66 a month

I would like to introduce MMO-Mumble. They probably have the most options for pricing schemes. They have 6 locations within the USA. Also 2 locations in New England. Although in order to view these locations you have to sign up for an account. They have yearly, bi-yearly, quarterly and monthly as options for payments. I will not be listing them all. They are a bit more for the buck and there aren’t as many options slot wise. Here are their prices for monthly:

5 Users for $1.25 a month
10 Users for $2.50 a month
25 Users for $6.25 a month
50 Users for $11.25 a month

The last one I would like to introduce is Hypernia. Hypernia is a place for gammers. Their main focus is on Hosting game servers but also allow mumble and other voip servers to be hosted. They have 7 locations within the USA and 6 others around the world. Their plans include:

10 Users for $2.50 a month
15 Users for $3.75 a month
20 Users for $5.00 a month
25 Users for $6.25 a month

These are a little more in the price range, however you have the quarterly, bi-yearly, and yearly billing cycles that reduce the cost up to 15%.
Final Comments

As you can see, there are many options here. There are some that are cheaper but are in less locations. There are more expensive plans, and there are more locations but fewer options for slots on the servers. Like anything on the internet when going to buy something, you must look at all the options and find which is the best for you. When it comes to Mumble servers be sure to test the server out before buying that location. Most companies do allow you to move locations if there is a problem with the service. But it creates less of a hassle.

I hope this guide was helpful. Please let me know if I need to add any more information about this guide. If anything is unclear or needing to be simplified. Please let me know!
