Colocating will cost you the cost of the hardware plus around $90-100/month of collocation fees depending which datacenter you go with. Its worth it in the long run if you plan on existing as an organization for at least a few years. I'd be cautious about that that. Oh and you'd have to sign a 1 year contract most likely.

Or you get a very good internet connection somehow and home-host it. I take it this is the official minecraft server thats we're talking about?

turbo boost does not count.

Make sure you get to find out the hardware of a server first, but If a company actually takes the time to custom overclock their server, then that is the first I have ever heard of doing such a thing. And is also pretty unprofessional and irresponsible.

EDIT: The only offering of an overclocked server processor i've found was a "clan" that also offered server space on their server.

Thats what i was referring to. My ISP only charges $5 a month for a static IP, and if i remember i can have up to 5, but i dont need 5....
