they cannot upgrade services automatically, however, that definitely isn't the case with Minecraft

This is realistically the best advice here. With the right sysadmin in place taking care of things for you, you're really only ever going to need to keep the server app up to date, which is extremely easily done and not something that you need to even worry about very frequently. Hopefully you get your upgrading issues sorted soon though.

Your best bet is to stick with shared hosting but find a reputable host, there's a lot more to a server than what meets the eye, and OVH won't give you any support unless it's for hardware/network based issues.
They just give the excuses of 'must be the plugins' when the plugins havn't changed, but the RAM has. Ok and thanks for the help

If you're looking at SYS then the E3-1245v2 with SSDs is a good choice for Minecraft as well.
Ok thanks, and how would running a minecraft server actually work on here, is there some way to access files and transfer them, and a way to keep the actualy minecraft file running to keep the server up?

My friend recommended this place to buy a server to host a minecraft server, due to the fact there are no 3rd parties limiting the server. So I would just like ask, what am I actually going to look for, because most of this stuff i'm not sure what it all means, so if someone could help me decide what sort of server to buy.
