The NCLF Minecraft Server has been in operation since September 28, 2010. The servers are semi-private cooperative (mutual combat allowed) no-grief servers.
The server runs out of Azure US West 2 (Washington, USA) on a D4as_v4 (4 VCPU, 16 GiB RAM) and costs roughly $70/month to operate. Donations to keep the server running are encouraged and appreciated. You can donate however much you feel comfortable. For donations of less than $3/month please use one of the one time donation options, Patreon destroys anything less than $3/month with fees unless you're grandfathered in (I'm not):
