Your Advantages

In terms of features Multicraft is currently unrivaled (see below) but of course features aren't everything. The following is a comparison of a few of the things Multicraft does better than the competition.

Other Software Multicraft Hosting Platform
Customization Customization is made impossible Flexible and customizable
Foundation Heavy and/or unstable frameworks Lean and mean, high performant
Community Improvement suggestions are ignored. Incorporated many user suggested functionalities
Stability Reinventing the wheel and has half-working feature implementations Extensive use of existing and tested technology
Control May require you to give them full control of your servers. Gives you full control over your machines
Flexibility Separate webserver per Minecraft server necessary Thousands of Minecraft servers can be managed with one webserver
Compatibility Minecraft and mod compatibility depends on low level protocols, breaking with every update Completely independent of changes to Minecraft
Security Servers are not separate from each other and plugin access is not restricted Server processes can't interfere with each other, restricting access
Scalability Fully dependent on a main node to be up at all times. Clustered central server guarantees no single point of failure.

Billing Bad interoperability with billing systems or restricted to a single system Many ready made solutions and extensive API
