If you’ve ever been interested in hosting a Minecraft server, Shulkecraft’s Youtube video summarizes free and paid options for hosting a server. Additionally, they provide tips on setting up your server environment, such as purchasing hardware and software to run a server.
Step 1: Choose Your Server Type
The first step to hosting a Minecraft server is deciding what server you want to use. You can find many free hosting services online if you want a free server.
These free servers are usually slower and more limited than paid services. Still, they are great for experimenting with Minecraft or hosting a small group of friends. You should consider paying for a dedicated solution if you want to host a larger server or need more control over your server.
Step 2: Get the Necessary Hardware and Software
If you choose a paid hosting solution, the next step is to ensure you have the necessary hardware and software components to run a server. You’ll need a reliable computer, an internet connection, and a version of the server software compatible with Minecraft. Depending on your hosting needs, you may also need additional hardware or software components.
Step 3: Set Up Your Server Environment
Once you’ve got the necessary hardware and software components, it’s time to set up your server environment. This includes setting up the server software on your computer, configuring the server settings, and ensuring that your server is properly secured.
