This guide will tell you how to host a minecraft server. All of the software that you need is provided by Mojang and other third party developers that have created their own versions of the download. If you are just getting started creating your own server for the first time, it is advised to use the standard version of Minecraft distributed by Mojang. As you become more experience with running a server, consider using custom server software which is available from a number of websites. All of the software is provided for free, all that is required to purchase is a license to use the client to connect to your server and play the game. These are the most common versions of minecraft servers that our clients are using:
|Server Version||Description||RAM||Add Ons||Difficulty|
|Vanilla||The standard Minecraft server release from Mojang. Includes everything that you need to enjoy playing the game. There are different versions available including the latest updates that are available from Mojang known as snapshots.||512MB+||None||Easy|
|Bukkit||A server release that allows players to connect without a specific set of addons called plugins. You can install and configure these plugins for your server which anyone can easily connect to and enjoy. There are thousands of plugins available for Bukkit servers.||1GB+||Plugins||Moderate|
|Forge||A server version that is created by loading mods and creating either a server or client pack. There are also mod packs existing through a variety of launchers such as FTB, ATL, Technic and others.||1.5GB+||Mods||Moderate|
|Spigot||An optimized version of bukkit that also supports networks of servers.||2GB+||Plugins||Advanced|
The first option for how to make a Minecraft server is to do so on your own computer. This means that your personal desktop will be running the server, which consumes your available memory and processing power. If you are simultaneously running the client and attempting to play the game, you might experience lag if your computer is not powerful enough. Once your friends and others start to connect to the server, it will increase the load on your computer and begin to slow down. You will also need a very fast internet connection to be able to support all of these connections. Creating a server on your personal computer is usually an option for getting started with building a world, but when you have multiple players it is suggested to use minecraft server hosts. There are also security considerations that should be taken as you will need to give your IP out allowing players to connect to it. Chances are that you do not have any security from DDoS attacks whereas our hosting service includes advanced mitigation for free. This is why many Minecraft players choose to purchase hosting from Apex. Some other benefits that also come with purchasing a server include:
With all of these benefits, it is clear why choosing Apex as your Minecraft server hosting provider is a great choice. There are many advantages when using this service, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the game, and less time worrying about how things are running. The pricing is monthly and is very affordable when compared to the costs of other games with monthly fees. Once you are ready to set up your hosting, you will need to decide how much RAM is required for what you are looking to accomplish.
