Minecraft Gametypes

Knowledgebase / Gametypes

Developing a Minecraft Server is definitely one of the most challenging tasks when becoming a server owner. You may have joined other servers and have seen many cool features such as NPC’s, Factions, minigames, and more. However, the question is how can you set that up on your own personal server? There are many steps involved in creating a server including knowing what plugins you will need, knowing how to install the plugins, and knowing how to configure/use the plugins. As we know how difficult this can be, our Apex Hosting staff have developed a variety of different premade servers. These servers can be installed with one easy click and will be set up instantly and ready to play. They also do have many customization options that will allow you to configure it to fit your specific needs. Knowing how you can configure each of these and what features each of them have can be a bit difficult. This is why we have a full knowledgebase of useful information on our 20+ gametypes.
