Before you get a minecraft server host, check these guys out: http://is.gd/PZOhpA
Last year, I wanted a minecraft server host but really couldn’t find any solid information online. This is what prompted me to shoot this little video based on my experience looking for minecraft server hosts… and boy there are a lot of them!
There are a ton of options online and it is tough to truly get a concept of exactly what minecraft host or hosting company is most ideal. The largest hurdle is to try and find a company that is trustworthy and has actually been around for some time. Pretty much anyone can claim to be the best minecraft server host for minecraft. Then, you turn over your cash and the problem begins … ask me how I know ;-).
Be sure to choose a minecraft server host that has an excellent reputation and has actually been in business a few years (like the company link I included at the start of this description).
Also, you do not have to invest large dollars to get a great server for hosting minecraft. Some hosting plans are 10 or 16 bucks per month. You can easily spend that on Mountain Dew in a month. haha.
I would suggest that you make a listing of all the great Minecraft plug-ins you like and have that list handy before you order your server. Some companies will install and configure the plug ins for you. Makes it a lot faster and simpler to get your server up and running.
Finally, ensure that the host company provides a warranty. An uptime guarantee which you could cancel without any penalties.
It was a little overwhelming when I decided to buy a minecraft server host. I had no idea how to start a minecraft web server. With any luck, this info will assist you to make the right choice!
