Make a Server Minecraft

Server minecraft. That’s a great name for a game, right? How about if I told you before I even wrote it? Maybe it doesn’t have the same ring. Let’s try something else, hmm. Server building with Minecraft is a great name for a game, but how about before I even wrote it? Maybe it doesn’t have the same ring. Let’s try something else, hmm.


The properties highlighted in the above image are some of the most important ones you should be familiar with. The first “gamemode=survival” property determines the gamemode you and your players will play in the server by default. This is set to survival meaning you will have hunger and health you will have to manage in game. Setting this to “gamemode=creative” lets the players build, break, and fly as they are untouchable and unkillable in this gamemode. One of the more important properties in our experience with minecraft servers is the next highlighted “pvp=true” line. PvP stands for player vs play so this controls whether or not players can damage each other. By default this is set to true meaning players can hurt and damage one another in game. Setting this to “pvp=false” will disable and ability for players to damage each other.

The most important thing to consider is RAM and virtual CPU allocation. Your server quality and number of players hinge on the server's memory. 2GB of RAM could support up to 10 players before lag creeps into the game. Virtual CPU allocation affects gameplay smoothness; the more CPUs or higher quality CPUs powering your server, the better. As mentioned earlier, if you just want to play with a handful of friends, a basic plan should suffice. If you’re hoping to grow a community, however, you must invest money into a high-end hosting subscription.
