Minecraft Server Hosting FAQs

What is Minecraft Server Hosting?

A Minecraft server represents your very own instance of Minecraft that you control and can invite your friends and community to play. If you wanted, you could even set up your own private Minecraft server on your own PC. However, there would be several difficulties and potential issues to overcome in doing so, like: having a thorough understanding of your network IPs and firewall settings, providing 24/7 access to the game server for friends to access, having enough reliable bandwidth to support it, etc.

With Minecraft Server Hosting, you get to leave the difficult parts of running a game server to the pros while you can focus on customizing and enjoying your game instance. Your Minecraft Server Hosting is powered by Cloud VPS (virtual private server) with dedicated resources like RAM and CPU on a network with 99.9% uptime so that your server is always up and running and the game plays smoothly. It comes with your own game panel that lets you choose your preferred version of Minecraft and server types, upload and install plugins and mods, and launch your new Minecraft server for you and your friends in just a matter of minutes.

How much RAM do I need for my Minecraft server?

While our Minecraft server plans do not limit player slots nor the use of plugins or modpacks, each modpack has its own memory, or RAM, requirements. And having more active players on your server will require more RAM to ensure stable and fast server performance for your Minecraft world. Use the following benchmarks on popular modpacks to help determine how much RAM you need for your Minecraft server. And if you find yourself wanting to add more players or modpacks to your server later, you can always upgrade or downgrade your server at any time. 

  • RLCraft modpack: 8GB RAM minimum
  • SkyFactory4 modpack: 6GB RAM minimum
  • MineColonie modpack: 6GB RAM minimum
