How To Setup Your Own Minecraft Server

Minecraft is a Java multi-player game. It allows players to construct their own world with 3d cube texture. It comes with different modes – such as ‘survival mode’ that is all about to maintaining health and hunger with collected resources. It is also available on Android and on IOS .

If you are addicted to Minecraft and wish to play a game with your friend on your own server that has its own rules, then follow the steps below to run Minecraft on your own server:

  1. To create a server first download the Mincraft server setup and copy Minecraft_Server.exe into a different folder.
  2. Run server installer. It will download a few files on the same folder that could help to configure your server.
  3. open server.properties in notepad and set your server name, max-player and check your port (which is usually 25565 by default).
