DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Minecraft Servers

Minecraft servers allow multiple Minecraft players to cooperate and play together on a single world. A “world” in Minecraft is a randomly generated, blocky expanse, which usually constitutes of grass blocks on top of stone blocks which rest on a ”void” in which when you fall through, you perish and must respawn. Worlds are infinite and generate as you walk through it. Minecraft servers are not limited to a single area, users from anywhere in the world can play, though the connection may be slow. Also, an advantage in multiplayer servers is that you can “chat” with fellow players.

How to Run a Server

Anyone can run a server, all you must do is download the official Minecraft server off of the Minecraft website, minecraft.net. Minecraft, as well as the Minecraft server, is available for the three major operating systems, which are Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Server Hosting

Servers can be hosted on your home computer or laptop, but professional servers are hosted on dedicated machines or on hosting services, such as CreeperHost. Gaming rigs can also double as server hosts, but uptime may not be 100%. Internet speed is also a determining factor, with the average internet connection being able to host fifty people to the super-fast “quantum” internet which can host hundreds, and maybe even thousands of players.

Server Revenue

Servers, through the BuyCraft plugin, can receive PayPal donations. At the moment, there are no bitcoin supporting donation plugins, but some may be in the making. Professional servers which rest on databases and machines in hosting services sometimes receive thousands of dollars worth of donations a month, which well outweighs the $30 to $40 charge for hosting services. Most servers accept donations in exchange for perks or rewards, such as “Titles” and “Items”.

How to Play on a Server and List of Well-Known Servers

To play on a server, click the “Multiplayer” button beneath the “Singleplayer” button in the Minecraft launcher*. Then, click “Join Server”. When you click that, a popup should appear asking for the server address or IP. Some servers have an address, such as uberminecraft.com (Uberminecraft cloud), but other have an IP, but very rarely. Most professional servers have a domain name.

Well-Known and Reputable Servers

Below is a list of well-known and reputable Minecraft servers that you can join! If you would like to join other servers, just go to the Minecraft Server List.

  • Uberminecraft Cloud: Uberminecraft.com - 9000 Slots
  • Minetime Cloud: Minetime.com - 1250 Slots

  • Minecraft Crafter's Community: play.minecraftcc.com - 60 (great community, customized modpacks and made up of different networks)



.*In the new launcher, this arrangement is different, but the underlying principle is similar. Click the multiplayer button, enter server IP or address, etc.
