4 Things to Do After Purchasing a Minecraft Server

January 2019

If you’re a frequent player of the popular Minecraft game and want to take your gaming experience to the next level, then perhaps you’re considering the option of setting up a dedicated server specifically for your gaming needs. At ReliableSite, we’re proud to offer dedicated Minecraft servers to optimize your gaming experience, reduce lag, and provide you with seemingly endless options for customization. We even offer servers that allow you to run multiple Minecraft servers at-once off a single IP address!

Before you select your ideal Minecraft hosting option, however, you should be aware of a few of the steps you’ll want to take after purchasing your plan. From there, you can expedite the process and enjoy your gaming experience as soon as possible.

Set Up Your Server

You’ll want to begin by setting up and configuring your server. Depending on the specific hosting plan you select, it may be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of days after your purchase goes through that you will be able to complete this configuration. If you want to start your Minecraft server today, make sure you select one of our many “quick set-up” options so you don’t have to delay your configuration as we get your server up and running.

Decide on Rules/Guidelines

One of the greatest aspects of Minecraft is the fact that you get to decide on your own community rules and guidelines. This is especially true when you have your own dedicated server for Minecraft, since you will be able to decide on your own specific guidelines for the entire community to follow. While you will have the ability to change your rules at any time, it’s a good idea to think these through carefully before you implement them.

Determine Player Access

Another important step you’ll need to take after purchasing and setting up your dedicated Minecraft server is deciding on access. Will you allow unfiltered access to your community, or do you want to have greater control over who has access to your Minecraft server? When deciding this, be sure to consider the amount of bandwidth you have available on your specific server. Many people choose to restrict access to other gamers they know and trust, but this decision is ultimately up to you!

Enjoy Your Gaming!

Once you’ve configured your server, set up community rules/guidelines, and decided on player access for your Minecraft community, there isn’t much left to do besides enjoy your gaming. With a dedicated server, you’ll enjoy low latency/lag, as well as greater customization opportunities and an overall better gaming experience.
