FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic

Minecraft Server Hosting

  • How do I host a Minecraft server at 1&1?

    Setting up a Minecraft server is easy with a number of cheap, dedicated hosting packages from 1&1. Regardless of your budget, you will find the resources and features required to quickly get your Minecraft server started—providing the best possible gaming experience for you and your friends. Select your seed, gaming mode, maximum player numbers and invite the people you want to play with in just a few clicks.

    1&1 will guide you through the set-up process to ensure you enjoy seamless installation. Firstly, select your dedicated hosting package in-line with your particular requirements. Once you have registered you will then have access to the 1&1 Control Panel where you can set up a Remote Desktop Connection and then install the dedicated Minecraft server software and Java app. From here, you can enable the Direct Connect option and allow access to other users. For more information on setting up your Minecraft server, please contact the 1&1 experts who will be happy to advise you further.
  • Which operating systems can I use with a Minecraft server at 1&1?

    Setting up a Minecraft server is possible on both Windows and Linux based servers, and 1&1 offers you the option of installing both operating systems. Your choice will depend upon your previous experience with command line prompts and the speed and resources you require. For the less experienced, Windows based dedicated hosting is the best choice, since the familiarity of the Windows GUI allows easy installation and maintenance of the Minecraft software.

    If you require quicker loading times and more resources then a cheap, dedicated hosting solution with Linux is the answer. Linux based systems do not require an additional GUI, and subsequently use less of your RAM and other resources when running Minecraft. However, this means you will need some knowledge of the command line prompt in order to install and maintain the Minecraft software.
  • How many slots are available with 1&1 Minecraft server hosting?

    The number of slots available on your Minecraft server is linked directly to the number of players you can support at any one time. Thankfully, 1&1's scalable Minecraft Server packages give you the option of between 25 and 1,530 slots—meaning that you can expand your gaming world to include friends, family and players from around the world.

    Your budget will dictate how many slots you can support at any given time, and 1&1 has created a number of packages to suit a range of different requirements. Smaller Minecraft worlds that only support a few players will find dedicated hosting for cheap prices that will help to keep costs down. However, 1&1 makes it easy to expand your world at any time—simply contact us to discuss your requirements and select the suitable upgrades for your needs.
  • How much RAM is included with server hosting for Minecraft?

    The performance of your Minecraft server is, in part, dependent on the amount of RAM it employs. For this reason, it is important to ensure you have enough RAM available to support the demands of your software and your users. With this in mind, 1&1 offers cheap, dedicated hosting starting at 4GB of DDR2 RAM and finishing at a massive 128GB of DDR4 ECC RAM for the most demanding applications.

    The amount of RAM you employ for your Minecraft server will depend upon the size of your gaming world and the number of players you want to involve at any one time. Increasing the RAM within your server will also prevent latency and lag which can cause noticeable delays between the reaction of your players and that of your server. Put simply, the more RAM you employ, the more likely your players will be able to enjoy responsive and uninterrupted gameplay whenever they log on to your server.
  • How can 1&1 enrich my Minecraft server hosting adventure?

    With more than a decade of experience and knowledge in providing approximately 13 million customers with unrivalled service, trust at 1&1 is earned and never lost.
