We're launching Minecraft servers, free for everyone. There are some caveats to these servers opposed to our paid tiers (listed below). Regardless, our free servers are a great way to get playing with a few of your friends.To get started, simply join on the latest version (1.15.2) to create a server through our hub - no sign-up required!
There are pros and cons of choosing a free server over a paid server, so we'll go over them here.
|Cost||Doesn't cost anything - free forever!||Costs very little compared to other providers.|
|Service specifics||Servers are only online when at least 1 player is active on the server. Servers are shutdown 10 minutes after the last player logs off. Servers can only be started by the original creator.||Servers can be left up 24/7, shutdown as and when required, and subusers can be given permissions to modify certain control panel features.|
|Player slots||There's a player cap of 10 players per server (you can reduce this if necessary).||All tiers have no player slot limit.|
|Plugin availability||There's a limited selection of plugins available (plugins may be added or removed based on user suggestions) and only 5 can be used at a time.||Any plugin can be installed either through our control panel or manually uploaded.|
|Modpack availability||No modpacks available.||Thousands of modpacks available via Curseforge, several APIs and Technic packs.|
|Settings||Limited settings must be amended through the server - there isn't a control panel.||You get full access to our fully fledged control panel, where you can edit every game file.|
|Startup specifics||If our free servers are at maximum capacity, you may have to wait a while to start up your server.||You can boot up and shut down your server whenever - there's no waiting around.|
|Support||No access to support.||24/7 support available from our helpful support staff.|
It's worth noting that if you decide to upgrade to a paid server, we can transfer across your server files from your free server for you - simply contact support.
