Minecraft, a game which had been there for long has undergone numerous revisions. However, with all these changes, the game continues to be the favorite of our time. If you wish to start a small Minecraft server in your home computer to play with one or two of your friends, you just have to configure the Minecraft in Linux or Putty. If yours is a Windows operating system, you can start a free Minecraft hosting service by following the instructions given below:
Download the Minecraft software from the official game website. Keep it saved in a specific folder which in future would contain all your Minecraft files. Before going further, make sure that Java version 6 or later is installed on your PC. This is a must because all the other previous versions produce errors which may make the installation of the downloaded software something next to impossible. Done this, proceed with the executable file, open it. This starts the automatic configuration of the Minecraft host server on your computer. Ignore the error messages which may pop up in between. Upon its completion, you are required to increase the memory of your Minecraft server. To achieve this task, just open a notepad file and paste the following code:
"C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar "Minecraft_Server.exe". This file fetches the file which you are using to configure the Minecraft server. Done this, you are required to rename the file as "run.bat." Save it in your Minecraft folder. By doing this, you increased the memory of your Minecraft server from 100MB to 2GB which is generally regarded as satisfactory to play the game for some time.
However, when the game starts gaining momentum with more and more of your friends joining the excitement, your computer may face a tough time to cope up with the extra pressure it is forced to handle. This may become quite annoying with the game getting disrupted at times. And it can be regarded as a warning signal alerting you on the requirement of a paid server for the same. A paid server offers greater stability and improved performance allowing you to enjoy the maximum excitement the game offers. Opting for a paid service for your Minecraft game would never create a situation where you are made to regret your decision. Minecraft is a game which allows the free flow of one's creativity and spirit of adventure. The treasure hunting in the game is made dangerous with the presence of angry monsters which are waiting for you to reach there. And if you go too close to them, you get killed. And when you revive the game with renewed freshness, you are required to find out all the treasure which you had hunt previously because when you die, all these get scattered.
Go ahead, boost your creativity and the spirit of exploration while having the time of your life enjoying the game of Minecraft.
