- Customization Options: You gain extensive control over your server settings, including the ability to add modifications and manage player access.
- Technical Support: Hosting services typically offer support for setup, maintenance, and troubleshooting, which is invaluable for users regardless of their technical skills.

We give unlimited slots to all Minecraft servers so you do not get to select the amount of player slots on the order form.
The physical location of your Minecraft game server is crucial. Choosing a server closer to you or your players can significantly lower latency, which is the response time between your in-game actions and the server's reaction. The lower the latency (or ping), the smoother your gaming experience.
Extreme Performance Locations
Our extreme performance options mean your Minecraft server is powered by a Ryzen 9 7950x CPU, the best available. Choosing an extreme location ensures top-tier performance, making the CPU Clock Speed addon unnecessary.
Minecraft servers, especially those with large worlds or numerous mods, can be memory-intensive. While our base memory allocation is usually sufficient, larger servers may need more. Remember, you can upgrade memory allocation anytime, and our control panel allows you to monitor CPU, Memory, and disk usage, even historically over the past 30 days.
CPU Clock Speed
All our standard servers use Ryzen 9 5950x CPUs. With an addon, you can upgrade to an overclocked Ryzen 5950x for enhanced performance. However, for the best experience, we recommend our extreme locations with the Ryzen 9 7950x CPU.
You have the option to increase disk space, though Minecraft servers typically require minimal storage. This upgrade is available upon request from our users.
In our shared hosting environment, multiple Minecraft servers may operate on a single machine. Opting for CPU Priority ensures your server gets more processing priority, especially during high resource demand periods, enhancing performance.
VIP Ticket Priority Support
This addon prioritizes your support tickets. While we strive for rapid response times (usually 1-15 minutes), this option ensures your queries are addressed first, especially during busy periods or outages. It's a luxury option, given our general speed in responding to support needs.

Hosting a Minecraft server can either be free or incur costs, depending on the approach you choose:
Self-Hosting (Free): You can set up a Minecraft server on your own computer at no cost. This method involves using your own hardware and internet connection to run the server. While it's free, it has limitations, such as requiring your computer to be on and connected to the internet whenever you want the server to be accessible. Additionally, the server's performance and player capacity may be limited by your computer's capabilities and your internet bandwidth.
Using a Hosting Service (Paid): Companies like GTXGaming offer dedicated Minecraft server hosting for a fee. These services provide servers with better performance, higher uptime, and global accessibility and include additional features like DDoS protection, technical support, and easy mod installation. The cost varies depending on the options you choose such as CPU and memory limits, and additional features you choose.
Minecraft Realms (Subscription-Based): Mojang, the developers of Minecraft, offer a subscription-based service called Minecraft Realms. It's an easy way to host a server directly through the game, but with fewer customization options compared to third-party hosting services. The cost of Realms varies depending on the number of players you want to allow and the subscription duration.
In summary, hosting a Minecraft server can be free if you do it yourself, but for better performance and more features, paid hosting services or Minecraft Realms are available options.

We've chosen to offer unlimited player slots for our Minecraft hosting services. Since Minecraft hosting is primarily billed based on memory usage, we believe it's better to provide unrestricted access to player slots instead of limiting the size of your player base.
