Top Minecraft Server Hosts

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

Today, we will be taking a look at the top Minecraft server hosts that are out there and who are dominating the server hosting markets! First, we have a couple of questions we need answers to, right?

Who are Minecraft server hosts and what do they do?

So, all servers need to be hosted on a machine and some people have decided to purchase their own hardware and/or rent out hardware from providers and basically resell them to people who want to host their own servers - brilliant, don't you think? It's not as easy as you think though, it requires a lot of knowledge to be able to upkeep a machine with many users.

Other than reselling their machines, they also often provide support to their customers with technical problems, server-related problems, etc. Some offer better support than others, so if you're new to hosting a Minecraft server then we highly recommend you hosting your server from a provider with a good reputation in giving support to clients.

how are Minecraft server hosts different from each other?

That's a good question, and as stated before, some hosting providers offer better support than others and a lot of people also take a look at what kind of hardware they are getting, where it is located and that nerdy stuff, haha.

So, in a neat little list there are many things to take a look at in a hosting provider, such as the following:

  • What kind of hardware is the server running on?

  • Where is the server located?

  • Do they have good uptime on their servers?

  • How good is their DDoS Protection?

  • What kind of support do they offer to their clients?
