How do I host a Server IP in Minecraft?Slow down, first you need to know if you even can run a server. To tell first check if your computer has over 2GB of (RAM) memory, then make sure its at least has a dual core processor (i3,i5,i7 are better). Your bandwidth must also be quite high, Connection Upload speed is the most important variable when determining if you can run a server. To check upload speed you can use the tool at SpeedTest.net. Upload Speed should be over 1MB/s for 2 people and for every aditional 3 people it should increase by 1MB/s. If your system has all of the above specs or better you are ready to run a server. If you do not have the required specs but still wnt a minecraft server you should look for a server vendor. Servers can be as cheap as 10$/month and host up to 30people at a time, and better yet you can still use your computer to play. To set up a server on your computer visit this page.
