Servers are a large part of Mindustry in that they offer the ability to play the game with other people. There are two main types of servers; dedicated servers and local LAN servers. Dedicated servers are standalone, headless versions of the game that are focused only on providing a means for people to play Multiplayer.

We provide a free Minecraft server hosting with the full functionality of a paid server. Your Minecraft server will be free forever. However, at any time you can switch to a premium plan, which is a good choice for big communities. In this case, all the data on the server will be saved, such as your installed game servers, their IP addresses, maps, uploaded mods, plugins, etc. You will not need to buy a new server to transfer data from the free Minecraft server — everything will be transferred automatically. We guarantee reliable Internet connection and low ping. Our systems are secured against DDoS attacks. Our free Minecraft server hosting service supports mods and plugins. You can install several Minecraft servers at the same time for one server.
This is usually done in one of two ways. You can pay for hosting with a service provider or you can host it yourself at your own server — we will look into both methods in this article. Using a service provider is the simplest way of hosting a website. You can pay a small monthly fee and rely on the service provider to take care of all your equipment, infrastructure, and other associated needs.

Using 1-core machines is not recommended as the game requires a secondary CPU to ensure smooth performance without hiccups during intensive background operations such as world snapshot saving. Using more than a 2-core machine for a single game server hosting is redundant as the game cannot utilize more than two cores due to the sequential execution of the game simulation except networking.
