Minecraft Server setup - the basics.
Ok let me be clear never played minecraft, I got no experience with it. But recently I have been seeing too many places/hosts who offer minecraft hosting.
Before you start bashing the knuckle put of me, I will most likely not get into this business for atleast next 18 mo. But before I do anything, I have decided to try out minecraft hosting business by doing it free. So I or users have 0 to loose while me and my partner can gain some MC administration skill, get used to with the support quiery and such. And we will most likely be hosting that for some local kids/gamers.
So lets get back to the main reason, Besides good I/O PERFORMANCE, better network, powerful CPU and shit load of ram, what does it take to become a mc host? Does mc works on *nix or only windows? What are the licensing cost? Do you get/need a GUI setup to manage or can be done over command line? How does the administration itself works? Is it a click and go system or requires task over command line? What are the basic administration setup? How does the user connects? Do they use a local client from their computer or everything is done online?
What else am I missing here? O yes, a noob friendly guide on how to play MC. I would like to play myself aswell.
Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!
