How much is a Minecraft server?

Minecraft is definitely one of the most popular games in the world. In particular, the multiplayer component has played a big role in the popularity of this "sandbox" game. People join together on servers to survive, build, and play various mini-games together. There are many servers in different themes and styles, but sooner or later most players think of creating their own server. In this article, we will answer one of the most common questions - how much does a Minecraft server cost?


If you are interested in how to host a server on your own PC, you can read our article on this topic.

Why do I need to buy a Minecraft server?

The server creation software itself is distributed by Mojang for free, so people usually mean paying for the "hosting" service when they say "buying a server". "Hosting" is actually running a server on a third-party machine with remote access to the server's files.

This service allows you to unload your own PC, because running a server on it requires its working resources, and also allows your players to have access to the server regardless of whether your computer is running. In addition, the undoubted advantage of "hosting" is the access to administer the server from any PC or mobile device using remote access interfaces.

In addition to the above-mentioned advantages, along with paying for hosting, you also receive technical support from specialists who will help you solve all your problems with running your own server. This will be especially helpful for owners of servers with mods, because when running such a server, there are usually many errors that an unprepared user can't easily resolve without help.

What about hosting on Godlike?

One of the main tasks of the Godlike team is to create comfortable conditions for server owners and meet the needs of everyone. Therefore, on our resource, you can choose the tariff you need from the list of offered ones.

The "Start" tariff is exactly what you need to try out what hosting is and appreciate all the benefits of this service. Have you and your friends decided to play vanilla Minecraft and remember how it feels to get together for a dragon hike? This plan is ideal for a small company of 10 people. An AMD Ryzen 9 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 10 GB of storage on our SSD will allow you to enjoy the game and forget about lag. You can also count on the help of our support team.

The cost of the tariff is $3.49 for the first month, $6.99 for each subsequent month.

"Advanced" plan - suitable for a small server with plugins or even not very demanding modifications. Do you want to start your own Minecraft project? This plan will be a great start for you, as it has twice as much RAM and SSD space (4 GB \ 20 GB). This plan will provide 20 players with stable gameplay without any problems. Feel free to choose this option, as it may be the beginning of the history of the new great Minecraft server.

The cost of the tariff is $6.49 in the first month and $12.99 in each subsequent month.

The "Expert" tariff is a choice for those who know exactly what they want. This is a more powerful server build that can withstand heavy loads. As much as 6 GB of RAM, 30 GB of SSD storage, and 3 AMD Ryzen 9 cores will ensure game stability even for large online games (up to 40 people recommended). Plug-ins are not a problem for this build, it is able to "pull" even some powerful mods.

The cost of the tariff is $9.99 for the first month and $19.99 for each subsequent month.

Also, you can download any core, create backups of your server on our cloud and upload your worlds to the server via FTP file transfer system!
