1- Prior Knowledge about CraftBukkit
2- Knowledge of running a server on your desktop and port forwarding
3- Advertising your server, and having a staff
4- Raising the Money to get a Dedicated Server
5- Creating a server worth donating to!
1- CraftBukkit, is like a Minecraft_Server.jar that you place into a folder and run it off a batch file.. Hopefully it will bring up a console and your server will be able to get logged on by people on your router.
Not many of you know what I'm Talking about so here is a link
When, I was a noob that was what I used
2- To run a server on your desktop, I do suggest Laptops, as they overheat easily and provide for laggy crap servers! In addition, Computers that run low Gb of Ram, Minecraft will rape your computer to shreads. If you have a crappy computer please skip to Section 4. So, you have got your server running, and want to make it unique and awesome! But, how? how will you learn how to yml code, and make plugins fit to your need, as well as port forward?
It is actually really easy, for port forwarding, search up what router you have, go on google and go to portforward.com search where to go to portforward your Minecraft server the Port for Minecraft is 25565, so if you can find where to input that into your router... Your set. Those for you that don't or are having trouble, ask the people in PMC or in the comment section because I can't waste all my time, writing about every single router.
Now for the plugins part, notice that a plugins folder was created when, you made your CraftBukkit server? First, off turn off the server by going into console and typing /stop, then go into server properties, and enter your ip address, and other information. The Ip address your players are going to be using is your ISP which can be found at whatismyip, just go on google, and tell your players to type that ISP:25565 and the port 25565.
Now for plugins, go to bukkit.org, hit get my plugins, and search for the the neccessary plugins. Essentials (The entire pack), PermissionsEx, WorldGuard, and maybe any other plugins you want. Put that into your plugins folder, and run your server, a bunch of folders are going to get created, stop your server once its done. Go into your plugins folder, and I suggest downloading Notepad++, and edit it to your liking. I can't make a tutorial for that, just go on YouTube...
3- Easy part, go on YouTube, create trailers for your server, post a ad on planetminecraft, minecraftforum, yogscast forum, get minequery plugin, and set up a minequery port by adding this into your server properties minequery-port: 25566, if that doesn't work try mine-query-port:25566.
4- Raising Money, now you can do what I did which was, make a adcraft account and make a bunch of skins, to make money off people downloading it, and ran a small minecraft server at the time.. I now have a big 100 dedicated slot server
5- This is the hard part, which requires your own imagination and expert building
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN! 22.214.171.124:25565 ( The little server owner that got big
