Now recently I went on Planet Minecraft. My sever is down and when I was researching how to get a poplar sever I noticed that there wasn't an Blogs about this. I thought that I would help both myself and others. Now since I am not the best person to be explaining this. So if you guys could also give me suggestions I would be more than happy to add them to the blog.


Now as we all know many people want staff on a sever. Get a good respectable staff. Make sure they are dedicated to the sever. Also you could add a Questionnaire/Form for a member to apply for staff for. Also don't be to soft and accept everyone that applies. You need to learn to say No. When I first did it I found it hard but in the end it payed of. Also don't make the staff too overpowered. No player wants to go on a sever with staff that are randomly muting everyone.


Now if you add plugins to a sever it can rapidly enhance the game-play of the sever. Even if you add a common plugin such as 'Hit Bars'. Plugins can also be devolved by yourself. If you make a plugin yourself it could make the game-play for your sever better because the plugin fits in perfectly in the sever. I'm not saying that you have to make your own plugins but getting some can be useful. Many players try to join severs with many plugins. It will also give you more chances for players to stay on your sever.


As we all know advertising is long and takes a lot of your time. However, it's 100% worth it. It would be best if you advertised on Planet Minecraft. Like the Forums, Sever chat and even make a sever post about it. If you want some advice. Try not to advertise on YouTube Videos. This will attract many hater and they may even mess up your sever. But making a video on YouTube is a great idea.

Be there

When you get players you need to be there. Who wants to play on a sever that the owner doesn't even play on. Also if you are there it shows them that you take pride of Owning a sever. Some severs don't have their owner on all most all the time. That doesn't mean you should be there 24/7. It means to be sort of like a regular player.

Be Friendly

No-one ever like a sever where the owner is a complete jerk. Like if a player saw someone hacking and the owner mutes him. You should try to listen to the Public. But being friendly doesn't mean that you should give away free diamonds. It being helpful to people or not getting into fights. If you are going to tell someone off. Try to use /tell or /msg so the sever mood doesn't change.

Have Fun

This is the most important one. Just because you're the owner of the sever doesn't mean that you cant have fun. Get in the sever and play around with other players. play mini-games, go raiding or pvping. If you win don't take all the honour. Keep the mood up by saying stuff such as "Good Game" or "You were good". It can also help you make friends on Minecraft.

Hope you enjoyed this and comment below for suggestions or what you like about severs.
