This is a guide to making a base that will most likely never be raided.

the first way:

Step 1: The first thing you must do is to do the common things, Getting wood, make some tools, food, and most importantly, keep a low profile. The last thing you want is to be someone who is well known because you dont want people hunting you down yet.

Step 2: The next thing you should do is to travel. this is why you need food, because the best thing is to travel very, very far. DO NOT build close to spawn thinking that raiders or x-rayers looking for a quick find are going to over look areas close to spawn because thats the first place they will look.

Step 3: The best way to keep hidden is to build deep underground in a place that is not very desirable. For example, under an ocean, in between lava pools, and near bedrock. having a mine near you that you mine in can be a good thing or a bad thing. A very common way for you to get raided is to leave your base open to a cave. What you want to do is to make a tunnle to it and cover it with stone.

Step 4: You may think "Then how do I mine and keep it descrete?" The best way to go is to travel from spawn in different directions and mine in caverns you find. Another way you could do it is to pull off some epic heist and be set for a long time. Or you can do the way in step 3.

Step 5: You should also have farms, such as melon, sugarcane, wheat, and nether wart. You always need to have a constent supply of rescources coming in to be strong and efficient.

Step 6: You also should make sure that you base is not near any other bases, and never make the base bigger than it needs to be. There must always be defense measures, such as lava near your base, traps, and not making a ladder up to the surface, because it just isnt a good idea. Also dont claim your land because people will know your there if you do.

This is what I do and i have never been raided on a server.

Way 2: Step 1: get some friends, make a faction, go really far, make a big base that is nearly inpenatratable, and keep your power up. Done

I never do that though

Thanks and I hope this helped someone out there

I can second these steps. I follow them, and the only reason I get raided is because I choose factions members poorly :P
Although, I am tentative about not claiming the land. If the map is infinite, and you can get to 20,000+ blocks out, then don't claim. However, in a smaller map, you might want to claim the land. Even though this risks detection. I've stumbled across some unclaimed bases simply by luck, and was able to walk in and take everything.
