Hello Guys,
Well, yesterday i was helping some random people in the Server chat area, so, a guy sent me a link like "jack.aternos.com" saying this was his server and he wants to see if it worked. I joined and he said that aternos is a free server hosting and explained me a little about it.

Well, i was curious and joined the website to see. I read that they earn the money to keep the server alive using ads, well, i tought it was a kinda strange. Because ads don't give too much money, and run a server is a kinda expensive those days.

Then, i googled a little about it, don't saw any problem. So i created an account there. (Don't used my MC account email and the password is completely different) and i did a little testing server. it was whitelisted with only one slot. and i using my MC account logged in without problems (my IGN wasn't on the whitelist). So i'm a kinda worried now (I lost an account once, and it's horrible).

Is it safe ?

Aternos is a small Germany-based server hosting project that basically lets you have a small server for free for a little while.

Its best use is for hosting minigames for you and your friends to play; hosting an actual server through Aternos is simply impractical.

Aternos is pretty good but it fits a LAN more than it fits running an actual server...
