Why MinetestHosting.com?

Before MinetestHosting.com, you only had a few options if you wanted to setup a MInetest server for you and your friends to play:

  • Run a server from your house, which often involves opening a port on your router and setting up a Dynamic DNS service or giving out your home IP address (every time it changes).
  • Rent a Virtual Private Server (VPS) and setup and manage your Minetest server remotely, most likely (and cheaply) running Linux and using the command line to manage and configure everything.
  • Beg someone with one of the above already setup to host a server for you.

Now you can setup a public-facing MInetest server without fiddling with port forwarding and dynamic DNS, or dealing with the overhead of managing a VPS.
