How To Start A Minecraft Server! Tutorial for Java, PaperSpigot, and Shared Hosting

Recently I’ve started to get more questions from people asking for basic information about how to start their first Minecraft server. Rather than answering them in chat on Discord, I decided to make a video on the subject and cover some of the first steps towards starting a brand new Minecraft server, and thus this video was created.

This can be such an overwhelming subject for people who are just dipping their toes in the ocean of information on how to start a Minecraft server, that I’m going to turn this into a new series of videos. Each week I’ll try to tackle a different subject about the tools that we need to master in order to build solid servers, and hopefully over time that means we’ll have a great library of tutorials that anyone can watch through and understand.
