Minecraft has sold over million copies worldwide. Kids and adults everywhere are mining, crafting, and Minecrafting together in multiplayer worlds; players build social skills, improve their problem-solving abilities, and exercise their creativity when building together online. Good news! We created some downloadable directions to get you started hosting your own Minecraft server for your student. These were created using iD Game Plan, the same learning management system that students use at camp. Before you try to do any of this at home, these instructions are meant for parents who are helping their kids. Thus, kids MUST get parent permission and choose a time when they can supervise and help. Setting up and running an online server means that anyone with your external IP address will be able to join your server and play in your Minecraft world. Think carefully about who you invite to play on your server!
In this free CodaKid tutorial, we will be providing step by step instructions on how to create and host your own Minecraft Server. In addition to guidance on how to set up free Minecraft server hosting, we provide step by step instructions on how you can set up multiplayer games that you can play with your friends and family. We at CodaKid live and breathe Minecraft, and we teach tens of thousands of students each year Minecraft Modding using the Java programming language. We hope that you enjoy this guide! These instructions require that you own the Minecraft Java Edition. If you own the pocket, console, or Windows 10 edition of Minecraft, you will not be able to host your own custom server. Minecraft Java Edition can be purchased and downloaded here. If you already own Minecraft Java Edition, then you can proceed to Step 2. The first step in setting up a Minecraft server is making sure you have the latest version of Java installed. Minecraft requires Java to run the game and having the latest version will help us run our server without issues.
