This tutorial takes you through the steps of setting up your own server using the default server software that Mojang Studios distributes free of charge. For more tutorials, see the bottom of this page or the Tutorials page. For more information on Minecraft servers, see the Server page. Note: There is also custom server software available, which most large servers use, but these applications are not supported by Mojang Studios.
