Since their launch in , Shockbyte have evolved from hosting a custom Minecraft game for Australian gamers, to one of the largest providers of game hosting services in the world, with more than 25 million gamers regularly connecting to their servers. Since their earliest days, internationalising their business has been a long-term goal, and OVHcloud has been a constant partner in this regard, delivering and maintaining the world-class bare-metal servers they build their services on, and supporting their ongoing expansion round the world. Based on this hands-on experience, they were keen to design their infrastructure to meet these challenges head-on, in order to provide both a great service to customers, and a great gaming experience to end users. First of all, both professional gamers and hobbyists demand exceptional performance from their servers, with the lowest possible latency. This makes quality hardware, a high level of automation, and the ability to geolocate servers essential. Secondly, having already experienced the damage that DDoS attacks could do at a different business, and been repeatedly unsatisfied with the protection offered by a previous provider, a robust Anti-DDoS solution was vital. Finally, scalability was a key concern, as since day one, Shockbyte had planned on taking their hosting business global. Their ideal provider would therefore not only operate datacentres in all key locations, but be able to provide proactive support as Shockbyte entered new markets.

Make Your Own Minecraft Server For Free
With its distinctly bright, blocky style, the sandbox survival game Minecraft has become iconic across the globe. Its popularisation can be largely attributed to massive online and real-life communities, and the thousands of mods that exist for it are also a crucial factor in making it the bestselling video game of all time. With PC, console, VR and even mobile platforms, the game is easily accessible and offers players total freedom in how they choose to play it, whether they are casual or avid gamers. While many do enjoy playing on publicly-accessible servers, private gaming servers are becoming increasingly popular for those who want to isolate a world, build it with just their friends, and play by their own set of rules. A VPS short for virtual private server is a fully-isolated virtual environment based on a bare-metal server. It may help to think of it as renting a flat, rather than a whole house. Smooth gameplay and flexibility are vital aspects of the ultimate gaming experience, and this is offered by dedicated computing resources — but often, dedicated servers can be too costly, and many users may not require all of the resources provided by bare-metal technology. If you are looking for a cost-effective way of hosting private Minecraft games with a group of other players, then a VPS will be the right solution for you.
We provide a free Minecraft server hosting with the full functionality of a paid server. Your Minecraft server will be free forever. However, at any time you can switch to a premium plan, which is a good choice for big communities.
