Is it possible to host a minecaft server on FWG?

Postby J3rdegree » 26 Dec 2012, 05:16

As you have probably seen many FWGrs pay minecraft on the pc, but always end up dragging each other off to private servers that aren't connected to FWG or its rules, but what if we hosted a server off of FWG itself? That way there could be a safe place for us to play minecraft and chat keeping the rules of FWG chatrooms there also, and be able to designate all fwg mods that play minecraft as mods on the server, and have the admins admins.
This COULD cost up to $50 a month for a good server that we would have complete control over...
or about $10 a month if we get a decent server that we would have limited control over (more info on these options here http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/278339-not-sure-what-type-of-hosting-you-want-heres-a-guide/)
OR there is a third free option
If you (Hito/Frookferter) have complete control over FWG and the network is hosted from, it is possible to set up a server off of where FWG is hosted
Unfortunately this requires knowledge of coding without a GUI (kind of like linux. More info on how to here https://openshift.redhat.com/community/blogs/paas-free-minecraft-server-hosting if this doesn't seem correct to the code savvy people ill dig up correct info)
It would be cool if this was possible, but i have no idea about how FWG is hosted or the control you guys have over it.
If this isnt possible ill work on getting the money together to host one myself, but it would be nice if it would be possible just to run it off FWG XP

just as long as it requires no effort from me. I'd pay for a good enough server.

..... like it says up there it can be $50 a month, $5-10 a month, or free if you feel like putting the time into coding the server to run off of FWG itself

If you don't feel like actually buying a minecraft account on top of that pm me and i can give you my info to put in it asks for a valid minecraft account.

oooooh srry i read that wrong last night
all minecraft servers are hosted on minecraftservers.org where people can vote for servers (as much as once per day) to bump them up the list, this would help get FWG more visits if other minecrafters find our server and like the userbase, giving us more active chatters
also most servers iv been on allow people to donate to them forr special stuff on the servers (items, protected plots of land no one can break, access to commands such as teleportation, and access to areas not all people are allowed in ect.) and a lot of people actually donate to get these percs if the server is good enough and they like the userbase.

I could also help to keep the server in line. Pretty much any mod/admin with Minecraft could, really.
