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. Users can harness many of the advantages associated with dedicated servers, at just a fraction of the price. Like a bare metal server, the allocated resources of a VPS are dedicated solely to you— so you will get lightning-speed performance, quick landscape rendering and lag-free gameplay without any impact from neighbouring customers.
