You can learn to setup and manage servers. However managing a server is more difficult. You want your server to run smoothly even if you have to manage it on your own. To do this correctly, we suggest that you follow the following four tips.



The player slots You could have noticed that some servers aren't functioning correctly. Perhaps the server's owner doesn't realize that their server isn't able to support more than a specific amount of players. Minecraft, for example, makes use of RAM to serve users. You'll require a lot of RAM to be able to serve the players.

Your internet connection. Some games require a fast internet connection. One of these games is known as Ship Simulator Extremes. The game can lag if you don't have a speedy internet connection. Your connection should be capable of uploading at speeds between 10 to 20 Mbs. On the other side, Minecraft is fine with an upload speed of 0.5 Mbps.



Online Time Should your server remain always online? The answer is contingent on whether your server is accessible to the public. Now, if you want to use the server to connect a group of friends, there is no need to ensure it's online at all times.



On the other hand, if the server is accessible to the public, we suggest that you maintain it accessible 24/7. It is impossible to predict when your users will access your server. If they find that your server is not online most of the time, they are unlikely to come back again. If your server is public, ensure that you provide the best uptime possible to your users.



Do you require staff? You might not need an extensive staff to oversee your server. It all depends on the security status of your servers. You should hire a moderator to oversee your server while you're away, in case it is online.



But if you know that your server is secure and that no one is going to attempt to hack into your system, you don't need an abundance of staff. This is particularly true if the server is being used by a small number of users. MINECRAFT GAMES You can install safeguards in order to ensure that trolls are not able to access your system.
