How to make a Minecraft server on Raspberry Pi

If you want to create a private Minecraft world that you can share with your friends online, you need a place to host that experience. You can pay $7.99 per month for minecraft kingdoms (opens in a new tab)which is easy to use but doesn’t have all the customization options or you can rent a minecraft server from a paid hosting service like byte shock (opens in a new tab). Or you can set up your own Minecraft server on a Raspberry Pi and have it hosted right from your living room for free.

Note that you’ll need a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4, preferably a 4 with at least 2 GB of RAM. And all traffic on the server will be going in and out through your home internet service, so if you plan on having a ton of users all the time, it can eat up some bandwidth. But if you’re just planning to play with a few friends, creating a Raspberry Pi Minecraft server is easy, cheap, and fun.
