Hello there, community! My husband and I want to "gift" a Minecraft server to our friend but we need suggestions as for which service to use. We already use a free service to play together but we can only play when our friend opens it up since his computer is basically the 'host server'. I don't know what service he uses so I can't answer questions about how that works, unfortunately.
It would just be for the three of us and occasionally a handful of friends. We're currently on a Galacticraft kick so we need a service that hosts modded servers. We want to pay for a full year of hosting and after that the three of us will figure it out. If you use a service like this please let me know what you think of it and if you would recommend it to others. If you need to know anything else just ask. Links would be greatly appreciated!
