Since it’s a popular game, players would rather build their own game servers than find the server version they need. That way, they can tailor the server to their needs and preferences. Additionally, they can also build communities by inviting other players, and they could potentially earn money doing it.

1. Find the hosting plan that fits your needs and pay for the service.
