How to order a Minecraft Server with Shockbyte

Minecraft servers are a fun way to play Minecraft with your friends and other players all over the world. With Shockbyte, running a Minecraft server has never been this easy!

Shockbyte offers server hosting for both Minecraft Java and Bedrock Editions so you can run a server whether you play on a PC, mobile, tablet, console and any other supported devices. Not only that! We also support all server types available for Minecraft, giving you the freedom to choose any server type and version, and can change this any time you want.

If you're ready to kick-start your Minecraft server with Shockbyte, simply follow the guide below:


  1. From the top navigation menu of Shockbyte's website, click Rent a Minecraft Server.
    Rent a Minecraft server menu
  2. On the Minecraft plans page, select a server plan by clicking on Add to Cart directly below your chosen plan. 

    The right server plan for you will depend on the amount of RAM your server needs to support the amount of players you expect to host, the Server Type you want to run, the type and number of mods or plugins you intend to use, etc. If you're not sure how much RAM you will need, you may read our article here: How much RAM do I need for my Minecraft server?

    The plans listed on the page will show recommended slots which is the recommended number of players each plan can support. However, these are simply suggested numbers and you can adjust the number of players you can allow in your server regardless of your plan size. Learn more on player slots here: How many players can I host with my plan?
  3. On the order page, select your preferred billing cycle. By default, this is set to monthly. However, you may choose to pay for your server renewal on any of our available cycles explained below:
    • Monthly : Billed one (1) month after the previous one.
    • Quarterly : Billed three (3) months after the previous one.
    • Semi-Annually : Billed six (6) months or half a year after the previous one.
    • Annually : Billed 12 months or a full year after the previous one.
    Select Billing Cycle
  4. Under the Configurable Options section, select your preferred Server Location. If you do not know which location to choose, you may read our guide here: Which server location should I choose?
