How to Advertise Your Minecraft Server

Minecraft servers are best when you get to play and enjoy the game with more players. For new server owners, it can be challenging to get players into your server which is why we will guide you through some tips and tricks to jump-start your very own Minecraft server community.

One of the popular ways to get players into your server is through advertising. But wait! Before you post your server advertisement, it is important to make sure your server is ready for players. Not only that, once your advertisement is published and players begin to join your server, you also want them to stay and even invite their friends to play on your server too. 

Our checklist below will help you prepare your server to make it more appealing and ensure player retention. It is recommended to go over this list before you advertise your server.

Tips to Increase Player Retention

  • Completely set up your Minecraft server (builds, permissions, ranks, shops, and other configurations) to prevent affecting server availability and performance. We have a YouTube playlist with all the tutorials to get started with your very own Minecraft server:

  • Use a custom domain / subdomain (e.g. mymcserver.com) as your server address to make it easier to remember and share. Follow our guide here: Setting Up a Custom Server IP (Domain / Subdomain)
  • Choose a game mode or server type that'll give players a unique experience. 
  • Invite your friends to play on your server to encourage new players to stay. The more, the merrier!
