What's the best OS to host a server on for a total noob?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/admincraft

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Geyser

    A bridge/proxy allowing you to connect to Minecraft: Java Edition servers with Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.

    I don't se the point of a GUI if you only want to run Minecraft servers. I strongly recommend Linux, because 1: Windows costs a crap ton of money 2: Even Microsoft uses Linux on their servers. Also, you don't need two separate servers for Java and Bedrock, you can use Geyser on Java.

  • Caddy

    Fast, multi-platform web server with automatic HTTPS

    - Pterodactyl is pretty nice, but if you are going to install it, PLEASE purchase a domain, and take the time to learn how to use something like Caddy to automatically grab an HTTPS certificate for you so you can secure the connection to your server. Otherwise, you'll be exposing your Minecraft server files to anyone with a bit of hacking experience, as everything you send to the server will not be encrypted (this is also why you never use FTP).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

    Public git conversion mirror of OpenBSD's official CVS src repository. Pull requests not accepted - send diffs to the [email protected] mailing list.
