Minecraft is an extremely enjoyable game where you can practically do anything you desire! But playing with friends across the internet can be a pain sometimes. Sadly, most multiplayer servers are either filled with trolls, not the gameplay experience you want or are simply too laggy. The other option is to host a LAN world, but you have to be connected to the same wifi as your friend. Setting up your own private servers seems to be a very daunting task (They are!) for any type of Minecraft player. But what if I told you, that you can have your own private server with endless customization in a few mouse clicks! Oh also... ANYONE CAN DO IT!
