The Disadvantages of Hosting a Home Minecraft Server

Posted on by bisecthosting

For many Minecraft players, the game experience is the connections you make in multiplayer. For this to work, players will have to find the perfect server for their own gameplay goals.

One easy solution for this is creating a server. But while this is the right move for most players, hosting that server at home might not be.

Let’s go over the disadvantages of hosting a home Minecraft server.


Minecraft servers require routine maintenance and upkeep, especially if you have an active and large playerbase.

If Minecraft servers aren’t maintained, they can go down and keep players from joining or playing. There are also many technical issues that can wreak havoc on home Minecraft servers.
