Starting your first Minecraft server.

1. Login to your Multicraft panel using admin credentials

2. Click on Create server button on the left-hand side.

3. Fill in Server description on the following fields:

Name: Enter your server name
Player Slots: Enter your desired maximum players count
Memory: Enter maximum allocated memory for the Minecraft server. If you are planning running only single Minecraft server, you can enter almost all VPS memory (as for an example if you purchase VPS server with 2GB memory, you can enter 1024 in memory field and later increase if needed). Note that you shouldn't apply all the available memory, you must leave at least 1024MB for reserve that server won't disconnect you randomly.

All these server settings can be adjusted at a later time.

4. Click on the Create button and then on the Start button.

You can view and control the server from the command line by clicking on the Console button.

In order to edit Minecraft server settings such as (Difficulty, Game Mode, Spawn Monsters, Spawn NPC, etc) navigate to Files >> Config >> Server Settings. After the adjustments, restart your Minecraft server.

Server configuration tips.

Online Mode - If you wish to run your Minecraft server with cracked (non-official) Minecraft launchers. Change you will have to access your server.properties file in Config Files option and change online mode to disabled.

Enabled - Allows players to connect to the server only if they are using official Minecraft launcher.
Disabled - Allows players to connect with cracked (non-official) Minecraft launchers.

Render Distance - This declares how many chunks (16x16x256 block size) is the maximum view distance of the player to every side.

16 - Best for Enderman Plan or Herobrine Plan servers (might decrease performance significantly while being used on other plans).
10 - (Default) Best for most of the plans.
8 - Best for Alex plan.

Net Compression Threshold - This option caps the size of a packet before the server attempts to compress it. Setting it higher can save some resources at the cost of bandwidth, setting it to -1 disables it.

512 - (Recommended)
256 - (Default)
