What is Minecraft Hosting?

Minecraft is an open-world sandbox game where players mine for ores, build shelters, and fight off mobs that approach during the night. Players are challenged to survive and explore the landscape of the game.

In Minecraft some of the things you can achieve include fighting the Ender dragon, along with going to the Nether. Along with Vanila Minecraft there is an array of mods and additional plugins you can add to enhance your experience with friends.

What is Paper?

Paper Minecraft is a modified version of the popular sandbox game Minecraft that is designed to run on dedicated servers. It is based on the open-source server software called Spigot, which is a fork of the Bukkit project.

Paper Minecraft offers several performance improvements over the vanilla Minecraft server software, such as faster chunk loading, improved tick rate, and reduced lag. It also provides additional features, such as a more powerful plugin API, customizable spawn points, and improved command handling.

Paper Minecraft is popular among Minecraft server administrators and players who are looking for a more stable and optimized server experience. It supports a wide range of plugins and mods, including those created for Bukkit and Spigot servers, making it a versatile and flexible platform for creating customized Minecraft servers.
