Our cloud hosted Minecraft Servers allow you to set up your game servers, so you can play Minecraft using your own rules. This article outlines the ordering process.
Choose Your Plan
- Follow this link and choose the Hippo Minecraft service that you require.
Domain Name Options
You are not presented with the domain options during the Hippo Minecraft order process, as with our standard hosting products. This is because most game server users prefer to access their server using the IP address only and not the domain name. If, however, you wish to buy a domain name for your Hippo Minecraft instance, you can do so by following this link separately. You can either configure the DNS yourself in your Hippo Portal, or ask one of our support team to do this for you at https://help.hipposerve.co.uk. You can also request help, in using a domain you already own.
Choose Your Billing Cycle
- You can select, either monthly, annually or a triennially billing cycle.
Configure The Instance Options
