Hi @jaredbergenstock,

For such a small server, I’ll suggest the smallest plan available. The fact that you’ll be you and 2 other friends using the server means it won’t endure heavy load. As such, there is no need to go overboard and acquire a larger Droplet.

Regarding your second question, to create a Minecraft server, I’ll recommend you to take a look at:

This is a tutorial which will guide you through the process of doing so.

I would suggest the 1024MB RAM plan. 512MB Causes a ton of lag…
