Minecraft Plan : BIg Server Plan

Last year ago, I did use Digital Ocean services and it was messed up due to unknown reason, like, server shut down with no errors or java errors. Until figure out that Ram is not enough even though already add Swap Ram.

So I`m back again, with plan to get 4GB VPS Server. This time, I like to ask friends about this. I wanted to ask, since I plan to make this server a 1-100 players, 4GB Server is enough to make a server or no, or should I get 6GB instead?

If its not enough, any suggestion for the improvements? Thanks :)

OS Preference : CentOS 6 64-bit Ram Suggestion : 4-6GB rams Player Based : 1 to 100 players. Connection : Singapore

Hi @murut85

It’s hard to say precisely, having said that looking at the following page in the Minecraft fandom wiki - https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Server/Requirements/Dedicated

It suggests 5GB of RAM for 5 to 7 people on the server. This does seem a little bit extreme. With that said, I’ll recommend getting a droplet with about 2 to 3 GB of RAM and upgrade it afterward if needed.

Additionally, don’t forget to add SWAP to your Droplet as well.

thanks, i plan to use alongside with multicraft, since i got the keys to go along with :) I will contact you when there`s a question wanted to ask about.

Hello @murut85 I think you can start with a 4gb droplet and upgrade as need it, you have to consider if all the 100 users will be playing at same time or not. Also consider hiding your droplet behind Cloudflare for DDoS protection.
