hello! I am Mindcool24 and I am new, so tell me if this is wrong or something. Thanks!
I have a server (ip will remain undisclosed) and am wondering what the best way to to have a private server as well as an public one on the same ip. I will be hosting the 2 servers on my own computer, any help would be appreciated.
Run one server on a different port. You can specify this in your server.properties. I do the same thing. I have a public server running on the standard Minecraft port (25565), and a private, hardcore server running on another port (25575, for example), both on the same machine. Keep in mind, if your worlds are fairly large, or if you're expecting a lot of traffic, running two servers can eat up a lot of RAM and processor time. If you don't have a reasonably beefy PC, both of your servers could see some lag, and the PC won't be usable for much else while they are running.
