Why pay for something that you can easily do for yourself through a little bit of Port-Forwarding. Most people could easily host a 2-5 player Server for free.
Many people, including myself, don't want to host servers on our own home networks because of security issues, and because server maintenance is quite a lot of work. I had one running for a while, but I got rid of it because I was too lazy to keep it running. Most people would just pay a small amount of money every month rather than worry about getting their network hacked, or keeping the server online and updated.
Would you need to have a Mojang account to join a server? Another question is does it cost money to get a Mojang account? I have Mcpe and I'm wondering if this will allow people from the country to join our servers.
Mojang accounts are free. Instead of logging in with your Minecraft username, you'd log in with the email adress you purchased Minecraft with. I wouldn't think you'd need a mojang account though. I'm pretty sure that people would be able to join your server around the world, if you whitelisted them.
its probably bee like the server on xbox push a button & friend go online easy like that it can be nothing more easier,,,,, but the pc version right now we need to get a server of our hown cause if i whant too play with friend on pc i need too create a server or get one that host one the miinecraft server is none existent right now on pc ecept if it is local,,,
