Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Who are we?
Minecraft-Server.net is a list of Minecraft Servers, server owners ask thier players to vote to help increase the rank in our server list. By default, we sort our database of servers by vote count numbers, highest to lowest.
Q. What is 'Active Today'?
Active Today is a table displayed next to the main list, it contains minecraft servers that have been 'bumped' by the server owner. Bumps can be performed once a day for free members and once every 8 hours for Gold members. This feature is designed to help servers with no advertising budget to be able to grow thier userbase without paying on the front page of a large list.
Q. What does 'Players Delivered' mean?
Players Delivered is our metric used to determine the minimum amount of users we have sent to your server. To ensure that this number is an accurate representation, the same checks that are used for voting users are applied to players delivered. This number includes unique clicks on the 'COPY' button and/or the 'WEBSITE' button and displayed in the User Control Panel. IP addresses copied from inside the box itself are not added to the total, this is why 'Total Players Delivered' is a minimum amount, the total is likely higher.
Q. How much traffic does this website get?
We like to be open about our numbers; we display all of our traffic infomation from Google Analytics, the total amount of votes performed each day, how many servers are tagged as online and offline to our Traffic Statistics. You can find it here: https://minecraft-server.net/overall-stats/
Q. What is Gold?
Gold is a paid membership service that grants additional benefits to your server: You are able to 'bump' your server three times a day (once every 8 hours) over the free memberships once a day. Your server will have a golden background on the main list. Your server will recieve an additional 20 votes on a daily basis. Your banner upload file size is increased from 400KB to 1MB. Your servers icon (which is downloaded from your server files) will be displayed on the main list. Priority support is given to users with Gold Membership.
Q. What is Sponsor?
Sponsor is a service which is designed to get maximum traffic to your server from the website traffic we provide, your server is placed in one of the top six slots under the title of 'Sponsored Servers' above the main list. The Sponsored servers are sorted by vote count, the same as the main list. Custom buttons are displayed which tell the user what each buttons action is, 'WEB' being a direct website link to your servers website and 'COPY' sets the users clipboard to your servers IP address. Guaranteed Players are provided to server who purchase a Sponsored Slot.
