What do we offer?
We offer you a 100% Free Minecraft Server for private purposes. This servers are designed to play survival with your friends and not to open your own 24/7 public server. So all of this servers are whitelisted and they are just as long online as you need them. We use the official server software "Vanilla", so you can't install any plugins or anything else. You can just edit some basic options in our webinterface.
How can we offer this for free?
We are hosting Aternos on a small server which doesn't costs much. But we will soon expand on a bigger server. We just thought of the problem some of you maybe know. You want to play some basic survival with your friends but you don't want to install a homeserver or pay for a server. Aternos will solve this problem. We've seen some guys doing equal projects but with other goals. They want to earn money, they force you to like them on Facebook and so on. We wanted to do this really for free and we are looking forward to your Feedback which helps us to know that we are doing the right thing.
What do I have to do to get a free server?
It's easy. Just visit http://aternos.de, sign up and create your server. We don't force you to like us on Facebook, but it's a nice way to say "Thank you" and help us to get more users. You can also follow us on Twitter.
It's alright ShawnEyBoy, there is no catch, I tried it already! It works, now it's updated there are plugins, FTB and Technic Launcher Modpacks, and still the plain o' vanilla servers we adore. But we can also set it to whitelist and non-whitelist. It's totally free, trust me. Try it yourself now won't you? No downloads, no surveys, none of that stuff you hate to get scammed about. Just register with your email and password and then you can start your server with a max number of 10 people on the server. However (this may be the catch), when there are less than the max # of people on the server, the # of people not on there will be called as 'Warning Points' (the server checks every 5 min.), when you get at least 10 of those, the server will close, and the Warning Points will reset after 5 min. I think. So yea no catches. Just try it out. I've been using it, and it's awesome. -L23de
I love this site! I use it all the time! The only thing I dont like is the Warn Points. It is really easy to get 10!
Hi, since it's kinda easy to get warning points (server checks every 5 min.) just set your warning points to the max # of people that's going to join in the timeframe you're on. Then warning points will not be held anymore and your free to go unless someone logs out.But all in all, i like this site too! -L23de
Hi, I was wondering what the "Redeem Key" feature did. I was wondering if it was something that you pay for to get more capabilities with aternos. Which if that is the case then i would be more than happy to pay for one.
Hey, I just started using Aternos hosting services. I was looking through it, and I noticed an option called "Redeem Key". What does that do and where/how does one get said "Key"? Thanks! Loving this server host!
