The place to advertise a server is not in the sub-forum.
However, there are plenty of places to post server topics:

If your server is survival, post here: http://www.minecraft...rvival-servers/

If its a creative server, post here: http://www.minecraft...eative-servers/

Other places to advertise
-Minestatus (useful to create a banner to put in signatures)
-Reddit Server Listings
-YouTube, if you have an account with subscribers who might be willing to stop by your server.

Good luck with getting started, although many people don't like to join hamachi servers because they tend to run slowly.

Yeah, sorry, Hamachi servers aren't really that popular. I once ran a Hamachi server, it only got up to 6-7 players at once. Then, I upgraded to a server host and I got up to 15-20+ players on at once. :)

Reddit, YouTube video, Planet Minecraft, here on the forums.

I highly recommend getting Hamachi as there is no reason why anyone would really want to join a hamachi server when there are plenty of regular servers out there. I'd also recommend getting a dedicated server, as home-run, non-24/7 servers also deter players.

You should look into port forwarding, Hamachi really limits the growth of your server's community. but to answer your question, there's a bunch of ways to advertise a server, here's just a few ideas:
  • make a minecraft forums signature
  • make a thread on the minecraft forums about your server
  • post on server-listing sites like Minestatus or PlanetMinecraft
  • if your good with videos make a youtube account for your server
  • spread the word in person to friends you know play minecraft
  • set up a reward system that rewards people for recruiting new people to the server.
hope this gets you started :)

Just type in minecraft server list and you should get a load of websites that are popular. Advertising on the forums would give you loads of players :)

Good places to advertise:


You should submit the server to all these sites, and maybe even find some more!
