NFO or Realms?

Post by alexis92 »

Just wanted to real quick ask what would be the benefits of going for NFO hosting for a MC server rather than the in-built Minecraft Realms service they have? Is there a sizable difference in customization or stability perhaps?

Realms is basically just Mojang's way of cashing in on the server hosting business. The general consensus seems to be that for customizable servers or large public servers it doesn't do well, and is mainly just intended for private multiplayer parties.

Realms is definitely convenient, but for hosting anything more than a friend or two, I'd go with a server provider and likely a modded server jar like Paper. The performance of the vanilla server jar is not particularly good, especially for chunk generation.
