Can I pay the $40 for a minecraft server and not pay monthly? If so, what website.
You cannot pay the $40 for a minecraft server hosting and then forfeit paying the monthly subscription fee. The very basic 5-player Minecraft servers usually start with or at $5.00 per month with Canary and Bukkit.
you could go to www.minecraftforfree.com/ and play for free every time but u have 2 lie and say you arent using it as a replacement.
