Eliminate Monthly Fees

Some games like Minecraft offer a monthly subscription for access to their online servers, but with Unraid, you can host as many servers for as many games as you want, absolutely free!

Customize Your Experience

One of the advantages of hosting your own servers is the ability to load custom maps, mods, or just change game server rules. Make the experience unique and your own!

Better Performance

Host your own game server for your next LAN party and experience the fastest connection possible. You’ll have the lowest latency and least amount of desync compared to any online-hosted experience.

Password-Protect Your Game Servers

Prevent unwanted trolls and toxic players from joining your games. Protect your children from online predators. Hosting your own game servers and password protecting them lets you have the ultimate control over who can participate.
