This is our review of SeekaHost Minecraft Server Hosting. And more specifically, modded servers you can host with them.
Minecraft is one of the best-selling games in the world, there is still a large majority enjoying the modifications that Minecraft offers. So we will be looking and rating the modded server-side of SeekaHost hosting services.
How we Assess Our SeekaHost Minecraft Server Hosting Review
Firstly how Easy Is it to get Hosting, as this always factors into getting your server. There is nothing worse than having a problem with setup before you even start trying to set up your server.
It’s important that it’s simple, quick and the service that is offered is given. Live support or tickets also help.
Secondly, are we able to use the dashboard, and create a modded server? We will be trying single mods and Modpacks also. It is important that your ability to load mods, delete them and be able to change them around.
Thirdly, support and how easy it is to get help if you run into a problem. Again another vital step as modding Minecraft servers can sometimes lead to some mistakes. Therefore it’s vital to have support for the service that can get you out of that pickle.
How Easy Is It To Get Hosting with SeekaHost?
In terms of making an account and finding a package, I haven’t got any complaints. I found a package on the main page, we went for the “Gold Sword package” giving us the following features.
- 36 Player Slots
- 4GB Ram
- Modpack Support
- Custom Domain
The price was $12 per month which I found very reasonable compared to apex’s $14.99 per month. After paying for the service I got sent to the client area from which we were able to navigate to the multicraft panel of where you operate your server fairly easily.
Is It Simple To Use And Create a Modded Server?
We were glad when we saw the multicraft control panel as this is a great way to manage your server. We have used it previously with other hosts and it lets you change your server easily and gives you a ton of options to configure.
The custom domain option is one of the easiest we have seen, with just the option to type from your dashboard and create a custom domain then and there.
Now the first test of Adding Single Mods. We prefer forge so we followed the instructions from a video they had in their knowledgebase. It was fairly straightforward, delete old server files, change the jar to forge 1.12.2 (that’s what mods we tested) save the server and start it.
We weren’t disappointed as within a few minutes we had our forge server. Then it was a case of uploading mods through the FTP files access and we joined on seamlessly. I was actually surprised as sometimes modding servers with some hosts can turn out to be a bit of a nightmare. However, so far so good with this SeekaHost Minecraft Review.
With the single mods done (we installed some from their top 5 Minecraft Gun mods page) we wanted to test their mod pack installer. So again we followed a “how to add a modpack to your server” tutorial. This again was fairly straightforward, we deleted old files. Changed the setup and server jar, switched the base directory from the drop-down, and picked a mod pack. After starting the server we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was done and we went on and played some Rogue-like Adventures and Dungeons.
Support and Getting Help With a Server Problem
Just to make it around test we sent a ticket asking about changing it to a Bedrock server from a modded server. Our reply was swift, and they are not only explained to us what we need to do along with a video link but they offered to help us do it if we needed. We politely declined as said we would follow the video.
Another great support site with lots of tutorials on the SeekaHost servers is Jdog Official, here it has tutorials ranging from server tutorials, world tutorials, and even some bedrock content.
Overall we are thrilled with the service and support. The server ran smoothly and further support was also fast and friendly as we ended up keeping the server acts as the kids loved it. We hope you have found this SeekaHost Minecraft Hosting Review useful.
