The Dirthut has a new server!


Thanks to the immense support from the Dirthut community, I have been able to afford and put together parts for a brand new server computer. This upgrade not only increases the look of the Dirthut community, but also expands possibilities in server hosting! I am looking to expand our servers as soon as we have returned to normal operations, with the Minecraft server, TeamSpeak and Forums. I will be taking suggestions from the community on what servers to host, but ONLY after we have returned to this normal operation and everything is stable.


This new server will result in improved reliability and redundancy, however this does not mean all issues will be resolved straight away. In the initial stages, there are likely to be many restarts due to updates and re-configurations. Furthermore, it is important to note that the server is still being hosted from home, on the same internet connection. I will be actively working on improving the up-time, but there are never any guarantees, this is important to remember.


I hope now that we have a more capable server, the Dirthut will continue to grow as a community, and at an even faster rate. We will be working with other communities to build a safe and fun environment for gamers to come together and enjoy themselves. The Dirthut is all about keeping people together, and I have made it a big part of my life and hope to continue doing what I do, for the betterment of others.


Again, thank you for all of the continued support and donations, and an EXTRA special thanks to ConnorJSmart and Baker2491 who both contributed a HUGE amount to the completion of the server! Follow their Twitters here: @ConnorJSmart @pntsteven




Upon receiving all parts for the server, some people wanted me to stream the creation - although it's not any different than building any other computer, but anyway, I did stream it and a cool-sick-MLG montage of it is below. I built it to the point of it being able to function, but then went off camera to sort out the cable management and ensure it was setup for the best operation, but didn't stream that part as it's tedious, but anyway... ENJOY! (There are also attached images of the finished server, if you happen to be interested)
