How to Create a Bukkit Minecraft Server

A Simple Guide to Install a Server on Windows 8 Platform

No experience required - to install a Bukkit Minecraft Server on Windows 8.

DURING THE 1970's late night TV News Buffalo public service announcement asked the question, "Do you know where your children are?" The somber question was usually asked around 11:00PM every night as a reminder to parents that it was curfew time. You can ask the same question today when you allow your children to participate in online gaming over the internet, "Do you know where your children are?" The difference today is that your children are freely roaming the information highway's virtual streets right in your own home. You give your children a computer with internet access they can logon to a public server and interact with complete strangers anywhere around the world.

How to Create a Bukkit Minecraft Server is a simple guide to show you how to install a Minecraft server on Windows 8 platform.

In this guide you will discover how to:

*Run the Minecraft Server on Windows 8

*Configure the Server Files

Why Build Your Own Server?

When you create your own server, you can control who your children interact with online through the game. This includes who they play against and most importantly who they communicate with during online gaming chat. With your own server you can prescreen opponents and players to confirm they are safe, and appropriate for your children to engage in online gaming with.
