Do I have to keep my computer on to keep a server running?

  1. I was always wandering how to make a minecraft multiplayer server, so I asked my uncle today how to make one and he says
    that to have a server up in any game you need to leave your
    computer on the whole time or the server will get deleted.

    Is this the same with minecraft?
    So, to make a multiplayer world
    I need to leave my computer on the whole time?

    Please help!

  1. The world won't get deleted (as long as you shut it down properly) but no one will be able to connect to it when it's not up and running.

  1. Yes you do, but the server saves when you close it, just make sure to close it by typing "stop" (without quotes) in to the console.
