On repl.it? Probably but I don't know. It should work because repl.it supports Java

Welp, the server jar is a very heavy file, so importing it was a little rocky. Getting everything configured was weird, too. You have 500MB CPU to work with, but even with the 2GB the Hacker plan gives you (which is what I had at the time) it wasn't long before the editor started crashing due to how much was going on.

It's possible! Hosting your own server is not a bad idea. Not all of the Majnkraft servers are capable of meeting your expectations. However, if you look, you can find a lot of cool servers and different mods and plugins. There are whole lists of the best servers. Some of the most exciting are Prison MC servers. Here you can take on different roles with the ability to develop and promote your character. You can become a jailer or vice versa and try to escape from the prison cell and escape from prosecution. All this can be done in many different ways. That's why everyone loves these servers.
