This guide will show you a few steps that may improve your server performance.

If your server is running any of the 1.14.x versions of Minecraft, please read this article first: Minecraft 1.14.x. Why this lag?

Decrease your TickSpeed

You can decrease your TickSpeed by using the command /gamerule randomTickSpeed 2 inside the game on your server. You will need to be an OP for this. If you don't know how to become an OP, please read our How to: OP Yourself on Your Minecraft Server article.

Decrease your server View-Distance

To decrease your View Distance:
Log into your Multicraft Panel

Click on "Servers". Go to your server.

Stop your server

Click on "Files", then "Config Files"

Click on "Server Settings".

Find the "View Distance" box, and change it to a lower number such 5 or 4.

Automatic Restarts

Automatic restarts unload heavy chunks that are still loaded on your server and damaging your server's performance. You can set your server to automatically restart at a time when players are not using your server following our Scheduled Restarts article.

Use PaperSpigot

We highly recommended that you use PaperSpigot instead of your current Minecraft file.
PaperSpigot is much more lightweight and has many features that allow you to improve your performance. Once your server is running on PaperSpigot, you can follow this article: Improve Spigot Performance to increase your server's performance.

Once you server is on PaperSpigot, you can use the /timings command to see your timings.

Upgrade your service

Upgrading your service to a server with more RAM or switching to the premium plan may improve your performance. This is especially true on servers that have a lot of plugins or mods that use more RAM.

Feel free to open a ticket in your client area if you need any assistance.
