EmeraldServers.com is a server listing website. Server owners can register their server to be found by players, and players can find here their new favourite server.
We aim to help small and beginning servers reach more players for them to grow.
The bigger servers are also welcome to register on EmeraldServers.com to be found. Our promotional activities might be focused on activities being more benefit full to the smaller servers than the bigger ones.

When you go to the server page on EmeraldServers.com there is, above the server information, a "Vote" button.
If you click the Vote button you will have to fill in your Minecraft user name and a reCaptcha to make sure you are human.
Please note, you are only allowed, and able, to vote once a day. Misus of the vote system may result in the server being deleted.

Before you can add your server you need to register an account and verify your email address. Once you have an account you can add a server by clicking "add server" under "account".
Here you can fill in all the server details and add a banner.
