this link still works the replied comment “here you go” links to the file from amazonws. kinda of an old file archive. that installer will set up a 1.7.10 server. will need to install forge for that server as well and put in the mod files like normal.
i haven’t ever used server hosting, from what i understand they set up the server and load what mods you want.. I have heard some work out the details and others let the person renting it remote dial in to change files… but in essence you’d need that core server file and load in the mods and all of that. I’m assuming they would help with connecting to the server. I’d check with the server host customer support they should be able to let you know what they help with and what server set ups they have copies of.
