If you don't know what one is, you probably don't need one.

They are external modules that change how a serer works. They are used to extend functionality above and beyond what the standard server software does.

If this concept confuses you then you should probably do more research (like read the wiki) before starting a server.

Pease see the Creating a server wiki page for more information. You don't have to register there if you don't want to.

Unless you already understand what it means that the server must "be able to accept incoming connections on a fixed port" (as it says in the overview on that wiki page) you will probably find the whole process too difficult and frustrating. We do not have a tutorial that explains every detail.
