You will need to buy hosting from a dedicated hoster some are listed at https://wiki.jc-mp.com/Server/Hosts.
They usually install the basic server with default scripts for you.If you want to install more scripts search in the releases section of the forum.

You can also run the server from your home PC but that's not a great idea.
If you wanted to just anounce your server to the server browser edit the config.lua.
Code: [Select]
-- Controls whether the server announces its presence to the master server
    -- and therefore to the server browser.
    -- Default value: true
    Announce                    = true,

Another option - and in my opinion the best one for a production server - is running the jc2mp server from a VPS (virtual private server) that you can rent monthly from a provider. The two most popular are DigitalOcean and OVH.

thats  a good insane deal however you have to deal with command line linux witch is not something most people can handle ( including me).
Also considering the OP didn't returned i think he abandoned the idea.

The JC2MP documentation has some good info on exactly what you need to type in the console to install the jc2mp server on a linux distro.

OP has probably abandoned the idea, but this post might help future people so our answers aren't completely futile  ;)
