McTrees was first founded by Robbie in 2014. Our server was run on an old overworked laptop. We had no registered domain and no proper network infrastructure. It was literally a laptop running the windows 'minecraft server'. Over the years, more joined the McTrees cause and we now have 4 admins, Robbie, Ben, Calvin and Oliver.
Later the next year, in september , we registered for a free DDNS account. With that we got our first ‘domain’: http://mctrees.ddns.net/ . early the next year we began hosting our first website. Its design can be found here in the McTrees archive . This site was still being hosted on an overworked laptop with WAMP (a free piece of software) as the web server.
At the start of 2016 we registered our first ‘proper’ domain, mctrees.net. With that came updates to our hosting and networking. At this point we were running the site with an old desktop, that was certainly better suited to the task.
A few months later we redesigned the website. This design stuck, with a few minor alterations, for over a year. Unfortunately, you cannot find this in the McTrees Archive, as it was destroyed during the transition to the new site.
We have load balancing and redundancy as well as a plethora of security and backup features. In april 2017 we finally overhauled the main design of website to be compliant with google's material design language as well as a lot more intuitive to the end-user. The new design features better mobile support and is more resource efficient. You are viewing the current design right now.
