Nope, it may take a minute until it's added to the list but if you have a 0.4.?? version (or newer), it shouldn't be a problem.
If it doesn't show up, then it's a problem with your settings.

I find I can not enter 127.0.0.1 with the above error but I can go with my internal ip no problem??

This thing is totally outdated btw.

This tutorial is up-to-date and works fine with 0.4.13.

You need the default gateway address to get to the router managing site. Explained in step 2.

Ok, I'm confused... I see all of these things saying type "C:\Users\YourName\Documents\minetest-0.4.9\bin\minetest.exe" --server --worldname TheWorldName". Now, how is "worldname" different from "TheWorldName"? Also, I am assuming that I could create a singleplayer world, make it how I want it, and use that as my server world? How do I use that as my server world, but with all the settings? BTW I am actually using Xubuntu but I do recall the commands mostly being the same...

You write "C:\Users\(or wherever you have Minetest)\bin\minetest.exe" --server --worldname And now where TheWorldName is write your world name.

And yes you can create singleplayer world and then use it as however you want on the server.

World name is the parameter name, you must not change it.

When you write --worldname you're saying that the next word after that will be the worldname.

You need your pc to be on if you want to host a server this way. Other than that, you can pay for a domain or a vps to host your server on.
