Minecraft Realm Server Tips and Tricks?

The kids are getting older, but they still all like playing Minecraft.
They also have friends who play Minecraft (on lots of platforms).
I thought it might be nice to get them a private server for xmas.
I floated it with the older kid who says it would be fun.

Seems like it isn’t expensive to just buy hosting for a year, so I don’t have to think about security or uptime. I think realms so it is available on lots of platforms.

Is there stuff I need to think about with this approach? I’m not a minecraft player, except in the most casual sense. I can do software things or admin a server, but I’m in this for fun, not to spend 4 hours a month looking at logs or patching services.

Any recommendations?

    I'd look at hosts like Apex or shockbyte that offer custom server management portals, makes it pretty easy to manage stuff without having to deal with the technical details
