Residence is a tool that will allow you to protect any area of land (for a price) if you're not interested in joining a town. After setting up a residence your house/items will be protected from others. You may go further and prevent mobs or even players from entering - either by group or by playername.

Watch the video for a better visual, but you need to use the paper to mark two opposing corners of the area in need of protection. Then extend the selection to bedrock and sky:

/res select vert

Then create a name, and you'll be automatically charged a rate equal to the current price multiplied by the size of the region you're protecting:

/res create [name]
