Minecraft server versions

Every Popular Version

Our control panel comes with the most popular Minecraft server versions available. After you decide between Java Edition or Bedrock you can further refine the software that will be the heart of your server. You will choose the initial version during checkout but can adjust this at any time as many times as you would like.

If you decide to go with a Java Edition server that is preferred by PC based players, there are many more options to consider. If you would like to customize your own server plugins are a great way to do this on Spigot, Bukkit or Paper. If you are looking to create a minigame server such as Paintball or MCMMO you can use one of our packages that has everything you need already installed and configured. If you are more of a mod person you will use Forge as the server version and decide which mods to leverage. There are also tons of great modpacks available in the panel so give a few a try from great creators like Technic, FTB and more.

Don't worry if you aren't exactly sure which version you want to start with as our support team can help you decide and change it if you would like. Every version provides a different experience and we recommend that you try many different ones to always have a great time playing with friends on your server.
