Having a whitelist can be quite vital if you have plans on creating a private server. This will only allow players that you add to the whitelist to connect to your server. Anyone else that tries to connect will be blocked from connecting, this keeps your server private and secure. This is great for safety because even though only you should be the only one to know the IP address, sometimes friends will give it out to others who could potentially grief the server.
We always recommend that you add a whitelist to your Minecraft server. Here at Apex, we give each of our users a unique IP, but there is no other protection than this. Whitelisting is the first line of defense to prevent unauthorized users from connecting to your server and potentially damaging your world. Activating a whitelist is very simple and we will walk you through the steps.
Activating the whitelist for Java Edition
Activating the whitelist for Bedrock Edition
Adding players to the whitelist
Removing players from the whitelist
In the console, make sure you are typing these with no /. If you are wanting to use these commands in-game, make sure to use a /.
Whitelist on - This activates the whitelist Whitelist off - This disables the whitelist Whitelist add playername - This will add a player to the whitelist Whitelist remove playername - This will remove a player from the whitelist Whitelist list - This will list the players who have been added to the whitelist
Getting the “Not implemented” message when attempting to activate whitelist from the console.
In Bedrock Edition, the whitelist needs to be enabled through the server.properties. Stop the server, head to Config Files, then Server Settings, change “whitelist” to true and press save. Once you do that, just start the server and all you need to do is add players with the “whitelist add playername” command.
