If you're looking to play Minecraft with a specific version, you can easily change the version on your server using our user-friendly interface.
Guides for running your Minecraft server.
In some cases you might want to allow unauthenticated Minecraft users to be able to join your server. For example, when one or more of your friends doesn't have an official Minecraft account and is using a cracked client.
Are you receiving the error "the authentication servers are currently not reachable" when trying to join your Minecraft server? This is likely not an issue with your Minecraft server.
Minecraft servers will always be given a SRV record for the subdomain, but support might not be available for earlier game versions. We recommend using the subdomain to connect the game, which allows you to transfer the server and use a new IP address without updating the address with your players.
Insecure mode on Minecraft server's enables users with "less than legitimate" versions of Minecraft to connect to your server. It does this by disabling the requirement for the server to validate account data with Mojang before allowing the user to connect to a server.
