What is MinecraftServers.org?

MinecraftServers.org is a multiplayer server list for Minecraft Java Edition servers.

How are servers ranked?

The rank of a server is determined entirely by the number of votes it has. Votes are reset for all servers on the 1st of each month.

How do I vote for a server?

Visit the page of the server you wish to vote for and click the green vote button. You will then be required to enter your Minecraft username and complete a Captcha.

Why is there a message saying I have already voted?

You are only allowed to vote for one server each day. You will be able to vote again after midnight (UTC timezone).

What is Votifier?

Votifier is a server plugin that lets server owners know when you have voted for them. Server owners can enable Votifier when adding or editing their server. More information can be found on the official plugin page.

How do I add my server to the list?

To add a server you must first create an account on MinecraftServers.org and verify your email address. Once you have done so, log in and click the 'add a server' button then enter the server details. You are only allowed to add a server if you are the owner or if you have been given permission by the owner.

There is an error when adding my server.

If your server is offline you won't be able to add it to MinecraftServers.org until it comes back online. If the server is online, make sure you have entered the hostname and port correctly, and also check if your firewall settings may be blocking connections from MinecraftServers.org. If you are still unable to add your server please contact us.

Why is the Players tab not showing on my server page?

In order for MinecraftServers.org to display a full player list you must set enable-query to true in your server.properties file. The query.port should be set to the same port as that of your server. It may take a few minutes once this has been enabled for the players tab to appear on the site.

Why has my server been deleted?

Servers may be removed for any number of reasons including:

  • Suspicious voting activity. Vote botting is against our terms of service and can result in your server being permanently banned.
  • Inappropriate server details. A server may be deleted if it contains content that violates our content standards (for example as part of the name, description or banner).
  • Low uptime. Servers which have been listed for more than 10 days are automatically deleted if the uptime falls below 25%.

Why has my banner been removed?

Banners may be removed if they violate the content standards set out in our acceptable use policy. For example, banners cannot be rapidly flashing or contain inappropriate material.

Why have votes for my server disappeared?

Votes are reset for all servers on the 1st of each month to provide fair competition for new servers.

What are sponsored servers?

Sponsored servers are servers that have purchased premium advertising on MinecraftServers.org. These servers show at the top on the homepage, category and version pages and also at the top of relevant search results. Sponsored servers can be identified by the star icon next to their name. For more information please see the sponsored servers page.

Feel free to contact us. MinecraftServers.org is not affiliated with any of the servers listed on our website, so if you have a question regarding a specific server you will need to contact them directly.
