How to Set Your Minecraft Server Spawn

We have a video tutorial to set spawn location in Minecraft:


The spawn (spawn point) is a location in a Minecraft world where a player or entity is generated. For servers, this is where new players will be located when joining for the first time.

Players will also re-spawn on this location upon death when they have not used a bed or changed their individual spawn point. A lot of servers, through the use of mods or plugins, have a /spawn command which allows a player to teleport back to the world's spawn point.

Command: /setworldspawn

  • This command will set a Minecraft world's spawn point to the current location of the player who issued the command. This must be used in-game and can only be done by a server operator. 
    (Related article: Giving Operator to a Player)
  • When used with coordinates X, Y, and Z, the spawn point will be changed to the specified coordinates. This command can be used in the server console. Example: /setworldspawn 10 65 22


Command: /spawnpoint

  • This command sets an individual player's spawn point. This may not be available to players depending on how permissions are set up. 
  • Using this command with a player name will set the current location of the command issuer as that specified player's spawn point. Example: /spawnpoint Steve
  • Using this command with a player name and coordinates X, Y, and Z will set that player's spawn point to the specified coordinates. Example: /spawnpoint Steve 10 65 22
  • When a player uses a bed after their spawn point was set using this command, their spawn location will be changed to their bed's location. when the bed is broken, their spawn point will be reset to that of the world spawn.
