We have a video guide on how to pick your Minecraft server type
Note: All server types are compatible with our services. Server types are just different software - we will always be able to support everything, even if it's custom-built.
MINECRAFT: POCKET / BEDROCK EDITION SERVER TYPES
|Bedrock Dedicated Server||Bedrock Dedicated Server (BDS) is the default version of Minecraft Pocket/Bedrock edition and does not have any modifications. This is the raw version provided by Mojang. We advise the use of this server type unless you really need plugins on your server.|
|PocketMine-MP||PocketMine-MP is used for adding plugins to your server, and is the most popular server type for doing this. However, it comes at the cost of not having mob spawning, or complex world generation (Such as the newer biomes, or underground structures such as caves and mineshafts).|
|Tesseract||Tesseract is a fork of PocketMine-MP and has also been very popular among MCPE server owners.|
Genisys was a popular fork of PocketMine-MP by the iTXTech team. However, Genisys is no longer updated.
GenisysPro is a continuation of the Genisys project. Unfortunately, this project is also no longer updated.
|BlueLight||BlueLight is another fork of PocketMine-MP.|
|Nukkit||Nukkit is an MCPE server type built-in Java (virtually all other MCPE servers are built in PHP). For this reason, it has been widely adopted by users and hosts who are unable to host in a PHP environment. It is also popular among users who are already familiar with Java - for example, users who had previously run servers for Minecraft PC.|
|ImagicalMine||ImagicalMine is a fork of PocketMine-MP which has been discontinued and is no longer updated.|
|Minecraft PC||We also support Minecraft PC with all of our plans. We have a separate article that outlines all of the main Minecraft PC server types. Click here for Minecraft PC server types.
