How to Install Minecraft Bedrock Dedicated Server (BDS)

We have a video tutorial on how to install Bedrock Dedicated Server:


Bedrock Dedicated Server (BDS) is the official server software for Minecraft Bedrock Edition that was released by Mojang. Shockbyte is the first and only server host that offers server hosting for BDS.


  1. If you don't have a Minecraft server yet, you will first need to order one from Shockbyte. You can view our server plans on our website.
  2. Once you have your server: on the server control panel, select a Bedrock Dedicated Server version from the Server Type dropdown menu.
  3. Select OK on the popup box that appears when you choose the server version. This will redirect you to a new page.
  4. Ensure the correct template version is selected (it should be selected by default) and then select Apply.

Now the next time you start your server, your server will be running the official Bedrock Dedicated Server software.
