How to Purchase a Dedicated IP (Default Port)

What is a Dedicated IP?

Dedicated IP

A Dedicated IP is a server address that uses the default port for Minecraft. The default port varies between the editions of Minecraft you have.

  • 25565 - default port for Minecraft PC/Java Edition
  • 19132 - default port for MinecraftBedrock Edition

Because the Dedicated IP lets your server run on the default port, your IP automatically points to the port assigned to your server. This means that if your full server address is 192.168.2.1:25565, you can join your server just by using the IP which 192.168.2.1 without the port. The same goes when using a custom domain/subdomain. Instead of mydomain.com:25565, you will only need to use mydomain.com.

How Can I Get a Dedicated IP For My Server?

In order to get the default Minecraft port (25565 or 19132), you need to purchase the Dedicated IP option for your server. Newer services will be able to purchase a Dedicated IP following the steps in Option 1 while older services may need to follow the steps in Option 2.
