How to Join a Minecraft Server (PC / Java Edition)

We have a video tutorial on how to connect to your Minecraft server:

If you would like to join a Minecraft PC / Java Edition server, there are a few things to consider:


 

HOW TO IDENTIFY YOUR SERVER ADDRESS (IP & PORT)

To get started, you need to identify the address of the server you want to join. If you own a Shockbyte server, you can find your server address on your Multicraft server panel (https://mc.shockbyte.com). This will be labeled as "Server Address" as shown in the screenshot below.

In the example above, the server address is 192.168.2.1:12345. Breaking this down, the server IP is the set of numbers before the ":" symbol, and after this are the last five numbers which are the server port


 

HOW TO CONNECT TO YOUR SERVER (PC / JAVA)

Now that you have the server address, you're ready to join the server by following the steps below:

  1. On the Minecraft client, click the Multiplayer button.
