Bedrock and Java Play Together

We support all devices that can play Minecraft — laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, and consoles!

Minecraft has two editions: Bedrock Edition and Java Edition. The device you want to play on determines which edition you can install.

Your servers may be setup to support either edition or both editions! We're the only Minecraft server host that makes it easy for everyone to play together with no configuration required!

Upload & Download Your Worlds

Do you or your kids have any worlds you created already that you want to play in? No problem, simply upload them, and click one button to install it into your server.

Do you want to take the world you've been playing on offline, for individual play or construction? Simply hit the world download button on the dashboard, and you're good to go. Installing the download so you can play it locally in single player mode is device specific, this wiki entry is a good starting point if you need help with that.
