We are a subscription based service that enables parents to safely and securely host Minecraft playdates for their kids to play with friends.
Any devices that are officially supported for Minecraft. This includes most phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, consoles, and Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. For more information visit the official compatibility matrix on the Minecraft Website.
By default, we run your Minecraft server in the Central USA (Iowa). If this is not good for you, we can run it in many locations around the world. Click on the map to view the available options and then visit our support page and let us know where you'd like it. We'll move it right away.
You can kick off players that are misbehaving by visiting your server dashboard and un-inviting them. If they're logged in, they'll be kicked out with a "you have been un-invited" message, and they won't be able to connect until they're invited again.
Parents that want to enable their kids to play Minecraft together with friends, but don't want to become experts in server hosting.
