Upload a custom world to your Minecraft server

Uploading a custom world to your Minecraft server is a simple process.

Head to our game panel at and select your server, then press the Stop button to shut it down.

Select the "Files" button in the sidebar to navigate to the File Manager, and then delete the folder called world (as well as world_nether and world_the_end if applicable), assuming that's the world you want to replace.

If your world is currently a folder and not a .zip file, compress it to ensure it's correctly uploaded to the panel and to speed up the upload process.

Upload the compressed world to the File Manager, then decompress it and rename the created folder to world.

Start your server again, and it should load in as the main world!

Some great places to download custom Minecraft maps are, CurseForge and Planet Minecraft.
