What is a minecraft dedicated IP and do I need one ?

A minecraft dedicated IP means that you will be able to access minecraft on the standard port 25565 on your minecraft server (thus removing the need of putting in an additional port when connecting).
Example of IP Addressing for Minecraft

  • Dedicated Minecraft IP:
  • Shared Minecraft IP:


You generally do *NOT* need a dedicated IP for your minecraft server instance. However a domain (or subdomain) is advisable so it has a unique url.

A dedicated IP is not a domain name (a unique name for your minecraft server).

If you would like to order a domain name for your Minecraft server, visit our domain ordering page, and then contact support so we can set it up to work with your minecraft server instance.
Example of a Domain Name for Minecraft

  • Domain Name:
  • SubDomain:
