Hi there,

Once your Minecraft server is up and running you need to do the following:

  1. First copy the public ipv4 address from your newly created droplet from the DigitalOcean control panel (
  2. Then start the Minecraft application, click “Play” and then “Multiplayer”
  3. Then click “Add Server”
  4. Then paste the IP address of the Droplet into the Server Address field and then “Done” to save
  5. Finally, click “Join Server” and enjoy!

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
