Free Trial & Java 11 Support

Not sure that a Minecraft Server is right for you? Now you don’t need to worry, as we have launched 24 hour free trial servers.

Currently, only Budget Minecraft Server Hosting supports this addition, however we plan to roll it out to Premium Server Hosting later next month, and to VPS/Web Hosting in early 2022.

Our Trial Budget Minecraft Hosting plan includes:

  • Instant Setup
  • Unmetered SSD Storage
  • Unlimited Slots
  • 1GB Memory
  • DDoS Protection
  • 1x MySQL Database
  • FTP File Access
  • Enterprise Hardware
  • 100% Uptime*
  • North America & Europe Location
  • Java 8, 11, 16 and 17 support

You can receive a free trial server via our website: https://slashy.host/minecraft

Java 17 Support

The launch of Minecraft 1.18 is just a few days away, and we have rolled out support for Java 17, which is a requirement for the new version. At this moment in time, we only support Custom JARs as an option for Java 17, however our automated systems will automatically deploy 1.18 on all nodes upon release.

In addition to Java 17, we have also released a stability bug patch with our internal deployment systems, resulting in daily backups being more stable, one-click modpacks working again and new JAR options being accessible within 30 minutes of deployment.

Minecraft Control Panel v3.7

Behind the scenes we have been working on brand new features for our Minecraft Control Panel!

New Sidebar Design

Our Sidebar has been completely re-designed from the ground up to follow our new branding and standardised content. Firstly, we removed the old Minecraft Block background image, and replaced it to the Slashy Hosting Purple. We then switched out Font Awesome 5 for Google Material Icons on the Sidebar to provide more accurate looking icons for each sidebar navigation item. Next, we replaced our existing font to a more modern one.

However, the magic doesn’t stop there! We have also taken onboard the countless suggestions about the Sidebar not being mobile responsive, and we can now officially say that our Sidebar looks amazing on every device!

Panel Customisation

A little over a year ago, we brought Dark mode to our Minecraft Control Panel. Whilst Dark Mode looks incredible, and gives our customers choice over their preferred look, it just wasn’t cutting it with us.

Today we are announcing our latest feature to our Minecraft Control Panel: Panel Themes will enable you to change the color of your panel to more than 16 million colours. Some of our favourite colors are above.

To switch your Panel Theme, simply head over to your Profile and select the Color Picker. Once done, save your profile and it should take effect!

Actions Page

Common questions account for over 80% of our support requests. Whilst our Knowledgebase covers almost all of these questions, the tutorial can sometimes be quite long/hard to follow. With our new Actions page we plan to cut down the work required by customers to execute these actions! Simply select your desired action, enter the confirmation word shown and click submit!

Currently we support the following functionality:

  • Factory Reset Minecraft Server
  • Delete all plugins
  • Reset Overworld
  • Reset The Nether
  • Reset The End
  • Take a MySQL Database Backup

If you have a suggestion of a feature that you would like to see, let us know via our Discord Server.

Additional Changes

  • We’ve added an announcement bar which will show on your Server View Page.
  • We’ve reworded the label “Name” to “Username/Email” on the login screen
  • We’ve patched many bugs with Dark Mode
  • All updates released today have been added to our Demo Panel
  • We’ve updated our Roadmap
