How to Set a Minecraft Server Icon
Minecraft is a popular sandbox game that allows players to create and explore virtual worlds. One of the ways to personalize your Minecraft server is by setting a server icon. This icon will appear next to your server name in the multiplayer server list, making it easily recognizable to players. If you’re unsure how to set a Minecraft server icon, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Prepare your server icon image
The server icon should be a square image with a resolution of 64×64 pixels. You can use any image editing software to create or resize an image to fit these specifications. Save the image as “server-icon.png”.
Step 2: Access your server files
Connect to your server’s file system using an FTP client or a file manager provided by your hosting provider. Locate the main server folder, which usually contains the “server.properties” file.
Step 3: Upload the server icon

Restart your Minecraft server to apply the changes. The server icon should now be visible in the multiplayer server list.
