📺 Connecting via XBOX and Nintendo Switch, properly

You're not able to connect to NukkitX or PocketMine-MP servers. For that, you must use the Bedrock Dedicated.
If you've just purchased, please make sure to open a ticket so we can assist you in moving your server to a Bedrock Dedicated node.

Minecraft Bedrock from XBOX and Nintendo Switch doesn't allow direct connections to a server IP such as Windows 10 Edition and Pocket Edition (MCPE) can offer.
Additional DNS Setup must be done.

You can find a tutorial on how to setup that here:

It's understandable why some might not want to use a random DNS server. Keep in mind, that a DNS server does not have any access to the information you send to a server/website. It only knows the domains you are currently trying to use so it can respond back with an IP to connect to, but nothing that has to do with the information you send to an actual server.

Feel free to open a ticket in your Client Area if you need any further assistance.
