Have you ever seen this boring description of your server on the list and wondered how you could change it?

Boring Description

Don’t worry, you are not alone.

We need to do three main things to make this happen:

Edit your server file.
Add color (if you want).
Restart your server.

Editing Your Server File

The first thing you want to do is log in to to your server’s control panel at: https://mc.ggservers.com/

mc.ggservers.com

Click on “Servers”. Then click on the server you want to use.

Server List

Then click on “Files”:

Then "Config Files":

Config Files

Then click on “Server Settings”:

Server Settings

Scroll down to “Message of the Day”. Replace “A Minecraft Server” with whatever you want your server description to be. In the example below, I used “My Amazing Vanilla Server!”.

Color

If you want to add color to your message of the day, I recommend this website: https://mctools.org/motd-creator Use the information they give you for server.properties:

MOTD Color Code

Copy and paste that into the box next to “Message of the Day”:

New MOTD

Scroll down and hit “Save”.

Restarting Your Server

On the upper left-hand corner, you should see some links. Click on “Servers”. Click on the server you added the icon to. Then click “Restart”. Once your server finishes restarting, you should be done!

Final Product

Now your description is the way you want it.
