Rent your own prepaid Minecraft server on

On Minecraft servers there are already important and useful commands for control and administration of the server available without any server plugins. These commands are divided into two categories: commands which can be used by all players on the server and commands which only Operators (Operator or Admin) can use. All commands must be entered in the game chat or in the server console (in game default button "T").

Commands every player can use

Command Description
kill Causes 1000 damage for the user. This player dies and is resurrected at the spawn point. Useful if they do not know where they are.
me <action> Sends a emote-message (Example: "* Player ist cool").
tell <player> <message> Sends a private message to another player.
