Out of the box, all of our Minecraft Java hosting runs on Java 8 as that's the most popular and compatible version for Minecraft servers, however recently we've noticed new modpacks and server plugins require Java 11.
Many customers may not know, but our Minecraft hosting supports switching to different Java versions. If you'd like the Java version of your server changed, just open a ticket and we'll gladly adjust the version. As of the time of writing, we support Java 8, 9 and 11.
You may be wondering why to bother upgrading the Java version if Java 8 works just fine. Newer versions of Java improve performance, provide more APIs and lets developers do more things.
