    How to put colored letters to your server name in Minecraft?

    In order to add colored letters to your server name in Minecraft, you have to keep in mind that you will need color codes, which you have to enter in certain sections within the game folders.

    This can be achieved with several methods, the first of which is inserting the code in the MOTD. If you want to do this you have to go to your server folder and edit the file called (for this step you can use any text editor).

    Once you're in it, you need to locate the line where it says MOTD (it's almost always the last one in the options list), then place the color code you want in front of each word, so that it acquires its color.


    I color codes are: u00A70 = black, u00A71 = dark blue, u00A72 = dark green, u00A73 = dark cyan, u00A74 = dark red, u00A75 = purple, u00A76 = orange, u00A77 = gray. u00A78 = dark green, u00A79 = lilac, u00A7a = light green, u00A7b = light cyan, u00A7c = light red, u00A7d = pink, u00A7e = yellow, u00A7f = white and voila, there is more.

    An example of how to put them would be like this: if the server is called Miraashace, then you have to put u00A73Mira u00A74as u00A75se u00A78hace. This will change the colors of the words and replace them with the appropriate ones.

    This trick works with any type of server, so if you are planning to play Minecraft online with a friend with or without Hamachi, or perhaps if you want to create and open a Minecraft or Minecraft PE server in Aternos, you can apply them and have colors without any problems.

    Changing the server name

    With the above you already know how to change the MOTD, but to finish answering the question How to put colored letters to the name of your server in Minecraft? You have to enter other codes, which will change the name you see on the big server.

    For this you will need the NBTExplorer tool (you can download it anywhere on the Internet), it will allow you to read the Minecraft files needed for this process. Once you have it, go to the folder «.Minecraft». 

    So on «Servers.dat», search for the attribute " Your name »And change it so that the name is left with the corresponding codes. In this case it is necessary to use the section mark (§) followed by a number, which will represent the color.

    These codes would be: §0 black, §1 dark blue, §2 dark green, §3 dark water, §4 dark red, §5 dark purple, among others (the list can be found on the wiki).

    To position them just put this symbol with the respective number in front of the word (as in the previous example) and voila, they will be colored.


    Place the section symbol

    In case you don't know how to place the section symbol, you can do it with a combination of keys which will depend on your operating system and the keyboard you use, if you come from Windows with an international keyboard, it would be Altgr + shift + S, yes it's a QWERTZ keyboard the combination is Shift + 3.

    If your Mac with keyboard US is OPT + 6, if extended OPT + 5, if CSA serious distribution: OPT + Shift + S. With a Linux operating system it would be Dial + S + O and Ubuntu Altgr + Shift + S O.
