How to Make Someone Admin On a Minecraft Server Hosting Provider

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of making someone an admin on a Minecraft server hosted by providers like Apex Hosting. This guide will illustrate the procedure using Apex Hosting but you can apply the method universally across various hosting platforms.

Step 1: Accessing the Server Console

After acquiring your server, access your hosting provider’s panel. In the case of Apex Hosting, navigate to the left-hand side and click on “Console”. This opens the command line interface.
