How to disable Online Mode

The server setting known as "online mode" controls whether or not players must log in to Mojang's servers in order to connect to your Minecraft server. Players can access their profile skins through this authentication process, which confirms that they are logged in. Players won't be authenticated by Mojang's servers before connecting to your server if you disable online mode. In other words, your server wouldn't check that the user is who they claim to be, so anybody can log in using any username they wanted.

Note: Some features such as profile skins will be disabled since it will not use Mojang’s servers for user authentication.

How to disable Online Mode

Log into our control panel

Select the server on which you want to disable online-mode.

Make sure your server is not running. If it is running, stop the server.

Go to the File Manager tab, and open the “” file in the File Manager and look for the “online-mode” option(or add it, in case the option does not exist), then set the value to false and save the file.

Go to the Console Tab, start the server, and your server now should be running offline mode and allow cracked/offline players to join.
