What is a Reverse Proxy?

A reverse proxy is a server that acts as an intermediary between a client and a target server. It forwards client requests to the target server and returns responses to the client. This setup provides several benefits, including load balancing, enhanced security, and performance optimization.

Why Use a Reverse Proxy for Minecraft?

Using a reverse proxy for your Minecraft server can offer several advantages:

  • Traffic Management: The reverse proxy can handle and route traffic efficiently.
  • Security: The reverse proxy can add an extra layer of protection by filtering requests.
  • Performance: Load balancing can improve your server's performance and responsiveness.

Setting Up a Reverse Proxy on NodeByte

Follow these steps to set up a reverse proxy for your Minecraft server using the NodeByte game panel:

  1. Access the Proxy Tab: Log in to your NodeByte account and navigate to your game panel at panel.nodebyte.host. Under the General section, find and click on the Proxy tab.
  2. Enable Reverse Proxy: In the Proxy tab, enable the reverse proxy option.
  3. Configure Proxy Settings: Adjust proxy settings according to your needs, such as the target server's address and port, and any other options available.
  4. Save Changes: Once you’ve configured the proxy, click Save to apply the changes.
  5. Test the Proxy: After saving, test your Minecraft server to ensure the reverse proxy is working as expected.

Additional Tips for Cloudflare Users

If you use Cloudflare for protection, you can set up Minecraft-specific SRV records to connect via your domain name. For more details, refer to Cloudflare's documentation on Minecraft setup.

Troubleshooting

If you encounter issues with your reverse proxy setup, consider the following:

  • Check your proxy settings: Verify that the target server address and port are correct.
  • Firewall and port issues: Ensure your firewall is not blocking the reverse proxy traffic.
  • Cloudflare compatibility: If you use Cloudflare, ensure the reverse proxy and Cloudflare settings are compatible.

You've now learned how to set up a reverse proxy for your Minecraft server using NodeByte's game panel. This setup can help improve your server's performance, security, and scalability. If you have further questions or require additional assistance, please contact our support team.
