Installing Minecraft mods on Hostinger's Game Panel

Updated over a week ago

If you're looking to expand your Minecraft experience beyond the standard (vanilla) version, you can easily enhance it with Forge.

Forge allows you to install mods and modpacks from third-party sources on your Minecraft Java Edition, such as CurseForge, 9minecraft, and others - just follow these steps:

Step 1 - Install Forge

To install Forge on Game Panel, right-click on your instance and select Manage:

Choose Configuration and open Server settings. Locate the Server Type, choose Forge from the drop-down list, select the Forge version (choose it depending on the mods or modpack you want to use), and press Download / Update:

Step 2 - Upload the Mod

Mods in Minecraft are installed by uploading the packages in .jar or .zip format into the mods folder. As you will have Forge already installed, open File Manager:

Create a mods folder by right-clicking on any file/folder and selecting Create Directory option:

Name it mods and press OK.

Next, download the mods/modpacks as well as all its required add-ons from the third-party source . You can refer to the mod’s source to check all the required add-ons, such as in this example from

Once the mod and add-on files are downloaded to your device, upload them to your Minecraft server by dragging and dropping them into the mods folder.

If there is any missing content, such as add-ons, the mod might not work

Step 3 - Install the Mod

All mods need to be installed while the server is not running. To ensure this, you can open the Status section and see if the application status is shown as stopped:

If you encounter any issues when installing or using a mod, we highly recommend referring to the mod's support forums or contacting the author.


  • Minecraft Bedrock Edition (Minecraft for Windows 10) does not support mods. Alternatively, you can enhance the game’s features with add-ons from the in-game Marketplace
