How to get unbanned from a Minecraft server?

Minecraft’s moderation staff screens for violations of its community standards. A ban is issued from a server or Realm if a player is found responsible for any negative behaviour that doesn’t follow the guidelines.

When an account is banned, its IP address gets blocked from the concerned server, which results in a loss of access. Bans in Minecraft might remain temporary or turn permanent depending on the severity of a violation.

Players in return can issue an appeal to unban themselves on a server’s forum. If facing a permanent ban, users can change their IP address with a VPN and then access the game.

This article will guide you through two workarounds to unban your account from a Minecraft server.
