Step 1: Access The Control Panel

First things first, you will need to login to the SimpleGameHosting Control Panel, and then, from there, select the server that you want to change your Minecraft Bedrock seed on. 


Step 2: Preparing Your Server for A New Seed

Now, you will want to go to the "Console" tab. Then, click the "Stop" button on the Console page to stop your server. 


At this point, we recommend finding or getting the Minecraft seed you want to add to your Bedrock server. This will be used in future steps.

With your server stopped, we need to access the "File Manager". Just click the File Manager option in the menu bar. 


The next step of changing your seed is opening the "" file. This is in the File Manager, and you can just click on the file to open it and start editing it. 


Step 4: Changing The Level Seed

Once you have opened the file, find the "level-seed=" setting. 

Add your new server seed next to the "level-seed=" option.


After you have added your seed, make sure to click the "Save Content" button in the top right of the File Manager.


Step 5: Removing the "worlds" Folder

Once you have added your seed to the file, click on the "File Manager" tab again. 


From there, we need to delete the old world on your server. Just click the three dots next to the "worlds" folder and click "Delete". 


A confirmation box will appear. Click the "Delete" button in this pop-up confirmation, and your old world will be deleted allowing a new world to generate with your new seed. 


Step 6: Restarting The Server

The last step of adding a seed to your Minecraft Bedrock server is returning to the "Console" tab. 


Lastly, on the console tab, just click the "Start" button to start your server. It will generate a new world with your newly added seed!
