Minecraft's website from May 2, 2016 to November 26, 2019.
Minecraft's website prior to May 2, 2016.

Minecraft.net is the official website for Minecraft. It allows users to sign up, play and buy the game, provides links to related community sites (including the Minecraft Wiki) and is also where players can download the Minecraft launcher and server client.

On May 2, 2016, it was given a major redesign to include information about more products.[1]

On December 8, 2016, it was announced on Mojang's official blog that they would be moving all Minecraft related news to minecraft.net, and continue to update it there, rather than on mojang.com as they had done in the past.[2]

Developer URLs[edit]

Developer calls and URLs found on the Minecraft Forum, game files, API, Authentication, and Legacy Authentication:

http://assets.minecraft.net/<VERSION>/<FILENAME>

Used to download resources for the client and for the server up to version 1.5.2.

http://s3.amazonaws.com/Minecraft.Download/versions/<VERSION>/<FILENAME>

Used to download resources for the client past version 1.6.2.


http://session.minecraft.net/game/getversion.jsp?user=<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>&version=12

http://login.minecraft.net/?user=<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>&version=12

The Minecraft launcher uses this to authenticate logins. If the username and password are valid for a premium account, returns "<POSIX time>:<hash of password>:<username with correct capitalization>:<newly generated session id>:". If username and password are invalid, returns "Bad login". If the username and password are correct, but the account isn't premium, returns "User not premium". If the given version number is less than 12, returns "Old version". The username is not case-sensitive.

http://session.minecraft.net/game/joinserver.jsp?user=<USERNAME>&sessionId=<SESSION ID>&serverId=<SERVER ID>

This link seems to be called when a server with online-mode=true checks if it should allow a player to join the game. The session ID is generated by the launcher when logging in (users can also generate them with the "getversion.jsp" link above). This URL will return "OK" if the given session ID is the last one to have been generated for that username; otherwise it will return a "Bad login" error.

https://sessionserver.mojang.com/blockedservers

This link is called when a user attempts to connect to a server that is in violation of Mojang's End User License Agreement, which will return the following error message on the client: java.net.SocketException: Network is unreachable
