All I want to do is post my Minecraft server on the main Minecraft Servers website but I don't really know what to do with the code they gave me. Please help?

    I'm not sure there is a "main Minecraft Servers website." You've been mislead or are simply misinterpreting the site. – dlras2 Jan 8 '14 at 21:39

The Message of the Day (motd) can be changed in the server.properties file. The line you're looking for should be at the bottom: motd=A Minecraft Server. Just change that to whatever you want your message to be, though there seems to be a limit of 59 characters according to the wiki. You can also change the formatting using some standard formatting codes.

Go to your Minecraft server folder then open the server.properties file. If you scroll down at the bottom you should see something saying motd=(your motd). Replace that with the code they gave you and run the server.

Near the bottom of server.properties, you will see motd=A Minecraft Server

Change A Minecraft Server to whatever you want.
