Uploading a custom world on to your Minecraft Server is easier than it sounds.

To ensure that the installation process is as smooth as possible; Please ensure that your world file was taken from the same version of Minecraft or newer. Having a newer world file on a server with an older JAR file can result in the world not loading and your server crashing.

Steps
Firstly, go to your FTP File Access page on your Minecraft hosting panel and open an FTP program such as FileZIlla on Windows or Cyberduck on MacOS.

Copy the FTP credentials to your FTP program and set the port to 21. Then click Connect.

Open either FIle Explorer (on Windows) or Finder (on MacOS) and drag your world folder into the base directory for your Minecraft Server.

Restart your server

There we have it! Your world folder has now been installed. However, if you want to access this world when you already have a primary world, these are the steps.

Ensure that you are running a server JAR capable of using plugins. These include: Spigot, CraftBukkit and PaperSpigot.

In your plugins/ folder upload the plugin Multiverse-Core. This can be found here: https://dev.bukkit.org/projects/multiverse-core

Restart your server. Please note that reloading your server is unlikely to work when installing Multiverse Core.

When in game run the following command: (Please replace world_folder_name with the name of your uploaded world folder.
-mv import (world_folder_name) NORMAL

Run the following command to teleport to your newly imported world:
-mvtp (world_folder_name)

And there we have it! Your new world should now work fine. If you run into any problems, feel free to open a Support Ticket.
