Why choose Realms?

A place for friends

The internet can be a wild place - but with Realms, only people you invite can join your world, making it the safest way to play with friends! You and up to 10 of your friends can play at the same time, but 200 can be given access. How friendly!

Play your way

What you do on your server is up to you! Create massive machines, colossal castles or cities in the sky; scavenge for resources to survive the night or dig deep for precious treasures to aid your adventuring. It’s your world, so you’re the boss.

Always online

Once your friends are on your approved list, any of them can access the world at any time of day, whether you’re online or not. Realms is the simplest way to play Minecraft with chums: just create a Realm and invite them along!

Good value

Only the owner of a Realm needs to pay - their friends get in for free! Some platforms offer pricing tiers and have better deals if you set up a recurring subscription, or buy several months at a time. Select your platform for more info!
