A safe, simple way to enjoy Minecraft with friends
Playing Minecraft over the internet is a lot of fun, but it can be tricky to set up. To make things easier, we’re creating Minecraft Realms. It’s a paid service that lets users quickly set up an online world which can be accessed by an approved list of players.
Minecraft Realms worlds don’t require any technical knowledge to set up, and are available 24/7.
Realms is run by Mojang - creators of Minecraft.
Easy to use
Once you’re logged into Minecraft, Realms is just a few clicks away. It won’t require you to set up LAN networks, configure IPs, or mess about with ports. We’ve already done that for you. It’s the easiest way to host an infinitely big Minecraft world.
Only the host of a Realms server needs to pay a subscription fee. They will be available via the Mojang account page or through a link in-game, and initially come in 1, 3, or 6 month packages. Realms servers start at $13/month, but you get a discount if you choose a longer subscription.
Safe and secure
Only invited players can join a Realms server, and the host can add or remove players from their approved list with a few clicks. Worlds gets automatically backed up at regular intervals, and the host can restore their Realm to a previously saved state at any point.
Realms servers are available 24/7, even if the host isn’t logged in. Up to 20 players can be invited to a Realms server, and up to 10 of them can play at any one time. Inviting players and accepting invitations is a simple process that happens from within your Minecraft client.
