Minecraft Realms is an official subscription-based server See the multiplayer software in Minecraft. For the multiplayer experience, see Multiplayer. For the official Mojang paid-for servers, see Realms. For other unofficial Minecraft server software, see custom servers. Minecraft servers allow hosting service that allows players to create and manage their own private Minecraft servers. Hosted by Mojang Mojang AB Type Subsidiary Founder(s) Markus Persson, Jakob Porsér, and Carl Manneh Founded 2009 Headquarters Stockholm, Sweden Key people Jens Bergensten Products Minecraft, Scrolls, Cobalt, and Crown and Council Parent MicrosoftTechnology company Studios Links Site Mojang minecraft , Realms provides an easy and fast way to create servers and allows the owner to manage them from inside the game, without prior knowledge of the concepts for hosting on the Internet. Realms also allows players to choose from a list of minigames (updated by Mojang approximately every 2 weeks) to play temporarily, as well as several pre-made world templates, adventure maps, and experiences. Realms are not intended for large public servers, but for groups of friends or as a family server.


Realms is a service that can only be used by players that meet these requirements:



The subscription screen in-game, accessed through the Configuration menu.
Manage your Realms subscriptions here.

Realms is a subscription-based service. The link above will take you to your Mojang account page and will allow you to extend a current Realm or buy a new one ($7.99 per month for PC/Mac, and $3.99 per month for Pocket).

There are two types of subscriptions: Auto-renew and manual-renew. Auto-renew subscriptions automatically renew the Realms subscription every 30 days without you having to do a thing (this can be canceled). Manual-renew subscriptions need to be renewed manually and come in 30-day, 90-day, and 180-day packages for PC/Mac, as well as two-friend and ten-friend packages for Pocket.

All players are able to have a 30-day free Realms trial, providing they have not had a free trial on their Mojang account before.

Maps & templates

Within the Realms service, users can elect to temporarily replace their regular world with a Minigame or permanently replace their regular world with maps from the categories: World templates, Adventures, Experiences, or Inspiration. You also cannot use most of the commands or options while your realm is using a preset minigame. These maps are selected from community submissions by the Realms team. Certain maps may not be currently available on Realms due to being phased out or incompatible with the current update.


Minigames are temporary games designed to be played and reset continuously.

Although Realms is hosted by Mojang, and therefore safe and secure, it has some limitations. These limitations can be avoided by using the standard server software or a third-party hosting website.

  • Only whitelisted servers with up to ten players at once are allowed. Larger servers cannot be made.
  • Players can not be invited/uninvited or opped/deopped in-game - you must quit to the menu to do this.
  • All players are de-opped - even the host - while in a mini-game.
  • Minecraft must be running to configure your Realm.
