Survival Servers on Minecraft!

Check out these excellent Minecraft Survival Servers, also known as SMP Servers! These Minecraft servers are what an MC player would be most familiar with. They tend to be quite close to the original game's survival mode. You know, searching for Minecraft diamonds, crafting "nether portals", avoiding Herobrine, that sort of stuff. Try this list if you're looking for a fun survival Minecraft server network! Also, don't forget to check out a cool variation of this game mode on Vanilla Servers (... but keep an eye out for mobs like Creepers and Griefers if you do, no Grief prevention plugins on those!)

Best Minecraft Skyblock Servers!

No server list for Minecraft would be complete without the inclusion of these servers! Upon joining a Skyblock mode server, players get assigned tiny custom islands to play on and eventually expand. In many ways, those servers are similar to survival servers, but are, for the most part, much more challenging.

Frequent Questions:

What are Minecraft Servers?

Minecraft servers are multiplayer game server for Minecraft. They are all owned and operated by people in the giant Minecraft community. They contain huge online worlds where thousands of Minecraft players can compete or collaborate with friends and frenemies in various games. (Sources: Wikipedia, Minecraft)

What is a Minecraft Server List?

A Minecraft Server List can refer to one of two things; Either a website where players can find high quality servers for Minecraft, or the multiplayer menu inside the Minecraft game client, where a list of known servers is saved for later use. (Source: Fandom)

Does Minecraft have an official multiplayer server?

No, there is no such thing as an official Minecraft server. That being said, Mojang (Minecraft's parent company) has officially partnered with a few servers like Mineplex. Additionally, there are servers hosted by Mojang, called Minecraft Realms. Those, however, are limited in gameplay features; therefore, we wouldn't recommend them. Community-hosted servers usually offer more options, better performance, and cost less. (Sources: Minecraft, xbox)

How can I find a Minecraft Server IP?

Any gamer can can use our Minecraft Server Search feature to find a server IP for their specific device (whether that's a PC, a smartphone, or a console), or go through our server list.

What should I know before joining a server?

Every server has different rules you need to learn and respect, and a staff team to ensure you stick to them.

  1. Depending on the server, hacking is usually not allowed, nor is using a cracked client.
  2. Keep swear words under control. Be kind and considerate of others and don't spam the in-game chat.
  3. Respect the staff team and those offering their time to keep the server running smoothly.
  4. Running a server costs money. If you like it, consider donating to support it.

What games can I play on MC servers?

Pretty much anything your heart desires. There's hundreds of servers each suiting a different gameplay style, catering to all tastes. A Creative server will turn you into an artist, allowing you to craft huge constructions with ease, whereas a survival vanilla server will have you hunt and mine day and night in order to survive the zombies and skeletons!
