Survival servers are arguably the most popular type of Minecraft servers! Also often called SMP (Survival Multi Player), these servers stay true to many aspects of the original game's survival single player mode - you can loose health & die by receiving fall damage, being attacked (by players & mobs) or drowning. Just like in singleplayer, you need to make sure you protect yourself from the elements and hostile mobs, before darkness falls. Craft gear and build houses, explore the nether and kill the ender dragon! Here a list with some really top-notch servers to play on, big, small, pvp or no-pvp!
