Minecraft servers act as the multiplayer version of the Minecraft game. Run by individuals within the vast Minecraft community, these servers host expansive virtual worlds. Here, thousands of Minecraft enthusiasts can either compete in games or team up with others, including both friends and rivals.
Minecraft does not provide any official servers. However, Mojang, the parent company of Minecraft, has established partnerships with a select few servers, such as Mineplex. Mojang also hosts servers known as Minecraft Realms.
