Minecraft Realms is an official subscription-based server hosting service that allows players to create and manage their own private Minecraft servers. Hosted by Mojang, 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 to play temporarily, as well as several pre-made world templates, adventure maps, experience maps, and inspiration maps, all made by Realms community map makers. Maps are updated by Mojang approximately every two weeks. Realms are not intended for large public servers, but for groups of friends or as a family server.[1]


Realms is a service that can be used only by players who meet these requirements:[2]

  • The player must have purchased the full version of Java Edition
  • The player must have a stable internet connection
  • The player must be age 13 years or older to join the Minecraft Realms community [verify]


The subscription screen in-game, accessed through the Configuration menu.

Manage the Realms subscriptions here.

Realms is a subscription-based service. The link above goes to the player's Minecraft account page, which offers options to extend a current subscription or buy a new one ($7.99 per month).[3]

There are two types of subscriptions: a reoccurring monthly charge that automatically renews the subscription every 30 days (this can be cancelled at any time), or a one time charge that comes in 30-day, 90-day, and 180-day packages and needs to be renewed manually.[3]

All players are able to have a 30-day free Realms trial, providing they have not already had a free trial on their account before.[3]

Using Realms[]


Users can choose to temporarily replace their world with a Minigame or permanently replace their world with maps from the following categories: World templates, Adventures, Experiences, or Inspiration. Most commands or options cannot be used while the realm is running a minigame. These maps are selected from community submissions by the Minecraft Content Team. Certain maps may not be available on Realms due to being phased out or incompatible with the current update. You cannot delete a map, but you can reset it.


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 standalone server software or a third-party hosting website.

  • Only whitelisted servers with up to ten players at once are allowed.
  • Players cannot be invited/uninvited or opped/deopped (given/removed operator status) in-game - they must quit to the menu to do this.
  • All players are de-opped - even the host - while in a mini-game.
  • The host can not be de-opped outside of mini-games.
  • Minecraft must be running to configure the player's Realm.
  • Realms cannot be used in old versions of the game or snapshots.[5]
  • Players get kicked for inactivity
  • Servers reset at midnight.[more information needed]
  • Users under the age of 16 need parental consent to play on Realms.
