Minecraft servers allow players to play online or via a local area network with other people. Official server software is only available on Java Edition. For Bedrock Edition, only unofficial server software is available.

Types of servers

See also: Tutorials/Playing on servers

Multiple archetypes of Minecraft servers exist, distinguished by the unique gameplay features, rules, and societal structures which they implement. No two servers are the same, and frequently the line between archetypes is blurred or indistinguishable. Many special types of servers rely on the use of map editors or the creative game mode to build custom maps and the CraftBukkit server software to provide additional features. Some of these servers are more PVP orientated, some involve aspects of Survival, Creative and Adventure mode, some have a built in economy, and some of them contain built in mini games.

Hosting a server

There are many tools provided for players to be able to manage and host a server. Note that servers have requirements in order to run efficiently and smoothly.

See Tutorials#Servers for tutorials on how to use these programs.

Managing and maintaining a server

See also: Tutorials/Server maintenance

Servers are generally managed by administrators and operators. The administrator generally takes responsibility of the server. It may be that the server is running from their machine, or that they simply have jurisdiction over a server. Operators generally assist the administrators to moderate a server, and to prevent unruly players and griefers. Both operators and administrators have access to various commands in order to ensure the smooth running of the server. On a default server, players are assigned as operator or administrator by using the /op command, or by editing the ops json file (ops.json) in the server directory, then restarting the server.

Local servers do not strictly require access to minecraft.net, and so can be played on an isolated local network with no internet connection. They use minecraft.net as a repository of player skins and also a database containing a list of accounts, preventing hackers and griefers from using false names while on such a server. This and other settings are modified by editing the server.properties text file.

The server saves the level in the "world" folder every 30 seconds if chunks have been modified, by default.
