Minecraft Realms 

A subscription to your own personal Minecraft server, where you can easily and safely play online with friends in shared worlds across devices.

Realms: Java Edition

Do you play Minecraft on one of these devices? Then you need Realms for Java Edition!

Realms: Java Edition supported on Windows, Linux and Mac

Realms for Bedrock Edition & Realms plus

Do you play Minecraft on any of these platforms? Can you access Minecraft Marketplace? Then Realms for Bedrock Edition and Realms Plus are the plans you’re looking for! 

Realms Plus supported on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, Android, iOS, Amazon Fire and Windows devices

Visit Minecraft Marketplace in-game to purchase a Realms for Bedrock Edition or Realms Plus subscription, or simply select Create on Realms when starting a new world.



A Personal Server

Play locally or in your Realm: a persistent online world, safely stored in the cloud.


Easy to set up & play 

Setup is as simple as creating a new world when playing Minecraft; just select Create on Realms. Visit our FAQ and tutorials for advanced tips and troubleshooting. 


Safety First

Only players who you invite can join your Realm. Manage permissions and restrict or ban unwelcome visitors at any time.


A Place to play with friends

You and up to 10 friends can play together at one time. Your friends never have to pay—they access your Realm and all the content on it for free!


The Best content

Enhance your game with curated user creations when you subscribe to Realms for Java Edition, enjoy free monthly Minecraft Marketplace content with Realms Plus, or choose Realms for Bedrock Edition if you want to purchase Marketplace items separately. 


Cross-play and Sync across Devices (Bedrock only)

Jump from your console to your phone or PC—any platform where you can install Bedrock Edition. 


Expand your experience

Upload three different worlds or Marketplace packs and easily switch between them using world slots. You are in control—you get to pick which world is active for you and your friends.
