Minecraft Realms Server Hosting is Now Live in North America


Have you always wanted your own Minecraft server, but didn’t know how to do it or worried that it wasn’t safe? Minecraft Realms, which Mojang announced recently for North America, solves that problem.

For 13 dollars a month Minecraft Realms allows you, or if you’re a younger player your parents, to set up a Minecraft server. Minecraft realms hosts the server and backs it up. Up to 10 players can play on a server at once, and up to 20 can be invited in total.

Mojang expects Realms to be a big moneymaker for the company, according to Gamespot:

“We have about 10 million paying PC gamers [now 14.7 million] and, soon, as many mobile gamers [more, actually, at 21 million], there’s definitely potential,”said Mojang CEO Carl Manneh. “And yes, if we look ahead, I do think [Realms will] be the biggest source of income in the future, and to bring in more money in total than the game itself.”

Minecraft Realms is currently only for the PC/MAC version of the game. It is also available in these countries:

Minecraft Realms is currently available in Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Great Britain, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, North America, Norway, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden, The Åland Islands, The Cayman Islands, The Faroe Islands, The Isle of Man, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom, and The United Arab Emirates.
