The best Minecraft servers

Servers are the gateway to expanding your horizons in Minecraft, and joining one is nice and simple. All you need to do is load up the game, hit multiplayer, then add a server. Name it whatever you want, then paste in any of the IP addresses we provide in the following slides...

Game of Thrones and its polarizing final season may be over, but you can still scratch that Westeros itch with this amazing server. Locations like King's Landing look all kinds of blocky beautiful.

1. WesterosCraft

IP Address: mc.westeroscraft.com

You can probably guess which car-jacking game inspired this popular server. Once you join, you can wield 35-different GTA-inspired weapons, and even use vehicles, like planes and tanks. 

2. Grand Theft Minecart

IP Address: mc-gtm.net

One of the best Pokémon/Minecraft mashups. Chill at the Pokémon centre, learn about crafting, or fight some poor animals in the wild, just like you would in Nintendo's monster-capturing games. 

3. Pokefind

IP Address: play.pokefind.co

This is one of the most popular Minecraft servers of all time, and with good reason. There are a huge number of features to enjoy, including a survival mode, factions and eggwars. It's like a Minecraft greatest hits compilation. 

4. Extreme Craft

IP Address: play.extremecraft.net

A mod that goes all out when it comes to authenticity. Explore Potter locales like a convincing recreation of Hogwarts, as you learn potion-making, play quidditch and duel other wizards. 

5. Potter World MC

IP Address: play.potterworldmc.com
