The Minecraft game offers a lot of freedom when it comes to choosing your favorite play mode. This is even better for those who like to play with other people, as the multiplayer mode allows access to several servers created by other gamers – each one of them being unique in their style, modes, objectives and minigames. There are endless possibilities and ways to have fun: you can, for example, recreate scenarios from your favorite movie or sights of your city in a fantastic way!



To help you find a space in the game that's perfect for your goals and fun, we've listed the 20 best Minecraft servers for PC in 2022! It is important to point out that maybe some of the IP's are not up to date.

But first, how to access these Minecraft servers?

If the Minecraft universe is new and you don't know how to access other players' servers on PC, save this tutorial:

  1. Open the Minecraft menu. Run the game and click on “Multiplayer”.
  2. A screen will open with several options. Click on “Direct Connection”.
  3. Paste the IP address of the server in the indicated field.
  4. Click on “Join Server”.

And it's done! See how fast it is? After joining the server, it will load. If you happen to get an error message, don't worry, as it probably has something to do with a technical server issue (temporary or otherwise).
