Minecraft is undeniably a classic game at this point. With millions of online players monthly, playing on Minecraft servers is a must-try for anyone who has previously enjoyed the game.

Joining a Minecraft server is extremely easy. This article provides a step-by-step guide on how to join any Minecraft server.

Joining a Minecraft server for PC/Java Edition


1.) Firstly, the Minecraft game must be launched. If it is not already installed, it can be downloaded from here. Below is an image of what the launcher should look like once installed:

7.) After clicking the "Add server" button, write a server address that would like to be played (the server name does not matter but can be entered anyway).

In this guide, the server "MC Prison" has been added. It's a popular and fun server with thousands of players daily. Alternatively, look for another Minecraft server here and copy its address (called an IP).

8.) After doing this, click the "Done" button, then double click the server on the list that was just added.

And that's it! That's how to join absolutely any Minecraft server. To change servers, simply follow this process again but use a different server address in step 7.
