Realms in Minecraft: Everything players need to know
What is a Realm?
A Realm is a multiplayer world that anyone can join if they have a link to it.
Realms are located on the cloud, which means that the server owner does not have to create it themselves and instead pays a small monthly fee.
Before Realms, players would have to download the server files and spend hours going through the steps for the server to run. Realms can now just be purchased and the hosts can send the link to it to friends.
Since Realms are on the cloud, they will automatically save, allowing the host not to worry about losing their progress.
Minecraft Realms are available on the following platforms:
