If you want to play with your friends on a private server, you can do so in two ways. Either you can get Minecraft Realms, which are servers run by us for you and your friends. Or, if you are more tech-inclined, you can try engineering your own server with our dedicated server software!

Set up your own Minecraft: Java Edition server at home. It’s a bit tricky, but you can do it!

Download Minecraft server software
