What Is a Minecraft PC Server?

A Minecraft PC server is where players can play multiplayer Minecraft games hosted on another player's personal computer. Some servers require a password to join.

To run a Minecraft PC server, Mojang's free software must be downloaded and installed on a personal computer. Most operating systems are supported, including Linux, Windows and Mac. These servers normally have a set number of players allowed at any given time. Users can vote on maps and choose maps based on votes. Playing Minecraft in an online multiplayer environment enables teams to have dedicated servers to practice and play games against other Minecraft teams.
