As of March 2015, the IP addresses of Minecraft servers are available online on websites such as minecraftiplist.com and minecraft-server-list.com. Both websites provide a large selection of Minecraft servers with details and descriptions for each server.
Minecraftiplist.com shows many different Minecraft servers that are sortable by rank, uptime, players online, date modified and other filters. The homepage also includes a brief list of featured servers and random servers. Each server listing shows the IP address, server name and website, number of players, version, user votes and uptime. Users that click the listing can view the detailed description page of the server. The detailed description page includes statistics, the server profile and gameplay description.
Minecraft Server List lists and monitors over 280,000 Minecraft servers on its websites. Each Minecraft server is pinged regularly to ensure the server is online. If a server is offline, Minecraft Server List displays the server with a red number. Servers are removed from the list after more than two hours of downtime. The server listings contain the name, description and IP address of the server. Each listing also shows the number of players on the server, monthly and all-time user votes. The server profiles show the detailed gameplay description and server information.
