The following is a list of some of the best public Minecraft servers out there. If you are looking for a good multiplayer server to play on with other people online, browse through this list to find one that interests you. Some have only a few active players, others have large communities supporting them. These servers also provide a variety of gametypes (PvP, survival, roleplaying, creative, etc.) to play with fellow Minecrafters.
Once you’ve found one that you’d like to try out, copy the server address (both the IP address and port), open up Minecraft, click multiplayer then add server and then paste it into the server address field. Give the server a name and then click done. You can now connect to that server from the multiplayer menu.

Empire Minecraft [24/7 Multi-Server]
Server Address: smp7.EmpireMinecraft.com
Server Country: United States
Welcome to Empire Minecraft! We are a 24×7 dedicated community with a professional and helpful staff. We have no white lists or boring application process. Every player can claim a large 60×60 residence in one of our Town worlds. Your residence is your protected area and is grief proof, however you will still need to adventure out into the wild to gather resources.
Our community consists of multiple servers. Each of the SMP servers has a Town world with over 1,500 residences. In many ways the servers are connected to each other, for example you can move your items and blocks between servers with the Empire exclusive Cross-server Vault. Empire Minecraft is a “legit” community, not “creative”. You have to explore and mine to find resources. We believe this is the most fun and adds more depth to the game.
