How to Play Minecraft Multiplayer

There are many popular and populated Minecraft servers that you can pick from. Finding a Minecraft server that looks interesting to you is as simple as doing a search for Minecraft servers on Google!

Once you do find a server that you want to join, all that you have to do is find their IP address, which is almost always listed on their webpage.

Once you have a server’s IP address, simply open Minecraft, choose the multiplayer option, type in the IP address, click join, and, if everything went correctly, in seconds you will be on the Minecraft server that you chose.

If you want to play with another person and they are on the same connection as you, but are using another computer, than you do not need to type in an IP address to play with them. All that you have to do is, first, log onto the world you want to play on, hit your escape key, choose the LAN option, pick all of the rules that you want the world to have, and now the other person should be able to detect your world within their Minecraft. The person using the other computer now needs to click on your world, and you should now both be logged onto the same world!

  • In order to have the least server lag, the person who has the fastest computer and internet connection speed should be the one who hosts the server, so that the server has the most resources available to perform well.
