SMP Servers in Minecraft are becoming increasingly popular. This is primarily thanks to many YouTubers, such as prominent Minecraft YouTuber Dream with his DreamSMP server.
For those unfamiliar with SMP servers in Minecraft, this article will cover all of the essential information, including precisely what Minecraft SMP servers are, how they can be joined, and the best ones to join.
SMP stands for Survival Multiplayer. SMP servers allow players to enjoy a Minecraft survival world together as a community. On SMP servers, players can explore the world, farm resources, and form towns together.
SMP servers have very few plugins and closely resemble Minecraft vanilla survival. SMP servers are entertaining to play on, with a tight-knit community feeling.
SMP Minecraft servers have become extremely popular in recent times. This is primarily because they have been featured by many popular YouTubers, such as Dream with his top-rated DreamSMP series.
Many of the most popular Minecraft SMP servers seen on YouTube, such as DreamSMP, are not accessible. This is for obvious reasons, such as to stop griefing and raiding.
There are, however, many popular public Minecraft SMP servers in which any Minecraft player can join. These servers can be joined just like any other Minecraft server.
Follow these simple steps to join any Minecraft SMP server:
This Minecraft SMP server can be found at the top of a dedicated list of SMP servers here. Many others can also be found if this one is not suitable.
Making a Minecraft SMP server is relatively simple and can be done with simple steps.
The first step to starting a Minecraft SMP server is to download the Minecraft server software from the Mojang website.
Also, make sure that the latest version of Java is installed, found here.
A simple file now needs to be created to run the Minecraft server. This can be done by following the steps below:
Players must agree to the Mojang EULA for the server to boot up. To do this, open the eula.txt file and change eula=false to eula=true
The server can now be easily launched via double-clicking the Run.bat file created in step 2.
If everything has been done correctly, a window should appear, left open, or the server will shut down.
To allow other players that are not on the same internet connection as you to join, port forwarding must be done.
Port forwarding is slightly complex and can depend on what router is being used. However, a good video guide on how to do it can be found below:
