Mojang lets players rent Minecraft Realm servers through their interface. This is in addition to the many privately-hosted Minecraft servers.
What exactly are the Minecraft Realms?
Mojang refers to realm as “private, persistent, worlds, safely stored on the cloud”. They are Minecraft servers hosted on cloud servers, which allow multiplayer without the need for administrator knowledge.
There are no additional files or executables required to set up a Minecraft realm. Simply paying the subscription will keep it running persistently so players can enjoy it whenever they want.
