MinecraftOnline is a popular and long-standing minecraft survival multiplayer server. Find out what marks us out from the rest!
Massive, long-established world
MinecraftOnline has the oldest truly public map of any SMP server. Freedonia first went live the day SMP was released, and has not been restored or regenerated since, despite being live on this public server the whole time. It has grown to over 30km in diameter, and has been explored and built in by over 50,000 unique players.
Pure survival feel
No free kits, moderator-given freebies, item-spawning or other cheat commands. Everything you see in Freedonia has been built by hand, from legitimately harvested materials. We're sure you'll agree, this makes the epic structures here all the more impressive.
Strong moderator team
Our moderators are friendly, active and highly experienced. They are happy to help, and will look after your interests in Freedonia. At MinecraftOnline, being a moderator is not a privilege or a reward - it is an important responsibility.
Zero tolerance policy to griefing
Rather than artificially protect structures by locking them from editing with cuboid etc, we prefer to prevent griefing outright. MinecraftOnline's zero-tolerance policy is strictly enforced, and the moderators have the tools to both detect and easily repair grief. All bans are permanent.
This server has 8x Xeon CPUs, a monster 32GB RAM, both SSD and SATA drives, is colocated in a well-connected data centre that is ideally suited to UK and European players. It has exclusive use of a 10Gbit connection, both upstream and downstream. You won't find a less laggy server in the EU.
MinecraftOnline was the first SMP server to have a game-linked IRC channel. It has developed a wonderfully social, witty and welcoming community, which is active 24 hours a day. Many regulars connect to the IRC just to chat with those in-game, and occasionally players join the game just to chat on IRC! Find us in #minecraftonline at esper.net.
