This article refers to Minecraft Realms for Java Edition. If you need help with your subscription to Minecraft Realms for other platforms, please go here.
Creating or extending your Realm
Creating a Minecraft Realm requires that you have a Mojang account with a Minecraft profile. If you don't yet own Minecraft, you can purchase it from our store. If you have an old Minecraft account, and still log in with your username, you need to migrate to a Mojang account to use Realms.
You can purchase or extend a Minecraft Realm from your account page. Alternatively, your subscription settings can be found in-game by selecting your Realm, clicking Configure, then clicking Subscription.
Change subscription type
You can change between the two subscription types, recurring payment and one-time payment.
Recurring payment to one-time payment:
To manually extend a realm with a recurring payment already set up, you'll need to cancel the recurring payment and wait for it to expire before extending.
One-time payment to recurring payment:
Wait until your one-time payment has expired and then go to your account page and choose to extend your Realm with a recurring payment.
Canceling a Realms subscription
You can cancel or reactivate your recurring payment for Minecraft Realms at any time from your account overview. Find the Realm you're looking for listed under My Subscriptions. From here you can cancel or reactivate your Realm.
If you cancel a Realms subscription, you keep your remaining days and are not automatically charged again unless you reactivate the payment. You will be able to use your Realm until it expires; you do not lose any of the days that you have already paid for.
If you have any trouble with this process, please contact customer support and provide them with the transaction ID associated with your most recent Realms purchase.
