Java Edition: What admin options are available for Realms?

This article is for Minecraft Realms for Java Edition. If you have Realms for another platform, please see How Do I Change My Realms Settings.

Realms owners have various admin options available for further customization. From the Realms menu, selecting Configure on your Realm will enable you to implement the following options: 


Have Multiple Worlds 

In your Realm, you have three different world slots and an additional slot that you can use for minigames. You can have three different worlds loaded in your Realm (for such as two survival worlds and one creative world). Each slot has its own world settings. However, only one slot can be active at a time. 


Adjust the Overall Settings for Your Realms Server:

Turn the Server On or Off 
Select the green slider next to the on setting or the gray slider next to the off setting to turn your Realm on or off. Turning the server off will back up your world, and then cause the server to go offline; this action will not affect world data or your subscription in any way. 



Invite Player 
Select the button to invite another player by entering their Minecraft username. The player will be added to your invited players list even if the invitation is not accepted. Invitations that are not accepted within seven days will expire and need to be sent again if you'd like to play with that person. 


Remove a Player 
Select the red X to remove a player from your list of invited players. 


Making a Player an "Operator" (OP) 
Select the grayed-out crown icon to promote a player to an operator. Operators can use slash commands, send private messages, and set the world spawn point. Operators can't invite or remove players, but you should still pick a player you trust to promote. Select the gold crown icon to make that player a normal user once again. 


Lets you set the name and description of your Realm. 


Select Subscription to see your Minecraft Realms subscription status or to extend your subscription. 


Adjust Settings for Individual Worlds: 

For game options for the active world, see Java Edition: How Do I Create My Realm. 


Enables you to see and switch between your backups as well as download the currently loaded backup. To learn how to download a world from Realms, head over to our Java Edition: How Do I Download My Realms World article. 


This option lets you generate a new world, load a premade world template, or upload your own world. Note that resetting your world with any of these options will delete your current world and all backups.
