What Are The Oldest 4 Minecraft Servers That Are Still Operating? Minecraft has been around for a considerable time now and its popularity is growing. However since its launch on November 18, 2011, more and more servers were added, removed, and forgotten. Four servers have been part of Minecraft for the last 12 years it has been in existence, some rife with chaos and drama, while others are a serene paradise for friends. DONALD, Australia. June 8, 2022 /PRNewswire PRWebDONALD, Australia. June 8, 2022. Position 1 - Novylen Date of Creation Date of Creation: April 9th, 2010. Created by the company rbos Address: minecraft.novylen.net The Novylen Minecraft Server located in Canada has the official title of the oldest Minecraft Server ever built, on April 9th in 2010, four months ahead of the previous holder, MinecraftOnline. If you look back, you'll see that MinecraftOnline was launched on the same day that multiplayer was created. So how was Novylen developed prior to this? While the server was first introduced on the day after Minecraft Multiplayer's launch, the map was created much earlier, since the owner, rbos initially played the map on his singleplayer world back in the Minecraft InfDev period (specifically InfDev 20100413), four months prior to the launch of Minecraft Multiplayer. To top it off, the server has never ever been reset, which means the player could have hopped on 10 years ago, constructed something, and left forever and their work being the only evidence of their existence. Novylen is much less well-known than 2b2t. This means it hasn’t been subject to the same fate as many other exploits, griefs hackers, glitches, and other. A lot of the original designs from 2010 are still in use in the present. Position 2 - Nerd.nu Date of Creation: June 10 2009 * Created by: (unknown); Current Head Administrators defiex. fazaden. pez252. Address: nerd.nu Nerd.nu was launched for the first time on June 10, 2009, which was three days after Minecraft's unofficial Multiplayer release, Version 0.0.16a. Survival mode was not an option in Minecraft at the time of its launch. Nerd.nu has hosted many Minecraft creations as you can see in the image above. There have been numerous game modes added to the server over time. The most popular and longest-running one is the 'Creative' game mode which lets players fly and build whatever they like. While the server was indeed established in the beginning stages of the game, some claim that MinecraftOnline is older than it is, because the map was reset numerous times, meaning it's not the same world it was a few years ago. Nerd.nu's Creative gamemode is currently on it's 36th revision, which means that it was previously reset 35 times. - Because of the server resets mentioned earlier, it was decided Nerd.nu cannot be considered as the oldest server, since its world is relatively new. Position 3 - Minecraft Online Date of Creation: August 4th 2010 Created by SlowRiot Address: MinecraftOnline.com MinecraftOnline was launched on August 4, 2010, and has been running since then. It was launched within an hour of Notch releasing survival mode. Since this time, incredibly the server has remained online and has not been reset a single time. But why does it not look like the conglomerate of cobblestone that 2b2t is? It's amazing that the server has been staffed since its inception. MinecraftOnline also has rules that players must adhere to in contrast to 2b2t. However this doesn't mean every player must adhere to the rules. In the 12 years of MinecraftOnline's existence, over 43,000 players were banned. That's not the only surprising thing about it though, as the size of the world (remember, it's never been reset) has reached an astounding 26GB of storage space, which is just ONE world. Position 4 - 2b2t (2builders2tools). This page was created by georgebush420, Hausemaster Address: 2b2t.org Date of Creation: 1st December 2010 * 2b2t is among the most well-known Minecraft servers. Strongcraft Since its inception at the end of December 2010 2b2t has become known as an 'anarchy' server, where there is a severe lacking of rules with thousands of players with hacked clients, an absence of friendliness and a distinct and beaten-up terrain. The thing that the server is most famous for however, is it's map, which, since it's creation has never been reset. This means that many players have left in the past, leaving their mark on the server. 2b2t was a constant stream of players in its early days. Through the years, it fluctuated between 10-80. The change came in June of 2016 though, as popular YouTuber TheCampingRusher uploaded his first video. The server has been used by many other YouTubers, making 2b2t a very popular site. In 2022, the server constantly reaches over 1000 players in peak times, and it doesn't seem like this number will diminish anytime soon. These servers are not the only servers that date back to 2011, but many other servers do as well. Servers have not all been around for so long. Nowadays, as Minecraft is becoming more popular, it's not just about the past. Minecraft Server Lists have existed since this time and provide a list of the best Minecraft servers around. Server lists (or server databank) is a list that contains information about servers. This information typically includes information like the name of the server, IP address and ports.
