This article is about the list of Servers, which are officially referred to as "Worlds". For the in-universe lore meaning of "world", see World.

Servers or Worlds are individual instances of Final Fantasy XIV. Servers are located in 4 places on Earth: North America, Europe, Japan, and Oceania. Each region is further divided into Data Centers. Each Data Center has multiple servers.

There are no regional limitations on servers. Anyone can create characters on any of the 4 regions. During Character Creation, players can select the world server of their choice to begin the game on. An indicator by each world in the world list indicates population density, represented by chocobo icons, as low, average, or high. For more information about Preferred Worlds, please refer to the Play Guide entry on population balancing.

Characters cannot be created on servers marked by the developers with "Congested" status, nor on servers where very many players are currently logged on.

To transfer a character from one server to another, player needs to use the World Transfer Service, which costs real world money. This fee is waived only if transferring from a Congested server to a Preferred one, or from any non-New server to a New server. You can check a World's current status on the official world status page. However, players can temporarily visit other servers with the World Visit System and Data Center Travel, which have some restrictions.

Note that Legacy servers are servers that existed before the A Realm Reborn (2.0) relaunch. Each server has an internal ID number that was retrieved from the API via datamining; it is unknown what these IDs are based upon.

There are separate servers for the Chinese and Korean regions, and those versions of the game are totally isolated, run by local subcontracted companies, and incompatible with the international version. If an international player finds themselves in a Chinese or Korean region, a VPN may be needed to connect to the international servers.

Data Center Selection

When logging in for the first time, you will be prompted to select a regional data center. Your choice of data center will determine the Worlds you may choose from after creating your character. Please note that characters are bound to the World on which they are created.

  • Your data center can be changed at any time via the Data Center Selection window at the title screen.

1. Select a data center.

If you have previously logged in with a character, the data center of the last character played will be denoted with a ★ symbol.

2. Review the list of data centers and their associated Worlds.

Worlds listed under the data center of the last character played will be highlighted.
