There are numerous kinds of Minecraft servers, usually distinguished by the level used in them or how players in them are supposed to behave. Many special types of servers rely on the use of map editors.
Types of gameplay:
servers usually have relatively regular maps, allowing players to build
or destroy whatever they want (though griefing is often against these
servers' rules.) No pvp and no destroying villages.
a server that allows players to make whatever they want, more focused
on building and griefing is not allowed. Unfortunately griefing is very
easy to be done on creative servers. (This often is dealt with by
protecting builds via systems like WorldGuard.)
server, usually with a normal map, where players are encouraged to take
on roles like Mayor, Blacksmith, Cook, and act as them in the game.
These servers often attempt to simulate settlement in some foreign land
or similar, and require the gathering of resources to build structures.
There are generally factions that can be made in these servers.
server where players are encouraged to fight versus other players (thus
the appellation PvP, meaning Player versus Player). Stealing is
sometimes allowed. Some servers do not have pvp.
type of server which is like PvP, but fully allows griefing. Also,
stealing is fully allowed. So Players can blow up people's homes and
steal their items and gear. Users are usually not allowed to report /
spam that they were griefed, as it may result in a ban or mute.
prison servers, there typically is no wilderness, and players must earn
money in order to advance in the prison. There are servers that allow
you to gain freedom as you advance in the ranks of the prison, in which
you can gain or earn your freedom or there are other servers from which
you can escape and be free. Sometimes PvP is allowed in this type of
Servers are like a clan or guild server, create your Faction or join
one and fight or raid other factions. Usually griefing is allowed, but
some servers do not allow it. The leader of the faction is able to
choose the name of the faction. The moderator of the faction is able to
claim land for the faction.
these servers have some sort of a challenge, such as surviving
underwater, living on a small island with few materials, or a block in
the sky (SkyBlock).
servers often use a plugin that allows you to have a type of currency.
You can usually buy and sell and make your own shops. Many servers also
allow you to buy land plots or even ranks in the server.
server that has a city-like region where you make a house on your own
protected land. Mostly these servers have in some area a free place
where anyone can build/take. The main point is usually to try to get
many natural resources so you can have the best house and possibly rank
up. iConomy is a typical plugin on these servers.
