Hermitcraft, also written as HermitCraft, is a vanilla and modded whitelisted Minecraft Server started in April 2012 by Generikb. They have had a total of eight Minecraft worlds and they are currently in their seventh vanilla season. The server is currently administered by XisumaVoid, who was one of the earliest members of the server. The members of the Hermitcraft servers are Minecraft YouTubers who have been recognised by other Hermits and have been invited to join.

Hermitcraft has had many worlds on Vanilla and Modded, each with the same or different players. Many people have been invited to join the server over the years, and many people have left at their own discretion. Many of these players originated from the Mindcrack server, a server that inspired Hermitcraft. These Hermits include BdoubleO100 and Docm77. Others have originated from smaller servers such as Kingdomcraft, such as Iskall85 and GoodTimesWithScar. Each of these players collaborate on the server as they please. Hermitcraft also has a website Hermitcraft Website, there you can find all of the new videos and livestreams schedule from every hermit.

Some mini-games that are now played throughout Minecraft have been invented on the Hermitcraft server. The game 'TAG! YOU'RE IT!' was invented by Grian in Season 6, where one tries to get rid of a tag as fast as possible if they receive it. Grian also invented 'Hot Potato', where a dare is presented if one somehow manages to get the spud in their inventory. Other unique inventions that the members of the Hermitcraft server have made include a Santa that is themed around the Temple of Notch by FVDisco, built by MumboJumbo; and BoomBox, a game about TNT made by TangoTek in Season 3 and Season 6.

Hermitcraft sometimes hosts server-wide events and activities for all the members to partake in and the audience to enjoy. For example, in The Prank War of Season 6, two sides of the Hermitcraft server fought due to pranks that were made before the war. Hermitcraft have also invented their own gameshows. ZedaphPlays in particular invented 'Is that sheep looking at me?' where three contestants played games involving sheep. This was played in Season 5 and Season 6.

Hermitcraft is meant to be a safe environment for everyone. All of the hermits try to make sure none of their fans spread hatred. Cases like this often appear around large group events, such as the Prank War in Season 6 and the Mayor Election in Season 7. Everyone wants to make sure that Hermitcraft is as non-toxic as possible, for not only the hermits enjoyment but also the viewers.

Outside of the Server

Hermitcraft has also been involved in raising money for charities, such as Love Tropics by Grian, where he grew many trees on the Season 6 world to thank people for donating money. Grian has also done a collaborative livestream with Rendog for SOS Africa. They have also been involved in Make a Wish, a charitable organisation which gives unfortunate people privileges to fulfill their dream. Hermitcraft whitelisted Duke da dog, a person with a terminal illness that got to spend his time with his favourite Hermitcraft YouTubers.

Minecon, a worldwide event dedicated to Minecraft, have invited Hermitcraft to hold their own panel numerous times. They have been at Minecon 2016 event and the live events after that, with some of the Hermitcraft members on the panel. The topics were about how to run a small survival server and how to cope with server moderation. In the first Minecon they partook in, they had a live session with questions from the Hermitcraft Reddit.
