Servers, also known as Worlds, are individual, concurrently running instances of Final Fantasy XIV's setting, Eorzea, on which players reside. Multiple servers exist because the population of the game as a whole is too large to fit into a single world.

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. Players should consider this carefully; high population servers offer more opportunities to find help and social communities, but also suffer from higher latency (lag) and disconnection rates. Likewise, while low-population servers run smoother and more quickly, it may be difficult to find assistance, marketable items, or social groups - and the economy may be easily unbalanced.

Servers often share names with notorious entities in the Final Fantasy franchise. First-generation alpha/beta test servers were named for notorious villains, second-generation open-beta/release servers were named after memorable cities; and third-generation pre-FFXIV 2.0 servers share names with powerful weapons.

Servers for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn kept the server names at the end of 1.23 for Legacy servers. Fresh start servers took on the names of enemies and summons from Final Fantasy history.
