US realms are hosted for Blizzard in several datacenters across the United States. They are located in, from east to west:

  • New York, New York (moved from Boston, Massachusetts on 20 July 2010)[citation needed]
  • Chicago, Illinois (moved from Dallas, Texas in June 2010)[citation needed]
  • Phoenix, Arizona (moved from Seattle, Washington as of 17 August 2010)[citation needed]
  • Los Angeles, California

While new players often wish to choose a realm matching their own time zone, those realms may actually be located far away from them. For example, some servers in Los Angeles have realms on US Eastern Time, and some servers in New York have realms on US Pacific Time. Instead, players may first wish to pick a datacenter to which they have good internet connectivity.

To that end, this is a list of US realms organized by datacenter, battlegroup, time zone, and realm type. Also included are the IP addresses of each realm server, and the IP address of the last hop from the player's computer to the server when doing a traceroute.

Note: This content is primarily original content, from game data / user IP confirmation.
If your server's IP address is wrong, please feel free to update it.

Patch 3.3.3 Update: Blizzard made some changes to their servers. To find your server's IP address, see How to find IP addresses of realms.
