The New World server list continues to grow as Amazon steps up to deal with the crazy demand the game has experienced over the period since launch. But that still hasn't prevented players from experiencing big queues, full-to-capacity worlds, and frequent downtime due to the server work Amazon is implementing.
But it's not all doom and gloom—queues aren't as bad as they were on launch, and it seems like Amazon is working to address the capacity issues. Still, if you're ready to start New World, it's hard to know what to make of the overcrowding issue. This New World server guide should help in that regard: it will show you how to find every server and world in the rapidly growing list, and where to check server status so you can be aware of current capacity and downtime.
Though Amazon promised that players would be able to move their characters between servers for free soon, they also recently implemented a cap meaning no new characters can be created on full servers. This feature is apparently temporary, and will stop servers from becoming overpopulated, but it will make any potential character move that Amazon allows a lot more limited.
New World server status: Which are active?
It's been a tumultous period since New World launched. Amazon has been adding new servers and worlds to increase capacity for the huge amount of players wanting to get started in Aeternum, and because of this, servers have frequently been experiencing queues and downtime for maintenance.
For current New World server status reports, Amazon has an official server status page, but if you want another source, newworldstatus.com seems to be providing accurate information, including queue sizes. RedzyTV has also compiled a spreadsheet showing which streamers and guilds are playing where—but note that the presence of streamers will mean bigger queues.

New World server list: Every current server
Since launch, Amazon has been building up New World server and world capacity to deal with the huge number of players that want to get into the game, to the point that, it's actually pretty hard to keep up with them. The official server list isn't updated live, so probably isn't your best bet for accurate server status, but it does list every current server for each region.
If you're looking for news regarding the addition of extra worlds for regions, the New World forum seems up to date with what's being added if you scroll down to the bottom, such as the recent addition of more worlds for EU players. So, if you're on the lookout for a new world in your region, this is a good bet.
New World server transfer: can you change server?
Due to overwhelming demand, Amazon has said that they will be allowing server transfers, but things have hit a bit of a roadblock since that initial promise. Amazon recently posted more details explaining why it's taking so long for the server transfers to be implemented. They also explained that region transfers will no longer be possible.
Instead, players will receive a token allowing them to transfer to another server world in their region, provided it isn't fully populated, though they will have to leave their company. There's still no exact indication as to when these transfers will take place.
