Knowledgebase / Minecraft / Plugins

One of the most exciting parts about hosting a Minecraft Server is the ability to customize it past Vanilla Minecraft, and one of the best ways to do this is with plugins. Unlike mods, plugins do not need to be installed client-side and do not need any special software client-side to run. However, if you want to run plugins you will need to have your server as either Craftbukkit, Spigot, or Paper. Plugins can provide a multitude of extra commands to better manage the server and add in fun and useful mechanics, such as the ability to set who can access and build in certain areas, add prefixes and suffixes to names, create different ranks with access to different commands, add RPG elements, add virtual economies, and many more. There are thousands of plugins available on the Bukkit and Spigot repositories that you can choose from to spice up your server. It’s likely that if you have played on Minecraft Servers, you have had experience with some plugins. While plugins are great, they can sometimes be a bit difficult to use and install if you have not done so before. This is why we have a knowledgebase full of useful tutorials for a variety of popular plugins that will teach you how you can install the plugins, configure, and use them.
