The absolute worst thing that can happen to a server owner is their server being plagued with hackers. Horrible beings who install cheats onto their game locally, and are able to use them on servers, whether it be to get an unfair advantage, or just screw with other players. Luckily, there’s a perfect fix- the NoCheatPlus plugin! This plugin will constantly monitor all players’ speed, block breaking, and movement, and prevent them from doing anything that might result in unfair advantages being given. The best part is, it requires literally zero setup, apart from installation; it’s basically drag- and- drop! This guide will show you how to install the plugin, so let’s get started!
How to Install the Plugin
Here’s how to install NoCheatPlus on to your Apex Minecraft server!
- Navigate to your Apex Hosting panel
- Make sure you’re running Paper 1.12 or below, by selecting it in the JAR dropdown
- Click “Change Version” when it pops up
- On the next pop-up, specify whether you’d like a new world or not
- Then, restart your server
- Head over to “Plugin List” on the left
- Search for NoCheatPlus in the plugins list
- Install the latest version
- Finally, head back to your panel, and restart your server again
There are several commands you can use to configure the plugin. Here is what they are, and what they do:

This plugin is used to stop people from using client side hacks. It basically tracks various aspects of a player’s movement and such to make sure that they aren’t cheating. You can also set it to auto ban or kick players that are exploiting. NoCheatPlus is a standard anti cheat plugin and a server must have.
NoCheatPlus is your one- stop- shop to ensuring that your server is safe from filthy hackers and cheaters! It’s easy to install, and, even easier to configure! Now, your server is safe at last!
