How to Install Plugins on Your Server

Customization is one of the best things about Minecraft. There are lots of game modes and minigames to play. It’s just full of fun! How is this possible? Plugins! We’ll show you how to add plugins to your new server!

Plugins are an addition to your server which will make your experience greater.

The best thing about plugins is that they do not need to be set up on each player’s client like mods. Players will be able to join with the normal Minecraft client regardless of how many plugins your server is running.

With plugins you will be able to do a lot of new things on your server, like protecting areas, creating kits, using an economic system, and much more.

You have to be sure that your server is running on Spigot, Paper or CraftBukkit! Remember that single Vanilla can’t run plugins.

So check first you are running one of the three mentioned above, otherwise, you will have to change your server type. We recommend you do a backup before any server type changes!
