What is Minecraft Hosting?

Minecraft is an open-world sandbox game where players mine for ores, build shelters, and fight off mobs that approach during the night. Players are challenged to survive and explore the landscape of the game.

In Minecraft some of the things you can achieve include fighting the Ender dragon, along with going to the Nether. Along with Vanila Minecraft there is an array of mods and additional plugins you can add to enhance your experience with friends.

What is Spigot?

Spigot is an open-source implementation of the Minecraft server software. It is one of the most popular server software options for Minecraft, used by millions of players worldwide.

Spigot is built on the Bukkit API, which is another custom version of Minecraft, providing plugins to allow Minecraft server customization. Spigot added more features on top of Bukkit, such as more optimization for better performance, which includes better memory management and multithreading.

One of the main reason Minecraft server owners use Spigot is for it’s huge library of plugins, which are easily installable and customizable to add new in-game features, modify mechanics of your Minecraft server, and improve administration tools for your Minecraft server. Most of the plugins available for a Spigot Minecraft server are available on SpigotMC and BukkitDev.
