How do I install plugins onto my Minecraft server?

It is easy to install plugins onto your Minecraft Server. All that is needed is to download the plugin file from a site like CurseForge

First, you'll need to have CraftBukkit, Paper, or Spigot installed onto your server. If you don't, login to the Control Panel and go to the Updates tab an install one of them.

For example, we'll install the World Edit plugin to our server, as pictured below:

Navigate to the plugin's download page, as linked above and pictured below:

Save the file to your desktop.

Then, navigate to the File Manager within the control panel and go to the plugins folder.

You'll need to upload the .jar file for the plugin you want to install here.

Click Done and restart or start your server and it will be active!

Contact our support team if you have any troubles doing this- we're happy to help!
