Minecraft Plugin Tutorials and Video Guides
Minecraft plugins are jar files you can download and install on your server to provide a variety of different features. These range from minigames, anti cheats, claim plots, discord chat and much more.
You can either download them from the developers website or others listed in the tab below. Once downloaded you can upload them through your FTP files access or other programs such as FileZilla. Alternatively you can easily upload and remove them using our easy “plugin” section on multicraft.
Plugins are often free and give you great features for your server. From installing a factions server complete with claiming, faction descriptions, point systems and even banks.
Alternatively they can give you complete currency systems, anti cheat checkers and ways to stop griefing on your server. Unlike mods they don’t change items or mobs visually, rather they change the behaviours of objects and other entities in Minecraft to suit a specific style.
Take a look at our guides below to help you setup different plugins on your server.
