Ask any veteran Minecraft server host and they'll tell you how invaluable plugins can be to providing a great Minecraft multiplayer experience for their friends or communities. We covered in another blog post here the true difference between Mods and Plugins but for those unaware, Plugins take concepts already within the game, and flip them on their head. Alternatively, mods generally add something entirely from outside of the game.

Plugins are absolutely imperative to creating a healthy growing community online if you're a content creator and can add tons of quality-of-life additions for smaller communities too. For smaller communities, there are plugins that can add new forms of potions to Minecraft, new types of foods, or even alternative crafting methods to create a "Vegan" form of meat! For larger communities Plugins are the building blocks of a safe community online, preventing griefing, setting rules for players, and allowing players to claim areas to build and so much more.

Count on Access to Endless Plugins

Shockbyte has taken in feedback and understood the process of being a server host. We completely understand the struggles of the content creator and of the group of friends, looking to simply start a server of their own, add plugins, upload all the files, watch a handful of tutorials, lose patience, and get frustrated. We get it. We've heard you and we've spent two years of dedicated work to recreate the entire process in the most simple way possible: A single one-click installation for nearly every plugin, across every Minecraft plugin hub online.

That's a tall order isn't it? Shockbyte aims to deliver! We plan to provide the most streamlined access to every plugin-platform on the market for our server hosts to use with the single click of a button. All within the Plugin Selector itself are one-click installs and descriptions allowing you to browse and add at your leisure! Once you've already committed to paying for a Minecraft Server Host, that should be it! Things should be this easy!


An Entirely New Look with the Shockbyte Control Panel

One of the biggest changes to the Shockbyte panel is a massive overhaul to the panel UI as we've revamped the entire look for a cleaner, more obvious, simpler experience for users. With tons of brand new plugin filters, a sleek new look, and a completely redesigned Shockbyte Control Panel, starting your server is easier than ever and should be achievable by server hosts of every level of experience. We want even players who have never hosted a multiplayer server to feel comfortable.

Shockbyte is incredibly excited to bring players an experience where it is easier than ever to find everything you'll require to start your own server and customize it however you see fit. Plugins have always been a part of that for Minecraft server hosts so we made it among our highest priorities here at Shockbyte. Rather than spending hours online searching for your favorite plugins and trying to manually install them yourself; Spend seconds reading a description, hitting the install button, and get back in the game!
