    About BungeeCord

    For a long time, Minecraft server owners have had a dream that encompasses a free, easy, and reliable way to connect multiple Minecraft servers together. BungeeCord is the answer to said dream. Whether you are a small server wishing to string multiple game-modes together, or the owner of the ShotBow Network, BungeeCord is the ideal solution for you. With the help of BungeeCord, you will be able to unlock your community's full potential.

    What is it?
    BungeeCord is a useful software written in-house by the team at SpigotMC. It acts as a proxy between the player's client and the connected Minecraft servers. End-users of BungeeCord see no difference between it and a normal Minecraft server.

    How does it work?
    When the player connects to BungeeCord, it bridges the connection seamlessly to the Minecraft server and allows the player to connect. From there, the player can use integrated commands and/or plugin-operated portals to move themselves to different servers. This system allows for a single server to become a network of seamlessly integrating servers. The possibilities are endless!

    Written from the ground up using all new development practices and principles, this project aims to be the most efficient, reliable and feature-packed system around. It's already dominating similar systems that are costing end-users hundreds of dollars per month.

    BungeeCord comes with the ability to load plugins that are written against its expansive API. The BungeeCord system can not only seamlessly integrate with existing set-ups, but can also be limitlessly expanded to create anything. From global ban integration to your very own M.M.O. multi-verse, BungeeCord can surely handle it.
    • BungeeCord can spread out the load of a population spanning multiple servers, taking full advantage of multi-core CPUs.
    • BungeeCord can separate your server's activities (e.x. creative, survival, minigames,...)
  2. How many severs do I need to run Bungee? Is one server the "Bungee" and the two others are ex: survival, creative?
  3. You need at least two servers (I would recommend at least 3) One is bungee and all the other servers are spigot.
  4. I was wondering if all my servers have to be the same version, Since I run a spigot 1.8.8, forge 1.7.10 and a snapshot 1.9. I have a creative world and minigames running on the spigot server which I would like to move to another spigot server to ease up the load on the server.

    If you were to boot up those servers as standalone servers in your server list, and your client could access all of them, then sure.

    But make sure the user's clients can work with the version of the server you're hosting. If they are running 1.7.10 client and the hub is 1.7.10, then they switch to the 1.8.8 server, they may crash.
  6. That's what I was thinking, so I guess I will keep those two stand alone servers.
    • Agree Agree x 1
  7. Good to have best project for people
  8. is bungeecord risky
    • Funny Funny x 1
  9. not sure what you mean by risky, it allows you to connect multi spigot servers as one
  10. Can be. If you don't take proper security precautions, players can join your servers with "hack clients" and change their name to an OP players name and have access to practically anything inside the server (usually to destroy builds and just cause havoc).

    If you decide to use BungeeCord, I suggest setting up a proper firewall or using a java program like OnlyProxyJoin.

  11. Will it delete my plugins?
  12. why the necro?

    and wdym delete your plugins.. tf?
  13. I 100% agree I was until i found out about Bungee Cord
