Our servers fully support BungeeCord. This guide will tell you how to install BungeeCord and give you some tips and tricks for running a BungeeCord server. If you would like to have our technicians set up a BungeeCord server for you, please check out our BungeeCord Installation Addon on our Adding Addons page.

Overview
BungeeCord is a software that acts as a proxy between the player's client and the connected Minecraft servers. The players see no difference between BungeeCord and a normal Minecraft server.

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 commands integrated into BungeeCord and/or plugin-operated portals to move themselves between different servers. This allows a single server to become a network of servers seamlessly working together.

Servers
It is recommended that you have at least 3 servers for your BungeeCord network. It is possible to run a BungeeCord network with only 2 servers, but that defeats the purpose. You need at least 3 servers. One of these servers will be used as the BungeeCord server, the other two servers are the Bukkit or Spigot servers BungeeCord will connect to.

JAR File
In order to have a BungeeCord server, you’ll need to have a BungeeCord JAR. Download the latest BungeeCord JAR here: BungeeCord.jar Please follow our instructions on how to install a custom JAR file here: https://help.ggservers.com/en-us/article/how-to-upload-and-use-a-custom-jar-file-1kzlntv/

RAM
It is generally recommended to have 512MB of RAM for every 500 players that will be connecting to your server. Please keep in mind that plugins may have a significant impact on the amount of RAM needed. If in doubt, feel free to open a ticket with our Sales department and we’ll advise you on the amount of RAM you need for your BungeeCord server.

Plugins
BungeeCord has it’s own API that is different from Bukkit’s or Spigot’s. Therefore, plugins that work with Bukkit/Spigot do not work with BungeeCord and vice versa. However, the manner in which they work is similar. If you want to add a plugin to your BungeeCord server, simply add the plugin to the plugins directory on your BungeeCord server. After restarting your BungeeCord server, you’ll see a new folder in the plugins directory with the plugin’s configuration inside.

Feel free to open a ticket in your client area if you need any assistance.
