Do you want to prevent strange players from joining your server? Or only allow a few? This article will help you do this.






❓ What is the Whitelist ❓

The Whitelist is a list of players that are allowed to join your server. If the Whitelist is enabled, players that are not listed there will not be able to join, being automatically kicked.

NOTE: Whitelists are a great alternative to creating passwords for your server, which can only be done through Bukkit / Spigot plugins.
