Creating a Server

The articles in this section explain how to create and run a server powered by an implementation of the Sponge API.

If you’re a user who wishes to create a new server using an implementation of Sponge or migrate an existing server to an implementation of Sponge, this is for you. Plugin developers may also be interested in the articles contained within this section - test servers can be useful for plugin development.


We attempt to be implementation-agnostic when possible, meaning that instructions generally aren’t specific to one implementation of the Sponge API. Nonetheless, mistakes can happen.
