Bukkit or Vanilla
Deciding between a Bukkit server or a vanilla server can sometimes be confusing. To properly decide between the two, you have to understand the differences between having a Bukkit server, and having a Vanilla server.
Bukkit is a server modification, which allows the administrator of the server to utilize plugins created by the Bukkit community, to better enhance their server. You can use these plugins to make it easier to run the server, and to make your server a better experience for your players.
Vanilla is what most people call the ‘untouched’ Minecraft server, a vanilla sever is one that’s software has been downloaded directly from Minecraft.net. You may not utilize Bukkit plugins, if you decide to create a vanilla server, although it is still possible to use game mods.
Whether to go with the Bukkit server software, or vanilla, is totally up to you. If you want to make a quick private server, for you and a few friends to play on, vanilla will most likely be just fine. But if you’re planning on creating a public server that can get griefed, spammed, etc. A bukkit server might be what you’re looking for, either way, fun is guaranteed.
