SpigotMC, also known simply as Spigot, is a fork of the popular Bukkit server mod. Spigot is meant to increase performance and efficiency in the traditional Bukkit server mod, while still maintaining compatibility with plugins meant for Bukkit server mod. Many larger servers use Spigot, since larger servers tend to use more resources than your average server. Spigot is also ideal for home servers that lack the resources to buy hardware upgrades or pay for hosting. Home servers tend to lag a lot, typically because of internet restrictions or lack of resources. Spigot can help reduce the stress put on a computer by running a Minecraft server, and eliminate some lag in-game.
