Protect Minecraft servers, protect areas, and solve problems


WorldGuard is a toolbox of various functions, useful for multiplayer servers, that lets you:

  • Protect your server from a number of problems.
  • Block fire spread, lava spread, endermen, and more.
  • Flag areas as "no PVP" or "no TNT."
  • Assign ownership to areas so only selected individuals can build.
  • Use a number of useful commands.

WorldGuard is open source and is available under the GNU General Public License v3.


The project is written for Java 6 and our build process makes use of Maven. Detailed compilation information can be found on the wiki.

Dependencies are automatically handled by Maven.


We happily accept contributions, especially through pull requests on GitHub. Submissions must be licensed under the GNU General Public License v3.

Please read for important guidelines to follow.

We recommend following our mailing list, especially if you have some big ideas that you want to implement.
