Probably the most popular mod for Minecraft, Bukkit provides a powerful and easy to use extender to add plugins as and when you want them. Its easy to install and you can buy server hosting with Bukkit setup readily so you don’t have to download and install it.
The downside is that the third party plugins are created by random developers which could contain rogue code that doesn’t work with latest versions of Minecraft and hasn’t been tested rigorously by the official developers.
You can find a list of the plugins available for Bukkit on the official Bukkit website so you can sort through them and decide as a group what to install on your own Bukkit Server Hosting.
This game is a mod for Minecraft and extends the functionality through added blocks and gameplay modes.

Lag has always been a major issue for me when using Bukkit as a lot of the plugins tend to put a strain on my own hosting which doesn't go down well with my mates. If you want to start using Bukkit I would suggest that you only download and run the plugins that you are going to use in order to keep your server from overloading. There are a lot of odd and great ones to download. It's best to go on reviews and rating in order to avoid the rubbish ones!
Bukkti server hosting is a great choice if you actually want to build a community larger then 5-6 players. I had attempted to do this running my server off my PC and I failed miserably. As soon as I manged to get around 10 players on the server it started to lag hard! It really was impossible to keep growing my community as I wasn't able to host for them without causing issues. After a few donations from my friends I decided it was time to splash out and get some Bukkit server hosting as my community was struggling to expand without it. A month after buying it I saw that my community was growing more and more by the week! People were happy with how well the server was running! server hosting is something that is really worth investing into if you want to build a strong community and expand!
There are so many great plugins for Bukkit the list is pretty much endless! They have well over 15000 community plugins that will give you a chance to add pretty much anything to your Minecraft server. The only problem I had was hosting all of the plugins at once as my computer couldn't handle that as well as hosting for 10 people so we had to switch over to Bukkit server hosting instead. Thanks to the server hosting we now don't have any lag and my computer doesn't sound like its about to kill over anymore.
