i want it to be fun but easy so i chose vanilla but should i add plugins ? i don't think mods would be useful since it's just a small community type of server ! also im using Aternos !
Please leave any tips !

It really depends on what sort of gameplay you want, what your community is like, and what your resources are. Since you seem to be stuck on free platforms for now, I'd highly recommend keeping your plugins super light. Just a few tweak datapacks, something for anti-grief, and essentials or an essentials-like plugin/datapack should be fine.

Don't use Aternos, however. As someone else suggested, Minehut is a fine choice.

If you can find a free service that lets you do it, I'd also highly recommend using papermc instead of the default server or spigot. It's much more performant and will let you squeeze every last inch out of your server.

If this server really takes off, and you as a community can afford to do it, consider moving to Nitrous Networks for paid server hosting. This'll let you expand into deeper territory of plugins and datapacks. At that point, I'd recommend Gamemode 4 for some incredibly datapacks, tyruswoo's game changer, and MineTinker.

If you want to really mess around with configurations, if you can, check out this guide for Spigot optimization:

https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/guide-server-optimization%E2%9A%A1.283181/

If all this is overwhelming, just focus on the first two paragraphs for now! Everything else is just additional info if you decide to explore further. Server admin can be rewarding and educational!

Good luck, and have fun!

1, don't use aternos.

2, go for plugins don't do vanilla, because you might want a anti-cheat plugin or some other plugin that will make life easier (like essentials)

3, don't use aternos...
