ChatControl Red™

Next Generation Chat Management Is Here


ChatControl Red helps you to format and filter your chat. It works on Minecraft 1.2.5 to 1.16 and supports BungeeCord and MySQL.


You install ChatControl Red on a Spigot server, and optionally install BungeeControl on BungeeCord.


Making your server unique is time consuming. It's frustrating how doing basic things is often impossible without installing 25+ plugins.


Get ChatControl Red™

ChatControl Red™ is currently available through MCMarket. Anyone can open a free account there and it works just like SpigotMC.

  • Full Discord and BungeeCord support.
  • Chat channels, party chat, global and ranged chat, linked chat.
  • Over 15 new commands including viewing in-game logs, selective spying, 3D rules regions, mail and nick system.
  • Exclusive features like the [X] button to remove chat messages and the [item] placeholder in chat.
  • 30 days money back guarantee.


Upgrade From ChatControl Pro™

ChatControl Red is a new product that’s separate from ChatControl Pro™. It has been built from the ground up, without reusing any code from Pro. That is why we’re offering this as a separate software.

However, for a limited time, we’re offering FREE upgrades for ChatControl Pro™ customers that meet either one of the following requirements:

1. People who contributed to ChatControl Pro™ or ChatControl Red™ by means of testing, providing localization files, or helping us code can get a free upgrade.

2. People who purchased ChatControl Pro™ on November 16th or later can get a free upgrade.

PS: For the list of the most important changes, please see this link.

Frequent Questions

Republishing ChatControl Red™ as a new premium plugin was not taken lightly. It was even free and open source during the beta, and right now I am offering it to you at a price of less than 3 coffees. 

Couple of reasons:

#1 — This is not an upgrade. 

Unlike ChatControl 7 or 8, this is a complete rewrite. It’s not like I spent a few days throwing a bunch of code over ChatControl 8 and now want to make a quick buck forcing people to buy. We’ve spent the last 10 months and literally threw everything away and rebuilt the software from the ground up, working with 50+ private testers (proof), spending weeks adding hundreds of improvements to the beta version (proof).

It has nothing to do with the old ChatControl, not a single line of code has been recycled. This is a brand new product that’s separate from the 2015 ChatControl Pro™. You’re not investing into an update, you’re investing into a transformation.

#2 — ChatControl Pro was maintained by someone else.

Most of purchase revenue starting December 2019 until early summer went to a third party maintainer.

#3 — Little praise and less than 7 donations (!) were raised since 2015 when I published the first paid version for $3.50.

ChatControl, for most of its time, is a single-man team and tons of people who purchased 5 years ago are still getting free help on our channels. By offering a paid upgrade I am able to to help people more effectively and support higher quality updates than what would otherwise be spent in corporate jobs.

#4 — Some people can get a free upgrade.

People who purchased ChatControl Pro™ starting November 16th, 2020, or people who’ve tested or contributed to its development, can obtain ChatControl Red™ free of charge.

Yes! I understand how frustrating it is to have a hardcoded advertisement right on your server. That’s why ChatControl Red™ makes it easy to change over 900 messages, including those shown on /chatcontrol or /channel commands. 

You can even change the layout and design completely to fit your server’s unique needs.

Since 2015 when the ChatControl Pro™ was available as premium, the entire core has been rewritten in Red to optimize performance and stability to its maximum potential.

It is written according to my latest knowledge and coding standards, based on thousands of customers questions, complaints and ideas.

We’ve added 100s of new features such as full-featured MySQL and BungeeCord support, deleting chat messages, [item] placeholder in chat and so much more that ChatControl Red™ is now officially the most advanced chat management plugin ever written!

No. It’s infuriating to have your server bricked because a critical plugin you’ve spent years on configuring has disappeared or broke on a new Minecraft release.

That’s why ChatControl Pro™ is now on maintenance. That means, I ensure it is stable and works fine on future Minecraft versions such as 1.17 or 1.18. I’ll also continue to fix major bugs when they are discovered. However, I won’t add any new features or make code changes unless those are critical bug fixes and won’t answer general support questions due to lack of time. ChatControl Pro will be made open source so everyone can review it and make changes as they like.

If you have doubts, please see the good old ChatControl Free from 2013 that’s been on maintenance for the last 7 years. It still works fine and receives updates as needed. 

If you don’t want to update, don’t. You can enjoy ChatControl Free or ChatControl Pro for years to come. I believe that’s totally fair. I’m not a large corporation forcing you to upgrade. However, I am a one-man team and would greatly appreciate the few cups of coffee you could invest into thousands of hours of work by upgrading. That’s it!

Absolutely, we’ve extended our refund policy from 14 to 30 days because we’re so confident in the quality and craftsmanship of ChatControl Red™.

If for any reason, you’re not satisfied with our product, you owe us absolutely nothing. Simply contact [email protected] within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll send you money back. Please note you won’t be able to repurchase again.
