Pterodactyl Panel

Pterodactyl Panel is the free, open-source, game agnostic, self-hosted control panel for users, networks, and game service providers. Pterodactyl supports games and servers such as Minecraft (including Spigot, Bungeecord, and Sponge), ARK: Evolution Evolved, CS:GO, Team Fortress 2, Insurgency, Teamspeak 3, Mumble, and many more. Control all of your games from one unified interface.


Why Pterodactyl

We boast a large array of features that put us on-par with some of the biggest names out there such as MCMyAdmin, Multicraft, and OpenGamePanel — all without leaving a dent in your wallet.


No MD5 here. We make use of the latest security standards such as BCrypt hashing and AES-256-CBC encryption.


Every aspect of Pterodactyl is fully themeable using the Blade templating engine and your own CSS.

Docker Based

Pterodactyl is the first game panel to make use of Docker to control servers and harden your network.

Free & Open Source

Pterodactyl is 100% free and licensed under a MIT license. All of our code is completely open source as well.

User Friendly

Furious clicking and yelling is for video games. Pterodactyl's interface is so simple that even Dogmeat could use it.


Whether you're a hosting company or some dudes playing video games, Pterodactyl has you covered.
