I want to connect to a server of some sort in my plugin and check the value of something on the server for instance the version so whenever I update my plugin, people who are using it will receive a message every time they start the server letting them know an update is available, or better yet it could auto-update but that's for another topic. So how would I go about doing this? Do I need to buy a website or something? I don't want them to have to port forward or anything and I've seen plugins do this before. EDIT: Okay I figured out how to get it to check for updates from spigot, but still how would I go about connecting to a server or discord server or something to send statistics about errors. I would like to implement an option to let users send a crash report with the log if my plugin crashes the server.
