Running A Successful Game Server

Here are a few key points when running your own game server

SERVER PERFORMANCE

Plan ahead! We recommended hosting a server that has the ability to scale with your community and uses top-notch equipment.

ESTABLISH RULES

A successful server will always have a set of rules for players to follow which should be enforced at all times.

SERVER EVENTS

There's nothing like an awesome server event to get everyone together in one location to have a fun evening.

ACTIVE STAFF

The most important feature a server can have. Admins should be non-playing characters that are on standby to help players who have issues and enforce server rules. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that admins should NOT be a playable character. This prevents players from claiming " Admin Abuse ".

COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

Community feedback is vital to any successful server. This could be in the form of voting for server mods, events or when the right time to do a server wipe should be.

SERVER SETTINGS

This can be a bit tricky as each player tends to like certain play styles. You should plan ahead and keep the settings the same once you have established a good player base. Do not change these settings without community consent.

SERVER LOCATION

Choose a location that benefits everyone. Many new server owners tend to host servers nearest to them when in reality players from all over the world may be part of your community. We recommend a central location that suits your playerbase if available.

SERVER RANKS

With over 307,638 members, we're one of the largest server ranking site in the world. We provide a free service which allows server owners to promote their game server and establish an active playerbase for FREE.

SERVER MODS

If you choose to use mods, we recommend limiting the amount you install and use ones that have an active mod creator. It's important to check the mods before you install them! Not all mods are compatible and there is nothing more annoying than a server crash due to an outdated mod or a mod related issue.
