Garry’s Mod Server Hosting
Why Do you need Garr’ys Mod Server Hosting?
- You could host a server on your PC, but this means leaving your PC online 24 hours a day which can be costly on power. Also, most home connections do not have sufficient upstream connection to be able to host a decent server without ping or server lag issues.
- You could rent a dedicated server and host a Gmod server on it. This option has some great benefits, with a dedicated server, you will get all of the resources focused on one or several servers so you can guarantee the best possible performance. You get root access to the machine so you can easily update the server and run it with a Windows batch file. However, on the downside, there is the initial setup of the Gmod server which can take some time and expertise to get right, as well as updating it when an update comes out. If you’re new to hosting this can be extremely difficult and time-consuming and you will not have the support of our experts here at Zenith Servers.
- The best solution is to rent a server from Zenith Servers. Server rental will give you the best value for money. You get the control panel for free, and we host the server 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Rest assured that we do not overpopulate our machines and your server will run as smoothly as if you had a rented dedicated server. There are also added options of high CPU priority too so if your server is bustling with 100+ players you can add this to get things even smoother and with our 24-hour support you can be confident that you can get your Gmod server up and running in no time. Even for small or large communities, this is easily the best option for anyone planning to host a server.
How Long Does Setup Take?
Our servers are instantly setup. Immediately after ordering you will receive an email with your username and password for the control panel.
Once you are logged in your server may still be ‘Installing’ which will be shown by the server being in the state of “processing”. This simply means that your server is updating to the latest Gmod version via a Steam update. After a minute or two, click refresh on your browser and your server will be shown as ‘Running’ and will be ready for you to configure with your own server title and admin password via the configuration files if you had not done it on the buy page.
If you ever have any questions about your order open a support ticket.
