Garry's Mod Server Hosting
Why Do You Need Garry's Mod Server Hosting?
Well, there are three ways you can host your own Gmod server.
- 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.

What Is Garry's Mod?
While Garry’s MOD is considered a full game, the base gamemode “sandbox” offers players an unprecedented level of freedom that enables players manipulate ragdolls or game props like furniture, containers and even dumpsters. Generally speaking, the game offers so much flexibility that it has no limitations such as specific objectives.
Players can select props or ragdolls from any installed Source Engine game and place into the sandbox; the basic idea behind the game is to move the props as dynamically as possible. The game also offers some important tools to facilitate limitless movement such as the Physics Gun which allows users to pick up ragdolls or props and also rotate and freeze them into places. Along with the Physics Gun is yet another important tool called the Tool Gun. The Tool Gun serves multipurpose such as constraining props, generating interactive buttons as well as facilitating the creation of controllable wheels and winches. For enhanced dynamism, the Tool Gun is capable of controlling facial expressions and pose of the ragdoll. Other extra attributes of the Tool Gun include its influence with add-ons created by the games community such that the tool gun can control and use these add-ons effectively.
Garry’s mod utilizes a modified version of the source engines called Havok Physics Engine, this allows players to build contraptions (within the laws of physics), thus allowing for a somewhat real life type simulations of experiments and structures.
As part of Garry’s reputation for offering an almost unprecedented gaming experience, this game lets users extend the gaming world as dynamically as they please by leveraging on the extensibility offered by the Source Engine via the spam menu. Users are able to spam models and maps imported at their own discretion. Furthermore, players can run their own scripts using the Lua Scripting, a feature added since Garry MOD’s version 9, in a bid to enhance users gaming experience. Thus, users are now able to create their own weapons, vehicles, entities, tools, NPCs and gamemodes. A feature that was not available in previous versions of Garry’s MOD. In multiplayer mode, game servers would attempt to send any new custom content to clients. Some popular modes are Trouble in Terrorist Town, Deathrun and Jailbreak.
Prior to 2005, Garry’s MOD was free from the year 2004 until November 27, 2005 when the last free version was released. A year after the release of the last free version of the game, Garry’s node became available on popular digital distribution service Steam and as of January 2016, the game had sold over 10 million copies. Following a Facepunch session with Garry MOD enthusiasts that saw users suggest possible improvement tips for the Garry’s MOD game, the creators decided to do a sequel which has been in progress since September 2015. At completion, the new Garry MOD is expected to have a new hook system for add-ons, sandboxed add-ons, and in-game workshop, browsing/spawning amongst others.
Players have been anticipating the release of the game which is slated for “September 16”
