World Class CS:GO Support

Managing and creating a dedicated CS:GO server can be a very difficult task. To do this it requires expensive hardware, specialized software, and unlimited bandwidth in order to provide the best possible experience for players. Seeing how difficult this setup is, we decided to take the difficult part out of your hands. We offer an affordable, simple CS:GO server setup allowing you to play with your friends easier than ever before. As one of the oldest and most experienced server hosts in the world, Apex Hosting has perfected how to effectively and efficiently manage these servers. Starting a CS:GO server is not as simple as installing some software. These servers require dedicated server software that allow outside connections for any player. Our system does all of this hard work for you while automatically updating the server to the latest version. We also make managing the server easier than ever with our web-based game panel. This allows you to install mods, change the map, control the server settings, and much more! Without a dedicated server, you will be relying on random servers in the server browser every time you wish to play. With a CS:GO Server from Apex Hosting, any player can join your server whenever they please.

About CS:GO

What is CS:GO?

CS:GO is a super-competitive first-person shooter where two teams of five players go head-to-head in various PvP gamemodes. Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists attempt to outplay each other by either eliminating the enemy team or completing the objective. There are also some other gamemodes and seasonal events like Deathmatch and Battle Royale, but they’re not representative of the main gamemode, which is known as Competitive or ’Comp.’ There are even community servers based around minigames like ’surfing’ and ’bunny hopping.’ CS:GO is a game that defined the FPS genre with its unique weapon models, animations and sound design for its guns. The Source Engine is also a great go-to for simple yet effective gunplay and shooting mechanics, with classics like Half Life, Garry’s Mod, and Portal all utilizing it. CS:GO is the epitome of low-latency competitive shooter gameplay.
