Factorio is a third-person factory building game that spans across an infinite 2D world. Mine for resources, design your infrastructure, and automate production to become an industrial powerhouse. With mass factories being constructed, the various fauna do not take kindly to your presence, requiring you to defend your structures against the locals using a variety of weapons. Using a dedicated Factorio server, team up with various players to create a mechanical empire of unprecedented scale. Whether you split up and build your own factories or collaborate all together, playing with friends or other players will allow you to continuously expand your factory kingdom.
Managing and creating a dedicated Factorio 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 Factorio 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 Factorio 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 Factorio Server from Apex Hosting, any player can join your server whenever they please.
