World Class Hosting

World Class Rust Support

Setting up a dedicated Rust server is not an easy thing to do on your own. It requires specialized hardware,software and bandwidth to provide the best environment for players. That’s why we offer a simple Rust server setup process, allowing you and your friends to play together online at any time. Apex Hosting has years of experience in game hosting and have perfected how to manage and operate these servers effectively. Making a Rust server requires deploying the dedicated server software on this hardware and allowing outside connections for all of your players. Our system does all of this and also keeps the server up to date automatically. Managing your server is easy with our web-based control panel, allowing you to control your settings, start new worlds, install mods and more! Playing Rust multiplayer without a dedicated server means you have to rely on someone setting up the game world every time you want to play. With a dedicated Rust server from Apex Hosting, anyone can join your world whenever they want.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best Rust server hosting?

The best Rust hosting company is one that will provide a persistent lag-free experience, unmatched uptime, and a 24/7 helpful support team all while being at a reasonable price. The host will also need to make sure that the server is automatically updated so players can always connect from the game client.

How much does Rust hosting cost?

When opening a Rust server, the price is calculated based on the amount of ram the customer would like allocated to the server. While many providers will charge based on performance, slots, or customer support, we do not limit any of this. When ordering a server and choosing how much ram is necessary, it is recommended to take into consideration the size, amount of players, and modifications you would like on the server.

How to make yourself admin on a rust server?

To add yourself or a player as an Administrator you will first want to note the players Steam64ID. You can find this by heading to the following website https://steamid.io/. Head to the Apex Game Panel, then navigate to the FTP File Access and login. Once there, locate the “server” folder, followed by the folder that has “rust_” and then random numbers. Once you enter this folder, continue into the “cfg” directory. On this page, select the “New File” button to the top left of the game panel. You are going to add the following line inside of this file. It can be repeated on new lines for multiple players: ownerid steam64idhere yourname.

How do you update a Rust Server?

To find your Rust Server IP address, you’ll first head to the Apex Panel. Once you are on this page, scroll down to the “IP Address:Port” field. You can then select the copy icon and paste it into Rust, or you can select the “Connect with Steam” button to automate this process.

How to find your rust server IP?

To add plugins to your Rust server you will need to first enable uMod support. You can do this by heading to the Apex Panel, and selecting the “Enable uMod Support” checkbox under the “Game Selector” selection. Once that is done, head to the “FTP File Access” tab to the left of the panel, open the “oxide” folder, and then the “plugins” folder. Once on this page, select the “Upload” button to the left of the panel and drag and drop in the plugins you would like to run.
