About Starbound

What is Starbound?

After escaping your home’s destruction on a now-damaged spaceship, your only choice is to beam down to the planet below to survive when playing Starbound. Choose from a variety of playstyles by yourself or with friends to farm, explore dungeons, or build massive structures that tower over the world. Made entirely for multiplayer and modding, Starbound allows you to add new items, quests, dungeons, and much more whenever it is desired. Visit a procedurally generated universe on a Starbound dedicated server, allowing you to play through a story campaign and build your crew from the ground up. With so many choices and additions, the world of Starbound is near-limitless.

How to Start an Starbound Server

Managing and creating a dedicated Starbound 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 Starbound 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 an Starbound 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 an Starbound Server from Apex Hosting, any player can join your server whenever they please.
