What is Valheim?

Valheim is a Viking-themed survival game, where you can explore and survive on your own or with up to 9 friends on a dedicated Valheim server. Players can work together to build bases, create new gear, explore the world together and defeat some epic bosses. The game features numerous biomes with different difficulty levels, where players can farm for resources, craft new items, create new recipes and ultimately kill the boss in that area. While the single-player experience is fun, heading out with a group of friends to take on the world together is what makes Valheim special.

How to Start a Valheim Server

Setting up a dedicated Valheim 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 Valheim 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 Valheim 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 Valheim 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 Valheim server from Apex Hosting, anyone can join your world whenever they want.
