Conan Exiles is a game primarily focused around online multiplayer, with most of the gameplay allowing you to build up your strength to dominate your enemies. While the game does have singleplayer, the game is meant to be experienced online with other players. This is where private servers come in, allowing players to host and control their own Conan Exile server. Whether the server is open for all other players or made for a select few, joining a Conan Exile server is very easy with Apex Hosting. Today, we will show you a few ways to join your Conan Exiles server and begin surviving with other players!

Failed to join requested game error:
Oftentimes, this error will appear if you try to join from the Connect with Steam button in the panel while the game is running. In order to bypass this error, ensure the game is fully closed before attempting to connect with Steam. Once the panel button is pressed, the game will automatically reboot and connect to your desired server.
Connection timed out! Could not find server error:
This is a generic error that can appear while trying to connect to a server. The most common cause is that the server is not online, so ensure the Conan Exiles has been started on the server panel, then allocate a few minutes for it to fully start. If this issue still occurs, especially while using the Direct Connect option, make sure that the IP and Port that is entered matches the one found on the server panel. Once this has been attempted, try to connect once again.
