Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a very popular game despite how long it has been around. Since it is a multiplayer shooter, servers are a large part of gameplay. While there are many official servers to choose from, there are also plenty of community-created servers. Whether you are looking to join an existing server or connect to your own, CS:GO allows you to join a server directly with an IP. With Apex Hosting, joining a CS:GO server is very easy, so today we will show you how to get started.
In order to join a CS:GO server, you must first generate a Steam game token.
Create a new game server account, enter 730 for the app ID, then choose a memo.
Customizationsarea, paste the Login Token into the Steam Account Token field.
With the IP in hand, you can now connect through Steam or CS:GO directly!
Enable Developer Console.
Yes, then exit the menu.
E.g. connect 22.214.171.124:25612
You should now connect to your server and be able to play!

Add a Serverin the bottom-right.
Add this address to favorites.
Community Server Browser.
Favoritestab, locate your server, then connect.
My server isn’t appearing in the in-game list:
Often, this occurs because the server was not properly added through Steam. Ensure that the server was added to your favorites. In addition, make sure that the session filter is changed to “Community Server Browser”., otherwise it will not appear.
The server is displaying as blank or offline through Steam:
The main cause for this is the IP not being properly entered. Make sure the IP entered through Steam matches the IP Address:Port section on the panel exactly. Otherwise, make sure the CS:GO server is started on the panel as well.
Stuck connecting to server:
Oftentimes, this means there is an issue with the entered IP. Ensure that the server is online and that you are using the IP from the server’s panel. If you are stuck at the screen and need to restart the game, consider trying Alt+F4 to force close CS:GO.
