ARK: Survival Evolved is a massive game, with a large portion of gameplay dedicated towards playing with others in online servers. Many servers are available to browse in-game, but when running your own server or joining a friend’s, you will need to join using the server’s IP address. With Apex Hosting, joining your ARK server with an IP is very easy, so we’ll show you how to do it!
With the IP in hand, you can now connect through your preferred games launcher!

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 ARK server is started on the panel as well.
