When playing on a server, there may come the time where you decide to add a password, requiring players to enter it correctly in order to join. This can occur for many reasons, such as wanting to make sure only approved players can join, temporarily limiting access to work on the server, and more. With Apex Hosting, changing your ARK server password is very easy, so today we will show you how to achieve it.
This method is a bit more complicated, but it supports adjustments through the server’s FTP area.

With that, your server should now have a password on it, requiring any player who joins to enter it. This is a great option to ensure an extra level of security on the server, so only trusted people can join, even if they have the server’s IP address. By simply choosing who to give the password to, you can change who joins at any time. In addition, if you set a password and keep it to yourself, this will allow only you to join, which can be very helpful when modifying the server and performing tests. Now that you know how to set an ARK password, you can begin your adventures!
