For your players
Ready to launch your game or just started developing one? Need some servers to alpha and beta test with your friends or community? We got you covered!
1. Add your game
Contact us and we’ll add your game into our game library. You decide if your dedicated game server will be shown to the public or will be available only for a closed testing group.
2. Set up your fleet
By using our innovative administration panel you can setup servers with different configurations. For example, try out which tick rate works best for your game.
3. Integrate into your game
Use our REST-API to collect available servers and to show them in your game. Add a “Get your own server” button into your game and give your players the option to purchase their own server, while you earn a revenue share.
You’re a game-developer, no sys-admin!
You signed up as a game developer, now your primary browser window is AWS, GCP or Azure Console? We want you to focus on your game, while we do what we can do best: hosting game servers all over the world with the best latency and ping available!
Automatic server updates
Provide us with a new version of your server and we’ll roll that out to the public immediately. We’ll take care of all those ugly details.
