Valheim Server Hosting FAQ
Valheim server hosting is a service that allows gamers to host their own dedicated Valheim server. With a hosted server, players can enjoy a private and persistent world in Valheim, where they have full control over the game settings, including the server rules, map configuration, and player capacity. This allows for a more customized and stable gaming experience, especially for groups of friends or Valheim communities who want to play together without interruptions or limitations imposed by public servers.
A key benefit of using a dedicated hosting service like GTXGaming for Valheim is the enhanced performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Our servers are optimized for gaming, ensuring low latency, high uptime, and smooth gameplay. Additionally, we provide tools and support to help you easily manage your server, including mod installations, backups, scheduled tasks like updates and restarts, and provide you with technical assistance.

Extreme Performance locations
We provide some extreme locations. This means you get a Ryzen 9 7950x CPU for your Valheim server which is the very best CPU available right now. If you want the best select an extreme location. Please note if you do select this option the CPU Clock Speed addon becomes obsolete. You do not need the CPU Clock Speed addon if you choose an extreme location.
Valheim server hosting can use a lot of memory, this can be because of the size of the world, or poorly optimized mods. In most cases, the lowest option we offer is more than sufficient, but for larger worlds, you may want to upgrade to a higher memory limit. Please note you can always upgrade your memory allocation on the fly so starting at the lowest is a good idea if you aren't sure. On our control panel, you can see CPU, Memory, and hard disk usage at any time and even look at the past 30 days.
CPU Clock Speed
We use Ryzen 9 5950x CPU's for all of our non extreme locations. We also have overclocked 5950x so with this addon, you can upgrade to an overclocked Ryzen 5950x which gives you better Valheim server hosting performance. However, we do recommend our extreme locations over this option as they use the brand new Ryzen 9 7950x and are going to give you a better overall Valheim experience.
You can upgrade your hard disk space if you feel you need more storage. Valheim game servers use very little disk space and it's not required to upgrade. But we have the option there because our users have asked for it.
For our Valheim server hosting we use a shared hosting environment, which means there could be six Valheim game servers on one machine.
