    The best customer service I ever received

    Hands down the best customer service I have ever received. The guy who helped me spent a ton of time explaining things and answering my questions. Never once showing any signs of rushing me or being annoyed at my lack of knowledge with the topic. They gained a customer for life if they keep this attitude and approach on running their business. I tip my hat to all of them.

    Thanks so much!!

    I did not know this company, but after speaking with them through discord I can only say good words. Their customer service is fast and efficient. They help you with everything and offer you a free trial so you can check their services for yourself. From 10 /10.

    Wouldn't use anyone else.

    Every single time I have asked for their support, they have answered within a couple of minutes (if that!) always friendly and helpful. They are able to access your server and resolve the problem without being intrusive on your privacy.

Running an ARK dedicated server is... complicated.

System Requirements

To run an ARK dedicated server, you'll want a system with at least 6GB of RAM and a quad-core processor. The operating system must be 64-bit and should be Linux (Ubuntu 16.04+), Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012-2022. Modded servers will require even more processing power.


You can install the server from your Steam library or use SteamCMD.

For Linux:

steamcmd +force_install_dir ./Ark_Dedicated_Server +login anonymous +app_update 376030 +quit

For Windows:

steamcmd.exe +force_install_dir C:\Ark_Dedicated_Server +login anonymous +app_update 376030 +quit

You'll need to forward UDP Port 27015, 7777, 7778 and TCP 27020

Seasonal Events can be toggled using their respective parameters in the .bat and .sh files.

Starting the server

You can launch the dedicated server from your steam library which will give you a terminal window to view.

You can also run the server by using command line in the server's directory after creating a .bat or .sh file to run it:
