Super easy to get a server going
Any issues I had were quickly solved by the help of the small but extremely helpful support staff. I easily recommend using these guys if your game of choice is available as an option.

The server setup was super super easy
The server setup was super super easy. The immediate email asking how my new server is and following up on the purchase was inviting and great. The price point for a server is pretty great too. All in all A+ so far would get other game servers from.

These guys are honestly Awesome!
These guys are honestly Awesome! I have had servers for a few years now and these guys have been the first that I was skeptical about when I first started. A server that allows you a free trial? like where can you find that? So gave it a shot and wow the servers are great for rust. I heavily mod my servers and I threw all I had at the server and it was my game that crashed before the server did. This is the first server that has done that. Color me surprised because I am talking 50 mods plus 60 attack helicopters and me shooting fire rockets plus the helicopters attacking me. 10/10 would recommend.

Running a Rust dedicated server is... complicated.
To run a Rust dedicated server, you'll want a system with at least 4GB of RAM and a quad-core processor. The operating system should be Linux (Ubuntu 16.04+), Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit), or Windows Server 2012-2022. Modded servers will require even more processing power.
You can install the server from Facepunch's website or use SteamCMD. Linux requires a tool called linuxgsm.
wget -O linuxgsm.sh https://linuxgsm.sh && chmod +x linuxgsm.sh && bash linuxgsm.sh rustserver && ./rustserver install
steamcmd.exe +force_install_dir C:\path\to\rustserver\ +login anonymous +app_update 258550 +quit
You'll need to forward UDP Ports 28015 and 28016
Rust parameters can be editing in the .bat file on Windows and rustserver.cfg using linuxgsm.
Starting the server
If you are using Facepunch's quick install zip file from their website, you simply need to run the Run_DS.bat file.
You can also run the server by using command line in the server's directory on Windows, and using the specified command on Linux:
