How to resubscribe?
Unfortunately, a cancelled sub can’t be re-subscribed (or cancel be un-done). You need to create a new sub. If it expired less than 14 days ago, we have your data and can move it to the new sub.
Botman, CSMM and Servertools
If you are building a large community server with Botman, CSMM, ServerTools and similar solutions please contact us at: email@example.com as it is not supported in our standard plans.
Revert subscription cancel
Subscription cancellation can’t be reverted. Neither Stripe nor Paypal allow it. In this case you need to create a new subscription. We may move your data to the new server.
Upgrade of a plan changes (increases) the quota and limits of your server. Note, it doesn’t wipe the old server’s data.
Can I import my world?
If you have at least M plan you can import a game save (map and progress) or just a map using the Admin Panel. You should go to “Manage” and then to “Files & Mods”.
Data import error
The most common error when uploading a map is “Incorrect backup archive – no save_game” . This means the format of your archive is not correct. It is missing the folder ‘save_game’. Please read the instruction carefully and compare the content of your zip file. There are links to sample archives. If you still have a problem, upload it here: https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AJmc4l1tLBtTYkY&id=DD769A432825265%21354033&cid=0DD769A432825265 and let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can take a look and resolve it.
Please make sure your server is in the closest region to your location. Make sure your hardware spec is correct for the game.
In order to remove/restore player profile and/or region files. please use Manage/Fixer Tool.

Performance issues may be caused by several different factors. 1) your location being distant from the server location (make sure you picked the right region), 2) temporary issue with server being overloaded (we monitor and try to prevent it as much as we can), 3) #2 + your CPU priority based on your plan is relatively low comparing to other server processes. If the issue persist please contact us at email@example.com providing all details like how many players, time, your server details etc.
“Validation error” may be caused by an account already registered with this email. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also try a different email.

We can resolve it, but e.g. providing you a direct link to Paypal payment (to use outside of our web page). Note, we can’t change/replace your payment method in a subscription. If the payment method used is no longer valid, you need to create another one (cancel old, and move data using “Move Server” button on the cancelled subscription).
Change game files
You can change game files that are not contained in the “data” directory (core game distribution content). This includes e.g. save, map etc. You can do it by uploading a zip archive (mods or map/save) and potentially modifying the needed files prior to compressing and uploading. Settings of server-settings.xml and server-admin.xml are managed using “Configure” panel (as UI fields) . Also, if you have a need to change some particular file (e.g. set property’s value) please contact us: email@example.com / Discord.
How this works
Server won’t start
Server doesn’t start. There can be several reasons. 1) Please check the console logs if there errors. It may be e.g. a corrupted file or a mod that is incompatible, 2) Try to Kill the process and Restart. If still doesn’t work, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you found errors: please attach them in your email.

We always provide enough CPU power to run the plan and mods that are supported on the plan. However, if you install your own mods that are CPU hungry or set server settings far beyond defaults causing heavy CPU consumption you might be throttled if there is no free computing power – in that case, lower plans will be throttled first.
In order to cancel your subscription (and hence recurring billing), log to the panel, find your server and click “Cancel” button.

restart to apply. You can also use console in the management section –
