As one of the few successful early access games, devoid of bugs and full of critical praise, Valheim is a great adventure to start with up to nine other friends. Summon up your courage as you take your party on a quest through Norse-inspired lands, taking down the six bosses of each biome and building a shelter.
If you are looking to boot up Valheim for the first time with friends, there is no other option than establishing your own Valheim server. Help Odin by creating a server, and join millions of existing players who look to defeat his enemies.
Valheim is an open-world sandbox survival game that can be played single-player or by up to ten people. Create your own Viking-inspired character, and each world is procedurally generated, so no one will spawn in the same place, giving the game a unique feel during replays.
Despite the world being random, the goal stays the same. Travel through all of the biomes and defeat the six bosses.
While on your quest, you have to fend for yourself. Gather up allies, materials, and food. Hunt, mine, forage, and farm.
Valheim has sold over 10 million copies, an extreme rarity in early-access games, especially those that are PC-exclusive. Players love the game for its open feel and responsive, versatile gameplay.
The easiest way to set up your own Valheim server is to choose a dedicated hosting option, like a standard or premium package from ServerBlend. By renting dedicated hosting, you no longer have to deal with the burden of setting up and managing a server.
Unlike hosting directly from Valheim, there is mod support, which means you have more options to explore the game. Valheim isn’t in full release nor fully developed, so mods add a lot to the game.
Setting up a dedicated Valheim server is as simple as clicking your fingers, albeit not in the air, but on a keyboard a few times.
Visit our server rental packages and select the best option for you. Once confirmation has been received, your server will be up and running within two hours. Visit the server panel once you for further instructions on how to join and customize your server.
Valheim isn’t an extremely powerful game, but it needs a robust server. The faster the CPU and RAM, the more fluid the gameplay will be.
A server with the following specs will run a Valheim server effectively, although more powerful options are available for better gameplay:
When looking for a Valheim server hosting provider, ensure your server has these features for maximum customizability and protection.
Valheim servers can be played by up to ten players, including yourself, and run efficiently with players online worldwide.
Server hosting providers compete for your services, so prices are competitive. When comparing cost, also compare features and the extent of customer service offered.
You should expect the utmost payment security when renting a server. Look for hosts who accept secure payments through PayPal, Bitpay, and Stripe.
Setting up dedicated hardware space, your profile, and your panel and assigning DDoS protection takes time. Expect your server to be set up within hours unless you are renting from a host that does not offer 24/7 customer service.
When choosing ServerBlend, you can set up a server anytime with no slowdown.
If you have any problems with your server, they should be solved quickly.
Whether that is unusually high ping, connection issues, or improper mod installation, customer service experts should be on top of it soon after you reach out.
That also means they should handle issues before they happen.
In the unusual scenario where your server does crash, you want it always to have a backup. Dedicated servers with more than one slot allow you to save your progress as you play.
Backups also aid the gameplay experience, especially if someone crashes your server or someone’s “little brother” accidentally destroys the building you’ve been working on for hours.
Dedicated hosting has four main benefits over self-hosting or running a community server within the game.
While there are many options for renting a Valheim server, the most affordable option is from ServerBlend.
Using our price beat form, you can save if you find a competing hosting service with lower rates and similar benefits.
Most people think in-game hosting is the most economical option, which is technically accurate if you think of direct monetary value. However, in-game hosting doesn’t have backups and has minimal protection if strangers join and mess up your world.
The key thing to look for in a Valheim server hosting provider is how will that server provider benefit and help you as you develop your own Valheim world.
Look online for customer reviews to gauge how quick, effective, friendly, and proactive the customer service is when dealing with requests and to learn how they handle issues on their own.
DDoS protection is another priority, and mod support is a bonus. A simple and easy-to-use portal also is a plus.
Lastly, consider the hardware the server is run on. One of the main benefits of using a dedicated server hosting provider is that it is run on powerful hardware, so no one will crash, lose connection, or drop ping.

Choose a standard or premium option from ServerBlend, depending on your needs.
Premium hosting enables you to share less space with other clients on each node, meaning your server runs more effectively and gameplay is sharper. Alternatively, you can choose a standard package that is more affordable and still supports many places. We offer support for mods, DDoS protection, run for low ping, an easy-to-use UI, and a free transfer.
