Game Server Options
Each game server order can be customized. When ordering a game server, you will have the following options:
The server type of your game server can be public or private. A public game server, is a server you can protect with or without a password. When you don't set a password on a public game server, every gamer can join the game server. When you set a password, only those who know the password can join the game server. A private game server however, is a game server that will be protected with a password by default. With a private game server, you don't have the option to remove the password. Private game servers are always cheaper than public game servers.
Slots are the amount of players that are able to join your game server. If for example you order a game server with 20 slots, this means up to 20 players can join your game server. The more slots you want, the more expensive a game server becomes.
When ordering a game server, you can choose where you want your game server to be hosted. We recommend to choose a game server location nearby as this will result in a lower ping. At PlayNow.gs you can rent game servers at the following locations:
- Nuremberg (Germany)
- Paris (France)
- Milan (Italy)
- Atlanta (USA)
- Chicago (USA)
- Kansas City (USA)
- Las Vegas (USA)

Once you order a game server, you can always switch to another location within the control panel. Switching the game server to another location is free, no costs involved.
When ordering a game server, you have two options: branded and non-branded. A branded gameserver has our company name "PlayNow.gs" attached to your gameserver name. A debranded gameserver doesn't hold our company name within the gameserver name. A debranded game server, costs an extra of € 2,00 ($2,20) per month.
The rental period differs for a monthly and a hourly game server. When ordering a monthly game server, you can select four different rental periods:
- 1 Month
- 3 Months (5% discount per month)
- 6 Months (10% discount per month)
- 12 Months (15% discount per month)
When ordering an hourly game server, you can rent a game server for a maximum period of 24 hours. This is ideal if you have a clan match, want to game for a couple of hours with your friends or just want to test our service before you order a monthly game server.
