Host your Gmod games on superior hardware
One of the worst things you can experience with a game like Garry’s Mod is slow and lagging performance because of hardware issues. We know this from experience because we’re gamers ourselves! Our systems and hardware are all game-specific. This means we create the best configuration for the game you want to play so that it runs on optimum settings and prime calibration.
One of the ways we ensure high-performance is by limiting the total number of customers on a single machine. This allows the server you’re on to get better access to RAM, processor cores, etc. In short, it doesn’t overload your server so that it starts giving you problems when you’re enjoying your game the most! Some of our hardware features for GMod includes the latest processors, error-correcting RAM, and an Operating System that is ideally configured for GMod gaming. You’ll find that our hardware does not rely merely on higher thread-count or RAM size. We focus equally on the right configuration for the game of your choice. This guarantees you a lag-less and hassle-free GMod experience!

Our hardware centers are located in strategic and calculated locations all over the world. No matter what site you access your server from, you will be linked to your nearest Fatality Servers center. The good news for gamers from Tier 1 countries is that you’ll find even better reach and coverage because of your location.
Our vision is to reach out to gamers and enthusiasts from all over the world. This is why we are continually expanding to a global network. We believe that a person’s location or site should not be an obstacle in his/her access to reliable servers like ours.

As you may already know, gaming platforms and servers are among the favorite targets for DDOS attacks online. This is a threat that we consider seriously, and we don’t cut corners when it comes to security. All measures are put into place so that our hardware and servers remain protected against these attacks. We set up a combination of both automated as well as manual exercises that make sure that threats are quickly avoided or mitigated. Centralized monitoring systems can detect situations that have the potential for attacks. Manual detection drives can easily indicate what dangers the systems may encounter.
These are just a handful of the additional advantages you get when your partner up with Fatality Servers. We give extra effort in providing high-performance servers and take extra precaution to prevent malicious attacks and threat agents. Whether it’s with GMod or any of our other games, we want to make sure that your gaming is a wholesome, enjoyable, and hassle-free experience!

How To Install Add-Ons to Your Garry's Mod Server
Garry’s Mod, also known as GMod, relies a lot of tools and addons. Installing an Addon can be confusing; especially to new players so here is a short tutorial on how to add an Add-on into the Gmod Server.
Download and install an Addon:
First, we will have to download the Addon for the Garry’s Mod server. Go to Steam>community>Garry’s Mod>Workshop. There should be a list(s) of addons and mods available, so choose the Addon and click on “subscribe.”
If the Mod is not downloaded from Steam, open a subscribed addon, right-click and “open file folder” and then copy the unzipped Mod into the folder. This should automatically install the Gmod addons.
Once that is complete, start Garry’s Mod. At the Gmod launcher, there should be a download bar. Once the Mod is downloaded, the bar will go away, and then quit the launcher.
Compile a collection for the Server:
Once the download and installation are complete, go back to community>Gary’s Mod>Workshop and click on “Browse” just above the addon Icon. Select “collection” then click on “Create Collection.” Insert a name for the Server.
The collection name does not matter, but most people use the addon names for that. Leave a description for the server add-ons as well. After that, players need to choose the tags. Tags will include the server content add-ons that are going to be included in the Server so check all the included options. This will also display the addons included in the Server to other players. Click “save and continue.”
Add edit Addons and Publish:
In the next page, click on “subscribed items” and choose the items that are needed for inclusion into the Server. Click on Save and Continue. In the next page, click on “publish.”
Go to the Steam website and log in. Select the workbench collection, which should be present on the main feed. Or go to Workshop and choose “your files,” then select “files you posted” and go to “collections.” Select the collection, and once done, take a look at the link URL.
There should be a random set of numbers at the end of the URL, which will come in handy later. Copy and paste this URL code onto a word processing tool. Make sure not to copy anything else other than the string numbers at the end.
Generate a Steam API Key
To generate a Steam API key, players need to go to https://steamcommunity.com/login/home/?goto=%2Fdev%2Fapikey.
Once there, click on “revoke my Steam with API key” and click on OK at the small pop-up. If the page asks for a domain name or code, type in “steamidfinder.com.” After that, check out on the “agree to terms and conditions” checkbox and register. In the next page, the API key should be generated. Copy and paste the API key along with the URL code.
Edit the .bat file:
Now a few edits have to be made using the code and key. This will require editing a file. Go to Gmod server’s folder directory and open the launch.bat file with a word edit tool. Look for +maxplayers 16, and insert the code “+host_workshop_collection INSERTCOLLECTIONID -authkey INSERTAPIKEY”. Make sure that there is a space after 16. Do NOT edit, delete or alter anything else in this file.
Now, open the word pad where the code and key were pasted earlier. Copy and paste the URL code and the API key by replacing “INSERTCOLLECTIONID” and “INSERTAPIKEY” respectively.
Run the Server with Addon:
Finally, the next step and hopefully, the final one is to run the Server. The server prompt will take some time to mount the addons onto the Server, and the more addons you have, the longer the mounting process will take.
Once the mounting is complete, it is time to see if the Server is working. Start the Gmod launcher, click on “find multiplayer game,” go to History or Local network, and the Server should be available on the lists under Sandbox.
Join and run the game to see if the addons are functioning correctly. They should be accessible and working now.
Common Errors in running Multiplayer Add-ons:
When others join the Server, sometimes the addons will not load, even though the Server should automatically download them onto the player’s game. This is due to downloading errors on their part. Share the link of the addons and let them download. After that, restart the game and the addons should work will on their part too.
If there are server crashes, restart the Server. If that does not work, check the addon version and compatibility with the current Gmod build. Feel free to contact us here at Fatality Servers if you’re having issues with your Garry’s Mod server hosting plan.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the monthly hosting rental cost?
The server configuration that you choose determines the cost of Garry’s Mod server hosting. Other factors that add to the cost include the number of slots, additional memory, the server type (VPS or shared), MySQL database, branding and the payment period you want.
Also, we offer a 30% discount per month if you decide to rent the server for a longer period. If you wish to play Garry’s Mod for longer, we recommend renting a server for 3+ months.
How long do I have to rent a server?
You are required to rent a server for any game (including Garry’s Mod) for at least 30 days. Longer you choose to rent a server, more cost-effective it becomes for you. With a 30% discount, it becomes further cheaper. Also, you can choose to split the game among friends/players that join your server.
Will my server always be online?
Yes, your Garry’s Mod server will always be online. This is credited to our 99.9% uptime. With prepaid server, you remain online even if you turn your computer or console off. This allows your friends or team members to enter the server anytime they want. For this, your PC, PS4 or Xbox One does NOT have to be on all the time. Also, you can access the server via dashboard even if you are not playing the game directly.
Can I change to another game later?

How many players can join my server?
The number of slots you choose for your server determines how many players can join your server. We offer 10 – 128 slots for Garry’s Mod server hosting. However, if you opt for a VPS server, the number of slots depends on RAM, CPU, etc.
Do I need more RAM/CPU for my server?
You only need more RAM/CPU for your server if you want to add a lot of resources or go for the game in basic mode. Prepaid game servers come perfectly configured, and so, you need not choose add-on specs. But if you want to do so, you can. Check if it needs more RAM/CPU. Then, you must add more RAM/CPU for your server before checkout.
Can I install mods/add-ons?
Yes, that’s what Garry’s Mod is all about!
As you enter Garry’s Mod, there will be regular mods and add-ons released. You are free to install as many mods and add-ons as you wish to. This makes your game more interesting and inviting. If you do not know how to install Garry’s Mod mods/add-ons, our detailed guide can help.
