Game server not showing in-game server list

Often new ARK admins can not find their game server on the in-game server list.

This is a known issue, which sadly is caused by an in-game bug: The in-game server browser has a limit of 5000 servers. This is an issue since there are more than 10.000 ARK servers and there is no guarantee that your game server will appear on the list.

We strongly recommend to register your server on a listing website such as, if you are interested in getting new players. 
You can also add the game server to your favourite server list via Steam or you can use the free community website to get direct access to your game server.
