I plan on running my own server for me, my wife, and a few friends to play on. We won’t be actively preventing people from joining our server (though if it becomes a problem, that fabulous whitelist option will come into play) but we’re not exactly going to be advertising it to draw in a lot of people either.
I’ve dabbled with running servers in other games, but I never rented a server because I could simply run them on one of my other machines. Obviously, at this point, that’s not an option for rust. I’m used to having control over as much as possible, so I’d prefer a host that let me access as many mods/configurations as possible. Anyone have any good advice?
