If you’re looking to get started on a project without paying, we recommend claiming a free development server. You don’t need to enter any payment details, and you can cancel it at anytime.

Get logged into the game panel.

Once you choose your plan and finish the checkout process, you will receive an email with information on how to sign into the Atomic Panel.

Step 2: Follow our “Initial Server Setup” guides.

To help all GMod server owners, we have created a comprehensive knowledge base about all the basic things you need to know to get your first GMod server started.

Even if you aren’t hosting with us, these guides are generally pretty universal, and should work for what you are trying to do.

Feel free to skip around. If you want to go from start to finish, following all of our guides should get you to a pretty good place to start off.
