Key features of the control panel allow you to:

  • View information: IP and port, current status (not for Killing Floor), steam connect hyperlink, FTP link.
  • Automatic Management: Automatically restarts your server when it no longer responds to the game protocol, patches your server when an update comes out and no one is on the server (not for Killing Floor). These features can be turned on/off in the panel.
  • Command Line: Configure your default map and gamemode (if applicable to your game type). For Garry's Mod servers you can also configure a workshop collection id and auth key.
  • Simple Config: Easily configure common server.cfg settings: server name, rcon password, join password, download control, alltalk, round limit, and flashlight (most games except Minecraft, Killing Floor, and Left for Dead 2).
  • Advanced Config: Use the advanced interface to change server.cfg directly without the need to open a FTP client (when applicable to your game type).
  • Map Cycle: Completely control your map cycle using a click-and-drag interface (for game types with map cycles).
  • Map Upload: Upload a map using your browser.
  • RCON: Access the full RCON command interface. Enter RCON commands in an input box and see the result on screen (for source based games only).

  • Common Addons: Use common addon installers with first Steam admin input: Sourcemod and Metamod Source, AMX ModX, ULX/ULIB, DarkRP, and Mani Admin Mod. In addition without admin we install Mattie EventScripts and Evolve (addons available to install varies by game type, these addons are the work of others and copyright for the mods themselves remain with their respective creators. In no way have they endorsed or made any representation of this product).
  • SVN Addons: For Garry's Mod, click to install or update various addons via SVN.
  • Admin: Change your control panel and/or FTP password, add sub-users with Admin or User privileges.
  • Extras: Install Joomla/clansite, PHPBB3, and HLStatsX:CE (HLStatsX:CE is available for most source based games) in minutes. No more waiting for us to install it for you. We also now offer a local MySQL database that can be created and configured in the MySQL Database Console section of the panel.
  • Console Logs: Review your console logs for problems, use color coding and selective output to help locate problems more efficiently.
  • Server Logs and Sourcemod/AMX ModX Logs: Do a quick search through your log files without having to download them first to your local machine.
