We're dedicated to your experience. Nobody has time for laggy ARK servers

ARK player freezing due to lag, while surrounded by dangerous dinosaurs.

We're gamers too, and we know that nothing is more frustrating than laggy, crashing servers. Unlike other ARK server hosting providers, we make sure not to overburden our servers-- that means we maintain an average of only 12 customers per device. This allows your server to access more CPU cores, disk IOs, and RAM. More power per user means your server will have protection against the common headaches of lag and crashes.

See the Difference

  • 3.3+ GHz Processor

    Our servers use a quad core Intel Xeon E3-1230 v2 or newer processor. New servers are deployed with E3-1231 v3s.


    Error correcting and highly clocked, this RAM is deployed for amazingly high speed performance.

  • Enterprise Grade Solid State Drives

    We use Samsung 830 Pro series 240GB SSDs or better on our servers.

  • Enterprise Grade Hard Disk

    We host our game servers on the SSD, but backups, the OS, and other non-essential files are run on standard disks.

  • 1Gbps Uplink and DDoS Protected Network

    DDoS attacks have are a constant threat to game servers. Our network is built for network attack reliance.

  • Linux OS

    We've built our entire infrastructure on top of a linux ecosystem to focus on performance, security, and stability.

Still on the fence? Here's some nice stuff people have said about us.

"I had a server stood up in a couple hours that I was confident would be up indefinitely. I misunderstood a few things, and the customer service even at 8pm was prompt, courteous, and walked me through everything I needed to know to get the server back on track."
"Great Host! Very Easy to setup, run and make a fun server!"
"Fast customer service, professional company with high-quality servers and knowledgeable staff."
"I've been with many different hosting providers, but Nodecraft has really impressed me. The panel is superb and the server performance is quite impressive.
I'd definitely recommend Nodecraft to anyone who wants to have a reliable and fast server."
Game BIO: ARK: Survival Evolved

You start the game off as a man or woman on the shores of an island named ARK. Your character begins naked, freezing, and starving so you must hunt, gather resources, craft gear (and other items), build a base, and brave the dinosaur-filled wilds in order to survive. You can fight, kill, tame, or even breed dinosaurs and other ancient creatures on the island.

Team up with your friends in PvE or create a PvP server and go head-to-head with other players. You decide! When you host your game with Nodecraft, you make all the server rules.
