Getting Started - How to Access Your CS GO Server and Control Panel
Have you purchased your CS GO server at GGServers? Here’s how to get started!
First, GGServers offers full access to your game server control panel, where users can manage everything that happens on the server.
This article will show the first steps for joining your CS GO server and using the game server panel to manage your server.
✔️ How Do I Find My Game Server Panel and Server Connection Details ✔️
To access your game server panel, you need to follow the next steps:
Log in to your billing account here.
Click on your customer's profile button, then on Email History.
Click on the first option, Your Game Server Details, and you'll see your server information and the game server panel credentials as well.
Note your game server panel credentials and server connection details, then go here to log in. You can find the game server panel link in the welcome email as well.
⚠ NOTE ⚠: Your server connection details will be used to join your server further in the guide.
Use the credentials from the last step and login.
Now, you've just logged in to your CS GO game server panel, where you can see and manage your server.
After logging in, you will be able to find all your instances (game servers). Click on the CS GO instance to see the connection details or to start or stop it. You can also click on Manage to customize and make changes to your server.
Before you start playing, you will have to click on the Manage button mentioned in the last step, then on the Update button.
If you click on the CS GO instance, then on the Manage button, a new page will open where you can fully manage your CS GO server. Also, a new menu will pop up where you can select between multiple options, such as Console to see the server logs or File Manager to access your server files.
🔰 Set Up Your Game Server Account Token (GSLT) 🔰
Before you start playing, you will have to set your Game Server Account Token (GSLT). This is required for your server to be available to other players and to be shown in a higher position on the official list.
This is done to check that the server is created by a real person, who can be responsible if the server is breaking the game's terms of service. If it is, the server and your Steam account may be banned.
You will have to fulfill the following conditions to be able to generate a GSLT:
Have a Steam account that is not banned or limited.
Own the game you make a GSLT for.
Have a phone number assigned to your Steam account.
Not reach more than 1000 GSLT keys generated.
To generate a GSLT key and add it to your server, you need to:
Go to the Steam Community page here and log in first.
Go to the Steam Game Server page here.
Find the Create a new game server account section, add 730 as the App ID, and decide on a Memo, then click on Create. Note the Login Token.
Open your game server panel here and log in with the credentials from the steps above.
Click on your CS GO instance, then click on Manage, and then stop the server.
Click on Configuration.
Click on Source Server Settings.
Find the Game Server Account Token (GSLT) section and paste your GSLT there.
Now you just set up your GSLT on your CS GO server!
🚀 How Do I Join My CS GO Server 🚀
