How to Host Your Own Palworld Xbox Server

Hosting your own Palworld Xbox server can be a rewarding experience, giving you full control over your gameplay environment. Whether you prefer a quick setup using Pockethost or hosting the server on your own PC, this guide will walk you through the process. We’ll cover two primary methods:

  1. Creating Your Palworld Xbox Server with Pockethost
  2. Hosting Your Palworld Xbox Server on Your Own PC

1. Creating Your Palworld Xbox Server with Pockethost

If you’re looking for a fast and easy solution that doesn’t require a powerful PC or a remote machine, Pockethost is a great option. Follow these steps to get started:

  • Click here and order your game server.
  • Your server will be available in less than a minute.
  • Pockethost’s technical support team is available 24/7 to assist you with any questions.

This method is perfect if you want to avoid the complexities of server management and prefer a plug-and-play solution.

2. Hosting Your Palworld Xbox Server on Your Own PC

For those who prefer more control and are comfortable with a bit of technical setup, hosting your server on your own PC is the way to go. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Requirements:

      • You need a PC or a remote server to run the Dedicated Server since it can’t be started directly on your Xbox.

2. Install the Dedicated Server:

      • Open Steam and go to your library.
      • Ensure that “Tools” is checked and search for “Palworld Dedicated Server”.

    • The first time you start the server, a “Saved” folder will be created in the directory: steamapps\common\PalServer\Pal.
      To get there, right click Palworld Dedicated Server in your steam library, go to properties, then to installed files and hit “browse…” at the top.
