How to Set Up a FiveM Server Guide

In this article, you'll find a step-by-step guide on creating a FiveM server, covering installation, configuration, and customization.

With the growing number of FiveM players worldwide, you may be considering starting your own FiveM server for you and your friends, or you may have years of experience in running your own FiveM server! In this blog, we will be going over the basics of a FiveM server, and what you should know about hosting one.

What is FiveM?

FiveM started as a small project with a clear goal in mind: to allow players to play Grand Theft Auto V online with customization. At first, it was called Five Reborn, but later was renamed FiveM, with the M meaning modification. FiveM allows players to create and join player-built multiplayer servers and have a complete custom experience, with the ability to tailor the server to your specific interests and preferences, such as custom vehicles, custom buildings, and custom clothing.

FiveM allows users to create their own private servers with custom rules, mods, and game modes, and it has gained popularity among the GTA V community as a way to experience an alternate reality, in a way of their choosing. The majority of FiveM servers are based on roleplaying, where players assume different roles and interact with other players in a virtual world.

How do I get started with my own server?

Some people have their own wants and needs when it comes to a FiveM server and may just want to start a server, allowing them to make it their own. Well, that is completely possible, and RocketNode has spent a lot of time developing a panel that makes running your own server easy and efficient. With leading prices, RocketNode has also made it easier than ever to start a server with a budget in mind, on industry-leading equipment. Starting out, some people decide to host their server on their home computer, which is highly advised against in the FiveM community. A lot of FiveM server owners rely on server hosting to get their server online, fast and easy.
