Roblox: How to create a private server and configure it

We teach you the steps to follow to be able to create a private server in any Roblox game, even in those of your creation. So you can play alone with your friends!

In our Roblox guide, we have already explained how to make new friends and play games with them, but what if you also want to create a private server to enjoy with your friends?

Roblox allows users to create private servers very easily in just a few steps and without any programming knowledge. If you have no idea how to do it, we will explain it to you in this post.

How to create a private server in Roblox?

In order to create a private server in Roblox you have to follow these steps :

  • Sign in with your Roblox account.
  • Find the game in the Roblox Catalog that you want to create a private server for.
  • Enter the game details page and look at the section called "Servers".
  • Click on this section and you will be able to see any server that you have created in this game or of which you are a part.
  • To create a new private server, you have to do is click on the "Create private server" button.

  • Next, a text box will appear in which you must write the name of your server.
  • Finally, you just have to click on "Get now" to finish creating your private server.

Roblox private servers, formerly also known as VIP servers, are an option that allows both free and paid gameplay. Keep in mind that some games allow you to create private servers completely free, while others have a cost in Robux to create them (depending on whether the game developer has put a price on it or not).

If the price is set to "Free", you will be able to create the private server at no cost. Although remember that there will be a limit of free private servers that you can create in each experience.

Pay for a private server and cancel the server

In case you pay to create a private server, please note that you will be charged upon purchase and monthly to keep the server active (the monthly renewal fee will be deducted from your Robux balance automatically each month).

Private server prices are set by each developer of a game. As a general rule, these usually cost between 5 to 10 Robux. If you want to cancel the subscription to a paid private server, do the following:

  • Go to the page of the game where you have created the private server.
  • Click on the Menu button for your private server (similar to the three dots) which is on the far right of the Servers section.
  • Click Configure.
  • Now click on the green Active icon of your subscription status.
  • Finally, click on "Cancel payments" in the confirmation window to cancel the subscription to the server.
This will remove the subscription from your paid private server, you will still be able to use it for the rest of the month you have already paid for, but the subscription will expire at the end of that period of time and then the server will be deactivated.

How to enable private servers in your created games

In another section of our guide, we have already told you step-by-step how to start creating games within Roblox with the Roblox Studio tool. In case you have created a game and want to enable the option of private servers for your experience, you will have to follow a few steps to do so.

  • When you create a game from Roblox Studio private servers are disabled by default.
  • To enable private servers for your game you have to click on the Game Settings button within the game editor, located on the Home tab.
  • Then enter the Monetization section.
  • Now make sure you activate the "Private Servers" button, the private servers. Doing so will bring up a few more options to set the price of the server.
  • When you finish, press the Save button so that everything is saved.

You should now be able to create private servers in your Roblox-created games and other users will be able to do so as well depending on the options you have set. Remember that if you have included a price to the servers and later change this price, all the subscriptions you have active by other users will be canceled (although they will receive a message about the change made in their inboxes).

How to set up a private server?

Right after creating a private server in Roblox, you will be given the opportunity to set its options. If you skip this step, you can always modify your private server settings by going to the game page, pressing the three dots button, and then clicking "Configure".

Among the main options of the server you can:

  • Change or edit your server name again.
  • Turn the "Allow Join" feature on or off, to make the server accessible or inaccessible to you and others.
  • Add a list of allowed friends and server members who can join the server.

Invite friends to a private server

To invite your friends to a private server you have several methods available at your fingertips. First of all, you can invite them to join your game just like you would invite them to any other regular game. On the other hand, you can add them to the list of allowed friends on the private server so that they can join on their own.

Finally, the option we are left with is to generate a private server link. This is done from the private server configuration section, in this tab, you will see the option at the bottom.

  • Just click on the "Generate" button to get a link from the server you have created.
  • You can copy and paste this link into chats with your friends so they can join the server directly.
  • You can also click "Regenerate" once you have generated a link to obtain a new one whenever you want (keep in mind that the previous ones will no longer be valid to join the experience).
