How do I ban people from my server?

This feature is only available for users who have paid for their server.
Unlike other providers, we won't hassle you and require you to know how to use FTP to change text files. ValheimServerHosting provides an easy to use interface that allows you to easily change Valheim server settings without leaving your web browser.

Accessing and editing banlist.txt

Valheim uses the banlist.txt file as a reference for banned players, which is present in every Valheim server. You can access by logging in to your ValheimServerHosting account and navigating to your server's dashboard. You should be able to see the "Edit Ban List" button. If the button is greyed out, double check if your server is currently subscribed to a payment plan. If you are subscribed to a payment plan and this button is still greyed out, let our team know by clicking on the message bubble available on the lower right part of the screen.

To add users to the banlist.txt file, you need to enter the players' steamID64. Rest assured that this value is stored securely within our servers and will only be accessible through your account.
