🤔 Compare Factorio Server Hosting in 2023

We'll be reviewing: LowMS, ServerFlex, Nodecraft and GTXGaming - highlighting the differences and benefits between the different providers.


Starting at $7.50 (£6.00, €7.00) LowMS are among the more expensive hosting providers in the market to begin with. The features offered by the provider include DDoS Protection, Game Switching and FTP File Access.

This hosting provider has a number of hidden fees associated with their services; adding $1.93 to the base cost just to remove branding is outrageously expensive, even more so the additional charge of $3.86 for a dedicated IP makes this provider by far the most expensive provider we have come across.

On a positive note, this provider does offer a wide range of locations around the world. When we reviewed LosMS services we found their servers were good - the overall experience after purchasing a server was good however we have heard many complains from review websites about their customer support.


Factorio is the second game released on the ServerFlex platform - the whole team love this game so it was an obvious choice to offer hosting for Factorio.

Starting at $3.99 ServerFlex is one of the cheapest providers.

Offering the usual features such as DDoS protection, automated backups and instant setup. Most notably ServerFlex also has a mod installer for Factorio built into the control panel - check out the video for that feature below.


Starting at $9.99, NodeCraft are by far the most expensive hosting provider we found. They do offer a reasonable quality of service with a partial development team in-house.  Unlike LowMS, NodeCraft don't attract you in with low costs and then hit you with hidden fees - we really like to see a company being honest to their customers.

Their functionality is not unique, however it is bespoke; the NodePanel dashboard is a clean adaptation of TCAdmin/MultiCraft with a nice theme. For most users this will be more than enough, however power users may struggle to find the necessary flexibility with their platform. Offering locations around the world, Nodecraft could be a good choice if you're looking for a standard Factorio server and don't mind paying over the odds for it.


Renting a Factorio server from GTXGaming was, to say, an experience. When doing our research we purchased a server from these guys and it was a truly awful experience. The website was slow, unorganized and difficult to follow. The separation between the Billing Panel and the Control Panel made their service very difficult to navigate.

When we finally got our server working it was a fairly performant server - we could tell this provider does not cheap out on their hardware - if only they wouldn't cheap our on their software!  In regards to pricing GTXGaming came in a tie with ServerFlex, both offer services from $4.50/month.

If you're looking for unique features you won't find them with GTXGaming - they offer the standard array of DDoS protection and backups. This company has been around in the industry for a very long time, and it is blatantly obvious they have stopped creating new features and are now just selling old software.
