Outstanding Service


Absolutely outstanding service for any survival servers you need, their customer service is fast and effective. Prices are extremely competitive.

I have used them for the best part of a year, across a total of three games and they have always done their absolute best to fix any issues that have occurred in a very short period of time.

I've had my Ark server for 3 months and I love it, I'm setting up a crossark this Friday, so I am super excited. I wouldn't dream of hosting with anyone else. I've had NO issues with lag at all, and we have a MASSIVE 20x20x20 underwater tek base. They offer great gameplay for the price. It IS the cheapest when you compare to $/slot. Their customer service is always kind and friendly. Tickets are answered within a few hours and they are willing to help and explain things for you. With the shut down of all my official servers, I can absolutely say that I am so glad my tribe moved to a CAS server. We will now have a cross ark to meet all our needs!

ark logoArk Survival Evolved History

With a choice of male or female you start your journey, in the freezing temperatures on a treacherous mystery island known as ARK, the only way of survival is the following, scavenging resources, crafting weapons and tools, growing crops and finding the knowledge to research better equipment and to build a basic shack or a powerful home to withstand the elements of ARK. Gain experience in order to tame dinosaurs of ARK in order to maintain survival to help you survive against other primaeval creatures that roam the island, either work solo and trust no one, or team up with other helpless survivors in order to survive the wild and elements of ARK


On ARK there are over 100 creatures and dinosaurs that can be captured and tamed, this giving you the higher chance of survival with the help of your new primaeval friend. To do this you must render your selected dino unconscious, and then nurse the dinosaur back to health with the required food and berries to tame them. Survival is key on ARK, this means you must harvest food and drink in order to survive, you can find all kinds of berries, fluids and meat in order to do this.



Picking seeds from vegetation is a key in survival, by planting them in plots that you've created and laid down yourself, feeding the crops with water and using fertilization from the poop of the creatures of ARK, to grow your own crops and vegetation to keep nutritious and energies high. Be sure to tend to your crops, nurture them and watch them grow, crops can then be used for certain cooking methods and medicines to help along your journey! Be sure to hunt for the rarest plants in order to grow some of the most powerful resources! Take on the world of ARK in a violent barbaric manner or push through as a farmer with a more peace offering outlook on life!


Servers tend to exceed the 100+ mark; thus giving players, your created characters, your pet and tame, and everything you have built on ARK stay active in-game even when you go offline. You can travel any character to and from different galaxies and worlds of ARK by logging on and using the steam economy.  All ARKS are slightly different than each other; to conquer and to paste your presence and mark on, one at a time! You can now also create your own worlds and servers', for endless and infinite surprises.


You now have a choice between bringing your characters to local games, and to dedicated official servers; along with your characters, your items too, and lastly back and forth from multiplayer mode to single player mode. Enjoy the features of modding your game with the help of steams workshop and the customized Unreal Engine 4 editor.


All items your craft have limited durability and will wear out upon use if not repaired. When you leave the game and go offline, your character will remain sleeping in the current world. Your inventory will remain on your character or in any boxes you have stored them in previously to logging off. Nothing is safe, anyone can loot or steal your goods, so to prevent this and achieve security team-up, built up and improve security with decent tames to guard your loot. You can knock out unconscious, capture, take a hostage and force feed other players to use them to your needs, from harvesting their faeces to use as fertilizer for crops, for blood transfusions, or feed them to your predatory tames!  New hosting available, PixArk Server Hosting, Customers that liked Ark also like Battalion 1944 Hosting.

CraftAndSurvive TrustPilot Reviews

Love These Guys!

I've used a few different hosting companies for my Ark Servers, but have found my new home. The tech support has been super fast, super helpful and super courteous. Some of the other servers I had would be down for days and tell me there was a DDOS and there was nothing they can do about it. CraftAndSurvive has been very fast to help me with each issue I've had. In my opinion, they have even gone above and beyond on my last issue. These guys are great and I would recommend them anytime.
