How Does a Private Server Work in Roblox?
Roblox is a popular online platform where users can create and play games. One interesting feature of Roblox is the ability to host private servers.
Private servers allow players to have exclusive access to a game, limiting it only to invited friends or selected players. In this article, we will explore how private servers work in Roblox and how you can create and manage them.
Creating a Private Server
To create a private server in Roblox, you need to be the owner or have administrative privileges for the game you want to host. Here’s how you can set it up:
- Step 1: Open the game you want to make into a private server.
- Step 2: Click on the three dots (..) on the right side of the screen.
- Step 3: Select “Configure this Game” from the dropdown menu.
- Step 4: In the game configuration settings, scroll down until you find “Private Servers” and click on it.
- Step 5: Toggle on the “Enable Private Servers” option.
- Step 6: Save your changes.
Once you have followed these steps, your game will now have private server functionality enabled.
Inviting Players to Your Private Server
Now that your private server is set up, it’s time to invite players. You can invite specific friends or share a link that allows anyone with the link to join. Here’s how:
- Step 1: Open the game you created the private server for.
- Step 4: In the game configuration settings, scroll down and click on “Private Servers”.
- Step 5: Under “Server Access”, select either “Friends Allowed” or “Link Only”.
If you choose “Friends Allowed,” only your friends will be able to join your private server. If you select “Link Only,” anyone with the link can join, even if they are not on your friends list. Remember to save your changes after making your selection.
Joining a Private Server
If you have been invited to join a private server in Roblox, here’s how you can access it:
- Option 1: Invitation Link:
- If you received an invitation link, simply click on it.
- The link will redirect you to Roblox and automatically join the private server.
- Option 2: Through Friends List:
- If your friend is hosting a private server and they are on your friends list, follow these steps:
Note: This method only works if they have set their private server to “Friends Allowed.”
- Open your Roblox friends list.
- Locate the friend who invited you to the private server.
- Click on their profile and select “Join Game.”
- If you know the name of the game hosting the private server, follow these steps:
Note: This method only works if the server is set to “Link Only.”

- Select the game from the search results.
- If there is an available private server, click on “Play” to join it.
That’s it! You are now ready to enjoy games in private servers within Roblox.
Remember that private servers offer a more exclusive and controlled environment for playing with friends or selected players.
