Dayz Private Server & Private Shard Game Servers

DayZ Private Server Hosting

DayZ private servers have finally arrived! Now you can run your DayZ server, your way!

How does it work?

DayZ private servers have two parts to them, the private hive or "shard" and the gameserver or "shard slave".
In order to run a private DayZ server you must connect it to a shard. A shard is like a miniature version of the public DayZ hive that users can run for private use. In essence it's like running your own DayZ private hive!

What do I get?

You can run your DayZ server in the traditional ways you're used to in other games, restart, kick, ban, lock/unlock your server (when set to private) and view BEC logs! It's your private DayZ server, run it your way.

Read the full Private Server rules.

DayZ Private Shard

A shard is like a private DayZ hive and is the component necessary to run the closest thing to your own private hive, these are known as "shards". Player characters connected to a server on the same shard will be saved and carry over to any other server connected to the same shard. DayZ private servers (slaves) require connection to a shard in order to function.
At Multiplay we're the proud official host of the DayZ public hive and official servers available in game. When you choose us for your private shard you get the same great reliability the official public hive has enjoyed for years.
