What is Stardew Valley?

Master your ranching skills: Raise animals, grow crops, start an orchard and build useful machines, but this time, with your friends on a server that stays online 24/7!

When your Stardew Valley characters disconnect, your farm will stay online for your friends to join. Should you also wish to prevent fence decay, crop growth and relationship changes while offline, you can do this with your Shockbyte server!

Install Stardew Valley mods and configure your dedicated server to your heart's content!

How are we able to host Stardew Valley rental servers?

We are able to host Stardew Valley rental servers through a Dedicated Server adapter mod that runs on top of the game, allowing us to keep your farm online for others to connect as the Farmer is always connected. However, no progress is lost due to time freezing when no farmhands are online! Additional fixes have been applied to ensure that you can progress through the entire game with your friends.

Admins are able to manage the amount of cabins on the farm, to allow more players to join at any time during the farms progression.

Our servers run on a SMAPI client, allowing for a complete Stardew Valley Modding Experience. Additionally, Stardew Valley Expanded can be automatically installed in less than 60 seconds via your server settings!
