Connect a Server Provider

Now that you have completed the customization step, you need to connect to a server provider in order to set up your network and host your blockchain.

Navigate to ‘Server Providers’

Profile Name - This is the name you will use for this particular profile.

Access Secret - You will require an Application Programming Interface (API) key in order to connect to your chosen server provider. Simply copy and paste the key in the relevant field or enter it in manually if preferred.


You will need to sign up for a profile with your chosen server provider and generate the API key you require for ARKLauncher. For more information, please consult the relevant DigitalOcean and/or Hetzner documentation.

Upon entering in your profile name and API key, click the Save & Continue button to complete the server provider selection process.

Whenever you revisit the Server Provider page, you will see any server providers you have added listed under the Active Providers section.


Having successfully completed the server provider step, you may now move on to selecting a Server Configuration.
