  • DigitalOcean

    Using our link will give you $200 in free credit to try any of DigitalOcean's services for 60 days.

    DigitalOcean is a great choice for hosting rAthena. It's cheap, easy to use, and has a great community with many help-topics.

  • OVH

    OVH is another great choice for hosting rAthena. It's fairly cheap and runs on a robust network.

No one at rAthena will ever recommend a hosting provider that explicitly advertises "RO Hosting" packages. They are garbage and should be avoided at all costs.

Optional Clone Information

If you want to have your own forked version but still get updates from the main rAthena repository

  • Fork this repository to your GitHub account
  • List the current configured remote repository for your fork:

    git remote -v
  • Specify a new remote upstream repository that will be synced with your fork:

    git remote add upstream
  • Verify the new upstream repository you've specified for your fork:

    git remote -v
  • You should see the main rAthena repository as well as your forked repository

  • Now, when you want to get updates from rAthena, simply do:

    git pull upstream master
  • Remember that rAthena falls under GNU GPLv3.
