How do I change the name of a Valheim server?

To properly find your Valheim server in the list, it is useful to change the hostname of your server.
Go to the  **game panel** and select your desired server.

Startup Parameters

Several settings for your Valheim server can be changed in the Startup Parameters. Here you can also change the Hostname. Navigate to Configuration > Startup Parameters to access these settings.

Enter your desired server name under  Server Name and save it by pressing ENTER or by pressing the Update Startup Parameters button.

After saving, the name is set immediately. You only need to restart the server to apply the name. After a restart, it may take a few minutes before your server is listed.
