New servers can often take 24-48 hours to appear on the in-game list initially.
Below, you can find some additional steps that may assist in your server showing up on the in-game list.
Shorten your Hostname
Step 1: Log into your control panel.
Step 2: Go to the "Configuration Files" area and open "server.cfg".
Step 3: Ensure your Hostname is no longer than 40 characters and contains no special characters
Ensure that your custom commandline is selected
Step 1: Log into your control panel.
Step 2: Navigate to the commandline manager.
Step 3: Click the select button on the right-hand side.
Force validate your server files
Step 1: Click on the 'File Manager'
Step 2: Right-click and delete the 'steamapps' folder
Step 3: Run the 'Steam update' module
Step 4: The files will validate

We recommend that you then add the server to your steam favourites list so that you can see your server in the favourites tab in-game.
Step 1: Open your Steam client.
Step 2: At the top left, click on 'View'.
Step 3: Click on 'Servers' and head over to the 'Favorites' tab.
Step 4: Click 'Add Server to Favorites'.
Step 5: Copy and paste your server's IP and port in the format of IP:PORT. It is displayed in this format within your control panel in multiple locations when viewing your service.
Step 6: Click the Refresh button in the Steam server browser.
Step 7: Click on your server in the favourites list and attempt to join it.
If you have Oxide/uMod installed, make sure you're searching in the modded section of the in-game browser.
If your server has EAC disabled, it will not show up on the in-game list.
Please note, the above-mentioned steps are suggestions and may not resolve the issue. Host Havoc has no control over the in-game list.
