Protecting your server
Before you can add your server you need to be 2 things. You need to be a registered community user at SteamBans and you need to be a member of a team. This guide will take you through each step.
Step 1: Signing up
Use the Register form to register, wait for the validation email and login.
Step 2: Getting into a team
To be able to get your server protected you need to be a member of a SteamBans validated team. Check out the Team Requirements to see if your clan/community can be accepted as a proper active SteamBans team. Use the UserCP to add your team application.
NB: Simply joining the SB - Public - team is not sufficient to protect your own servers. You will need to have your own team accepted on SteamBans. The SB - Public - team is only for people wishing to submit demos without having servers to protect.
Step 3: When your team has been accepted you can re-login and use the "manage servers" link you have gotten in the new team menu.
