Do I need to pay for a Teamspeak server?



  • I want to talk to four friends in private while gaming. I know of Skype, but that is not ideal as "Push to Talk" is limited (I can't set it to my mouse 5 button).

    I've heard of Teamspeak, but I need to pay for a server?



  • The Teamspeak software is free of charge. You can setup your own server and use the clients as much as you want. Just download them from here.

    But a Teamspeak server requires bandwidth and some other resources, so there are different service provider that charge you for a Teamspeak server.

    That said, here are your options:

    • If you already have an own server / virtual server you can install the Teamspeak server and use it for no additional charge.
    • You can lease a professional Teamspeak server (just search for "teamspeak server hosting")
    • You can try a free / public Teamspeak server (just search for "teamspeak server public free")

    Personally I own a virtual server and have setup my own Teamspeak server. It is not that hard to do.
