Below you will find a list of the best / most popular servers in the world. The list includes the server rank, name, player count, location (distance from your computer), and other game-specific information.
The \"NR\" rank means that a server is suspected of botting, inflating, or otherwise distorting its real player count. These servers are hidden from the server list by default but can appear in your term-specific searches. We advise avoiding these servers for your safety.
In Counter-Strike, players are either automatically paired with the best public, Valve-hosted server with the lowest ping rate, or they can manually choose one. Helpfully, the CS 1.6 client shows players a list of available servers along with their ping rates. The trojan takes advantage of this to lure in victims.
In a new report by Dr. Web, researchers explain how a developer is utilizing game client vulnerabilities, the Belonard Trojan botnet, and malicious servers to promote the game servers of his customers and enlist more victims to the botnet. At its peak, this botnet grew so large that approximately 39% of the 5,000 Counter-Strike 1.6 servers were malicious in nature and attempting to infect connected players.

They are all explained and most of them you will not need to change, but you can. It is recommended that you change the servers name and most of the subsection labeled ROUND. Make sure to change the location to match up with you servers location! It is under GENERAL.
Now the part you have been waiting for. Starting the server.1. Go to C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer2. Find Program called HLDS3. RIGHT click on it and create a short cut. Drag the shot cut to the desktop.4. RIGHT click on the short cut and go to properties.5. In the target field add the following \"C:\\Program Files\\Valve\\HLServer\\hlds.exe\" -console -game cstrike -ip 192.168.254.253 -port 27015 +maxplayers 12 +map cs_assaultThis will start the server in the Command Prompt from earlier, conserves system resources. The game will be counter strike with the IP address of 192.168.254.253. You need to change this to match your IP address from ipconfig /all. There will be an maximum of 12 players and the starting map will be cs_assault. Note about Max players:Steam recommends the following:# 128k uplink = 4 players# 256k uplink = 7 players# 320k uplink = 9 players# 512k uplink = 14 players# 768k uplink = 21 players# 1024k uplink = 28 player# 1140k uplink = 32 playersA general rule of thumb is 35.5 kbs per player. What does this mean This is you Internet speed. Preferably you upload speed. To find you speed go to DSL Reports and test with a test server nearest you. Use the results to determine your max players.Now you can click apply and then OK. To start the server just double click the icon and it will start automatically. Success! To join your server simply start up the computer you will be playing on. Start Steam and find 'Servers' click on favorites tab and add the IP address of you server to 'add a server' Don't forget to add :27015 after you IP address. Mine looks like this. 192.168.254.253:27015 Now just connect to your server.To get others to join you will need to complete a few more steps.Extra: You may want to have your se
