Hi, with the new update that came out, I heard that you can now host a server without the hassle of port forwarding, and hope to get into server hosting for my friends. But I don't know how to set it up.
Would anyone please provide an up to date guide on server hosting? I'd especially like to know how to name, and set up password protection so that my friends can find and easily access it.

Just create a new game in the Online menu. It should automatically show up on the server list. You can't change the server name (yet) or make it password protected. You can however kick unwanted people and set the party privacy to closed.

[edit] I'm pretty sure you still need to be TCP/UDP 2000 - 2010 forwarded to your pc's ip in your router settings, which should be static with respect to your internal network to host, if not that's news to me, but I'm already forwarded tho.
