Occasionally servers for Rust will go down for whatever reason, updates, or broader server issues. If you ever wanted to check the server status for Rust, it's possible but only for official Rust servers. Here's how you can check the server status for Offical Rust Servers.
How to check official Rust Server status
To check the official Rust server status, you need to view a site such as Downdetector.com. Downdetector is a free tool that players can use that monitor whenever popular games and services such as Rust servers go down. Viewing Downdetector will allow you to check to see if the Rust servers are currently down and if any other users are having issues. You can also check official social media such as the Rust Twitter account for updates on server status.
