You may create your dedicated server type for matchmaking.

Diarkis MatchMaker uses HTTP server type for matchmaking by default. You may configure matching (MatchMaker) to use different server type.

By creating a custom server type and configure MatchMaker to use it, you may have dedicated server type for matchmaking only.
