Unihost’s Dedicated Servers in France are located in the world’s most famous datacenters. They are top-notch equipment, well-known for their steadiness to DDoS attacks, high bandwidth, unlimited traffic and a multitude of available IP addresses. All of this makes them perfect for such projects as internal/external corporation networks, e-mails, CRM/ERP systems, instruments for joint remote work, VPN, media resources, backup storages and much more. Each server comes with free basic management plan, which puts all off the everyday maintenance routine on our administrators.
Renting a server in France is the best solution for a large Internet project. If you plan to process a large amount of data or combine servers into a local network, servers in France are the best possible choice.
Servers are located in the data centers of Roubaix, Paris, Gravlin and Strasbourg, connected to the channel with a peak speed of 1 Gbps. Data centers built by the N+1 standard with a backup power source. All servers can be connected to the vRack network, KVM-over-IP and server management are provided free of charge.
Servers in France are suitable for almost any project. Data centers provide both budget servers with Intel Atom CPUs and special servers for processing large amounts of data with Intel Xeon and ECC memory.
Most often, a dedicated server in France is purchased by:
Servers in France are perfect for the projects where multiple servers are involved. All servers in one data center can be combined with an encrypted channel into a virtual local network. You do not need to buy server racks or pay extra for network cards—the service is completely free.
You can connect up to 256 IP-addresses to any server in France, with a single payment for each address. There are hardware firewalls, HA-NAS storage and unlimited bandwidth over KVM-over-IP. All servers are managed by the Unihost support, the basic management plan package is provided free of charge.
Windows Server 12/16+
The software mentioned above may be selected by you while configuring server order. Upon completion of the installation and activation, you will get access to the server on your email with the operating system already installed on it.
If this software is not suitable for you, you can install any own software by using our administrators or by yourself through your personal account or IP-KVM access.
We give 500 GB on our backup storage with each Unihost server. The storage is connected to the server via a VLAN, and the connection is encrypted so as not to compromise the data transfer.
Forget about SSH, the console and other vestiges of the past! Connect to servers via KVM-over-IP and work in Remote Desktop mode! Working with the server is now as convenient as with a computer at home.
We use a modern system for analyzing and filtering malicious packets, blocking IP access, which conducts a DDoS attack for a minute. We also offer a hardware firewall for customizing security settings.
vRack virtual network is an internal network that can connect any servers in the same data center. You no longer need to purchase racks in data centers, order network cards and pay for the traffic between servers!
Do not give two projects one IP-address - let everyone have its own! We offer IPv4 addresses without a monthly payment and IPv6 addresses completely for free. You can use additional IPs to host conflicting software or to protect the control panel of your server from hackers.
Manage the server from the Client Area, restart it, reinstall the OS, see the usage statistics, backup the critical data and perform dozens of other operations without a console or remote desktop. The control panel for all Unihost services is right in your browser.
Don’t want to trust the standard protection from DDoS? Connect a hardware firewall to your server and configure it exactly the way that suits your project! Stop wasting server resources on hackers and ill-wishers!
External storage with up to 13 TB on SATA HDD RAID10 arrays! If you want several servers to receive information from one database, you can just place it on the NAS. One storage can be connected to 10 servers for momentary data exchange.
Servers use water and air cooling without the use of chemicals, which allows you to reduce the cost of electricity and save the environment from excessive pollution.
Data centers in France are certified according to ISO/IEC 27001, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II and passed the STAR rating according to CSA standards. All the staff at the data center regularly visits seminars on information security.
Each server comes with a license for ISPmanager 5 Lite (the usual price is $3 per month). ISPmanager is a full analog of cPanel and allows you to manage the server without a console, through a convenient web interface.
Long-term lease of a physical server has become cheaper! We give a 2.5% discount on servers with a billing cycle of 6 months and a 5% discount on servers with a billing cycle of 12 months.
Unlimited traffic. DDoS protection, IPMI/KVM-over-IP and 500GB backup storage for free.
Each server comes with an ISPmanager 5 Lite control panel. If you wish to use any other panel, you may take your pick from cPanel, Plesk, ISPconfig, OwnCloud or Minecraft Game Server. Check out the detailed list in the server’s cart or contact our support team.
By default, we offer a dozen Linux distributions, Windows Server, several dedicated control panels and some other software. You can pick it either in the cart during the purchase or in the Unihost Client Area. You can also install any software you want, except for any that may harm the server itself or other Unihost servers.
Yes, we allow OpenVPN on our servers. Servers in France, Canada and Poland have unlimited traffic, which makes them a better pick for this task.
Yes, you can order both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. You may order up to 64 IPv6 for free (in case we have free IPs, please contact our support team via chat to ensure)
RAID is a technology that allows you to combine the storage drives into a single array, which helps to prevent data loss if one of the drives gets broken. RAID comes in various kinds:
Software RAID means that the repartitioning will happen at the OS level, while Hardware RAID repartitions the drives before the OS is even loaded. The latter is more reliable and fast since the server doesn’t have to waste resources to manage the RAID structure. Besides, Hardware RAID is the only option that can survive the OS reinstallation.
Hybrid SoftRAID is a combination of HDD and SSD in a RAID array. It is faster than a pure HDD array but falls short of the performance provided by the pure SSD storage.
You can reboot it from the Client Area. While there, you can also check the server’s stats and reinstall the OS. If for whatever reason you can’t do this, contact the Unihost support.
No. Unihost dedicated servers are located in secure facilities and we cannot grant free access to the servers due to the possible risks. Only people who have direct access to the servers are our certified employees tasked with maintenance, and even their access level depends on the tasks at hand.
Usually, you can’t. We can transfer the storage drives with the data you need if the upload takes too long, but direct colocation is not a service we generally provide. You can, however, discuss it with our support, and we may consider your case an exception.
All our hardware is routinely tested. If any component fails, we will replace it with an identical one, covering all bills.
Not all configurations support a direct upgrade, but some line-ups, i.e. PowerEdge do. You can get more details by asking our support team.
The easiest way is to write to [email protected] from the email you used to create the Unihost account and ask which IP should be added to which domain.
All our data centers correspond to Tier 3 or Tier 4.
It depends on the location of the server:
France, Canada, Poland, Russia and Netherlands — up to 12 hours.
Germany — 1 business day for standard configurations. If the server configuration is non-standard, we may need up to 5 business days to provide it.
Ukraine — from 1 to 5 business days.
If you have not gone through the full account verification, we will postpone the provisioning until you complete the procedure.
You do not need documents to order a server. But if you intend to pay with a card or Paypal for the first time at Unihost, you need to go through a full account verification, which requires a passport or any other government-issued ID.
One month. We also offer billing periods of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. If you require a different billing cycle — for example, 2 or 5 months — you will have to contact the sales department to review your case.
For some configurations, there is an option to order a server for a week.
There are no limitations. You can use the server for any number of websites, e-mails, domains etc. We provide complete access to the server at the root level.
Invoices on the service renewal are issued automatically with an email notification. Invoices are issued based on the billing cycle.
Date of the invoice issue
You can also generate an invoice yourself in Unihost Client Area, under the Product Management tab. There you can also change your billing cycle, provided that there are no unpaid invoices for this service. If there are any, you need to pay them first (or ask our support to cancel them) and then generate a new invoice with an updated billing cycle.
Follow Unihost Terms of Service. We do not conclude a contract for the mandatory use of the service for a certain period of time and you can break the Unihost public offer at any time.
