You only need to write a request to [email protected] and specify the access data to the old server and a detailed technical specification describing the necessary OS, software and additional modules.

Advantages

Protection from DDoS

Game servers are particularly vulnerable to DDoS attacks. Often such attacks go on UDP protocol, as a result of which it is difficult to analyze and filter out bad traffic from good users. Additionally, such attacks are used simply to fill the channel. Since this protocol is used by most games, we offer a special protection against UDP DDoS that is currently used by our game servers.

Advantages

Hardware in the European data centers

Servers are located in the best data centers in Europe, equipped by Tier IV standard, Only time-tested brands are used: Dell, Intel, Nvidia. Data centers have backup power lines, auxiliary power lines and diesel generators in case of force majeure.

FAQ

  • Which control panels are available?

    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 after you have bought the server.

  • What software can be installed on the server?

    By default we offer a dozen of 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.

  • Do you allow OpenVPN?

    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.

  • Do you provide IPv6?

    Yes, you can connect order both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, as long as we have free servers

  • What is RAID?

    RAID is a technology that allows you to combine the storage drives into a single array. RAID comes in various kinds:
    RAID 0, used to combine two or more drives in a single array. More common in personal data storage, rarely used in business due to instabilities and proneness to failure.
    RAID 1, a.k.a. mirroring. The second drive becomes a carbon copy of the first one. If any of them fails, all the data can still be restored from the other one.
    RAID 10 (or RAID 0+1) is a combination of two RAID 0 arrays into a RAID 1 array. You basically get a combined array of two drives, as well as its backup copy.

  • What is the difference between Software RAID and Hardware RAID?

    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.

  • What is Hybrid SoftRAID?

    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.

  • What should I do if the server does not respond?

    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.

  • Can I get a physical access to the server?

    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.

  • Can I send my equipment to your data center?

    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.

  • If the hardware of my server goes down, who will be held responsible?

    All our hardware is routinely tested. If any component fails, we will replace it with an identical one, covering all bills.

  • Can I upgrade my server?

    Not all configurations support a direct upgrade, but some line-ups, i.e. PowerEdge do. You can get more details by checking with your support team.

  • Can I order additional IPs?

    In France, Canada and Poland, you can order up to 256 IPs per server, with a maximum amount of subnetworks being 16. The payment is single-time, there will be no monthly bills.
    In Germany, you can order up to 37 IPs per server (a subnetwork of 32 IPs with a /27 mask, 6 subnetworks of 1 IP each and a single dedicated IP). There is an installation fee, as well as a monthly payment. If you need more IPs in Germany, you’d have to purchase an IP pool.
    In Ukraine, you can order up to 11 IPs per server (10 IPs in a subnetwork with a /32 mask and a single dedicated IP). There is both an installation fee and a monthly payment. There is no option to purchase an IP pool in Ukraine.
    You can learn more about the pricing on additional IPs for the servers in the Client Area or during the purchase procedure.

  • How to set up IPMI/KVM-over-IP?

    IPMI is set up by default on servers in Canada, France, and Poland. You can find a button that enables the mode in the Client Area. On the German servers, IPMI must be enabled via this manual.

  • How to set up Reverse DNS?

    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. If your domain had been registered at Unihost.com, you can also set up Reverse DNS in the Client Area.

  • Which Tier does your data center correspond to?

    All our data centers correspond to Tier 3 or Tier 4.

  • Does the traffic between the server and the backup storage count towards the traffic limits?

    Traffic between the server and the backup storage, as well as traffic between two servers in the same data center, is considered internal and does not count towards the limits.

  • How long does the installation and provision of the server take?

    It depends on the location of the server:
    France, Canada, Poland — 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.

  • What documents are needed to order a dedicated server?

    You do not need documents to order a server. But if you intend to pay with a card or Paypal, or you have not ordered from Unihost before, you need to go through a full account verification, which requires a passport or any other government-issued ID.

  • What is the minimal billing period?

    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.

  • Are your dedicated servers limited in any way?

    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.

  • How do you issue the invoice?

    Invoices on the service renewal are issued automatically with an email notification. Invoices are issued based on the billing cycle.

    Billing cycle
    Date of the invoice issue
    1 month 14 days before the due date
    3 months 21 days before the due date
    6 months 30 days before the due date
    12+ months 60 days before the due date

    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.

  • What are my obligations when I buy?

    Follow the Unihost Service Rules. We do not conclude a contract for the obligatory use of the service for a certain time and you can terminate the public offer of Unihost at any time.

  • What if my server is constantly attacked via DDoS?

    We use professional DDoS protection, so we do not worry much about DDoS. If your business is constantly attacked by the competition, we can provide you with additional protection.
