Reliable servers in Nurnberg and Falkenstein
Renting a server in Germany is the choice of those who care about the reputation of their project and are ready to invest in its reliability. Therefore, we have taken care of creating a reliable environment that will allow you to calmly develop the project and not be distracted by its support.
Unihost servers are located in the data centers of Nuremberg and Falkenstein, Germany. Servers are connected to all major European highways at a speed of 1 Gbps. There are backup power systems and Internet connections, protection from DDoS at the datacenter level and administration of servers with the ability to monitor.
A dedicated server is the best solution for the large projects that need a large amount of resources. But buying the server is not enough — you need to support it. That’s why projects that need to stay online every second of their existence pick the Unihost servers in Germany. All data centers are built by the N+1 scheme (there is always a single backup powerline and internet connection). The crews are trained and can handle any kind of emergencies.
German data centers host both powerful, yet affordable servers with Intel Core CPUs and specialized Enterprise-level servers with Intel Xeon CPUs and ECC memory. That’s why German servers are popular among:
If you are purchasing more than a single server and want to combine them in a single network, you’d better take a look at the dedicated servers in France, Canada, Poland and Netherlands. These data centers support the vRack system that allows you to create encrypted virtual local networks for free. But if you are after stability and performance, Unihost dedicated servers in Germany can’t be beaten.
Windows Server 12/16+
Didn’t find the server that would suit your project perfectly? You don’t have to compromise! All components of our Dell PowerEdge servers can be exchanged to create your personal config. Just contact us and we will help you create an upgrade order correctly.
We will filter out all traffic before it even gets to your servers! All traffic packages pass through the firewall server that reviews all traffic with heuristic algorithms and bars the suspicious packages from the actual servers. If you want to, you can order an additional firewall and set up your own rules.
If you are experiencing issues with the server components, we will replace them fast and at our own cost. If the issue is not critical, we will confirm the date of replacement first. Replacing fully functional hardware is also possible, but we will bill the cost of the hardware to you.
Dedicated servers in Germany are connected to the main European internet channels at 1 Gbit/s without any traffic restrictions. If you need to, the channel can be expanded to 3 Gbit/s with low latency.
All servers can be managed from the Client Area. Reboot the server, reinstall the OS, check out the usage statistics or manage other Unihost services directly from your browser.
You no longer have to remember hundreds of the SSH commands or stare in the black-and-white terminal. Connect to the server via the KVM-over-IP and manage it in the Remote Desktop mode. It’s just as easy as working with a computer standing on your desk!
Hydroelectric stations on Rhine provide our data centers with green energy. Also, the data centers themselves use only energy-efficient hardware that allows saving on the energy. Despite the fact that servers work 24/7, they do not hard their environment.
Datacenters are certified by the DIN ISO/IEC 27001 standard that guarantees data security on your servers. All our employees participate in trainings on the IT security, and the only people allowed a direct access to the server are the technical support teams during the maintenance period.
Each server comes with an ISPmanager 5 Lite control panel (market price — $3/mo). ISPmanager has all the features of cPanel and allows you to manage the server with a convenient web interface.
Renting a dedicated server for the long term is cheaper! We will discount all server with a billing cycle of 6 months or higher with a 2.5% discount, while the servers with a billing cycle of 12 months or higher are 5% off!
German quality for your project.
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.
On the German servers, IPMI must be enabled via this manual.
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.
Servers in Germany have no traffic limits at all.
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.

Yes, of course. We do not limit any data transfer and offer you a root-level access to the server.
We allow usage of Tor, OpenVPN, and anonymizers on the Unihost servers. If you still have doubts, please contact us in chat.
We do not allow:
Warez, backdoor, crack and other websites that break the Unihost Terms of Service.
Yes, as long as you do not distribute or advertise adult on the child-, zoo- and rape subjects, as well as content that you do not have rights for. If your server is located in Germany, you will also have to block access to the server for all German IPs, preferably — using iptables.
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.
