Advantages of renting a dedicated server from Unihost


Remote control via IPMI

IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) allows you to monitor the server, restore the access to its control functions, and log all the events without even accessing the CPU, BIOS or the OS. Platform control functions are available even when the system itself is powered off.


Server management from the Client Area

There’s no need to type commands into the terminal to control the main options and monitor the server. All main server management functions are available straight from the Client Area: power it on and off, reboot it, reinstall the OS, defrag the drive, monitor the traffic, manage the IP addresses, provide access to the backup storage and reboot the server in the Rescue mode in the intuitive interface right in your browser.


Guaranteed 500 Mbit/s channel and unlimited traffic

Upload and download however many files you want without any limits on the traffic. Bandwidth connection is stable and fast enough to transfer terabytes of files to anywhere in the world.


Top-grade hardware

Enterprise-grade server hardware in the European and Canadian data centers. We use only the hardware we know we can rely on — all servers are built on the top-of-the-line Intel Xeon CPUs combined with Enterprise-grade HDDs and ECC RAM.


Large selection of configurations

We have picked the servers that satisfy the price/performance ratio the most. They suit all kinds of projects. Each server has different drive options: SAS, HDD, SSD, SSD NVMe or any combination of the above.


Server location choice

Pick from the best datacenters of Canada, France and Poland to provide your customers with the lowest possible latency and the fastest access to your services.


Server management for free

Basic management for free with every Unihost dedicated server. Also offering premium management packages with monitoring for immediate troubleshooting and preventing all possible issues in advance.


10 Gbit/s private network

All servers from the EG line can be combined into a private (internal) network at a speed of 10 Gb / s. Transfer files between servers even in different data centers (France, Poland and Canada) at the maximum speed. You can create a "cloud" cluster of multiple servers for maximum performance.


A scalable bandwidth channel

If the number of sessions on your website increases or you need to download large amounts of data, you can always order an extended Internet channel up to 3Gb/s.


Free backup storage for each server

With every server comes 500 GB free backup storage located on a separate RAID 10 array. It’s meant to minimize the chance of data loss and can be expanded up to 10 TB. You can also purchase a HA-NAS storage (ссылка на страницу) that will provide the most secure storage possible.


Painless project transfer

Our team will gladly help you transfer a project to the Unihost server, including installation and setup of all necessary software. All you need is to send an email to [email protected], including all the requisites necessary to access the server, as well as a detailed description of the task with the OS, software and modules that are vital for your project.


DDoS protection at the datacenter level

We are ready to protect your servers and data from any DDoS attacks including L7. All servers are protected at the datacenter level. Hackers and competition can no longer harm your project due to our 3-tiered protection system, which will analyze, filter and suppress all IPs that send malicious packages. You will always get access to your data due to our new traffic filters and firewall.

Discounts and promo offers for Unihost servers


Control panel for free

Each server gets an ISPmanager 5 control panel (market price — $3 per month). ISPmanager is a complete analog of cPanel and allows you to manage a server without a terminal, via a neat web interface.

Long-term physical server rent just became cheaper! Get a 2.5% discount on the servers with a billing cycle larger than 6 months, and get a 5% discount on the servers with a billing cycle larger than 12 months.

Dedicated servers for the file hosting

Ideal for file storage


  • 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 team.

  • What software can be installed on the server?

    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.

  • Do you allow OpenVPN?

    Yes, we allow OpenVPN on our servers.

  • Do you provide IPv6?

    Yes, you can order both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

  • What is RAID?

    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:

    • 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 asking our 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 64. 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 /28 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.
    In Russia and Netherlands up to 64 IP addresses are available for ordering. Payment for these IP addresses is made monthly.
    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.

  • 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, 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 kind of support do you offer?

    Unihost tech support:

    • Makes sure that all servers operate 24/7 in a stable manner under any circumstance.
    • Under Basic server management, provides you with 1 ticket per month that can be used to set up/install/manage any software on your server.

Issues from customers with Premium server management are given priority in such cases.

  • Do you have an uptime guarantee?

    Yes, we guarantee 99.9% uptime. For more details, look at the Service Level Agreement.

  • Do you offer server monitoring?

    We do not offer server monitoring under the basic server management, but it is available as a separate level of server management.

  • Do you set up the server OS?

    Under Basic server management, we only set up some modules in the Linux OS. If you run Windows, you’ll have to set it up on your own. For more information, check out the Server management page.

  • How private is my information?

    We do not review any information on the customers’ servers unless it is necessary to solve a support ticket. For more information, check out the Unihost privacy policy.

  • Can I transfer my data to a different company?

    Yes, of course. We do not limit any data transfer and offer you a root-level access to the server.

  • Can I run torrent or OpenVPN?

    We allow usage of OpenVPN and torrent on the Unihost servers. If you still have doubts, please contact us in chat.
    We do not allow:
    phishing websites;
    Warez, backdoor, crack and other websites that break the Unihost Terms of Service.

  • Can I use your servers to store and distribute adult content?

    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.

  • 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.

  • How do you respond to abuses?

    We give you 12 hours to solve the issue that leads to the abuse. If you get more than 3 abuses of the same kind, or if you refuse to solve the issue, your account and all services will be blocked.

  • What will happen if I do a chargeback or start a PayPal dispute?

    According to the Unihost public offer, your account will be blocked, and all of its data will be deleted. The customer that made the chargeback will be added to the international FraudRecord list.
