Dedicated servers for hosting images

Hosting images for your needs!


As the amount of information is increasing at an incredible pace, we need new solutions that ensure comfortable and quick work with graphic images. The best solution is an image hosting service. Image Hosting is the storage of various graphical information (pictures, photos) on a dedicated server. Adding images to a web resource is very energy-consuming, therefore, in order to avoid server overloading, images have to be stored on a dedicated server.

Image hosting

Dedicated servers for image hosting are perfect for creating an online service meant for uploading, storing and downloading images. Create a competition for Imgur, ScreenCloud, Radikal, Flickr, Pixs and other popular resources. Earn money on showing ads and selling Premium accounts.


Content distribution system

Pictures and photographs take up to 90% of the webpage traffic. Therefore it’s not always wise to store them on the same server as web pages. If you move them to a separate image hosting server, they will be processed and transmitted much faster. This will improve your loading speeds and increase your website’s stability.


Image database

Do not trust public image stores, and your organization has a lot of scans, images, photos and drawings? Then these servers are perfect for creating a "cloud" storage. You can block the ports from the outside and open the server only for the specified list of IP addresses. All in completely secure isolation.


Online image editor i.e. a web application

On modern websites, the volume of images can be a large part of the page. The right strategy and tools for working with photos will make the site quick for visitors. Create a powerful service for working with photos in the cloud.

Advantages of renting a dedicated server from Unihost


German quality

All servers from the image hosting line-up are located in the IT capitals of Germany: Nuremberg and Falkenstein. Your data will be stored in modern data centers that are according to the Tier IV standard. All equipment is installed and maintained by leading specialists.


Web-based interface for server management

We provide convenient server management from the Client Area. Restart the server, reinstall the OS, see usage statistics and manage other Unihost services directly from your browser.


Protection from DDoS for free

Filter all traffic before it hits the servers! All traffic packets pass through a firewall server that passes normal packets through and uses heuristic analysis to check out the suspicious ones. If you want to, you can order an additional firewall and configure it for yourself.


Access via KVM-over-IP

Use KVM-over-IP to set the server up at the BIOS level, install or remove any software, drop the forgotten password or reinstall the OS.


Free server management and tech support

Our technical support team is online 24/7. Write a ticket, call us or hit us up in chat with any question and we will help you. Each client gets a Basic server management package, and we are ready to provide and set up especially complex tasks and round-the-clock monitoring with our Premium administration packages.


High speed internet connection

Dedicated servers in Germany are connected to the main Internet channels of Europe at a speed of 1 Gbit/s, which provides a minimal delay from Russia and Ukraine. If necessary, the channel can be expanded to 3 Gbps with a low ping. After exceeding the monthly traffic limit (30-100 TB, depending on the server), traffic becomes paid or the rate drops to 10 Mbps.


A large selection of configurations

We have selected the servers that provide the best price/performance value for different kinds of projects. Each server comes in a different configuration option: with SAS, HDD, SSD, NVMe drives or any of their combination.


Flexi Pack

Don’t have enough storage space or need an ESXI (and therefore a RAID-controller)? Then you need a Flexi Pack that will drastically expand the capabilities of your dedicated server! Flexi Pack contains a hardware RAID controller that allows you to add more hard drives and manage them more efficiently.


Painless project transfer

Our team will gladly help you to transfer the project to the Unihost server with the installation and configuration of the necessary software. From you only need to write a request to [email protected] and specify the access data to the server and a detailed technical specification describing the necessary OS, software, additional modules.


Rapid hardware replacement

In case of any server component failing, we will replace it immediately at our cost. If the issue is non-critical, we will confirm the date of replacement with you first. We can also replace a fully functional piece of hardware at your request, but be aware that we will bill you the cost of the hardware.


Environmentally friendly datacenters

Hydroelectric power plants on the Rhine supply data centers with clean energy. Also, the data centers themselves use only highly efficient equipment, which saves energy. Despite the fact that the servers are open around the clock, they do not harm the environment!


Backup storage for free

All servers from the image hosting line-up come equipped with 100 GB storage space located on a separate server with RAID 10 to minimize the chance of losing important data. If need be, the storage can be expanded up to 10 TB.

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 analogue of cPanel and allows you to manage a server without a terminal, via a neat web interface.


Loyalty program

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.

Make competition to such brands as: Imgur, ScreenCloud, Radikal, Flickr, PIXS and other popular resources.


  • 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 provide IPv6?

    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)

  • 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 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.
    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?

    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.

  • 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.
    • Under Premium server management, provides you with 3 tickets per month.

    Check the Server management page for more details.

  • How fast does the Unihost support respond?

    We answer in chat in 30 seconds or less.

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 Tor, torrent or OpenVPN?

    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:
    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.
