The best solution for placing and viewing video content.
We are pleased to inform you that we can help to organize projects that need video hosting. Projects that are in one way or another connected with videos require a special approach. That`s why we took care of selecting the optimal server solutions for all of your video projects. Video content (eg, movies) is extremely resource-hungry and requires significant server resources. Shared hosting or virtual dedicated server can`t provide the necessary resources while a dedicated server is all yours.
Renting a server for hosting video allows you to evade the usual troubles that are bound to happen with using cloud services for storing videos: namely, automatic compression and reencoding, slow download speed and lack of confidentiality. Storing the videos on your own cloud is the best way to make sure they are safe and forget about all compromises.
Modern cinema fans more often than not prefer to watch their movies at home instead of the theaters. Deploy your own service for watching movies online and create a competition for such giants as IVI and MEGOGO. Due to guaranteed from 500 Mbps channel, your users will never have any issues connected to the download speed.
Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) conquers the world. Almost everyone has a TV or a console that can show IPTV channels. To create such a service, all you need is a server with high data transmission speed and large amounts of storage to store the video on it.
Windows Server 12/16+
Unihost has prepared various OS images that are suitable for projects of different directions and complexity. We offer "clean" OS distributions, assemblies with preinstalled control panels and hypervisor images for creating virtual machines on the server. Only the best for our customers.
You can order installation of any aforementioned software while finalizing your purchase. Do take note, that the licenses and keys must be purchased separately. Please, attach the keys to the order, or purchase them from Unihost in order to ensure the activation of your software.
There are no traffic limits and your connection to the internet is stable 24/7. You can upload and transmit any amount of data all over the world.
Each dedicated server in France is protected from attacks at the data center level. If attempts are detected, the security system (link to the DDoS protection page) will be automatically activated. Filtering requests occur in three stages: analysis, screening and suppression.
Need additional protection from the hackers? Connect a hardware firewall to your server and set up just the way you want! Stop wasting the servers’ resources on the hackers and ill-wishers.
KVM-over-IP is a remote access protocol that allows you to manage the server in a Remote Desktop mode that activates before even the BIOS is loaded. IPMI is an Intelligent Platform Management Interface is a powerful interface that allows getting some usage statistics of the server even if it is completely down.
Unihost Client Area has a lot of server management tools. You can turn it on and off, reboot it, reinstall the OS, repartition the drive, monitor the traffic, manage the IP addresses, access the backup storage and do many more operations without using the terminal or KVM-over-IP.
External 13 TB storage is based on the SATA HDD arrays with RAID10. If you want to share an important data with several servers at once, you won’t find a better solution than a NAS storage. Each storage unit supports up to 10 servers.
With each server, you get 500 GB on the external backup storage. The drives on the storage are combined in a RAID10 array so that the data you sent there will always be available.
vRack allows you to unite several servers into a single virtual network. Your server can safely transmit data within this network regardless of their number or physical location.
Unihost tech support team is working round the clock. Write a ticket in the Client Area, notify us about any issue in the chat or simply give us a call — we are always ready to help you any way we can.
Do you think that the transfer to another hosting company will be too expensive? Then we will cover it! Just send your requirements for the software infrastructure to [email protected] and we will transfer you ASAP!
Datacenters in France comply with the ISO/IEC 27001, SOC 1 Type II, SOC 2 Type II standards and have a STAR rating provided by the CSA. Employees regularly go through trainings and seminars on the information security.
We picked up servers in the bundle of price / quality for the most diverse projects and the most fastidious customers. Each server from the list has different disk layouts: SAS, HDD, SSD, SSM NVMe and their "bundles".
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.
The best solution for placing and viewing video content.
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.
Yes, you can order both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
