You can choose between two revisions: Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019. Both versions of Windows are also available in the extended Datacenter Edition. Windows Server 2016 Standard has established as a reliable and stable solution. This OS can balance the load of the software, the storage and processing system is improved. Windows Server 2016 is optimized for innovative cloud computing. The product offers many new capabilities, from developing cloud applications and working with software-defined infrastructure to cost-effective solutions for storage and networking.
This OS has a large list of changes and improvements. Among them is Admin Center (WAC), Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), a new technology that detects and suppresses attacks at the memory and kernel level by terminating malicious processes and closing malicious files. Implemented system analytics, added Linux support inside Shielded Virtual Machines. Windows Server 2019 now supports running Linux operating systems (Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE) inside shielded virtual machines. Added Virtual Network Encryption functionality, which allows you to encrypt virtual network traffic between interacting virtual machines using the DTLS protocol, as well as high-performance SDN gateways.
It is highly important to transfer painlessly, keeping all data and servers’ settings to keep working unobscured. That’s why our support team will help you transfer a project from Unihost with installation and setup. All you need is to write a request to [email protected] and fill in the credentials necessary for the server access, as well as a complete technical request with the necessary OS, software and additional modules.
The software mentioned above may be selected by you while configuring server order. Upon completion of the installation and activation, you will get access to the server on your email with the operating system already installed on it.
If this software is not suitable for you, you can install any own software by using our administrators or by yourself through your personal account or IP-KVM access.
Get a dedicated IP for every project on your server! Additional IPs help to prevent issues with different software and protect the server from hackers.
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!
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.
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.
Is this your first Unihost server in Unihost? Get a $10 discount for it! Grab a coupon from the coupon page and it will be applied automatically once you reach the order confirmation stage.
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.
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.
