Get started with your first server
Dedicated servers in the Rise range are the most affordable bare-metal servers offered by OVH, and are based on a groundbreaking Intel® platform. Intel® Xeon® processors seamlessly combine affordable prices with high performance for servers. They are suited to a wide variety of uses for standalone servers, with a simple range of optimised configurations.
They are also perfect for hosting websites, streaming platforms and business activity, and offer 500Mbit/s of bandwidth, which is well-suited to the standard uses for this server type.
Our anti-DDoS protection is included by default on all OVH servers, giving you optimal protection. These servers will give you the best quality/price ratio, and fully-dedicated resources. The Rise range is available in several regions worldwide, so we can be closest to where you do business. This optimises latency (loading speed) for your end-users as a result.
The advantages of a Rise server
A solution with no extra costs
All OVH dedicated servers offer a number of services included by default for professional usage, such as bandwidth for an unlimited volume of data, anti-DDoS protection and 24/7 technical support at no extra cost.
Choose from more than 30 pre-installed operating systems via the OVH Control Panel. In just a few clicks, your server is set up with your choice of operating system.
With management interfaces such as Plesk and cPanel, you can simplify deployment and administration for a website, email server or database.
Backup storage space
Backups are critical for keeping your business up and running under all circumstances. Rise servers include 500GB external storage space, which is designed to store backups of your data and configuration files. This backup space is secure, free, and can be shared between your servers.
IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server comes with a public IPv4 address, and an IPv6 address. You can buy additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
To guarantee maximum security for your infrastructures, an anti-DDoS system is included with all OVHcloud dedicated servers. This ensures service continuity for your applications in the event of an attack.
Service Level Agreement - 99.90%
All OVH servers have a 99.90% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
500GB of backup storage space
Each dedicated server has a storage space of 500GB dedicated to backups. This space is completely independent to the server, and allows you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
Optional with Rise servers
Additional public bandwidth and guarantees
Our dedicated servers have a default public bandwidth. Depending on your project’s resource requirements, you can choose an additional guaranteed bandwidth option. This ensures you maintain constant throughput for ingress and egress traffic.
Additional IP addresses
You can attach up to 256 IP addresses to your server, with no monthly costs. You only pay a small setup fee of £1.69 ex VAT. IP addresses and/or IP blocks can be transferred between OVHcloud servers, so you can keep them if you choose to change the servers you use. Additional IPs can be geolocated in 14 countries.
Additional backup storage
Each of our dedicated servers has a 500GB backup space for storing your data and configuration files. This space can be increased to 1, 5 or 10TB for larger volumes.
How do I create a basic web server?
Choice of distribution
To get started using your dedicated server, you need to install an OS. OVH offers a range of operating systems that are available to install automatically, and they all operate on an optimised platform. This includes Windows Server, Linux and UNIX operating systems, as well as Plesk and cPanel control panels, not to mention SQL Server for databases. Your server adapts to your needs.
With root access, you control your server
You are free to utilise the full power of your dedicated server. In addition to the choice of operating system, you have root access to your machine. Manage, configure, and secure your server on the command line, or through your choice of control panel, without technical constraints, as required. You can take advantage of our expertise and our datacentres, while remaining the sole administrator of your server!
Fully-dedicated resources for your projects
The most significant advantage of a dedicated server is the power it offers in terms of computing, data processing, and storage capacity. Compared to a shared hosting or cloud solution, all your server’s resources are allocated to you. Because there is no virtualisation layer, you can rest assured that your applications are fully benefiting from dedicated resources.
