Get started with your first dedicated server
Dedicated servers in the Rise range are the best value bare-metal servers offered by OVH, and are backed by groundbreaking Intel® technology. The Intel® Xeon® processors behind the Rise range are designed to provide responsive performance, reliability and security, all at very affordable prices.
Although intended primarily for small businesses' projects, the outstanding performance of these servers means that they are also ideal for taking your projects to the next level.
All OVH server ranges include robust anti-DDoS protection, to safeguard you against today's increasingly sophisticated attacks. The Rise range is also available in several regions worldwide, so you can expand into new regions, or provide your current users with a low-latency experience.
The advantages of a Rise server
No hidden costs
When planning your project with OVH, there are no hidden or complicated costs to evaluate. All OVH dedicated servers offer a number of services included by default, such as bandwidth for an unlimited volume of data, anti-DDoS protection, and technical experts on hand, 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 included
Backups are critical for keeping your business up and running under any circumstance. 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 one public IPv4 address and on IPv6 address. You can buy additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
All OVH dedicated servers include optimum anti-DDoS technology to provide you with the best protection against complex and sophisticated attacks and ensure business continuity.
Service Level Agreement - 99.90%
All OVH servers have a 99.90% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
500 GB of storage space
Each dedicated server has a storage space of 500 GB dedicated to backups. This space, completely independent of the server, allows you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
Optional with Rise servers
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 OVH servers, allowing you to keep them when changing machines. Additional IPs can be geolocated in 14 countries.
Additional public bandwidth and guarantees
Our dedicated servers have default public bandwidth. Depending on the needs of your business, you can add additional guaranteed bandwidth. This ensures you maintain a constant flow for your incoming and outgoing traffic.
Additional backup storage
Each of our dedicated servers has a 500 GB backup space for storing your data and configuration files. This space can be increased to 1, 5 or 10 TB 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.
