The advantages of a Game server
The Anti-DDoS Game solution, included with all of our Game dedicated servers, is the most efficient and robust on the market. Its purpose is to avoid any downtime for your services. Unlike standard solutions, it is adapted to UDP traffic (used for video, audio and video games), with ingress and egress traffic reviewed. Game-specific profiles can also be applied, to further optimise the protection. In case of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, players are not aware of anything!
The ultimate gaming experience
Our Game servers have up to 1Gbit/s bandwidth, to process traffic without compromising service availability. With datacentres based across the globe, you can rent servers closest to where your gamers are based, for the lowest latency possible. It is a perfect solution for professional resellers and software publisher, with optimal performance at an affordable price.
Raw power for gaming
The latest generation of AMD Ryzen processors is based on Zen 3 architecture. It brings important changes, which result in better performance. We provide you with the full power of these processors, thanks to liquid cooling (watercooling) ensuring optimal efficiency. With this new generation of Ryzen processors, you gain up to 26% more performance than with the previous versions (3000 series).
IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range. As an option, you can rent additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
Anti-DDoS Game Protection
The video game and e-sports sector is one of the most popular targets for DDoS attacks. As a result, it is essential for hosting platforms to be able to mitigate these frequent and massive threats. This is why we have developed specific anti-DDoS protection for this activity.

Why choose a Game server to host video games?
Game dedicated servers focus on performance. They are equipped with AMD Ryzen processors - based on the Zen 3 architecture - which offer the best performance on the market. These configurations are mainly aimed at video game designers and hosting providers of streaming platforms. They are designed to handle parallel tasks, image and video processing, as well as hosting online games. The many features included, including our Anti-DDoS Game, make this range the best solution for delivering a unique gaming experience.
What do the setup fees consist of?
The setup fees cover the cost of assembling and connecting your server in our datacentres. The initial fees are only billed once, when the service is set up. This means they are not linked to your commitment period.
The installation costs of your dedicated server are free of charge for any commitment of a minimum of 12 months.

The options are available at the server configuration step. You can also order and enable options directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel, after your service has been delivered.
