Get started with your first server
Dedicated servers in the Rise range are the most affordable bare-metal servers offered by OVHcloud, 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 OVHcloud 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
No hidden costs
When planning your project with OVHcloud, there are no hidden or complicated costs to evaluate. All OVHcloud 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 OVHcloud 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 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).
To guarantee maximum security for your infrastructures, an anti-DDoS system is included with all OVHcloud dedicated servers. It ensures service continuity for your applications, in the event of an attack.
Service Level Agreement - 99.90%
All of the servers in this range have a 99.90% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
500GB of backup space
Each dedicated server comes with a 500GB storage space, dedicated to backups. This space is completely separate from the server, and is designed for you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
Host a website, blog or forum on a Rise dedicated server for low latency and a high load capacity.
Share your files, photos and videos internally with your employees, or externally with your customers.
In just a few minutes, you can deploy your critical business applications, with 100% of your server’s resources dedicated solely to you, for reliable and consistent performance.
Your questions answered
💰 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 setup fees for your dedicated server are included for any commitment periods of 12 months or longer.
📝 When can I order the options offered?
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.
How do I create a basic web server?
Choice of distribution
To get started using your dedicated server, you need to install an OS. OVHcloud 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.
