Take full control of the exact machine you want

An entire machine devoted to you. Dedicated Servers are the highest-performing and most private hardware that we offer.

Ultimate power

Need power? Your server can be configured with eye-watering specs that make performance concerns a long forgotten memory.

Any OS you like

Choose Linux or Windows out of the box, or install something completely custom. The server is yours after all, so go right ahead.

Root & IPMI access

Unmanaged Dedicated Servers come with full root and IPMI access. Set your server up your way, then customise to your heart's content.

24/7 Management

For most servers we highly recommend Managed Services. We monitor your server and respond to issues 24/7, so you don't have to.

Plans and Pricing

Choose a pre-configured plan, or if you have something more in mind talk with us about customising your own server.

Customers love SiteHost

Joining SiteHost makes it easier to develop great websites and apps.

When we're hunting around for hosting one of our primary things is support. That's always been key. I've hosted with a lot of American companies, and their support is either next to none, non-existent, or handed off to a call centre that's really not well connected to the company at all. So from my point of view, it's peace of mind.

As we grew we were self-hosting some services which are now hosted by you (and others). Having someone else feeding and watering the servers is one less maintenance task we no longer need worry about.

A quick overview

Dedicated Servers are a great choice if you're not here to compromise on performance or security. Take control of some serious bare metal.

How Dedicated Servers work

We custom build your very own server to your specifications then install it in one of our datacentres. Your server is completely private and can be set up exactly how you want.

What Dedicated Servers suit

Dedicated Servers are great if you require more resources than our virtual platforms offer. They also suit projects that require strict privacy, security or data sovereignty.

Longer contracts save money

There's a minimum 12 month contract. If you'll be running your server for more than a year, consider a 24 or 36 month term. The longer the contract, the lower your monthly price tag.

Common Questions

This is something we discuss on case by case basis with each customer, but as a general rule of thumb if you are upgrading to a larger server with increased spend there's no penalty for exiting the contract early. You would however be required to sign a new contract with a new term.
24/7 Management is a highly recommended optional extra, especially if your server will be hosting critical applications or websites where uptime is important. Problems arise, downtime happens, and you always have something else to be doing rather than worrying about infrastructure. Who would respond at 3am if there's an urgent problem, especially if you don't have your own dedicated system engineers? With 24/7 Management, you know the answer.
Virtual Server (VPS) has the lowest cost and is the only option with no contract term. They offer fewer resources, some of which are shared between multiple VPSs. A Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) costs more, because you get more. It has dedicated resources and hardware (like drives) while still being virtualised. This means you get a huge amount of resources without having to pay for all the hardware and associated costs yourself. Finally there are Dedicated Servers which are entire machines for your exclusive use. These offer the most power and are the only option that gives you a whole physical server to yourself. This can make them more expensive and less fault tolerant than virtual offerings.
