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.

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.
