If you need to have full control of your own dedicated server hardware and need to know that computing power will be there when you need it, then you need one of our Dedicated Servers. The Bronze servers are our entry level range of servers but suitable for most purposes, as such you can configure many options to customise your Bronze Dedicated Server to meet your own requirements.
Whether you need a Dedicated Server with Microsoft Windows Server (2012 or 2016) or a Linux Server Distribution we have it covered. All servers are hosted in our UK Data Centre, in Sheffield and our own experienced staff provide hardware support, so when you need help you are speaking directly with our own people, in our own data centre.
Dedicated Servers combine all of the following into a single monthly rental payment:
- Hardware Ownership
- Hardware Maintenance
Our dedicated servers have great performance and reliability because we don’t cut corners. We start with a HP server with dual power supplies, Western Digital Red Disks, HP or Samsung Memory. Nobody likes unreliable servers, especially the guys who have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to fixed them. We do everything we can to build reliable servers in the first place.

Each Dedicated Server will receive a routed block of IP addresses, this is the most secure way of allocating IP addresses, as IP addresses cannot be accidentally used by others. Each block has a total number of addresses and a usable number of addresses. The usable number is always (on our networks) three less than the overall number of addresses.
If you require more than 64 IP addresses a justification would need to be made to RIPE, we can assist you with the justification and complete the required paperwork, please get in touch to discuss your requirements further.
