Scalable on demand

Flexible usage

Spin it up and take it back down when you’re done with it. With a Bare Metal Server you only pay for resources you use.

24/7 Support

Spin up a server in 8 minutes

Traditional dedicated servers can take hours to spin up, but a Bare Metal Server can be ready to use in under eight minutes.

UK data centres

UK data centres & UK support

Our dedicated expert UK support teams are available to help you 24/7.

Integrated load balancing

Intelligent load balancers spread the resources around your server infrastructure to optimise performance.

UK data centres

Powerful & secure

The security and high-performance of physical servers, with the latest hardware and a range of enterprise components.

Cloud Servers

Pay as you use

With a Bare Metal Server you can see and control usage for the current month, down to the minute with no upfront costs or contracts. Start, stop and pause your Bare Metal Server at any time, and with ongoing cost estimates you can see a summary of the total amount payable on the last day of the month.

Dedicated Runtime

Dedicated to you

The resources on your Bare Metal Servers are dedicated to you, and you alone. This ensures high-performance at all times, but you can add more resources if you need to by upgrading to a more powerful model.

Cloud Servers

Works in combination with virtual machines

If you already have a cluster of virtual machines it’s easy to link your Bare Metal Server to your VM and have them work together. Spin up a Bare Metal Server to take some of the heavy processing load away from your VM and shut down the server when you’re finished. Or store critical data on a Bare Metal Server and have frontend, load-balanced virtual machines split the processing load.

Cloud Servers

Fast performance with SSDs

Solid-state disks offer high performance speeds even over the heaviest of workloads. SSDs have higher input/output rates than hard-disk drives which means faster processing times for your server. Because SSDs don’t have moving parts they offer more stability than hard-disk drives.

Cloud Servers

Control from anywhere

Take control of your Bare Metal Server remotely from anywhere in the world through VNC console. It's easy to connect to your server from a desktop to perform server health checks, administration tasks and maintenance activities.

Try our cloud control panel now

Manage your entire cloud infrastructure from a single intuitive control panel. Create the Bare Metal Server you need, whenever you need it, with the ability to deploy and scale your virtual machines at any time. With no contract, there's nothing to stop you getting started right now.

Frequently asked questions

Questions about Bare Metal Servers? Our FAQs provide answers to the most common queries. You can also contact our expert support team at any time.

What is a Bare Metal Server?

Bare Metal Servers give you full power and total control over your server infrastructure. Built on the latest technology, with enterprise-grade hardware, Bare Metal Servers give your projects the highest levels of performance. Pick from the latest Intel processors and choose the resource levels for your project's demands, and with root access you have free choice of the latest Windows or Linux operating systems.

How do I use Bare Metal Server?

A Bare Metal Server is just like having your own server in an office server room or data centre. You can easily log in as an administrator and install your applications and manage resources. If you just want to be able to get going quickly with standard functions like hosting websites or email then add a server management tool like Plesk or cPanel.

Which Bare Metal Server should I choose?

If your projects are more resource-demanding, then choose a Bare Metal Server with higher levels of RAM, and a more powerful processor. For short-term power, choose a pay-as-you-use server with hourly billing.

How quickly will my Bare Metal Server be ready to use?

Fasthosts Bare Metal Servers are provisioned and ready to use in under 8 minutes.

How is payment made?

Payment is made monthly, at either a set price in a fixed-term contract, or calculated on by-the-hour usage. If you choose hourly billing, you can log in to your control panel and see usage forecasts and cost predictions before your next invoice.

What is the difference between a Bare Metal Server and a cloud server?

Cloud servers and virtual machines share the computing power between multiple cores but with Bare Metal Servers all of the resources are dedicated to you alone.
