Would you like the flexibility of virtualisation but with completely dedicated Hardware? Wouldn't it be great if there was something that could give you the power and flexibility you needed?
This is where 123-reg Dedicated Cloud Servers come in. We have combined a dedicated server with virtualisation technology to create a unique hosting experience that delivers both the power of dedicated hardware and the flexibility of virtualisation.
We have taken a dedicated server and put a virtual layer between the hardware and OS to create a self-contained hosting environment. What this means, is cloning or migrating your container is easy and moving your container to new hardware will take minutes instead of hours. This gives you superior flexibility when compared to classic dedicated servers and the power to undertake even the most hardware intensive tasks.
Host multiple high performance websites
Our Dedicated Cloud hosting enables you to host multiple high performance websites with high user volumes on a single server and fully utilise the 500 Mbps internet connection!
Install your own OS
Install your own OS and secure it with any security software you need (even those which modify the kernel of your OS).
Run demanding applications
Host high performance databases for your data warehouse or intensive data analysis software on a dedicated cloud server. You can even use it as a rendering and calculation engine for your graphical or mathematical applications.
Outsource demanding enterprise software to your dedicated cloud servers in order to save money on local servers (like ERP or CRM systems) or use them as an online backup destination for your mobile workers or on-premise servers.
Get high performance web hosting packages with super-fast speeds without the headache of managing your own server.

It's the natural evolution of a Dedicated Server. Taking the best aspects of virtualised and dedicated technology they provide a dedicated server that adds a virtual layer in-between the hardware and software. What this effectively means is Dedicated Cloud servers can benefit from the power and performance of dedicated hardware while benefiting from the flexibility of a virtual environment.
You can use them in the same way as regular dedicated servers. This includes hosting for single or multiple domain names and email. They could be used as application, database, file, mail, name or web servers or any other type of servers that requires internet access. The raw power of Dedicated Cloud servers allows you to undertake even demanding applications and tasks with ease.
No! The management software Plesk simplifies the process of managing your dedicated servers. The easy to use interface is intuitive and means you do not need to have expert knowledge of server administration. What's more, we provide you with step-by-step user guides and videos to help you along the way.

No. Sorry, but every provider is different, and that makes it hard for us to provide a transfer service. However, our Dedicated Cloud hosting packages do use technology that is considered standard, so there's a very good chance your website or server configuration will be compatible with our dedicated hosting packages.
Dedicated Cloud servers use completely dedicated hardware in the same way dedicated servers do. They also utilise virtualisation technology like VPS do to create a flexible environment. The performance vastly exceeds that of a VPS as many users share the same server with a VPS and as such share resources. With dedicated hosting all resources are dedicated to you, there is no need to share so performance is optimised for your needs.
Parallels Bare Metal is the cloud-ready virtualisation solution we use for our Dedicated Cloud Server platform. It is software that allows multiple Cloud Servers to run simultaneously on the same physical server. We only run one Dedicated Cloud Server on each physical server.

You can buy a cloud dedicated hosting package on either a monthly or annual basis, just like with VPS or dedicated package. This gives you the freedom to control your own contract period.
If you decide the package you've bought isn't right for you, give us a call within the first 7 working days. We'll refund what you paid - excluding the cost of registering any domain names you have, because domains can't be "unregistered" once you've chosen them.
