Since we strictly emphasize quality and the best performance, we only use state-of-the-art server technology from established manufacturers for our Virtual Cloud Servers. Moreover, we put the hardware through periodic quality tests, so that we can see if it meets our demands.

For our cloud Server offers we use systems that have been individually developed for us by the German server specialist Pyramid Computer.

Facts about the servers:

  • Pyramid Optigon 3280 Mainframe-Server
  • Intel® Xeon® CPUs with 3,000 MHz, 2 MB Cache and 800 MHz FSB
  • 16,384 MB DDR3-RAM ECC
  • 1,000 GB SCSI hard disk capacity, 15,000 rpm in Hardware RAID 5
  • 20 - 100 customers per server (depending on the Cloud Server product)


  • The powerful HOSTSAFE PowerFeatures let you profit from many handy tools without any additional cost. They make the daily work with your server still easier, faster and safer.

  • That many features can only be found at HOSTSAFE!

  •   PowerPanel

    An easy-to-use and powerful control panel that makes site administration as easy as point-and-click.

  •   PowerReboot

    In our customer interface you can order a reboot of your Virtual Cloud Server anytime. If this should not achieve the desired success, however, you can make use of our PowerRestore.

  •   PowerRestore

    If your Virtual Cloud Server is not available anymore, you can order a reinstallation anytime in the customer interface. The default settings of your Virtual Cloud Server will then be restored instantly.

  •   PowerBackup

    With PowerBackup you can secure the data on your server just by pressing a button.

  •   PowerRescue

    Even when everything else fails: with PowerRescue you can access your server anytime by means of an emergency system and repair it.

  •   PowerStatus

    Always informed: with PowerStatus you can always have a look at the status of your server and the host system.

  •   PowerUpgrade

    Switch without problems: you can switch to another Virtual Cloud Server product immediately.

  •   PowerFirewall

    We focus on security. That is why we install a firewall for every Virtual Cloud Server, which you can manage conveniently over the web interface.

  •   PremiumPerformance

    Although we setup up to 100 Virtual Cloud Servers on one physical server, each Virtual Cloud Server can use the server's whole free capacity anytime. Because the most server applications do not constantly need that much performance, you can often dispose of remarkably more performance than your calculated share of 1% of the server capacity.
