More Information

Powerful Server Infrastructure

A rack server, also called a rack-mounted server, is a computer bare metal to use as a server and designed to be installed in a framework called a rack. The rack contains multiple mounting slots called bays, each designed to hold a hardware unit secured in place with screws. A rack server has a low-profile enclosure, in contrast to a tower server, which is built into an upright, standalone cabinet.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to setup my bare metal server?

We can begin setup of your bare metal server once you have made payment for the first month. Depending on your requirements the server should be ready to use within 24 hours.

Do you monitor my Bare Metal Server?

Yes, we do basic monitoring of the server to ensure uptime. Should the server become unresponsive to ping or if the RAID array fails, we will notify you via email and SmS prior to taking action.

What are your DNS nameservers?

The following nameservers can be used for outbound DNS resolution by hosts on our network:
nscache1.vpscity.co.nz (
nscache2.vpscity.co.nz (

When can I get access to my bare metal server?

All aspects of our bare metal servers are taken care of by our inhouse engineers so there is no need for physical access, however you can access your bare metal server 24x7 remotely via SSH or RDP, alternatively you can call NZ: 09 281 4025 should you need any furthur assistance.

Are bare metal game servers allowed?

Due to the nature of game servers and the unfortunate ability they have to attract DoS attacks, we unfortunately do not allow them on our network. We provide a predominant corporate network with many businesses running services and can not afford the disruption that DoS attacks bring due to gaming servers.
