Contact us with your exact requiremetns for a custom offer and order link!
  • Contact us to ask for plan order links or you need custom hardware . Before ordering, estimate the length of your project: due to setup costs involved, a longer billing interval (minimum contract duration) means lower price per month.
  • Onboarding: Dedicated setups are usually required for projects that need lots of resources or certain hosting location. Most projects can be built on a turnkey plan and moved at runtime. Dedicated setups involve bigger setup time and effort and are reserved for clients that have been with us for at least 1 month (on turnkey plans). In most situations, turnkey setups are more efficient including for scaling.
    Setting up advance services requires multiple steps in addition to standard turnkey server deployment.
    As contracting, provisioning, installing, configuring a new server takes time (around 1 week) quick onboarding can be done in 2 stages: for fast deployment resources/services can provided on an already setup machine that can be used right away to deploy/move site(s). Site(s) can be automatically moved to different server when ready and all services are configured and functional.

  • After ordering you can specify in a ticket the SoftRaid preference for using or space or replicating disks (default, recommended: SoftRaid1 for first 2 disks ).

  • * Unlimited bandwidth is available . For guaranteed connection speed of of 500Mbps that go up to 150Tb/month.
    Guaranteed connection is mainly for server reliability and performance reasons: when calculating server capacity and necessary number of servers for an event, this should be taken into account.

  • If you calculate cost per Gb for this streaming server, it is under ~0.003$/Gb which is at least 30 times less compared to most rtmp streaming providers (including Cloud) where 1 Gb is at least ~0.1$ . So even if you're using only 10% of allocated bandwidth per month for your solution, it's 3 times cheaper than most cloud streaming providers.

  • Simultaneous user capacity is better compared to VPS and clould provider instances that usually share a connection (similar to VPS, multiple cloud instances share a 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps conection).

  • Softraid 1/0 : Servers with Softraid can be used to replicate content (Softraid 1) for read performance and redudancy in case a disk fails or for performance (Softraid 0) to stripe content on 2 disks for faster reading/writing. We recommend Softraid 1 to prevent downtime and complete loss of data that can be caused by a disk failure.
    On servers with 3 disks, 2 will are usually setup with Softraid 1 and 3rd disks is used for setting up backups or keeping less important content/sites.

  • IPs: We provide all dedicated servers with 2 IPs: 1 for host and first nameserver, 1 for secondary nameserver and website. More can be added for extra $3/month.

  • Delivery Time: Contracting formalities, setup takes some time and need to be scheduled with the data center. Installing streaming and conversion software also takes some time. It can take about a week or more after order processing to get everything up and running.

  • Trial - How to evaluate performance: Our demos and shared plans are hosted on similar servers, so you can evaluate these before ordering a dedicated server. For servers in specific locations contact us and we'll provide testing links if such server is available.

  • SSH root access is NOT provided for servers using our Wowza Streaming Engine license key. If you need SSH, get the Red5 server variant and provide your own Wowza license key if you need Wowza.
    SSH root access can be provided if client assumes full responsibility for using it. Unexperienced or malicious administrators with such access can compromise server by permitting installation of exploits or making it completely unusable. Recovery in such situations is not possible and our administrators can only wipe out everything and reinstall OS from scratch (one reinstall per billing cycle is included).
    We recommend the benefits of the included managed service and letting the experienced administrators handle the server management.

  • RTMP server is managed : Our administrators setup your rtmp applications and restarts the rtmp server as needed so you don't need to pay an administrator for the linux servers.

  • Subscriptions are billed automatically until cancelled (same plan is renewed at end of billing interval). Subscriptions can be cancelled anytime from the billing processor to stop renewal. If you want to terminate your plan make sure you cancel subscription before billing date because already contracted and allocated server resources will not be refunded.
  • Location: S servers are in US and C servers in Canada (also North America) and on request in Europe. Location Options: North America (Canada, Beauharnois), Europe (North Frankfurt, East Gravelines, Central Strasbourg/Warsaw, West London).
    Usually fastest available datacenter is used but on request list of locations for each type can be provided.

  • Copyright Policy: Hosting copyrighted content without permission is not allowed on any of the servers we provide. Any reported copyrighted content held without permission needs to be removed to keep services active.
    Handling of copyright related complains is different depending on datacenter location. While for S servers US DMCA applies (server is suspended until content removal), for C servers procedure is less restrictive (only the reported IP is blocked until removal of content and other IPs can be temporary used during cleanup).
    Suggestions: Have a system in place on site for handling of copyright claims, review new site contents, don't use trademarks or popular copyrighted content names especially on public site pages (outside member area) as these often trigger bots and search engines looking for such content.


  • Softaculous can be licensed for $24/year to allow easy web installation for popular free turnkey scripts.


  • Contact us for details on ordering these plans. We can also provide advice and offers for higher requirements.
    These hosting services do not include free software license; these must be ordered separately.
  • Also see RTMP Hosting for a list of rtmp hosting options and HostRTMP for remote rtmp hosting.

What is Wowza Streaming Engine?

Wowza Streaming Engine is the unified server software developed by Wowza Media Systems.

The server is used for streaming of live and on-demand video, audio, and RIAs (rich Internet applications) over public and private IP networks to desktop, laptop, and tablet computers, mobile devices, IPTV set-top boxes, internet-connected TV sets, and other network-connected devices.

Wowza Media Server can stream to multiple types of playback clients and devices simultaneously, including the Adobe Flash player, Microsoft Silverlight player, Apple QuickTime Player and iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch), 3GPP mobile phones (Android, BlackBerry OS, Symbian, etc.), IPTV set-top boxes (Amino, Enseo, Roku, Streamit and others) and game consoles such as Wii and PS3.

Wowza Media Server is compatible with all streaming protocols: RTMP, RTMPE, RTMPS, RTMPTE, HDS, HLS, MPEG-DASH, RTSP, RTP, Smooth Streaming, MPEG2, MPEG-TS, and ICY (SHOUTcast / Icecast). The server can also ingest video and audio via Wowza GoCoder? mobile application.

What is RTMP?

Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Adobe Systems for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet, between a Flash player and a server.
The raw TCP-based RTMP maintains a single persistent connection and allows real-time communication. To guarantee smooth delivery of video and audio streams, while still maintaining the ability to transmit bigger chunks of information, the protocol may split video and data into fragments.

The RTMP defines several channels on which packets may be sent/received, and which operate independently of each other. For example, there is a channel dedicated for handling RPC requests and responses, a channel for video stream data, a channel for audio stream data, a channel for out-of-band control messages (fragment size negotiation, etc.), and so on. During a typical RTMP session, several channels may be active simultaneously at any given time.
