A dedicated server can’t be managed as easy as a virtual server. A virtual server is able to start quickly because it is part of a physical system.
Dedicated servers have to support special motherboard-commands so they can get remotely started. Not every motherboard of our dedicated servers are supporting this. That’s why you shouldn’t shut down a dedicated server at all. We may have to send a technician to start the server manually. This can take some time.
If you have shut down your server by accident – feel free to contact our support.
