Its really dangerous to buy service with OVH. This is the worst hosting we ever use in Internet. Impossible even to get access to domain we purchased. Impossible to reach them, they never answer and their chat system is just a stupid machine. Run away!

Unreliable administration tools and deplorable help desk

Service used: Shared
I've been using many of their services for years : shared web hosting, Plesk reseller offer and VPS. When trouble occurs, actually quite often, it's your fault until you demonstrate the opposite. Even I'm a native french speaker a...Read More

Why do people even bother complaining about support issues? Fix it your self, or wait for them to respond eventually. Very simple. I would not expect great support from a company UNLESS you are paying out of the nose for it.

Expert Overview

Modern & Innovative Hosting

OVH is based in Canada, but they have data centers throughout the world.  The company actually designs and manages their own data centers, which is quite unique for a hosting company.  They also have innovative network connections, security and other benefits that will help ensure a positive overall hosting experience.

They are focused on offering environmentally friendly data centers that are certified by organizations around the world.  This helps them to build confidence with their customers, and it has been very successful.  They say that 155 out of the largest 1000 European companies have their sites hosted in OVH facilities, which is really impressive.  Overall, this is a great company with  modern facilities that is constantly innovating.

Uptime & Reliability

Excellent 99.99% Uptime Guarantee

They offer a 99.99% uptime guarantee with a less than 5 minute response time guarantee in the event of a hardware failure.  This should give customers the confidence they need to know that their site will be up at all times.  The added guarantee of the 5 minute response time is nice because it shows that they are planning for those times when the unexpected happens.

The fact that the company uses RAID 10 configuration for their hard disks is also going to help keep sites up and stable.  Of course, this company designs their own world class data centers with redundant power, network and cooling systems so the facility itself will help to avoid any large scale outages.


Quality Features

OVH has many great features.  Their lowest hosting level is a regular or cloud based VPS solution.  It is priced in line with most companies shared hosting options, but you'll have the added power of the VPS, which is nice.  The cloud VPS is slightly more expensive, but still a good deal.  There are several options within each category so you can get exactly what you need without paying extra.

They guarantee CPU power, starting with 2 vCores at the entry level and moving up to 8 for the highest level VPS.  You'll also get guaranteed RAM availability starting with 2 gigs and moving up to 16.  The hard disk space is also very generous ranging from 25 to 200 gigs, all of which are in a RAID 10 configuration for added stability.

One really nice feature is that you can upgrade your hardware specs at any time without having to do any server transfers or things like that.  This helps to keep your website up and running while still giving you plenty of room to grow.


Good Tech Support

Their technical support is on site in their data centers and ready to help you when you need it.  The fact that they have a 5 minute response time for failed hardware is an example of the benefits of this company.  They are also skilled with what they do so they can answer any questions you have or provide help when you need it. They also have a forum and blog to help with ensuring you have the best possible hosting experience.


Very Nice Hosting Option

This company provides their customers with everything they will need to host any type of site that they want.  There are a lot of different options so you can be sure to get exactly what you need.  Most people are going to be very happy with the level of service they are given with OVH.


  • Great data centers
  • 99.99% uptime guarantee (plus 5 minute response time guarantee)
  • Fair prices


  • No shared hosting options
  • So many choices may be confusing to customers without hosting experience
