Mam blog https://blog.watigraf.pl na hostingu OVH i działa bez zarzutu. Przez 12 lat zaobserwowałem ze 4 problemy z połączeniem bazy MySQL nawet wtedy kiedy był słynny pożar w serwerowni OVH. Mimo to ...Read Moreusługa szybko wracała i żdanych danych nie straciłem. Akurat mam wykupiony najniższy pakiet bo wyższy mi nie potrzebny ponieważ wydajność jest wystarczająca dla mnie. Wyższe pakiety będą lepsze, ale póki co siedzę na niższym. Panel jest prosty w obsłuszę, szybko można wyklikać np. przywrócenie kopii hostingu czy bazy danych. Stworzenie skrzynki pocztowej czy operowanie domenami też jest proste. Ma automatycznie odnawialny darmowy SSL. Nie jestem w stanie nic się przyczepić, ale support faktycznie mozolnie odpowiada jednak pisałem do nich tylko kilka razy przez 12 lat więc problem umiarkowany.
Polecam swoim klientom i wykupuje im hostingi w OVH i wszystko działa OK.

I encountered error to reinstall OS with the only tool they provide to reinstall OS, so I contacted them for help. They changed my server's raid settings, and wiped all my data without my permission and replied me I deserve for da...Read Moreta lost because I did not backup my data. I told them the backup was in the third hardisk that was wiped by them, and asked them to fix the OS installation error so that I can reinstall OS. Since then, they keep resending me the steps to setup raid which is irrelevant, and told me they do not provide managed service, put me in a epic nightmare. I cursed them because I'm mad and requested email address of their management to file a complaint, they denied it and get a person with title "Customer Service Supervisor" come to my support ticket and threatening will close my account. They're a big bully that you should avoid in all cost, unless you're dreaming that you will never have any issues with that bully.Less

I had IP issues and tried to explain GEO -> IP and politely requested another IP that wouldn't cause me to lose my gmail account and the rep blew up in my face with pseudo facts on geolocation. He was quite rude, pretty much te...Read Morelling me that I had no idea what I was talking about. 10 years of backend geolocation coding would disagree. I would never use them again since there are much better alternatives out there. Even if they had been right the was no need for that rudeness. If you want to use them and don't need support go for it. I didn't have issues with the servers for the 2 days that I used them. Only issues was support and then that they do not have auto billing.Less

There are some bad experience with ovh:Some month ago I bought a dedicated server on So You Start (OVH) with xenserver. I work for a lot of month with them, but the last day, only a few days after paying the month, the OVH system ...Read Moredetects a small ddos attack (1 mbps) start from my server, probably from a windows VM, and OVH block immediatly the server. I tried to explain that no one caused the attack and the VM was new and with antivirus. Nothing. I lost the money for the new month, for the IP of failover and also the work of these months that means that I have basically wasted money also in previous months.Other thing: the last month, always with the same server, I received a ddos attack from outside and xenserver has rebooted. And the super ddos protection? The OVH system merely send me an email saying that there was an attack ddos and that has been blocked. I asked from ticket why the ddos protection has not done its job and my server is however restarted forcing shutdown of the VM. The support team asked me to send an email to an internal group, but I never received an answer.Well presented with good products at low cost and many services, but they are criminals. Once you have paid do not care about you and try to steal more money.Less

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.

Features

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.

Support

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.

Summary

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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

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