I tried to register and purchase VPS service for company. Crashed over and over, stuck on "edit names" and assigning groups every time, then straight to error 500 without any success. Time to find a better service and signed up for Digital Ocean within a minute

Inexpensive but takes some config

After looking for a less expensive alternative to my previous VPS hosting provider, i decided to give OVH a try. Signing up took a little extra time. For some reason i was unable to use my regular bank card with visa on OVH. So i ...Read Morehad to go the Paypal method which takes quite a few hours to authorize on OVH.

Once i was set up and running i found everything to be quite easy and very smooth. I setup what i needed to and just let the VPS slip to the back of my mind. A day or so later and i started to notice some very heavy lag spikes to my services hosted on the vps. After trying to lock down the cause, and many many bad words later, i realized the IP was getting hit from every direction looking for ways in and such. I then realize i needed to enable and configure the firewall via the OVH control panel. Denied all connections first and then filtered down to just what i needed. In about 10 minutes or so everything seemed to go back to normal, and so far so good.

So make sure if you do sign up with OVH to get your security down up front before you start being attacked endlessly. The auth.log was rather full of failed connections. I also disabled the ubuntu root user, which OVH enables by default. Most other providers leave ubuntu more standard, and have full firewall enabled all by default. OVH just gives you a full access root ubuntu install and lets it loose.

Very Inexpensive VPS

I decided to give OVH a chance because I need a VPS server and didn't want to pay too much. I was worried that with the low price, it wouldn't be too reliable, but I was wrong. I'm happy to say I haven't had any real issues since ...Read MoreI signed up with them.

I sent in a support ticket to get some help with something and it took them almost an hour to get back to me. This isn't terrible, but I would have liked a quicker acknowledgement of my issue, even if it took a bit to actually fix.

I've been with OVH for a little over a year now and have been very happy with them. I decided to write this review after an unfortunate event. Due to an error on my part (I accidently deleted several critical portions of my databa...Read Morese) my site was completely lost. I opened a ticket with the OVH support team and in well under an hour I was back up and running like it never happened.

Other than my own mistakes, I've never had any noticeable downtime or other issues so I'm very happy with them. The one complaint is when I first signed up their site was not very easy to use. it took me a little bit to find what I needed. Not a big deal, but they should really reorganize it.

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
