Your questions answered
What is a WordPress VPS?
A virtual private server, otherwise known as a VPS, is a virtual machine. It gives you an environment with dedicated resources for your website and business application projects. The RAM and CPU capacities of our VPS platforms make them particularly well-adapted to hosting websites that are built using WordPress. You can adapt them to fit growing needs for your web projects by adding resources via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
How do I install WordPress on a VPS?
WordPress is quick and easy to install on a VPS. During the order process, simply tick “Linux distribution with application”, then select “WordPress” as a language option. If you experience any difficulties setting up your server, we recommend referring to our guide on getting started with a VPS.
What is the best hosting plan for a WordPress website?
If you have technical knowledge of server administration, a WordPress VPS will be the best option for you, as it gives you full control over your virtual machine. You can quickly and easily increase your allocated resources via the OVHcloud Control Panel, and your website will experience minimal latency with high availability.
What are the advantages of using a VPS to host a WordPress website?
With our virtual machines, you get high performance to host your WordPress website. Because of their RAM, CPU, storage capacity and scalability, you can manage traffic spikes and adapt your VPS to suit your needs.
Does a VPS platform offer optimal speed for a WordPress website?
With a dedicated environment and allocated resources, your WordPress website would have higher performance statistics compared to a basic web hosting plan. Our WordPress VPS solutions can only be hosted in one of our datacentres - in France and in the rest of Europe. Choose a location closest to your customers in order to minimise latency, offering an optimal browsing experience. Our physical servers are also equipped with next generation components, and RAM that offers quick access to your website or application.
What are the differences between a VPS and shared hosting?
The best hosting solution for you will depend on both your requirements, and your technical skill level. OVHcloud web hosting plans are designed for people who do not have any knowledge or experience with server configuration. It is a turn-key solution, but it has shared resources — i.e. resources shared between several users. A VPS offers a dedicated environment with dedicated resources, but requires technical knowledge of server administration and management. It is fully configurable, and is delivered with a number of different operating systems — so you can create and manage your web hosting platform to suit your needs.
