Temporarily upgrade your Performance hosting plan, at a low cost

With the Boost option, you can increase your web hosting plan by one level without paying for an additional 12-month subscription.

An OVHcloud web hosting plan guarantees your website’s availability throughout the year. However, you may sometimes need to add more resources for your website, so that it can handle high and sudden influxes of traffic. To do this, you can choose the Boost option available with OVHcloud Performance Web Hosting plans. This means you can avoid ordering an annual subscription that will cost you more, and simply use the additional resources for as long as you need. With the Boost option, you can boost website resources in the event of traffic spikes, and only pay for what you need. This means you only pay for a higher-level hosting plan when you need the resources for it.

How OVHcloud Performance hosting works

We offer four plans for website hosting (Performance 1, 2, 3 and 4), and they are adapted to suit your needs. You can opt for one of these plans, depending on the level of resources you need to ensure that your e-commerce or editorial websites work properly. If you have multiple websites, you can even host them all on the same plan, without paying a single penny more. Performance web hosting plans come with a one-year commitment, with payments taken on a monthly basis.

How the Boost option works

By choosing the Boost option, you can upgrade your current Performance Web Hosting plan from level 1, 2 or 3 to the next level, without needing to commit to the higher plan. You keep your regular subscription and only pay extra on the days you enable this solution — so you only pay for what you need. By controlling your costs, you can then invest further in other aspects of your business. To use the Boost option, go to the OVHcloud Control Panel. You can decide when to enable or disable this option depending on your peak sales are, or when your website experiences traffic spikes. If you are looking at how to boost website traffic, this option offers a great deal of flexibility in how you use your web hosting plan. Anticipate periods of high traffic (sales, Christmas parties, Black Friday, latest news, etc.) and temporarily boost website resources for your current solution.
