A dedicated environment
You are free to configure your server with your choice of operating system and application. This server environment is allocated to you, to meet your web project’s requirements — and you can add hardware resources at any time, giving you ultimate flexibility.
A scalable server
As your requirements increase, your VPS can scale up with it. You can increase your resources at any time by upgrading to a higher model — and you can do this in just a few clicks via the OVHcloud Control Panel. This way, you have full control over your budget.
Simplicity and independence
With a VPS, you can focus on your core business — and you have full control of your server, without the need to worry about hardware constraints. You can also choose from a number of Linux distributions, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS and Debian.
There are no hidden costs, and both ingress and egress traffic are unlimited*. You can host your test environment on a Starter VPS, with 100Mbit/s bandwidth. This way, you get a low-cost VPS with no hidden costs.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
With our backup options, you can ensure integrity for the data you host on your virtual private server. You can use an external backup space, or create snapshots of your machine directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
We have a network of datacentres across the globe, so you can choose which datacentre you want your VPS to be hosted in. By hosting it as closely as possible to your users, you can minimise latency and ensure stable service, with hardware availability guaranteed by a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
What is a VPS?
A VPS is a virtual private server, which offers a fully-configurable environment. Unlike shared hosting, the data is isolated onto a virtual machine with dedicated resources. It offers the benefits of both a web hosting plan and a physical server, combining the stability and high performance of a private environment with the simplicity of managed hardware.
Why opt for a low-cost VPS?
Low-cost VPS solutions from the Starter range are equipped with an SSD disk, and are specially designed to provide pre-production and test environments at an affordable price.
How do I get started with a VPS?
Want to get your project off the ground? Take a look at our guide on getting started with a VPS. You can choose from a wide range of operating systems, including Linux and Windows (excluding the Starter model), and you can also install a content management system (CMS) like WordPress.
What is the difference between a VPS and a web hosting plan?
Unlike a web hosting plan, a VPS provides you with a dedicated hosting space, with full control over how you manage your environment. Once you have selected an operating system, you can customise the configuration to suit your project. A VPS is perfect if your project requires a very specific type of configuration, or if you are looking to carry out tests.
What is the advantage of using a VPS?
With a VPS, you get full admin access to your environment, and you can also select the exact resources you need for your project to work properly. This means you only pay for what you use, and you can always add more resources whenever you need to do so.
Need more performance?
Want to host your website using WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, or PrestaShop? Or perhaps you want to set up a web hosting control panel like cPanel or Plesk? Explore our Elite models, which offer up to 640GB disk space, 32GB RAM and 8 vCores. They are fully-customisable, and offer 2 Gbit/s bandwidth.
