Our Linux VPS solutions are designed to suit all needs, and scale up with user activity. They do not require an advance supply of resources. You can add new ones if necessary, directly from the Control Panel. This adaptability allows you to manage your budget.
Our virtual servers are optimised by our teams, and offer excellent services. These virtual private servers are based on next-generation Intel architectures, NVMe SSD studies and resilient infrastructures.
A dedicated environment
The physical resources of the VPS are fully allocated to the user. These machines also offer administrator access to host production environments and business applications. This way, you can have a space to manage your web projects in a server environment that is adapted to your usage.
Simplicity and independence
One of the advantages of our virtual private servers is the autonomy offered to the user, in the first place the freedom to install and configure their operating system by choosing from a wide range of options. Furthermore, to work more easily with your projects, you can install management interfaces like Plesk or Panel.
VPS Italy has unlimited traffic*, and the maximum bandwidth is 2Gbit/s. These features allow you to host services or applications that require high throughput by meeting specific needs at no additional cost.

A VPS is the ideal solution for hosting commercial applications in a production or pre-production environment. Our infrastructure offers user services a reduced margin and hardware availability guaranteed by SLA to ensure a stable service at all times.
Answers to your questions
Why choose VPS hosting in Italy?
Server location and IP geolocation are key factors in determining the placement of a website on Google. Internet users are much more likely to click on a local website. This is why, if your customer target is based in Italy, hosting VPS Italia is simply the most effective way to guarantee smooth access to your services. All this while maintaining full cost control and the ability to scale without constraints. With our teams working 24/7 on our infrastructures, you can focus on developing your websites and applications, as well as expanding your infrastructure.
What are the features of an OVHcloud VPS in Italy?
Our VPS solutions are designed for maximum control and flexibility, while offering a good price/performance ratio. You can access your virtual server’s robot to configure it however you want. It has an easy-to-use interface, with an operating system panel (Windows, Linux, etc.) ready to launch with one click. You can also add additional transfers and resources to suit your needs. In addition to geolocation options and additional IPs, all of our VPS Italy solutions are equipped with our anti-DDoS service to ensure you are fully protected in the event of an attack.
What is a VPS, and what is it used for?
A virtual private server (VPS) can be used to host websites (e-commerce, content, media) and software applications (portals, extranets, collaborative solutions, wikis, CRM). Unlike shared hosting, the data is isolated onto a virtual machine which is dedicated to the user.
The VPS is a perfect compromise between web hosting plans and physical servers, combining reliability with the high performance of a dedicated server — but without the difficulty of managing a server's physical hardware.
Who are VPS solutions designed for?
Using a VPS requires basic knowledge of server administration. This knowledge is essential for managing the operating system (Linux, Windows, PrestaShop or WordPress) installed on the machine, and configuring the applications.
Think you might need a VPS, but don’t have the technical knowledge required? We recommend getting in touch with one of our partners.
If you would like to get guaranteed resources but don't know how to manage servers, we recommend Performance Web Hosting plans.
Can I host several websites on a VPS?
Yes. A VPS can be partitioned, and organised to suit your requirements. This means you can use it to host several websites or projects, by allocating a private space to each one. You choose the volume of each space, too. To simplify how you do this, you can install a web hosting control panel like Plesk or cPanel.
Will I get a domain name and email service included with my VPS?
VPS solutions do not include domain names or email services natively. These options are available directly from the OVHcloud Control Panel once your VPS is delivered.
How do I choose between a VPS and a web hosting plan?
Using a VPS is the next logical step up from using a web hosting plan. Virtual private servers offer a wider range of options, and more flexibility in terms of configuration, access and features (root access, Apache PHP.init). You can also install an SSL certificate and any other software you want.
However, we would like to emphasise the importance of choosing the right VPS for you. A VPS needs to be configured in a way that suits your application requirements, and the growth of your business.
How do I choose between a VPS and Plesk web hosting?
With a Plesk web hosting plan, you are provided with a storage space that has Plesk pre-installed. You can manage your websites, but you are not the administrator of the service. You can only use it for managing your projects.
If you choose a VPS, you are the server admin, and OVHcloud has no access to its content. This way, you free to configure it in whatever way you like.
What are the differences between VPS and Public Cloud solutions?
A Cloud VPS is a virtual machine optimised and designed to adapt to pre-production and production environments. It is a dedicated environment on which you can host one or more web projects.
The OVHcloud Public Cloud offers a multi-server infrastructure, with high availability for servers. vRack, a private network service, is also available with this solution.
What are the advantages of a VPS, compared to a dedicated server?
The advantage of a VPS is that you don’t have to worry about hardware management ------ like monitoring the status of hard disks, RAM, and CPU. They are adapted to host most types of web projects that are moderately sized.
We recommend using a dedicated server if you want to manage the hardware yourself, build more elaborate architectures, create an infrastructure that includes a private network (vRack), or deploy complex solutions other than web services.
As a general rule, users with a growing volume of web activity either move up to dedicated servers, or Public Cloud solutions. These services offer more complex, flexible infrastructures that can adapt to a high level of growth.
