OVHcloud VPS solutions are designed to cover all your needs for getting started online. They also offer optimal flexibility, so you can scale them up as your web projects grow. Unlike a dedicated server, for example, you do not need to provision hardware resources well in advance. Simply add the extra resources to your virtual server whenever you need them, directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel — and they will be automatically provisioned to you. With a VPS infrastructure, you only pay for what you need, when you need it — so this strategy will help you massively with cost control.
Our expert teams have designed our virtual servers to deliver optimal performance. Since our virtual private servers are powered by Intel next-generation architecture and NVMe SSD storage, they are based on a highly resilient infrastructure.
A dedicated environment
Unlike shared hosting plans, the hardware resources listed in your VPS specs are fully-dedicated to your projects — and you also get root access. As the superuser and server administrator, you can choose exactly how you host your production platforms and business applications. This adaptable, scalable space is perfect for managing your web projects as they grow.
Simplicity and independence
One of the advantages of our virtual private servers is the autonomy they offer. We offer a wide range of operating systems to install and configure, so you can choose the best one for you. To further simplify how you set up your web projects, you can also install a web hosting control panel like Plesk, or cPanel.
With OVHcloud VPS servers, traffic is unlimited* — and the maximum bandwidth is 2Gbit/s. If you want to host services and applications that require high bandwidth for an outstanding user experience, this will prove to be a massive cost-saving advantage.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
Store and secure your data on an external storage space, using our VPS backup options. With the Snapshot option, you can take a snapshot of your virtual server in just a few clicks via the OVHcloud Control Panel.

What is a VPS, and what is it used for?
Virtualised from a physical server, the VPS (virtual private server) is a virtual machine offering resources that can be finely sized according to the project’s requirements. This granularity in the choice of CPU, RAM and disk space means that the service is affordable and offers good value for money. Like a physical server, the service is fully administrable, from the operating system to the various software applications used. You can host one or more projects in a production or test environment on a VPS.
Who can use a VPS?
A VPS gives users a very wide range of configuration options, including choice of operating system and software. As such, it requires technical knowledge in setting and maintaining all these parameters. The Linux operating systems including Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS can be installed manually or automatically, using the pre-installation option provided during your server order. You can also install another operating system, such as Windows, which is also available for automatic installation. If you don’t want to manage your own server, we offer a range of web hosting plans, preconfigured with PHP, databases, and a range of services that are essential for hosting a website or e-commerce platform. The Performance Hosting plan is the ideal solution for hosting one or more websites.
Can I host several websites on a single VPS?
Your VPS Tunisia doesn't limit you in terms of the number of websites you can host. You can install as many as you want, provided that the allocated resources are sufficient to power each website. A control panel like Plesk or cPanel will facilitate your management by providing you with a preconfigured architecture and a graphical interface. Hosting multiple websites on a single server can be a low-cost solution. You only need to plan the resources to allocate to each of the sites for optimal operation.
How do I choose between a VPS and a web hosting plan?
These two types of servers offer quite different services. A VPS is a virtual server that you can fully configure, from the choice of operating system to the access rights, libraries and software that you want to install. It is the answer to a need for freedom in administration, which is not offered, for example, in a standard web hosting plan. A VPS is best suited to an expert audience with technical knowledge, who can manage their own server. Shared hosting is a set of standard services that are suitable for most websites. With a domain name, email accounts, databases and storage space, you have everything you need to launch your website. As well as being very affordable with this type of solution, standard hosting has the advantage of only requiring technical knowledge to set up your website. Is the server managed by the hosting provider, who is in charge of maintaining the system and offers additional services that are mostly automated for novice users?
