Your questions answered

What is a web hosting plan?

A web hosting plan is a service that groups together everything you need to put a website online. The web hosting plan includes a storage space connected to the internet, and you can attach a domain name corresponding to its web address. It also provides databases for storing information, as well as email addresses for communication. Web hosting plans are the most affordable option, and also the most accessible one for users who do not have any technical knowledge.

What can I do with a Personal Hosting plan?

With our Personal Hosting plan, you can put your simple, dynamic webpages online. You can also choose a content manager (CMS), like WordPress or Joomla!. This solution is generally used to host blogs and personal websites. We have created a comparison of our web hosting plans, so you can choose the best solution for your web projects.

What programming languages can I run on my hosting plan?

You can use the following programming languages on your hosting plan: HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, SQL and Python (CGI).

Why host a website?

As a web hosting provider, we work hard to ensure that your website receives the best service. With a power system designed to avoid any downtime, as well as an on-site hardware monitoring team, we deliver maximum uptime and availability for your solutions. By optimising our production chain for servers, as well as the way we use them in our datacentres, we can offer you reduced prices compared to hosting them on your premises.

Which web hosting package is best for an online store?

If you are looking to host an online store (e-commerce) with PrestaShop or Magento, for example, we recommend the Performance Hosting plan. This will give you greater efficiency, with guaranteed resources and more disk space. You also get several databases, plus a very high number of email accounts.

I have already built my own website, how do I put it online with the Personal Hosting plan?

Once you have created your website locally, you will need to use a tool like WampServer to migrate it to a hosting provider. This will then make it available on the internet. When you activate your Personal Hosting plan, you will receive an email containing the FTP access for it. Once you have logged in to a software program like FileZilla, you can use the FTP access to transfer your website to the server. Once you have migrated your files and attached your domain name to your web hosting plan, you can visit your website via your preferred browser.

What is a CMS?

A CMS (content management system) is a tool you can use to build a dynamic and responsive website, and manage your content via an easy-to-use interface. You can use it to create entire web pages, without needing any knowledge of web development languages.

What is the difference between shared hosting and dedicated hosting?

With a shared hosting solution, you can use a web server’s features without needing any technical knowledge. We take care of server management and supervision, so that you can focus on your business. Shared hosting also has a much more affordable price tag than a dedicated server, with resources sized to suit your needs.

Why choose OVHcloud as a cloud hosting provider?
