Reliable, continuous service availability

Additional IP

£1.30 ex. VAT/IP/month or £1.56 incl. VAT/IP/month

Hosting without interruptions

With a VPS, you can take up to 16 Additional IPs to host your projects, SSL certificates, and more. This Additional IP can act as a failover IP, redirecting traffic from one server to another in a few seconds. As a result, your hosting solution will work without interruptions. This approach is the best way to handle hardware failures, overloaded applications, and other infrastructure problems. You can also use these Additional IPs to geolocate your services in 14 different countries.

Load Balancer

£15.99 ex. VAT/month or £19.19 incl. VAT/month

Guaranteed flexibility

The OVHcloud Load Balancer balances the load between services spread across multiple datacentres. It ensures that your infrastructure can be scaled to handle high volumes of traffic, boosts fault tolerance, and offers optimal response times. All of this is offered with a zero-downtime service level.

An external storage space

The external additional disk for our VPS solutions are highly resilient, since the data is replicated three times within our infrastructures. They can be activated on demand, and you can increase your storage capacity.

50 GB £4.80 ex. VAT/month or £5.76 incl. VAT/month
100 GB £9.70 ex. VAT/month or £11.64 incl. VAT/month
200 GB £14.50 ex. VAT/month or £17.40 incl. VAT/month
500 GB £29.20 ex. VAT/month or £35.04 incl. VAT/month

VPS backups

Backing up your data is vital to guarantee a smooth recovery in the event of a technical failure or configuration error. We offer two methods for backing up your data:

Automatic Backup

From £2.90 ex. VAT/month or £3.48 incl. VAT/month

Keep your data safe and protected

With the Automatic Backup option, you can avoid this hassle. A backup of your VPS (excluding additional disks) is scheduled daily (on a rolling 7-day basis), exported and replicated three times within the same datacentre before being available in the OVHcloud Control Panel.

Manual backup

From £1 ex. VAT/month or £1.20 incl. VAT/month

Create and restore your snapshot

For an efficient, affordable backup strategy, you can take snapshots of your virtual machine within the same datacentre. Unlike a full backup, you do not need to lock your data to stop it from being modified over the course of the procedure. This means you will always have an integral restore point.

Your questions answered

What are additional IP addresses used for?

With additional IP addresses, you can have one domain name for each IP. This will boost their SEO ranking, and ensure that any messages you send are not marked as spam.
Our VPS solutions are delivered with an IPv4 and IPv6 address. However, you can add up to 16 additional IPv4 addresses.

How does the Snapshot option work?

Snapshots are instantaneous images of your VPS, taken at a specific time. They can be compared to restore points.
You can create a snapshot via the OVHcloud Control Panel, save it, then use it to restore your VPS. Your VPS will then be restored back to the state it was in when the snapshot was taken.
Please note that when you restore a VPS from a snapshot, the snapshot is then deleted.

The price of this option varies depending on the disk space you want to back up.

How does the Automated Backup option work?

You can use Automated Backup to schedule backups of your VPS (excluding additional disks). These backups are taken every day, for a rolling period of seven days.
Your backups are exported to our infrastructure, and replicated three times across different servers. You can then use them at any time to restore your VPS.

The price of this option varies depending on the disk space you want to back up.

How does the additional space option work?

It is a storage space that is separate to your VPS. You can use it to copy data — often backups — from your virtual private server.
The additional space option can be compared to a USB drive that you plug into a computer, and copy sensitive data onto.
If you would like to automate backups of your data, you are responsible for configuring the system that will take the backups. You can choose to access this service via NFS or CIFS protocols.

What are the differences between Snapshot Backup and Automated Backup?

The Automated Backup option takes a daily backup of your VPS, which is replicated three times. You will always have access to seven different backups, corresponding to the most recent seven days of use.
Snapshots are taken manually, at a specific point, by you. When a snapshot is used to restore your VPS, it is erased at the end of the process.
