The performance of VPS, the availability of the cloud
- Simple, scalable and customisable
- A dedicated environment
- Unlimited traffic*
Our Cloud VPS solutions will support your projects from start to finish, and can be scaled up when you need more resources. This means you do not have to provision your resources in advance. Simply add them when you need them, with total transparency — and manage your budget, too.
We use next-generation Intel architectures, and NVMe SSD storage for maximum performance. The VPS solutions are assembled and configured by our teams — and they are powered by an infrastructure designed to offer resiliency.
A dedicated environment
You are provided with administrative access to your virtual private server, so you can get the very most out of the hardware resources allocated to you. With this dedicated environment, you are free to manage your hosting space as you see fit.
Simplicity and independence
By opting for a virtual private server, you can concentrate on your core business without having to focus on hardware constraints, like upgrading components. You are free to manage and configure your VPS, with a choice of Windows and Linux operating systems — and you can use web hosting control panels like Plesk and cPanel, too.
To give you even more peace of mind, the Cloud VPS gives you unlimited traffic*. Depending on the model you choose, you can get a maximum bandwidth of 2 Gbit/s. And our billing is transparent, with no hidden costs for the service.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
With our backup options, you can ensure security for the data you host on your web server. You can choose between an external storage space for your backups, an automated daily backup system, or you can take snapshots of your VPS. And you can manage all of this via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
By choosing a datacentre closest to your users, you can minimise latency for them and offer a fluid browsing experience. Our virtual private servers are also based on an infrastructure with hardware availability guaranteed by an SLA.
Why choose a Cloud VPS?
This would be the best choice for you if your projects are likely to grow in future. You can adapt your virtual server accordingly by adding resources quickly (RAM, disk space, vCores) via the OVHcloud Control Panel. The Cloud VPS offers high performance, and comes at a very affordable price in comparison to web hosting on a dedicated server.
What is a Cloud VPS?
A Cloud VPS is a virtual private server you can use to host your website, production environment or pre-production environment. It offers business-level requirements, and hardware availability guaranteed by an SLA. Unlike shared hosting, you have full control over the server’s entire configuration — so you can configure it to suit your needs.
How do I choose between a VPS and a web hosting plan?
The best service for you depends on what your needs are, and your level of technical skill. If you do not have any server administration knowledge, then a web hosting plan will be the best solution for your needs. A web hosting plan is essentially a turn-key hosting solution. With its standard configuration, you can host a website built with popular CMS tools like WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal or PrestaShop, for example.
If you know how to manage a server and your project requires a specific configuration, then a VPS will be the right option for you. This solution is fully-administrable, and works with a number of different operating systems.
How do I set up an OVHcloud Cloud VPS?
It is very easy to set up a Cloud VPS — simply follow our guide on getting started with a VPS. We offer a number of different Linux (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, etc.) and Windows operating systems, which come pre-installed on your virtual private server.
What happened to the legacy Cloud 1 VPS, Cloud 2 VPS and Cloud 3 VPS solutions?
The Cloud 1 VPS, Cloud 2 VPS and Cloud 3 VPS solutions have now been replaced by the new VPS range. Our newer models offer improved performance, and are more modular — giving you more flexibility to add resources (RAM, storage and processors).
*For VPS hosted in Sydney and Singapore: 1TB traffic/month for the Starter and Value VPS ranges, 2TB/month for the Essential VPS range, 3TB/month for the Comfort VPS range and 4TB/month for the Elite VPS range. Bandwidth is reduced to 10Mbps once the monthly quota is exceeded.
