Your questions answered

Which Web Hosting plan should I choose?

Choose a web hosting plan to suit your project. For example, if you would like to start your e-commerce business, you can use our Performance plan. If your website project is more of a showcase site, a Professional web hosting plan will deliver on what you need. To be sure which hosting plan you want to invest in, you will need to define your web project’s long-term objective beforehand. Similarly, if you need to create or host business applications, you will need higher capacity hosting. In this case, we recommend opting for our Cloud Web solution, for example.

How do I choose a hosting plan for my website?

Choose your cloud hosting plan based on the resources it can allocate to you. A simple website with contact forms does not necessarily need dedicated resources — so a Personal or Professional Hosting plan will deliver what you need. If your website is a blog, a shared hosting plan will be more than enough to cover your needs. The important thing is to define what matters most to your customers or visitors, and allocate the resources required to meet their needs when you choose your plan.

How do I manage my Web Hosting plan?

Once your hosting order has been placed, you can access it easily via the OVHcloud Control Panel. Here, you can manage your hosting plan, get information on its status and operation, and allocate resources to your projects. You can carry out all the actions required to manage your services properly in the OVHcloud Control Panel.

What type of web hosting should I choose?

If your web project does not require high volumes of resources, you can easily opt for shared hosting. Our expert teams monitor the hardware, and you can switch to another hosting plan at any time via the OVHcloud Control Panel.

If you want more flexibility and power, we recommend choosing a dedicated hosting plan. All of the resources listed are allocated exclusively to you. You are free to manage your hosting capacity as you see fit, and adapt it to your needs and activities. If you would like to get this level of flexibility at a lower cost, you can opt for a VPS (virtual private server). All of our website hosting services are provided with technical support, and you can contact our support teams if you have any questions or need advice.
