Why deploy cPanel on an OVHcloud VPS?
Our VPS solutions are designed to give you even more freedom when it comes to hosting your websites. The main advantage is that you can add resources to it as needed, so you can keep control over your budget. And to further optimise the management of your websites hosted on our VPS solutions, you can deploy the cPanel management platform.
With its ergonomic graphical interface, you can manage your websites and online shops in just a few clicks. It has a range of features and allows centralised multi-site management. What’s more, when you receive your VPS in your Control Panel, cPanel is already pre-installed to save you time.
Our VPS solutions are powered by the latest hardware resources, NVMe SSD storage, and a resilient infrastructure. Our goal is to provide you with a stable solution with low latency. All of our VPSs come with a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
You get up to 2 Gbit/s bandwidth on your VPS, and there is no limit on incoming and outgoing traffic.* So you can host your websites and applications, without fear of additional costs during traffic spikes.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
To protect the data hosted on our VPS solutions, we offer two backup options. You can use auto-backup to schedule automatic and regular backups. With the Snapshot option, you can take a snapshot of your VPS at any time via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
Your questions answered
What is cPanel?
It is a graphical management interface based on a Linux OS (operating system). It simplifies the way you manage your website, with features that centralise management in one interface. It is compatible with our shared hosting plans, VPSs and dedicated servers.
What is the difference between cPanel Hosting and cPanel VPS?
cPanel hosting is generally a solution for hosting a website or application that uses cPanel. For example, at OVHcloud, cPanel is used on our shared hosting services. The difference between a VPS and a shared hosting plan is in the freedom of managing it. With shared hosting, all resources are distributed between the different users of the hosting solution and it is our teams that fully maintain the solution. You cannot customise it.
A VPS, on the other hand, offers a dedicated environment. By definition, it is a virtual server that is cut from a physical machine, so you have allocated hosting space. You can add resources depending on how your activity develops. Both solutions are hosted in our own datacentres, and are available worldwide.
What is the difference between the cPanel dedicated server and the cPanel VPS?
A cPanel dedicated server is an entire server managed with this interface. All of its resources are allocated to you (CPU, RAM, disk space, bandwidth, etc.). It is best suited for advanced web projects, intensive usage, and companies that require increased security.
Although the VPS has a lot in common with the dedicated server in terms of administration, some of its resources are shared. However, your environment remains private, which guarantees you excellent control over your hosted solutions, good scalability and more management flexibility.
What are the specific features of cPanel?
cPanel offers various possibilities and options so you can manage your website the way you want:
- file, database, and domain management
- email management, including contact and security controls
- metrics which allow you to view your website visitors and resource usage
- security options with several control tools, such as 2FA and SSL
- application installation, platform management and PHP
- Softaculous App Installer, which allows you to install hundreds of applications directly from cPanel
- advanced tools, such as cron task management and error pages
How do I install cPanel on a VPS?
You must have a VPS compatible with the cPanel interface, and an OVHcloud customer account. Once you have this, please refer to our step-by-step guide on: “How to install cPanel on my VPS”.
Which hosting solution should I use with cPanel?
Shared hosting, VPS or dedicated server: at OVHcloud, all of these solutions are cPanel-compatible. They each offer their own advantages, depending on the nature and growth of your web project.
|Shared hosting||Virtual private server||Dedicated server|
|Managed solution (monitoring, updates, etc.)|
|Unlimited monthly traffic*|
|Regular backup options|
|Choice of operating systems|
Remember that before you choose a hosting plan, you must have a domain name.
Which operating systems are compatible with a VPS?
Our virtual private servers are compatible with a wide range of operating systems. You can have a VPS with Windows or Linux (including the Debian and Ubuntu VPSs). The advantage is that we can offer you solutions that you are already familiar with. Please note that Windows licences are not included with our solutions and are billed separately. Linux licences are not subject to additional billing, as they are open-source.
You can choose the OS you want to use when ordering your VPS from your Control Panel.
