OVHcloud VPS solutions are based on a virtualisation system and next-generation hardware components, guaranteeing quick access to your e-commerce website. Your dedicated resources will deliver much higher levels of performance than a standard web hosting plan. You can also host your VPS closest to where your customers are based, by selecting one of our many datacentres across the globe. This will minimise latency for your website, providing your users with a seamless browsing experience.
What are the advantages of using a VPS to host a PrestaShop website?
Our VPS solutions offer solid performance, so that your PrestaShop store is hosted under optimal conditions. This can also help you manage traffic spikes. You can adjust your VPS server’s CPU, RAM and storage capacity at any time.
What are the differences between a VPS and shared hosting?
When you select a web hosting platform, you will need to think about what you need it for, as well as your level of technical skill.
Not sure how to configure a server? A shared hosting plan is likely to be the best choice for you. This turn-key service comes with a standard configuration, providing you with a simple platform to host your website on.
Do you have experience managing servers, and does your project require a specific configuration? If so, a VPS will be your best option. It is fully configurable, offers dedicated resources, and you can adapt the solution to fit your needs.
