Your questions answered
What is a web hosting plan?
A web hosting plan is a package that includes a range of essential elements for putting a website online. The hosting provider delivers a storage space connected to the internet, and you can assign a domain name of your choice to it. This generally includes databases for storing your website information, an email solution for managing your communications, and a backup system. Shared hosting services are the most affordable plans, and generally require very little technical knowledge.
Which web hosting plan should I choose for my e-commerce website?
Hosting an online store requires different services compared to a standard website. You need to provide your customers with optimal service, so that they order from you rather than choosing a competitor. To achieve this, it is important to ensure that your web hosting plan has guaranteed resources. This means your e-commerce website always gets optimal performance, regardless of the number of online visitors — and your customers get the ultimate buyer experience. This is why your store must be able to load its webpages as quickly as possible. Finally, since you manage transactions, security is of utmost importance for your website — so you will need an SSL certificate.
To meet these specific needs, we offer the Performance Hosting plan. It is a perfect solution for launching your e-commerce website, and supporting its growth.
What can I do with a Performance Hosting plan?
With this solution’s performance and guaranteed resources, you can host an e-commerce website, and choose to develop it either manually or with a CMS (PrestaShop, WordPress, WooCommerce, etc.). You can easily host several projects on it, as our services give you the ability to set up as many websites as you want.
Can I host several websites on a Performance Hosting plan?
We have designed our Performance Hosting plans to host the number of websites you want. You can link several domain names to it, and get a high volume of storage space to host your most advanced projects. Our solution offers limitless possibilities.
Can I have more resources for a few days?
Yes, you can use the Boost option to prepare for temporary traffic spikes on your website. This means that your resources are increased for a set period of time, to compensate for an exceptional increase in traffic.
How do I ensure that my website delivers optimal response times worldwide?
Your Performance Hosting plan includes the OVHcloud CDN. Our points of presence are spread across the globe, and offer improved access to your website content. This means your visitors get quicker loading times, and a smoother browsing experience.
Is there a limit to the number of databases I can use to host my websites?
With the Private SQL server included as part of your solution, you can host as many databases as you want.
How do I find out more about my visitors?
OVHcloud Web Statistics is included in all of our plans, and provides a detailed view of different types of information on your visitors. You can do this for each domain and subdomain you have on a single hosting plan.
How do I install PrestaShop on my web hosting plan?
With our 1-click modules, it has never been so quick and easy to install PrestaShop on your e-commerce web hosting plan. Once you have launched the installation, you just need to follow the PrestaShop configuration steps, and then the tool is ready to use. If you would like to set it up yourself, you can also download the latest version of PrestaShop from its official website, and set it up on your web hosting plan.
