Your questions answered
What is web hosting?
A web hosting plan is a type of technology you can use to view website content. Without hosting, there would be no internet. This term generally refers to a storage space in a server, used for putting websites online. This makes the website’s content accessible to all visitors. Technologies and server power are constantly evolving, so you can also host complex applications and websites on a resource-intensive structure. Before you can host your website, you will need to have a domain name. This is a mandatory factor, as the Domain Name System (DNS) is what links a domain to an IP address. This is your online identity. When a web user enters your URL or part of your domain name in their browser, the DNS connects them to this address, and allows anyone to find your website. Having a personal server requires computing knowledge and manpower — it can also be costly. This is why hosting providers like OVHcloud offer their expertise to customers, so you can host your websites and applications easily and quickly.
What types of web hosting services are there?
Cloud hosting plans vary in price, structure and power.
Shared hosting offers a good balance between features and price. They are perfect for hosting a medium-sized website with high traffic forecasts. By definition, you share the physical server’s resources with other users also hosted on it. However, user data and content are completely isolated, so nobody else can access them.
A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual storage space with guaranteed resources. Virtualisation technology is used to divide up a physical server’s resources. Portions of the resources are then allocated to users as virtual machines. This means that users get their own hosting space, which they can make full use of. It is worth keeping in mind that since you get root access to the VPS, you will need to manage it yourself. Otherwise, you can seek services from a systems administration expert to manage it for you.
Cloud Web hosting gives you access to a virtual isolated server, which you have the resources of. This server is fully managed by us, so you can focus on developing your web project.
A dedicated server gives you the highest degree of freedom and performance. You get your own bare-metal server, hosted in our datacentres. You can use it to put complex web applications online, get started with AI projects, or host a website fleet. Dedicated servers are optimised to meet the needs of even the most ambitious projects.
From web hosting and VPS to dedicated servers, which option is best for my needs?
To find out what kind of hosting to choose, you will need to draw up your web strategy first. Depending on the size of your business, the scale of your online activity, and your IT infrastructure, your hosting requirements will evolve. For example, a coffee roaster who simply wants to have a WordPress blog about making the perfect coffee could opt for a web hosting plan. However, if they would like to host an online store with high traffic, we offer more powerful solutions, like our Performance plan. Activity involving big data, AI and machine learning will require solutions with higher capacities, such as a high-performance dedicated server from our Bare Metal range.
The important thing is to be able to assess your IT needs. If you choose a solution that can limit your flexibility, you risk losing visibility and relevance on search engines (outages, slow loading times, etc.). OVHcloud gives you greater flexibility when you choose between different solutions to support your web activity.
How do I get started with a web hosting solution?
Once you have chosen a hosting plan to suit your project, all you need to do is deploy it on the server. You can easily set up your project via the OVHcloud Control Panel. If you have not yet created your website, you can install a 1-click CMS module to create it. This way, you can get started designing it straight away.
If you already have a website, simply move its files to your hosting plan using the OVHcloud Control Panel with FTP Explorer, via an FTP client or in SSH.
You can then start creating your databases, as well as the email accounts linked to your domain name.
How do I secure my web hosting plan?
OVHcloud manages the security of your web hosting plans. By default, we enable anti-DDoS protection and a firewall on all of our hosting plans.
However, we recommend taking care to secure access to your website. We also strongly recommend setting a complex password for access to your OVHcloud customer account, as well as your databases. We also recommend activating HTTPS on your website.
If you use a CMS, there are modules that can be used to strengthen your website’s security.
Which web hosting package is best for an online store?
E-commerce websites in particular require more resources than simple showcase websites, for example. You will have additional clickable elements, order channels, information windows for banking parameters, customer and product databases, which require greater hosting resources. Our Performance range is particularly recommended for this type of use. You get more resources than our other web hosting plans, and you get a competitive price. You can link more than 1,000 email accounts to it, and you have an additional SQL database with 512MB RAM. This plan also offers ultimate flexibility so you can face high fluctuations in traffic, like sales periods and Black Friday. To do this, you just need to enable the Boost option to upgrade your solution to a higher level of resources for a set period.
