It also comes with a multitude of services adapted to freelancers, as well as small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Which cloud hosting package is best for an online store?

Our Performance Hosting plan is the best solution for hosting an online store (e-commerce). It offers the best performance, with a dedicated hosting system that provides your website with guaranteed resources and more disk space. You also get several databases, plus a very high number of email accounts.

How to install Joomla! on a Web Hosting plan

It is a very simple process. You can choose to install Joomla! in the order process for a Web Hosting plan. Otherwise, you can install it later on via the Web Hosting section of OVHcloud Control Panel, in the “1-click modules” tab. You can also install it yourself, by downloading it directly from the official Joomla! website.

How to install Drupal on a Web Hosting plan

We offer the option of installing Drupal automatically on your Web Hosting plan as part of the order process. You can also install it later on by going to the the 1-click modules tab, in the Web Hosting section of the OVHcloud Control Panel.

What is the difference between shared hosting and dedicated hosting?

With a shared hosting solution, you can use a web server’s features without needing any technical knowledge. They also have a much more affordable price tag than a dedicated server, with resources sized to suit your needs. Dedicated servers are designed for more complex uses that require high resources (RAM, CPU, disk space), and total freedom to configure the server.

What is a CMS used for?

A content management system, also called a CMS, is a site builder tool designed to help you create and manage your website. Bring your web project to life using an easy-to-use interface for creating your pages and designing their layout. There are many CMS tools on the market, but the most well-known tools are: WordPress, PrestaShop, Magento, Drupal and Joomla!.
