I have been with this service now for a few months and I noticed there are 2 things about it which impacts the server quality.

At night certain files stop loading properly. I have never seen this o...Read Moren my other accounts elsewhere.

The bandwidth is also questionable. It's VERY fast but sometimes at random times of the week it goes down to a slow 500k which lasts a few 20-30 minutes each occurrence. It so random. Sometimes is very short and sometimes is much longer lasting.

I am not sure if its my script but this has not happened on the other ISP I have been with. It's a developer site with no members so it can't be ddos or any robots causing this. My login and access is not set for public.

Really Frustrating

Bought hosting package. Paid for a full year...can't use the email service two months now, even after providing the requested KYC documents. Customer support is porous. No logical structure in handling queries. Slow response rate....Read More.the whole thing is just a big regret! Highly frustrated with this people..why list a service that you don't have capacity to provide..you conveniently debit for payment without delivery service..even something as basic as SSL bought from them does not make sense...Less

Don’t both with OVH, very unhelpful staff, 48 hours for a response if your lucky and that will be a standard robotic response.

OVH are quick to take your money but won’t refund or credit if they over charge. They will bill you for terminated services.

i'd purchased a vps plan on 18th sept, tried to setup 3 times but always returned with some error. the first time issue with root access, 2nd time issue with outdated command and third time with securing vps,

i give up after 3...Read Morerd attempt and wanted to cancel the vps, but their cancel form always returned with error.

then i'd opened support ticket to cancel the order, they replied after 3 days "Please note that we offer the refund only if there are any hardware faults"

i explained then next day they replied "Our billing team has reviewed your refund request and we regret to inform you that you are not eligible for a refund."

their stupid server not workings and now they don't refund for it too.

i lost my money but you better be careful.

So Far So Good!

I've been checking OVHcloud for a While now and Finally took a Dedicated Server. Uptill now, I haven't faced any issues and Outages. However, The promised time for provisioning was shown 120 seconds and I got provisioning after an...Read More hour which was nowhere mentioned. Support is Not responsive and takes around a day for reply and sometimes 3 days, However, One of their team members Harry contacted me for Purchasing the Server and uptill now, I've only contacted him regarding me Solutions and was satisfactory. Take a Note that OVH Call lines are too busy that it takes 20min to get them on the phone... I've Just used them for 10 days and so I cannot give more Insights... But till now, I am good that there is someone I can message if anything happens.... However, I thought the Response timings would be same like of Hetzner DC (30min) which I apparently left ordering servers due to its sudden price hike but overall its good! I don't know much about the cases of Bad reviews so no Comment on them...Less

OVH Used to be good. Not anymore

I have been with OVH over 5 years. I lease a dedicated server. My package including Cpanel was $76 per month. This month they decided to raise my Cpanel license to $50 per month just for CPanel. Cpanel states on their website ...Read Morethat partners pay .0175 per domain. OVH is one of the largest hosting companies in the world. I am sure they are partners. That means my package (the smallest they offer is 300 domains) costs OVH about $5 per month. Their customer service has always been terrible, their reliability leaves much to be desired and now their pricing is ridiculous. I will be movingLess

Uptime & Reliability

Excellent 99.99% Uptime Guarantee

They offer a 99.99% uptime guarantee with a less than 5 minute response time guarantee in the event of a hardware failure.  This should give customers the confidence they need to know that their site will be up at all times.  The added guarantee of the 5 minute response time is nice because it shows that they are planning for those times when the unexpected happens.

The fact that the company uses RAID 10 configuration for their hard disks is also going to help keep sites up and stable.  Of course, this company designs their own world class data centers with redundant power, network and cooling systems so the facility itself will help to avoid any large scale outages.

Features

Quality Features

OVH has many great features.  Their lowest hosting level is a regular or cloud based VPS solution.  It is priced in line with most companies shared hosting options, but you'll have the added power of the VPS, which is nice.  The cloud VPS is slightly more expensive, but still a good deal.  There are several options within each category so you can get exactly what you need without paying extra.

They guarantee CPU power, starting with 2 vCores at the entry level and moving up to 8 for the highest level VPS.  You'll also get guaranteed RAM availability starting with 2 gigs and moving up to 16.  The hard disk space is also very generous ranging from 25 to 200 gigs, all of which are in a RAID 10 configuration for added stability.

One really nice feature is that you can upgrade your hardware specs at any time without having to do any server transfers or things like that.  This helps to keep your website up and running while still giving you plenty of room to grow.

Support

Good Tech Support

Their technical support is on site in their data centers and ready to help you when you need it.  The fact that they have a 5 minute response time for failed hardware is an example of the benefits of this company.  They are also skilled with what they do so they can answer any questions you have or provide help when you need it. They also have a forum and blog to help with ensuring you have the best possible hosting experience.

Summary

Very Nice Hosting Option

This company provides their customers with everything they will need to host any type of site that they want.  There are a lot of different options so you can be sure to get exactly what you need.  Most people are going to be very happy with the level of service they are given with OVH.

Pros:

  • Great data centers
  • 99.99% uptime guarantee (plus 5 minute response time guarantee)
  • Fair prices

Cons:

  • No shared hosting options
  • So many choices may be confusing to customers without hosting experience
