So Far So Good!
Ankesh Anand,
9.6
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 aft... More er an 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
Good platform for web hosting

I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.

Terrible Customer Support
Krzysztof Cieleń,

Abysmal customer support. They are absolutely terrible.
Not helpful, rude, and condescending. They closed my ticket without resolving it or checking it thoroughly.
If you count on any customer support whatsoever, stay clear f... More rom OVH.
If you have any problem, be it on their part or yours, you are alone.
Not recommended.

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!

Winner: 1&1

Idan Cohen Marketing Expert

When comparing OVH and 1&1 it is important to note that these are two discount hosting providers, so price is going to often be more important than power or overall quality. Other than the fact that 1&1 does have a free hosting option, OVH’s prices tend to be lower, without sacrificing on the quality. OVH also does a great job at building their own datacenters, which gives them some significant advantages. These facts, plus the fact that OVH is rated higher in real user reviews, makes them our winner in this comparison.
