So Far So Good!
Ankesh Anand,
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
A great servers and very good vps!
Deiji Kenamo,
Servers are very good and not expensive for performances (I don't talk about auction servers, those are not that good and much more expensive) Very fast network, free v switches very easy to manage and re scale vps servers w... More ith billing by hour, then maximum monthly price, great robot with many functions that can been programmed via that, setup fees for root servers are maybe a bit high but then servers are cheap, support is excellent and in case of problems interventions very fast.
Storage boxes as backup solution are also very cheap and on internal network fast enough. I use vps servers, storage boxes and root servers from them for some time now and I have nothing bad to tell.

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.
Absolute disappointment
David Parker,
If you have any professional project dont even consider. If you have some personal project and if you dont mind getting your servers blocked randomly without any explanation for hours and continues lockdowns and continues ran... More dom price increases, you can give it a try.
Stay away if you are doing serious work, it will be destroyed very fast and easily. Support treats you like you are a scammer, if any of your competitors sends a fake abuse request your server will get blocked righ away.

Winner: Hetzner Online

Michael Levanduski Expert Hosting Writer & Tester

Both OVH and Hetzner are considered ‘low cost’ hosting providers, which are typically used for entry level websites. While they have similar low prices, Hetzner is head and shoulders above OVH in terms of overall quality. Actual user reviews find that Hetzner gets an average score of 7.7 out of 10, compared to 4.5 out of 10 for OVH. Hetzner has also won many different awards over the years for things ranging from best GreenIT practices to awards related to their hosting. Once you analyze every aspect of these two companies, it is easy to name Hetzner as the winner of this comparison.
