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 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
Very good experience. No downtime in last 3 months.

I signed up with A Small Orange despite seeing many bitter reviews on the internet. I've been using ASO shared (small) plan for 3 months. Never experienced any issue with their service. I've monitored my website uptime with J... More etpack plugin of wordpress and tested speed, server response time regularly. Never experienced any downtime in last 3 months. Pingdom shows my website is faster than the 98% website. Actually, so far I'm very happy with their service.
It is true that their support ticket is very slow and they took almost two weeks to reply my ticket about registering a new domain. But I never had to wait more than 3 minutes to get live chat support. My ticket was solved instantly via live chat.
Another good thing about ASO is their server name and user area interface is very unique and user friendly.
Hope ASO will remain consistent with their good service. Best wishes for ASO team!

Don’t bother

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 yo... More u for terminated services. Less
Truly a sub 1/5 company

I would give them less than 1/5 if it was possible.
Avoid this host at all costs. Mind numbingly dumb people working customer service and the tech guy destroyed my company website. Right now they can't figure out how to send ... More me a backup to transfer to another hosting company or they think they're playing me to get more of my money. Forget ASO. Less
