Your questions answered
Which hosting package should I choose for my website?
Each Web Hosting plan is designed to suit a specific purpose.
- Need individual hosting for your webpage, online CV or personal blog? Choose OVHcloud Personal Hosting solution.
- For business hosting, which involves one or more websites or an e-commerce store, choose our Professional or Performance Hosting solutions.

Please note that our Web Hosting plans support HTML, PHP and the MySQL relational database management system.
What services do I need for my website?
Like a computer, your hosting system has a hard disk with a defined storage volume. This is why it is essential to choose a hosting plan with enough disk space to store your files.
You also need to reserve a domain name and link it to your web hosting plan, so that web users can access the content you publish on your website. It is important to take care when choosing a domain name, because it not only represents your website address, but it also represents your company’s brand image.
We also recommend creating email addresses linked to your domain name. This fosters trust and a solid brand image for communications with both existing and future customers.
As for security, HTTPS protocol has become the norm. Web browsers always check for an SSL certificate on your Web Hosting plan.
You will also need FTP access delivered by your hosting provider to access your server, and transfer your files onto it.
Finally, we recommend anticipating the way your business will grow in the future. You can do this by opting for a Web Hosting plan that offers a slightly higher capacity than what your website needs to function optimally.
What is the difference between dedicated hosting and a shared hosting plan?
There are two main types of web hosting plan: shared hosting and dedicated hosting.
With shared hosting, multiple customers share a server and its resources. This means you get a service that is very affordable, pre-configured and ready-to-use. This is the perfect solution if you want simple, low-cost hosting.
A dedicated hosting plan is an isolated service for each customer. This can be a physical server or VPS with central processing resources (CPU), RAM, and bandwidth dedicated to one or more users. Users are not affected in any way by the resource usage of other server occupants. In all cases, each user’s services and data are fully isolated.
What is website hosting?
There are billions of websites on the internet. They are created all over the world, available from one place, and accessible via an internet connection. Many of these websites rely on the expertise of web hosting providers, who offer custom web hosting services in their datacentres. At the hardware level, it is a computing server that is continuously connected to the internet, and the website’s databases and files are stored on it. When this hardware is paired up with a domain name, you have a comprehensive solution for publishing your website across the globe.
Why choose an affordable web hosting plan?
There are several reasons why you might want a low-cost web hosting plan. The first, most obvious reason is the money you can save. Compared to any other hosting solution, shared hosting is the most affordable and popular option for administrators of small websites.
Secondly, there is the benefit of only paying for the resources you use. Some solutions come with a lot of resources included, such as an unlimited number of databases, or a high volume of storage space — but if your project does not need all of these resources, why pay for them? The best hosting plan is one that delivers the power your projects need to function optimally.
