Your questions answered
How do I get started with a VPS?
You can manage our VPS servers easily, from the order process to the initial configuration. Once you have signed up to your VPS solution, you can configure your hosting space directly from the OVHcloud Control Panel. You are the root user, so you get the highest level of control. This means you can configure your virtual machine to suit your business needs. Once you have set up your VPS, you can secure it and attach a domain name by configuring DNS zones, for example. You can then easily carry out your diagnostics and backups.

What is the difference between a VPS and a shared hosting plan?
On your VPS server, you have root access — also known as administrator access. This means you can configure and manage it as needed. With shared hosting, you do not need to manage the technical aspects of your hosting package. Using a VPS requires a higher level of technical knowledge, but both shared hosting plans and VPS servers can be used to host websites and web applications. Please also note that on a shared cloud hosting plan, the server’s hardware resources are divided between different users — therefore they are not guaranteed.

Simply add resources as required for your business to work properly. With a cheap VPS, you can control the cost and risk of your launches and developments. You also get guaranteed availability.
What is the difference between a VPS and an SSD VPS?
The difference between a VPS and an SSD (solid-state drive) VPS is the storage technology used. All of our VPS solutions are equipped with NVMe or SATA SSD disk technologies. It is worth noting that NVMe SSDs are more powerful than SATA SSDs.
What is a VPS?
A virtual private server is a virtual machine created from a physical server. A virtualisation layer is applied to a physical machine, so multiple VPS servers can be created on it. The physical server’s hardware resources are divided among the VPSs.
Why opt for a low-cost VPS?
Scaling up your business can be both a technical and financial challenge. By opting for a low-cost VPS, you can develop and grow your project while managing the costs associated with it. You can then increase your virtual private server’s computing resources to suit your needs.
