Good, I’m satisfied compared to the price paid

I have been quite pleased with OVH. Might not be 101% up and reliable (but none of this kind of service is bulletproof!) and the user dashboard, while for the 90% easy and modern, could be even more streamlined and intuitive. But hey it works, prices seemed good (there are often temporary sales) and clear with no hidden surprises (at least until now), and it does what I need without issues. Each use case might be different, but for simple setups like mine there’s not much to complain about.

Pros

The dashboard and services activation is easy and smooth to operate. Deployment times range from good to acceptable. Prices are competitive for my use case and you can subscribe for all the services you may need within OVH and manage them all together (VPS, domain names, email hosting with exchange, cloud security, and much more). I found to be very useful the option to delegate access to the dashboard to other users to allow for maintenance or collaborating.

Cons

Some parts of the dashboard are confusing and it might be difficult to find the options you were looking for, or miss them entirely. But for the most part is nice and smooth and with helpful hints. Some little downtime here and there but mostly minimal, and compared to the price paid I can’t complain! Customer Care unfortunately has been a little slow to respond, and not much helpful. Luckily the issues were not much impacting and solved themselves somehow.

OVH had very clear product pages and prices (renewals included) and allowed me to easily subscribe for all I needed in one place with transparency.

You get what you pay for

It's all fine as long as everything works.

Only two case scenarios work fine at OVH :
- You have a non critical app/website (unlikely if you're doing "real" business)
- You have a critical app but master the full tech stack yourself and just leave them the hardware to handle.

If you need blazing fast support to manage and troubleshoot your servers, you'd better look at someplace else.

Pros

It's a cheap host for the performance you get.
Ideal for a development environment.
But that's about all there is when you go with them.

Cons

The support is slow (we're talking days where you'd need hours at worst), tickets get lost.
Your last chance is often your first... call the phone hotline and pray to not have to wait in vain (they don't even have a chat support).
Their proprietary admin console is confusing as it often changes and is not consistent among their offers.
If you're not a system admin able to pinpoint your issue and make support job easier, get ready for a very frustrating customer experience when things go south.

Good player but bad support

OVH offer us to manage dedicaced server, vrtual server easely but to be honest, OVH it's not the best : you pay low so network issue can come...

Pros

OVH is a very good hosting company with little price from several years. They have regular update on their offer that helping administrator to build good network solution

Cons

Unfortunally, OVH have growth to fast and lost the "nerd" aspect of them : if you are not a big customers, you will have so bad support (waity for days for easy answer...). They have regular new product but they delete other solution with small window to prepare small company to manage with that.

OVHcloud, a great platform for your developments in the cloud

We have been working with OVH since 2011. In general, we are very happy. In these years we have had very few incidents.To be honest, we were one of the many clients affected by the huge fire that ovh suffered in one of its data centers. But, we have continued to trust this provider. And we are convinced that this fact will have served to reinforce all security measures.

Pros

What I like the most is the ease of use of the platform. As with other providers, you can create and control your VPS, but at OVHCloud we have functions that I don't find with other providers, or at least not so easily.For example, the server can be easily expanded without having to stop and notify the provider.You can also contract a daily automated backup. I can't find that option in other providers with an affordable price.

Cons

In the software platform, in our day to day I find nothing missing. Most necessities are conveniently located. Customer service could be improved. Especially in terms of specialists in Plesk and Linux in general. Many times, we need a closer support at an affordable cost. I know that ovh is working in this area, but in my experience I have missed it. Other providers have technicians who try to help you (on issues like spam, email, etc.)
