Topic: OVH VPS?

Just wondering, has anyone tried the VPS at OVH?

Their cheapest option seems to be £2.99/month including VAT with 2GB of RAM and 10GB SSD, 2.4GhZ CPU and 1 vCore, although it doesn't seem to come with a domain.

I've seen VERY mixed reviews of this service and I'm unsure who to believe, what side?

I also want to know what their domains seem to be like (around £5.36/2years for a .uk domain), which I don't know anything else about.

Mostly I want to know about the actual servers themselves and what they're like to use.

Thanks.

Re: OVH VPS?

I didn't try OVH VPS but I had one dedicated with them (Kimsufi). Overall is good, anyways, don't expect too much from their antiDDoS...

Cheers.

What are the reviews mixed about? What good or bad things do they mention?

Re: OVH VPS?

A lot of complaints about bad support and payment-related stuff, but good stuff about the server stabilty, mostly.
However I'm used to using community support.

Obviously OVH has a lot of customers and they cannot give support like "how to install X thing" or things like that. I had a billing problem with them and they replied me in one day or less. Yeah, don't expect that kind of "helpful" support. Only for technical things.

Cheers.

Re: OVH VPS?

I get a reply within 4 hours at the Canada location. Used it for a year and had no problems.

We have moved the community http://hosters.cc. I'll still pop in on here to see how things are going.

Re: OVH VPS?

Thanks smile
I can ask the community how to install scripts etc. and use tickets for technical support and problems, which is fine so yeah.

Looks like it's something I will definitely consider.
I'm actually on the OVH community website just have zero posts, but once I can get their services I'll probably start posting stuff.

Look into installing a web panel that will do most of the work for you. I used Ajenti and was able to get alot of the work done without having to use the command line (besides installing it).

I would prefer ispconfig, personally I think its more appropiated for hosting than ajenti.

I was a OVH customer. Their VPS are good but when I submit ticket, they take 3-5 days to reply, even if it is a very small issue.

Re: OVH VPS?

I've been on the cheapest VPS plan for 7 months now and so far have no complaints to make. Customer Support replies within 2 hours max. Once I was unable to pay for a month due to problems with my card and the support representative kindly gave me a one week extension to make payment.  Experienced no (serious) downtime so far and highly recommend OVH if you're looking to start something.
