Summary

OVH Web Hosting – Third Largest Web Hosting Provider in the World

Founded in 1999, OVH Web hosting has grown to be one of the best-known names in the web hosting business. The company now offers a full range of hosting and cloud services, to small and large businesses, across many industry sectors.

History / Founding of OVH Web Hosting

Founded in 1999, OVH is a French owned company that was set up by 24-year-old Octave Klaba. He borrowed 25,000 French Francs from friends and family to set up his new business. At a time when most people had not recognized the impact that the internet would have, the setting up of a web hosting service was a bold one. The foresight of Octave Klaba paid off. The business took off quickly and OVH was soon expanding.

As OVH grew, the company continued to innovate. In 2002, OVH Web Hosting began building its own servers. They did this so that they could have full control over the hosting chain. In 2003, the company introduced a revolutionary water-cooling system for its server clusters. They still use that same energy efficient cooling system today.

In 2015, OVH passed a major milestone. It grew to the extent that it had more than 150,000 hosted servers in its data centres. That same year, OVH also launched the largest data centre in Europe.

Company Size, Main Territories and Languages

Today, OVH has 27 data centres hosting 300,000 servers. It is the largest web hosting provider in Europe, and the third largest in the world. OVH is now valued at over $1,000 million and has an annual income of more than €320 million.

The company has data centres spread right across the world. There are OVH data centres in North America, Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia. As well as localized servers, OVH is one of the few hosting companies to offer local language support. OVH support is based in 19 local centres around the world.

So I decided to purchase a $125 dollar a month package for vm hosting 32 gb ram two 500 gb ssd's. I was very excited. however I spent 1 week straight of 4-5 hours a day trying to set this up. So for all u who are thinking of 6.5 e

sxi dont rent from these people... The current network bridging guide is outdated. Nothing was installed properly. I tried to run the current guide. but the script installation was outdated, so the name of the network interface was something totally different, than what ovh told me to use... I followed there network bridging guide exactly. so I get to the part where I have internet on 1 VMWARE MACHINE!!!! Then comes the DNS. I followed the resolv.conf guide for centos7... Of course did not work.
So here I am, spent hard earned money on a machine. OVH knows nothing. Dont rent for the intent of Vmware... it is difficult, time consuming and there guides are far inadequate for this purpose. The ovh resolv.conf script is incompatible with centos7, elastix etc. so if you have something you need to host right away. and u need vmware. dont do it, please. Unless you have the patience, time and effort to set this all up dont do it. Im still pissed off about this. if you rent from ovh you may as well, drive down to home depot, buy the biggest bucket you can find throw all your money and light on fire.

The other shitty thing about this, is that they scam u by only giving a trial license for vmware... So I got the shit webviewer for vmware that was awful. Which expires in 2 months, then ur on your own and have to buy vsphere. So on top of this monthly fee. You better have cash on hand to buy a vmware license.

They do not care about your website or if it goes down or gets suspended for a few days. Unless you are spending thousands with them you get treated poorly with very slow service on support tickets. The control panel is not great 

as it sometimes goes not load or you get stuck in a loop, making it impossible to complete verification checks and send it 3 ID documents which is what they asked me for.

OVH are probably one of the best hosting providers in the world. Their admin interface is something to behold and offers configuration of pretty much everything you could ever ask for. Their up times are solid when you factor in things such as them getting hit with one of the largest DDoS attacks ever recorded and their upload download speeds are sky high, plus, for the quality of the service being offered the price is phenomenal.

There is of course one caveat to this. If you are a newby who doesn't understand networking infrastructure or the client server modal and the software running these machines etc then you should not use them. They expect you to be an expert before you use their services.

If you call them up and ask how you can correctly configure your WHM install then you will be, quite rightly, laughed off the phone instead of hand-held through the process. Personally, as a professional that is exactly how I like things to be. I do not enjoy having to call up hosts because I do not have sudo on my virtual machine, I don't like hosts configuring my boxes for me and I do not like hosts that rollout forced updates etc.

My whole job is to make sure that our servers are singing sweetly together, this is what I do, and it works really well with OVH. If you are just getting started or you are in over you head then go to GoDaddy.

We've been a client of OVH for many years and we've never had solid support. Everytime we ask a question, we're always replied to with a vague link to some documentation or worse; that they can't help with the problem even though it's obviously about the hosting itself. You get what you pay for...

I have used OVH twice to host my sites. The first time was for a student project, the second was for a business that I launched. Both times I used the basic offers and also ordered the domain names through their service.

In both cases, I found the service to be professional, adequate and working perfectly. I never really experienced a problem using their services. If I had to indicate a downside concerning this service, it is the interface of the dashboard, even if it does the job and is quite complete, I found it quite austere and had an old UI/design.

Main dissapointing thing is support. They do what they want, when they want. If they want, they close support ticket with formal answer or even without it, just many days have passed what to do, need to close.

Billing not working, not a problem. Can't return dedicated server because of http error 403 in confirmation page - ok, then pay forever, no answer in support as usual for many days. Created the ticker with question - how much time do you need for answering one ticket?

Four days ago they decided to answer so difficult question with the usual beginning 'sorry so much tickets..' Maybe try to hire some more people to support?! Or what do they think at least, it will be allowed to close or delay everything in their business?

Bonjour, mon expérience concerne les serveurs dédiés de SoYouStart filiale d'ovh, mais plus précisément sur la qualité réseau, mon commentaire a pour but de sensibiliser les autres, car pour ma part hébergeant serveurs de jeux, et voip, j'ai perdu tous mes utilisateurs a cause de SoYouStart (+ de 60 joueurs quotidien du à la latence), et il n'y a pas assez d'avis concernant SYS et Kimsufi, donc clarifions les choses. Soyons clair, j'invite tous les clients de SoYouStart sans exceptions à effectuer des tests de pertes de paquets sur leur serveur, ou bien si vous n’êtes pas client, testez la pertes de paquets sur une journée; sur quelques un de ces serveurs 91.121.84.XXX, sans surprise vous verrez une perte de paquets, pour ma part je les ai toutes testé et bien d'autres encore, c'est un veritable problème sur leur réseau, Attention ce problème semble toucher les serveurs SoYouStart (mon serveur se trouvant dans le datacentre RBX1 ), Cependant chez OVH, la perte de paquets est nul, donc ne concerne pas les utilisateurs OVH à ma connaissance. Bien comprendre que la pertes de paquets n'a pas forcement pour conséquence de pénaliser tous les services non plus, si vous souhaitez prendre un serveur chez SoYouStart, vous pouvez héberger une seedbox, un serveur de téléchargement, un serveur HTTP, Mail, Proxy, service TCP, etc... La service qui seront impacté par cette pertes de paquets seront: VPN, Serveur de jeu, VOIP, et certainement le streaming. Maintenant vous êtes avertis, et pour ceux qui souhaitent défendre SYS sur les points: VPN, VOIP, Serveur de jeu, montrez moi un mtr ou un graphique munin sur une journée que l'on rigole un peu. Pour ce qui est du support, j'attends pas une réponse par ticket, je téléphone c'est très rapide, support sympathique, mais je leur reproche une chose: . Un autre point à noter en dehors du réseau, le RAID Disque dur/SSD proposé, c'est uniquement logiciel, pas de raid carte mère,donc faites des backups assez souvent soit par ftp soit par nfs proposé pour 2€ Maintenant, vous êtes avertis !

Quand on ouvre un compte chez OVH, il faut savoir qu'il n'existe pas de possibilité de les contacter par téléphone sur des problèmes de facturation. Les mails que vous envoyez quand ils sont traités, le sont par des robots. OVH impose des renouvellements automatiques de ses services avec prélèvement. Si il y a une erreur commise de leur part, nous n'avons trouvé aucun moyen, mis à part les lettres recommandées et l'intervention de l'avocat pour que notre demande soit prise en charge. Pour faire simple, la relation client n'est pas mauvaise, elle est simplement inexistante. OVH a investi dans des relations presse, et a coupé toutes les relations avec ses clients. Nous sommes clients chez eux depuis leur création en 1999, c'est dire si nous sommes fidèle ! Mais là, cela va trop loin.

Mon site a été créé sur OVH par une mai qui est informaticien. J'ai conservé ce site pendant plusieyrs années, mais comme je ne connais rien en mise a jour ou meme entretien du site, j'ai décidé cette année de ne pas renouveler mon abonnement d'hébergement. Au moi de mai ou Juin, j'ai reçu un avis par lequel on m'informait que non abonnement arrivait à expiration le 1 er Juillet, j'ai notifié par retour que je ne désirais pas renouveler cet abonnement. A la surprise, j'ai recu le 1er Juillet une facture pour l'année à venir. Il semblerait que mon mail n'ait pas été envoyé à la bonne adresse. J'ai tenté d'appeler à diverses reprises, lorsque j'ai eu enfin un conseiller, il m'a dit d'appeler le service comptabilité, ce qui était impossible... j'ai fait je ne sais combien de tentatives. J'ai alors proposé de faire une lettre recommandée afin d'expliquer la situation, il m'a été répondu que c'était inutile, que le courrier ne serait pas lu. J'ai 75 ans et je ne suis pas tre douée en informatique. J'ai donc décidé de payer la somme demandée, soit 44 euros environ. J'ai envoyé un paiement Paypal qui a été encaissé. A ma grande surprise quelques jours plus tard je recevais de nouvelles menaces d'OVH qui me demandait à nouveau le paiement de ma dette. Je me suis aperçue que le paiement envoyé avait été effecté a un renouvellement pour l'anné 2019 - 2020. Apres maintes et maintes réclamations et tractations afin que la situation soit revue, mon paiement m'a été remboursé. Je recois aujourd'hui de nouvelles menaces en ces termes : "VOUS N,AVEZ PAS REAGI A NOS PRECEDENTES RELANCES CONCERNANT LE PAIEMENT DE VOTRE FACTURE". Si je n'i pas réagi, qu'est ce que j'ai fait ? On me donne un N° a appeler, le 1007, tout ce que j'ai comme réponse de la machine est si vous avez un numéro de client consultez vos factures. Au revoir... Que faut-il faire ? Je considère cette opération comme une escroquerie devant laquelle je suis complètement démunie. ET COMMENT FAIRE POUR NE PLUS JAMAIS AVOIR AFFAIRE AVEC CET ORGANISME ?

Je trouve que ovh a beaucou à faire pour arriver au niveau de qualités et de transparence qu'il revendique. Aujourd'hui (08/06/2005), nous avons eu encore (une fois de plus) une coupure et pour qu'elle raisons ? Parceque l'equipe technique d'OVH a mis en place une option de leur routeur en production mais celà sans la tester en laboratoire afin de voir si il n'y aurait pas d'autres soucis.
