Operating systems suited to the web

The OVH virtual private servers are available with operating systems and distributions that have largely been optimised by our teams for the web.

  • Customised to improve the deployment time and reliability of web services.
  • Secured to reduce the risk of security vulnerabilities.
  • Pre-configured to improve the performance of critical services.

The Cloud range also gives you access to an optional Windows installation.

CMS and a ready-to-use e-commerce solution

The OVH VPS can also be delivered with pre-installed web applications, optimised in collaboration with SMILE.

The latest version of the most popular applications in a Debian 8-9 environment, optimised for the web.

Direct access to the Control Panel, FTP and phpMyAdmin so you can customise your websites as soon as your server is set up.

Full development environments

You get root (administrator) access to your VPS, where you can host all kinds of applications (JAVA, Ruby on Rails, Python...).

To deploy your development platforms more quickly, OVH provides you with full stacks optimised for the most popular environments. LAMP is already being offered, and will soon be joined by Python, Ruby, etc...
