Bare Operating systems boosted for the web

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

  • Customized to improve the deployment time and stability of web services
  • Secured to reduce the risk of exposure to attacks
  • Pre-configured to improve the performance of critical services

The Cloud range also gives you access to a Windows installation available as an option.

CMS and a turn-key e-commerce solution

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

  • The latest version of the most popular applications in a web-optimized Debian 7 environment
  • Direct access to the Control Panel, FTP and phpMyAdmin so you can customize your websites as soon as your server is installed

Comprehensive development environments

You get root (admin) access to your VPS so you can host any type of application on it (JAVA, Ruby on Rails, Python, etc.).

To make deploying your development platforms even faster, the OVH teams provide you with comprehensive optimized stacks for the most popular environments. LAMP is already offered, and more environments, such as Python and Ruby, will follow soon.
