    Although the small VPS I used was reliable and initially good value for money, I became very quickly frustrated with OVH when in December/January I suddenly started getting charged 25% extra which was apparently a planned price increase, yet I cannot find any of the emails they supposedly sent about it.

    No big deal, I thought, I’ll see what else is around and consider moving.

    I found a similar spec VPS but actually a larger storage capacity for less than the original price I was paying with OVH (before the price increase) with DO so I decided it was worth the move. I even added automated back ups and it still costs less than OVH.

    While not entirely their fault, I had additional credit in my OVH account. Essentially I wanted the server to run to the end of the current billing period (which had only just started) and be cancelled and receive a refund for the credit I paid and wasn’t going to use because by that point I’d already moved over to DO.

    This seemed like a reasonable request but they initially refused, much to my annoyance. It’s not even a significant amount of money, but merely the principle of paying for something I wasn’t going to use.

    They eventually agreed.

    Unfortunately their customer support system, and their billing system, is so inefficient that 4 weeks later, despite having two credit notes already with no refund materialising, my credit was eaten into by the next month’s renewal. Worth noting that apparently they can’t just cancel your service on request, you have to just stop paying for it, which I did by cancelling my automatic payment methods. But when you already have credit in your account and they take 4 weeks to reply to no more than 3 messages and still no refund, of course you get billed again and that comes out of your credit balance.

    Anyway, a displeased email and nearly a week later, they finally undid the most recent renewal and refunded me the excess credit.

    I wouldn’t recommend them at all. You get a good VPS and you get what you pay for, but if you need support or help with billing matters they are absolutely useless.

    Pros
    • + price
    • + overall quality
    Cons
    • - support response time
    • - poor communication in case of incidents
    I'm using their VPS (19,51€/m, RAM 4GB, 50GB HDD) and they are good, I have 3/4 low traffic websites and a forum with (monthly):
    7000 active users
    2000 posts
    250 conversations
    400 attachments

    nginx+phpfpm+mariadb

    The websites are really snappy.

    Support is not fast, and sometimes (1 time a year) they got some major problem and I simply had to wait for them to solve it, but for that price, I can't whine too much. I know that to get more stability I need to pay for a dedicated.

    OVH SSD VPS
    3/5, 3 out of 5, reviewed Aug 4, 2017
    Price:
    4.50/5,
    Pros
    • + Good ram for the price
    Cons
    • - low disk space values, poor client area
    I tested OVH last year when I was trying out multiple SSD VPS providers.

    I wasnt keen on their members area.
    (where you view or control your services).
    It was weirdly set out, quite slow to respond, and kept throwing errors.

    Their prices very good for what you get (a lot more ram than average, but less disk space).

    £2.99 for the cheapest (VPS SSD 1), which is really good for 2GB RAM, but only 10 GB Disk.
