OVH Customer Reviews

  1. Other than my own mistakes, I’ve never had any noticeable downtime or other issues so I’m very happy with them. The one complaint is when I first signed up their site was not very easy to use. It took me a little bit to find what I needed. Not a big deal, but they should really reorganize it. – Tom Johnson
  2. I have an important business website hosted with OVH and I honestly never give OVH a second thought, which is exactly how web hosting should be. They just provide good, reliable hosting at a fair price. – Sanjeev Kutheri
