In VpsBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 
  • UI looks a bit sad and dated.
  • Some mix of English and French wording.
Quality of Service 

User experience would be improved with:

  • Streamlined and simplified offering (what's the difference between "VPS SSD", "VPS Cloud" and "Public Cloud"?).
  • Better integration between VPS purchases and Control Panel.

OVH Extra Services

In addition to features included in the VPS plan, OVH also offers the following services (possibly for a fee):

Backups   Block Storage   Object Storage Load Balancer   Floating Ips
Teams Datastores Serverless Ddos Protection
