... the best technology available for all ...


OVH offers services related to the hosting of websites and generally, a way of showing a unique presence on the Internet.
The customer demand and the available technologies are the basis for the evolution of OVH since its establishment in 1999.

To ensure that we have the best prices, OVH has always privileged the internal development. Our teams of engineers are in direct contact with the telephone and e-mail support in order to be closer to the customer's needs. Thus, the services offered by OVH on a day by day basis, are simpler to use and benefit from increased performance. This is all done while remaining at the cutting edge of the technologies.

Within a few years, OVH became the most important web hosting company in France *. It is a reflection of our hosting in terms of the richness of the offer, its good value for money and the rate of availability of hosted sites. For several years, OVH has met the highest growth of all French registrars. A powerful WEB management tool (Manager), easy-to-use interface, outsourced (for resellers). All these reflecting the richness of the offers enabling us to meet all kinds of needs.
