OVH VPS service is divided into 2 types: VPS Classic and VPS Cloud. For VPS Classic, there are 4 plans available named from 1-4. These plans are affordable and easy-to-manage. Each of them comes with 100Mbps bandwidth for the first 10,000 GB data transferred per month. The information about other resources is as follows.
- VPS Classic 1: Priced at $2.99/mo, including 1 CPU core, 1 GB RAM and 10 GB disk space.
- VPS Classic 2: Priced at $6.99/mo, including 2 CPU cores, 2 GB RAM and 25 GB disk space.
- VPS Classic 3: Priced at $10.99/mo, including 3 CPU cores, 4 GB RAM and 50 GB disk space.
- VPS Classic 4: Priced at $21.99/mo, including 4 CPU cores, 8 GB RAM and 100 GB disk space.
The largest advantage of the VPS Classic plans is the affordable price. You can purchase a flexible and scalable VPS with less than $10/mo. Another edge is the security ensured by OVH automatic anti-DDoS mitigation. Thanks to the excellent Internet capacity, OVH can handle most DDoS attacks without affecting your server.
However, the limitations of VPS Classic are also obvious. Firstly, the plans are not allowed for Windows hosting. Secondly, the servers are all located in a Canada data center instead of a US-based one. Thirdly, no web hosting control panel is included for free. And fourthly, you have to back up your server manually all the time as the company performs backups once a week.
Therefore, the affordable VPS Classic is only suitable for Linux experts who need a platform for development or testing.
