Your questions answered
Why buy web hosting in France?
With the continuous development of new technologies and the growing need to stand out online, web hosting has become a vital part of ensuring success for digital visibility strategies. Whether you’re just getting started or the owner of an established business, you can count on our reliable, high-performance web hosting plans to keep your website up-and-running with total security. There are many web hosting options in France and worldwide. Whether you are looking for a dedicated server, virtual private server (VPS), shared hosting packages or cloud hosting services, we offer a wide range of choices to cover every need. It’s important to compare each solution, and see which one is best suited to you and your project. In any case, by opting a French hosting provider, you can ensure that you are as close as possible to your customers, and remain compliant with local regulations.
What are the key elements of web hosting plans in France?
With a web hosting plan, you get a fully-managed environment. When you subscribe to a shared hosting solution, you don't have to worry about the administration of your machine. You get a pre-installed, monitored infrastructure that is kept up-to-date, and you can host your databases, email servers, e-commerce sites and smaller-scale web projects on it. Shared hosting is budget-friendly and easy to manage, which makes it perfect for small projects and users who are getting started online. However, it does not offer dedicated resources, so it is not suitable for projects that require higher performance.
With our web hosting solutions in France, you can securely store your data and your website content (HTML pages, images, videos, audio files, databases). All of our hosting plans are equipped with our anti-DDoS protection, to protect you against denial-of-service attacks. You also get optimal loading speeds for your website pages, and a smooth user experience for web users as a result. Finally, high availability makes your website accessible 24/7, all over the world.
Designed for users without specialist technical knowledge, our France web hosting range is adapted to suit all needs. Our guides and community will give you technical support and guidance if you need it.

What types of hosting does OVHcloud offer?
The best hosting solution for your project is one that your needs as closely as possible in terms of resources, flexibility, technical knowledge and compliance. A project to host a showcase website will not require the same deployment as a high-traffic e-commerce project, for example. It is also important to consider your resource usage before choosing your hosting product. From VPS and dedicated servers to shared servers and cloud servers — at OVHcloud, we always have the right solution for you and your projects.
How do I get one of these solutions?
Looking to subscribe to a web hosting package? It’s a very simple process.
- Create your OVHcloud customer account. You can then access your services from your personal account.
- Choose your domain name. This is the name that will be associated with your project or website. Each domain name is unique — no two websites can have the same one. You can create several domain names, or add subdomains to them in order to specify the nature of your projects.
- Decide which cloud hosting service is best for your project.
Why opt for website hosting in France?
There are several reasons to use a web hosting solution in France. First, you can ensure geographical proximity to your target visitors. By minimising the distance between your web server and users based in France, you can reduce your website’s loading time and remain close to your target market. You can also rest assured that your solution is compliant with local data protection and online advertising laws. Your website will rank highly in search engine results. Finally, you get technical support in French to resolve any problems you may encounter.
Why locate an IP address in France?
An IP address is the ID of a device connected to the internet. It is a series of numbers, and acts as your online identity. If you are hosting a website, your IP address is linked to your domain name, which is easier to memorise and enter into a search engine. With geolocated IP addresses, you can give your users the ultimate browsing experience. Your website is ranked higher on search engines, and you can broaden your reach by optimising your SEO ranking among your target audience.
