@alvaroag Thank you again for your complete and fast answers,
-regarding the number of Simultaneous connections to MySQL Database, if the situation will requires, can we upgrade the existing plan to the default value 0 (unlimited) or other specified higher number (200 for exmple) with an extra charge?
- how much Physical Memory is alocated to handle every Personal plan please?

@all Generally speaking, how often do you have a bad experience using a shared plan (Personal/Professional/Performance) with max_user_connections set to 30?

Hello again.
- The personal hosting includes geocache on 3 OVH Points of presence(POP): Paris, Frankfurt, and Newark. That doesn't means your whole site will be saves there, as it will probably be saved in a server in Paris or Roubaix. It's just about how OVH deals to make static files be available faster. That is transparent for the user.
- On the Manager, you can change it to the language you prefer, of all the available ones. However, you may register on the OVH site corresponding to your country. The french site ( ) is intended for registration of people & companies in the following countries:

French Guyana
New Caledonia
French Polynesia
St Pierre and Miquelon
French South Territories
Wallis and Futuna

You can check the whole" OVH site <-> country of residence" relation here:
It is a bit outdated, but it may do. Countries not in the list may purchase through

- Personal Hosting costs €1.99 + VAT per month, so the yearly cost may be 1.99 x 12 = €23.88 + VAT a whole year. If you are from outside the EU, you can request VAT exemption.

Thank you for your feed-back. I have a few more Q's if you don't mind,
- By Servers you reffering to the all 15 Datacentes (13 EU + 2 in Canada) meaning that even if I am in EU automatically I can be allocate to Canada servers?
- If I sign up using the French OVH link, the interface will be in French too / Is there any possibility to change the language for the cPanel, user web panel, etc before the sign up procedure please?
- Could you be so kind and share with me how much is a renewal for Personal Hosting plan for one year in this moment please?

- For hosting you can't choose the server location. OVH will automatically choose the server(from all the servers they provision for hosting). They will also activate 3 geocache POPs to acelerate delivery of static contents, such as images, styles, etc.
- Not really sure about that, but I bet it does run on Linux. All the offered features are unusual on Windows; normally, no Windows hosting provider offers such features, like Python or Perl.
- Nobody really knows if the prices can change in the future. Maybe yes, maybe not. Trying to order a hosting, I see no option to change the contract period length, so it's probable it's not possible; you may have to renew it every year. However, if the prices change at some time, I don't think it would be a significant one.

Dear Sirs,
I have a few pre-order quesions regarding the Personal hosting plan.
- Is there any possibility to choose the EU server location (140 Quai Du Sartel, 59100 Roubaix, France) before or after the order is complete? I didn't find any option for that. Should I use this France site origin link ?

- The Personal hosting plan is running on Linux Operating System?
- How about after the first year, the prices will be different/ can I order for 2 or 3 years in advance at the actual price?
Thank you,
