Default OVH or Evolution?

I'm beginning to get to the stage in development where I need to decide what host to use.

I've heard good & bad things about both, but I still view them as trustworthy enough.
OVH has cheap VPS prices, and (I believe) I can host a website & the server.
Both have DDoS protection but here's what I've found out:

Evolution Host
Player slots: 100
MySQL Database: 1 free
Hosted list: 29.99 Euros
DDoS protection: 4.99 Euros
= 44.97 Euros

OVH VPS
Player slots: (idk how to calc that)
MySQL Database: (i think I can host this on the VPS, right?)
Hosted list: 34.99 Euros (from Evolution)
DDoS protection: Included
Specs: https://www.ovh.co.uk/vps/vps-cloud.xml
= 43.09 Euros

I'd see it as a no-brainer to go with OVH in place of a shared server, but I'm new to choosing hosts. Plus, I'd have to pay for a website host with Evolution.

What are your opinions on this?

I believe you're better going with a VPS if you're planning on hosting a website as well as a server.

Thanks for replying. That's what I was thinking.
What do you think about these specifications? Would they be able to hold a website, forum & database and a 50-100 slot server?

Quote:
VPS CLOUD 1
OpenStack KVM
SLA 99.99%
1 vCore(s)
From 3 GHz
2 GB RAM
25 GB
High Availability (Ceph)
And then it offers me Linux vs Windows. What one would be better for the thing I want- does it even matter?

You may need more storage space and ram. The current one I'm using has 30gb ram and 800gb storage but I'm not necessarily sure.

Thanks for the replies guys! I'll be sure to use a VPS.

Also, what's better- Linux or Windows VPS?

I would personally recommend OVH.
You can start with a rather cheap VPS which you can always upgrade at a later time if you feel the need to.
Besides that, you can host multiple items on it. I also recall the ability to be able to customize a firewall.

Customer support was kind, DDoS protection was sufficient and did not experience any issues with it.
You do indeed share/rent a VPS, but I never had any issues with that. They offer what they can provide.


I can't tell you anything about Evolution hosting I'm afraid.

Evolution host just resells managed servers within OVH datacenters if I'm not mistaken. They'll take the responsability of setting up the server and all of that stuff for you, but not worth the extra price if you can do it yourself.

Probably no objectively correct question, but Linux will probably give you the most performance out of your VPS when it comes to hosting
