To launch WooCommerce on OVHcloud, you can follow these steps:

  1. Choose a suitable OVHcloud hosting plan: OVHcloud offers a range of hosting solutions, such as shared hosting, VPS, or dedicated servers. Choose a plan that meets your requirements and budget.
  2. Set up your domain: If you don't have a domain registered yet, you can purchase one through OVHcloud or use an existing domain. Configure the domain to point to your OVHcloud hosting account.
  3. Install WordPress: WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin, so you need to install WordPress first. OVHcloud provides a one-click WordPress installation option for easier setup.
  4. Configure WordPress: Log in to your WordPress admin area and configure the basic settings. This includes setting up your preferred language, permalink structure, and general configurations.
  5. Install the WooCommerce plugin: In the WordPress dashboard, go to "Plugins" -> "Add New." Search for "WooCommerce" and click on "Install Now" for the WooCommerce plugin. Once installed, click on "Activate" to activate the plugin.
  6. Configure WooCommerce: After activation, WooCommerce will prompt you to run the setup wizard. Follow the wizard steps to configure basic settings like currency, payment gateways, shipping options, and tax settings.
  7. Customize your online store: Now you can start customizing your store by selecting a theme, adding products, creating categories, setting up payment options, and configuring shipping methods. You can also install additional WooCommerce extensions to enhance the functionality of your online store.
  8. Test your store: Perform thorough testing to ensure that everything is working correctly. Place test orders, check payment gateways, and make sure all the necessary features are functioning properly.
  9. Secure your website: Implement security measures like using an SSL certificate, implementing strong passwords, regularly updating WordPress and WooCommerce, and using security plugins to protect your website from potential threats.
  10. Optimize performance: Consider implementing caching solutions, optimizing images, and enabling content delivery networks (CDN) to enhance the performance of your WooCommerce store. This will help ensure a smooth shopping experience for your customers.


By following these steps, you should be able to successfully launch WooCommerce on OVHcloud and start selling products online.
