Creating an OVHcloud Account
To create an account with OVHcloud, visit our "Log in to OVHcloud" page and click the Create an account button.
An email will be sent to you containing your account information.
Editing Your Contact Information
In this section, we will be editing the contact information for your OVHcloud account. To do so, first, log into the OVHcloud Manager. Click on your name at the top-right of the screen and select My account from the drop-down menu; it will take you to the "My profile" page.
The "My profile" page has your customer code (we will learn more about that in the next section), primary email, secondary email, mailing address, phone number, etc... To update, edit the information, and click Confirm at the bottom of the form to save the changes.
If you are updating your email address, an email with a verification link will be sent to your current email address. Click the verification link and click the Validate this address button to complete the change. You will now need to log in with the new email address listed on your account.
Learning About Your Customer Code
Your customer code is a very useful tool for allowing you or an OVHcloud support agent to access your account. To view your customer code, navigate to the "My profile" page (see instructions in the previous section). Your customer code will be the first piece of information on this page.
There are two main ways to use your customer code. First, you can use your customer code to log into your account in place of your email address, if you forget the email address attached to your account. Secondly, OVHcloud Support will use your customer code as a unique identifier for your account. Having your customer code ready to give to a support agent will help speed up the process; ensuring you receive the support you require in the most expedient manner possible.
Resetting Your Password
From time to time, everyone loses a password and needs to reset it. Should this happen to you, there is an easy way to reset your password. Visit the Log in to OVHcloud page. Under the Login button, click Forgotten your username or password? link. Enter the email address attached to your account and a password reset link will be emailed to you.
