VPS Operating Systems

Pick from a variety of operating systems to create your perfect setup

CentO icon


If you’re moving to a VPS from one of our shared web hosting or reseller hosting packages, CentOS is a great choice. Not only is a CentOS virtual server renowned for its stability, but anything you host on our shared platform is easy to transfer across with full compatibility.

Ubuntu icon


If you run Ubuntu on your computer at home, then an Ubuntu virtual server is a logical step to take as the web version is similar to that on your local machine. Easy for newcomers to Linux to pick up, Ubuntu is one of the most popular Linux operating systems and there are plenty of support communities online if you need help.

Debian icon


Debian is a versatile yet stable operating system which is highly regarded by the Linux security community. Using Debian as your OS gives you the freedom to explore a wide range of frameworks and develop for a wide range of applications.

Windows Server icon

Windows Server

Our VPS are available with Windows Server 2008 R2 (web and standard editions available) and Windows Server 2012 R2, making them ideal for designers and developers using MS SQL, ASP.NET and .NET.

Fedora icon


If you’re looking to be more experimental, a Fedora virtual server will meet your hosting needs. Although it’s very similar to Red Hat and CentOS in nature, Fedora allows you to use cutting-edge software releases, opening up more opportunities for experimenting.

OpenSUSE icon


An OpenSUSE VPS creates a stable environment for hosting your websites and projects. As well as being user-friendly, OpenSUSE prioritises collaboration features and easy to use development and packaging processes, making it a great solution for application developers and group projects.

Frequently asked questions

Find quick answers to the most commonly asked questions

1. What are Virtual Private Servers (VPS)?

A VPS is a virtual machine set up on a group server. When you order one, we set up a copy of your choice of operating system onto that server, and assign it RAM and hard drive space. You have full control over your space on our server.​

Return to questions

2. What is included with my VPS?

Every virtual server comes with guaranteed RAM, RAID mirrored hard disks, root-level access, out-of-band and VNC console access, and a 100Mbit direct Internet connection, as well as our standard 99.99% service level agreement.

Return to questions

3. What type of hardware do you use?

We use the latest generation of Dell PowerEdge servers, which are optimised for virtualisation. In each server, there are 12 x 10k SAS disks for primary storage in a RAID-10 array, providing full storage redundancy and high-speed access to your data. There is a top-end PERC RAID card with battery-backed cache to ensure the integrity of your data without bottlenecks, and 12 Intel Xeon cores designed for heavy workloads. And there is 192GB of RAM to accommodate the present and future memory needs of each virtual server.

Return to questions

4. What level of support do I get with a virtual server?

We provide full hardware and network level support – ensuring that you are always connected and any hardware issues are immediately rectified. Our VPS packages are sold as unmanaged, and we do not provide support on day-to-day management of your server, installation of software upgrades, rectification of OS-level faults, bugs in server software, and other such issues.
We do offer system administrator support in instances where you are not able to resolve such matters independently, and charge you accordingly for the work in question. Please contact our Customer Services team for more information.
