At Hostinger, we have two types of VPS. You can check the information below corresponding to your hosting, either VPS Hosting or Minecraft Hosting.

VPS Hosting

Right after purchasing your VPS and during setup, you will be presented with several Linux-based operating system templates, some of them with pre-installed control panels. The installation will be done automatically in just a few clicks!

If you have already selected an OS template, you can also change it at any time by following this guide: How to Change the Operating System for Your VPS.

Changing your current template will permanently delete all the content of your VPS - make sure to download backups beforehand!
