Choosing between available operating systems for VPS at Hostinger

Updated this week

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

VPS hosting

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

If you have already selected an OS template, you can also change it at any time.

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