We offer a large selection of operating system versions for our Windows vServer. In the following tables you will find all information about the offered operating systems as well as the support status (LTS / EOL) of the individual versions.

Explanation of Terms

End of Life (EOL): If an operating system is EOL, this means that security updates and new functions are no longer provided. The operation of such a version can therefore be described as negligent. There are always new security gaps that need to be remedied promptly. With such a version, this is no longer the case. You should therefore always keep your systems up to date and upgrade if necessary.

Extended Support: For business customers, Microsoft provides important security updates over a longer period of time. However, this does not apply to private customers! This guarantees a total of 10 years of updates from the date of publication.
