Changing the Operating System on my Self-Managed VPS


NOTE: Changing the Operating System on your VPS will require a rebuild - this will delete all data on the server!

Step 1
- Log into your Client Area and select Active Services.

If the new OS requires payment, you will need to go through the checkout first before the new operating system is installed.
