FreeBSD VPS Hosting
We offer FreeBSD VPS hosting on KVM virtualization.
FreeBSD is a free Unix-like operating system descended from Research Unix via the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD). Although for legal reasons FreeBSD cannot use the Unix trademark, it is a direct descendant of BSD, which was historically also called “BSD Unix” or “Berkeley Unix”. The first version of FreeBSD was released in 1993, and today FreeBSD is the most widely used open-source BSD distribution, accounting for more than three-quarters of all installed systems running open-source BSD derivatives.
FreeBSD has similarities with Linux, with two major differences in scope and licensing: FreeBSD maintains a complete operating system, i.e. the project delivers kernel, device drivers, userland utilities and documentation, as opposed to Linux delivering a kernel and drivers only and relying on third-parties for system software; and FreeBSD source code is generally released under a permissive BSD license as opposed to the copyleft GPL used by Linux.
FreeBSD on BHost
We offer full virtual machines using KVM virtualization. Our service is unmanaged. This means we support your VPS to the extent that it is online, connected to the internet and available for use, but we don’t provide support for operating-system specific matters and we don’t install or support specific software.
FreeBSD VPS hosting is available at our London, Amsterdam and Fremont, CA locations.
FreeBSD is particularly known for its security.
Other Operating Systems
If you need a different operating system, we’ll be happy to help. We offer a mixture of Linux, Windows and BSD options. Generally speaking if an OS is installable from an ISO we can add it to our available distros. Please contact sales@BHost.net with your requirements.
