Slackware is an old, trusted Linux distribution that is favored for its simplicity and efficiency. Born in 1993, Slackware is, in fact, the oldest Linux distro still maintained and upgraded. The distro is also famous for being the basis for the first SUSE Linux versions. Unlike more common distros available today, Slackware is technical through and through. There is no graphic interface for installation and no default desktop environment. Even package dependency resolution is left to the user. These features give admins an unrivaled level of control over all aspects of the operating system, which can be a great asset for administering a server. Like Arch Linux, Slackware uses “build scripts” to allow users to package any software they need into locally optimized binaries.

FAQ | Slackware VPS
What is VPS Hosting?
A Virtual Private Server is a popular hosting solution that falls somewhere between shared hosting and dedicated servers. A VPS shares a physical server infrastructure with a few other instances but since its resources are assigned beforehand, it doesn’t need to compete for them. That means much better performance and higher security compared to shared hosting solutions. A VPS isn’t much less powerful than a dedicated server but it is so much more affordable, making it the best of both worlds. You can read more about VPS hosting and how we do it here.
What is Slackware VPS Hosting?
As the name suggests, it is a VPS with Slackware as the operating system, but it’s also more than that. They are optimized to make the most out of Slackware’s capabilities.
How can I connect to my Slackware VPS?
You can use a remote desktop client like Remmina or TeamViewer to connect to your Slackware VPS via the VNC protocol. Since you will have full root access, you can also use SSH to connect and configure your VPS, but. unlike VNC, SSH only supports a text-based interface, giving you access to the terminal.
What versions of Slackware do you offer?
We offer the latest version of Slackware as well as any version you may need for your VPS, including 14.2, 14.1, and even older releases. You can also ask for a rolling release version, which is less stable but has more updated features.
Will my VPS come with Slackware pre-installed?
If you want your Slackware VPS with the OS already installed, you only need to request it when ordering your VPS. We do, however, recommend that you install it yourself since only you need what components you need, and being able to select them is part of Slackware’s charm.
What’s so great about KVM?
Kernel-based Virtual Machine technology allows us to create virtual servers that perform faster and better, with more flexibility and zero resource contention. That means a high-performance, reliable VPS for you to use as you see fit.
Do you accept PayPal payments?
Of course. In order to make it easier for our customers to buy the VPS solution they want, we support web payment platforms like PayPal and Perfect Money. We also accept all major credit and debit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
I want to remain anonymous. Can I pay with Bitcoin?
How long does it take you to deliver my Slackware VPS?
Almost no time at all! Once payment is made and confirmed, your Slackware VPS will be instantly activated. You’ll receive an automatic email containing information on how to connect to your VPS. Please do not share that information with anyone.
I have paid for a Slackware VPS plan with Bitcoin, but my invoice still reads “unpaid.” Why?
No need for panic. The problem is that it can take a little longer to confirm crypto payments. Your VPS should be activated in 10-15 minutes at the most. If you don’t receive an activation email by then, please contact our 24/7 online support staff.
Do you offer a free Slackware VPS trial?
No, we do not. We do, however, provide a 7-Day Money-Back Guarantee. We’re very proud of our quality of service and confident in our ability to please our customers, so we’re pretty sure you won’t have to use our refund policy. But if you’re not satisfied with our services in any way, you just have to let us know within a week and we’ll give you a full refund.
