Which Microsoft licenses do you offer?

The most used Microsoft-server licenes can be ordered easily from your control panel or from this page. After placing your order, the required license keys and ISO's are immediately available in your control panel. Below you'll find an overview of the licenses we offer. In this article you'll find a guide on how to add the Microsoft software licenses to your VPS.


Operating System:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016


  • Office 2016 Standard & Professional - license per user
  • Remote Desktop Services - license per user
  • MS SQL 2016 Web, Standard & Enterprise - license per 2 cores
  • Exchange 2016 Basic, Standard & Enterprise - license per user


License per user vs per core:

Microsoft distinguishes its licenses between licenses per user and per 2 CPU cores:

  • Per user: The price of the license is calculated per person using the corresponding software.
  • Per 2 cores: The price of the license is calculated for every 2 CPU cores your VPS has. An X8 (which has 4 CPU cores) using MS SQL 2016 standard for example would cost €350,- per month (2 x €175 per 2 cores).
