    I wonder how to install Windows (10 or server) to a Linux VPS

    The reason is not paying extra monthly money for Windows to hosting provider.

    If installing windows will be hard, I'm planing to buy 50 Gb RAM Ubuntu server and install it a Windows virtual box in it.

    So I'll make a remote connection to Ubuntu VPS, run Windows virtual box in it

    Any thoughts?

    A Linux VPS will not allow you to operate virtualbox because most of them are on OpenVZ. You need to buy a cheap server for $20 or $30 a month that is an actual dedicated server and on that you can put multiple OSes in virtual machines. You could run wine on the linux VPS but forget about a VPS in a cheap VPS.

    It's very possible to install VirtualBox on an Ubuntu. Here is the video:


    I don't know if something different for a Ubuntu Linux VPS or remote connection but I don't think that will be a problem.

    It is not possible to install the Windows OS on the Linux server. Both are totally different things. You should have the windows server for the working of windows os.
