Each personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which communicates with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any applications that are currently installed on the system. Any program input through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the OS. On a server, each and every application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

We provide as many as 3 different Linux distributions for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the most stable and reliable OSs you can get and we provide all 3 rather than only 1 as we realize that you may want to install some software that has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is because each of the three Operating Systems has a vast support community behind it and there're different software applications you could install on the web hosting server. Your OS selection will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS in case you want to use one and for this reason we offer multiple Control Panels as well. In case you decide that you want another OS, our technical support can quickly wipe the existing one and install the one that you need. In addition, we offer an optional service to keep the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible solutions that will let you install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license fees. All three have a large number of developers who have created countless software packages that you may install and use on your web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need a new OS later on, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with all patches that are available for it.
