Each and every desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, and any apps that are installed on the system. Any program input using 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, every single application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

We offer as many as three different Linux releases for the Operating System of our VPS servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the most stable and reliable OSs out there and we provide all three of them rather than only one since we realize that you may want to set up some software that has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a huge support community behind it and there are various software packages you could install on the web server. Your OS selection will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS in case you wish to use one and for that reason we offer several Control Panels too. In the event you decide that you need to have some other OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the present one and install the one that you want. In addition, we offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more flexible plans which will let you install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license charges. All three have a large number of developers that have created numerous software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need some other OS afterwards, 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 updating it on a weekly basis with any patches that are available for it.
