An Operating System is the software which interacts with the hardware of a computer system and serves as the intermediary between the installed applications and the hardware, including peripherals such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run an application, it sends requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the interaction is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, web hosting servers also have an Operating System which serves as a host for all of the software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, and so on. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you can install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment compared to the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages include three Linux distributions which you can choose from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being totally free, the OSs are extremely stable and secure and the key reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run any kind of app that you'd like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements when it comes to the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a large community of web developers who have developed thousands of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to manage your hosting content. Of course, should you decide that you need a different OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile plans which will let you install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license charges. All three have lots of developers that have created numerous software packages that you can install and use on your web server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need some other OS afterwards, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches which are available for it.
