An Operating System is the basic software which controls a PC. It controls how your hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, as well as the prioritization of apps when several run at the same time. Every program that's installed on a computer functions by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be done through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the web hosting world, the OS is what controls a server and all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server plans include three Linux distributions which you can select from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being totally free, the OSs are very stable and protected and the key reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run every application that you would like, as different pieces of software may have different requirements regarding the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a vast community of web developers who have generated a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible solutions that will permit you to install and run any type of web software whatever its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have a large number of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your 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 register. In case you need a different OS afterwards, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
