Every notebook or desktop or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are installed on your 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 Operating System. On a web server, any app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you can set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server packages include three Linux releases which you may pick from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being absolutely free, the OSs are really stable and protected and the main reason to offer all three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run each application that you'd like, since different pieces of software have different requirements in terms of the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a large community of web developers who have made a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to control your web hosting content. Needless to say, if you decide that you need a different OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more versatile packages which will permit you to install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have thousands of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select 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 which are released for it.
