An Operating System is the low-level software which manages a computer system. It controls the way your hardware operates, the communication with peripherals for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, and the prioritization of apps in case multiple ones run concurrently. Any program that's installed on a desktop or a notebook functions by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be performed through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what commands a web hosting server as well as all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application such as a VOIP or a game server. In case there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server packages include three Linux distributions that you could pick from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being totally free, the OSs are very stable and protected and the key reason to offer you the 3 of them is to make sure that you can run any kind of app that you'd like, since different pieces of software have different requirements with regards to the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of developers who have generated many hundreds of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to control your hosting content. Of course, should you decide that you need some other OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile solutions which will let you install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license costs. All three have a large number of developers who have created countless software packages that you may install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need some other OS later, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches which are released for it.
