An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer system. It takes care of the way your hardware operates, the communication with peripherals including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, plus the prioritization of applications if several run concurrently. Every program that's installed on a PC works by sending requests to the OS for different services by using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be done through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what controls a hosting server along with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

Our virtual private server packages come with three Linux distributions which you may choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being absolutely free, the OSs are really stable and risk-free and the reason to offer you the three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run each application that you'd like, because different pieces of software may 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 developed thousands of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to handle your web hosting content. Needless to say, in case you decide that you need a different OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more versatile plans that will let you install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have lots of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your server. We also offer three internet 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 won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. 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.
