An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer system. It controls how your hardware operates, the communication with peripheral devices for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between the installed applications, and the prioritization of applications when multiple ones run simultaneously. Each and every program which is installed on a computer system operates by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be achieved using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the Operating System is what commands a hosting server along with all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages come with three Linux distributions which you could pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being cost-free, the OSs are really stable and secure and the main reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run every application that you'd like, as different pieces of software may have different requirements for the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a large community of developers who have produced thousands of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you pick, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to take care of your web hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need another OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible packages which will enable you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have a large number of developers who have created countless software packages that you may install and use on your web server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need a new OS later on, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with any patches that are available for it.
