Each and every personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that communicates with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, together with any apps that are present on the system. Any program input using a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the OS. On a server, every single app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so that you can set up a different software environment on the very same machine.
Multiple OS in VPS Hosting
Our virtual private server packages include three Linux releases that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and risk-free and the main reason to offer you the 3 of them is to make sure that you can run every app that you'd like, as different pieces of software have different requirements when it comes to the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have produced a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you choose, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to handle your hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for max 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 offer you more versatile plans which will let you install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have a large number of developers that have created countless software packages that you can install and use on your web hosting 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. If you need a new OS afterwards, 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 every week with any patches that are available for it.
