An Operating System is the fundamental software which manages a PC. It takes care of the way your hardware functions, the communication with peripherals for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, along with the prioritization of apps in case multiple ones run at once. Each program which is installed on a desktop or a laptop functions by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be achieved using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the OS is what commands a web server along with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application such as a VOIP or a game server. When there are virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

If you pick one of our VPS server packages, you'll have 3 different Operating Systems to pick from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux releases and we offer them rather than offering just one OS, as the apps that you might choose to run on the server could have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each of these three has certain advantages regarding the available plans that you may eventually install, but what's common between them is the fact that they're very stable and reliable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, so as to provide you with more flexibility. In case you order the virtual server with one OS and you need another one later, our technical support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in just a few minutes. We also offer you the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible packages which will permit you to install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created numerous 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 is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need another OS afterwards, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
