An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer. It controls how your hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, and the prioritization of apps in case multiple ones run at the same time. Any program which is installed on a PC functions by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS is possible via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the OS is what commands a web 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. When there're virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions include three Linux releases which you could pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being cost-free, the OSs are extremely stable and secure and the primary reason to offer all 3 of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run every app that you would like, since different pieces of software could have different requirements regarding the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a large community of web developers who have produced many hundreds of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to manage your hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need a different OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server packages that we offer come with three different Operating Systems to pick from. They are all Linux release - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license taxes, but they are also known as the most stable and safe OSs. We provide three different ones because each of them is supported by a separate community. The packages which you could add on your hosting server are different and this could matter in case you need to install some piece of software with particular requirements regarding the hosting environment. In this light, the web hosting Control Panel which you can select for the dedicated server is also determined by the Operating System that you'll choose. You may choose any of the three Operating Systems during the order procedure, however if necessary, we can always install the server anew with another one upon your request. As an optional service that you could add to the package at any time, we can update your OS on a regular basis so as to keep it as secure as possible.
