Every single PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, and any apps that are installed on your 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 Operating System. On a server, any application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes 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 different Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you can set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

In case you choose one of our virtual private server solutions, you will have as many as 3 different Operating Systems to choose from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They are all Linux distributions and we offer them rather than offering just a single OS, as the apps that you might choose to run on the server may have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each of these three has certain advantages in terms of the available plans that you can eventually install, but what is common between them is that they are really secure and dependable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your OS choice, in order to provide you with more flexibility. If you order the virtual server with one OS and you need a different one later, our technical support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a matter of minutes. We also offer the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date on a weekly basis.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible plans that will enable you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have a large number of developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you may install and use on your server. We also offer three 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 a different OS subsequently, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
