Every single desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, as well as any applications that are currently installed on your system. Any program input through 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, any app runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so that you can set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

If you select one of our VPS server packages, you'll have as many as 3 different Operating Systems to pick from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux distributions and we offer them rather than offering just a single OS, as the applications that you may want to run on the server could have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each of these three has some advantages in terms of the available plans that you could eventually install, but what is common between them is that they're really secure and reliable and have huge communities which support them. The internet hosting Control Panel choices for the VPS accounts depend on your OS choice, in order to provide you with more flexibility. When you order the virtual server with one OS and you need a different one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a matter of minutes. We also offer the option to keep the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile solutions which will let you install and run any type of web software whatever its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have lots of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your web server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need a new OS subsequently, 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.
