Each personal computer or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any applications 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 Operating System. On a web server, every single app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.
Multiple OS in VPS Servers
Our VPS server packages include three Linux releases which you can pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being free, the OSs are really stable and risk-free and the reason to offer the three of them is to ensure that you will be able to run any app that you'd like, since different pieces of software have different requirements regarding the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a huge community of web developers who have created many hundreds of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you choose, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to control your website hosting content. Of course, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer come with 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. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have lots of developers that have created numerous software packages that you may install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need another OS afterwards, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches which are released for it.
