An Operating System is the software which interacts with the hardware of a computer system and is the intermediary between all the applications and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an application, it transmits requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Identical to a personal computer, web servers also have an Operating System that acts as a host for any software installed on them, including script applications or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, and many others. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you can install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast to the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

Our virtual private server packages come with three Linux distributions that you may choose from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being absolutely free, the OSs are really stable and safe and the key reason to offer the 3 of them is to ensure that you will be able to run any kind of app that you'd like, since different pieces of software have different requirements for the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a large community of web developers who have made many hundreds of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to handle your website hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need a new OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated server solutions that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems to pick from. They are all Linux distributions - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license fees, but they’re also known as the most dependable and safe OSs. We offer three different ones as each of them is supported by a separate community. The packages that you can add on your web server are different and this may matter in case you want to install some piece of software with particular requirements about the hosting environment. In this light, the hosting Control Panel that you can select for the dedicated server is also determined by the Operating System that you'll select. You may choose any of the three Operating Systems during the order process, however if necessary, we can always set up the server anew with an alternative one upon your request. As an optional service that you could add to the package at any moment, we can update your OS regularly in order to keep it as secure as possible.
