An Operating System is the software that communicates with the hardware of a PC and serves as the intermediary between apps and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, it sends requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the interaction is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Identical to a personal computer, web hosting servers also have an Operating System which acts as a host for all the software installed on them, including script applications or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be set up on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

Our virtual private server plans feature three Linux releases that you could choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being totally free, the OSs are really stable and secure and the key reason to offer the 3 of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run each app that you would like, since different pieces of software have different requirements when it comes to the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have produced a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to control your web hosting content. Of course, if you decide that you need a new OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for maximum 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 release - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license fees, but they’re also regarded as the most dependable and secure OSs. We supply three different ones for the reason that each of them is backed by a separate community. The packages which you can add on your server are different and this may matter if you need 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 will choose. You may choose any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order procedure, yet if needed, we can always install the server anew with another one upon your request. As an optional service that you may add to the package any time, we can update your OS on a regular basis in order to keep it as secure as possible.
