Each desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, along with any applications that are installed on the 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, every single app runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. When a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions feature three Linux releases which you could pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being absolutely free, the OSs are very stable and secure and the reason to offer you the 3 of them is to make sure that you can run any app that you would like, because different pieces of software have different requirements regarding the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a huge community of developers who have generated a large number of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to handle your hosting content. Needless to say, should you decide that you need some other OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more versatile packages which will let you install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most reliable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license fees. All three have thousands of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your 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 register. If you need another OS afterwards, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches that are released for it.
