Every desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are currently installed on your 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 OS. On a server, any application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to purchase one of our virtual private server plans, you will be able to opt for one of the three Linux distributions that we provide for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They're among the most widely used and most reliable server OSs available and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine in case that you wish to install some application with specific requirements with regards to the packages that should be present on the hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one of them you could use will depend on the OS that you've chosen. We leave the chance to replace the server Operating System open, so if you want to use an app that requires an OS different from the one you have, we can always re-install the VPS. We can also keep the OS up-to-date on a weekly basis by installing any security updates which may be released.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible plans which will allow you to install and run any type of web software whatever its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have a large number of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you could install and use on your server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a new OS subsequently, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with any patches which are available for it.
