Each desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which communicates with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, and any applications that are present on your 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 web 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, called guest OS and host OS, so that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

We offer you three different Linux releases for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the most stable and reliable OSs on the market and we provide all 3 rather than just 1 since we realize that you may want to install some software which has specific requirements with regards to the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is because each of the three Operating Systems has a huge support community behind it and there are different software applications you can install on the server. Your OS choice will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS if you want to use one and that is why we offer several Control Panels too. Should you decide that you want a different OS, our tech support can quickly wipe the current one and install the one that you want. In addition, we offer an optional service to keep the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile plans which will permit you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have lots of developers that have created countless software packages that you may install and use on your web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you sign up. In case you need a different OS later on, it will not 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 all patches which are released for it.
