An Operating System is the low-level software which manages a computer. It handles the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, and the prioritization of applications if multiple ones run at once. Every program which is installed on a desktop or a laptop operates by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be performed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the Operating System is what runs a server together with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application such as a VOIP or a game server. If there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages come with three Linux releases that you could pick from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being cost-free, the OSs are extremely stable and protected and the reason to offer the 3 of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run any app that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements for the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a large community of web developers who have created a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to manage your web hosting content. Also, should you decide that you need another OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible packages which will let you install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have a large number of developers that have created numerous software packages that you may 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 some other OS later, it will not 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 every week with all patches that are available for it.
