Every single notebook or desktop or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which communicates with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are present on the 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, every single app runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called 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 Hosting

We offer as many as 3 different Linux distributions for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the most stable and reliable OSs out there and we supply all three of them rather than just one since we realize that you might want to install some software with specific requirements with regards to the Operating System it will run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a vast support community behind it and there're various software applications you may install on the hosting server. Your OS choice will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS if you wish to use one and that's why we offer multiple Control Panels as well. If you ever decide that you need to have some other OS, our technical support can quickly wipe the present one and set up the one that you need. In addition, we offer an optional service to maintain the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated server solutions that we offer come with three different Operating Systems to choose from. They are all Linux distributions - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license charges, but they are also known as the most stable and secure OSs. We offer three different ones as each of them is supported by a different community. The packages which you could add on your hosting server are different and this may matter if you want to install some piece of software with particular requirements about the hosting environment. In this light, the internet hosting Control Panel that you can select for the dedicated server is also determined by the OS that you will pick. You can pick any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order process, yet if needed, we can always install the server anew with another one upon your request. As an additional service that you can add to the plan any time, we can update your OS on a regular basis to keep it as secure as possible.
