An Operating System is the basic software that manages a computer system. It takes care of how your hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, plus the prioritization of apps if multiple ones run at the same time. Every program that is installed on a computer system operates by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS is possible through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what controls a hosting server together with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application such as a VOIP or a game server. When there're virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages come with three Linux distributions which you can choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and safe and the main reason to offer you the 3 of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run every application that you'd like, since different pieces of software could have different requirements regarding the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of developers who have created a large number of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you choose, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to take care of your web hosting content. Also, should you decide that you need a different OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible plans that will permit you to install and run any type of 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 safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license costs. All three have a large number of developers that have created numerous software packages that you can install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need a new OS later, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with all patches that are available for it.
