An Operating System is the software which interacts with the hardware of a computer and is the intermediary between apps and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run an application, it transmits requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the contact is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Similar to a personal computer, web hosting servers also feature an Operating System which functions as a host for any software installed on them, including script applications or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etcetera. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so you can install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host OS.
Multiple OS in VPS Servers
Our VPS server
solutions feature three Linux distributions that you may choose from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being 100 % free, the OSs are really stable and protected and the main reason to offer all three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run every application that you'd like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements when it comes to the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a vast community of web 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 that you pick, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to handle your website hosting content. Needless to say, should you decide that you need a different OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for max 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 packages which will allow you to install and run any type of web software whatever its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license fees. All three have a large number of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you could install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need some other OS later, it will not be a problem since 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.
