An Operating System is the software which communicates with the hardware of a computer and serves as the intermediary between the installed applications and the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an app, it transmits requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, web servers also have an Operating System that acts as a host for the software installed on them, which includes script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, and so on. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you can install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast to the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

We provide as many as three different Linux distributions for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the most stable and reliable OSs you can find and we offer all three instead of only 1 because we realize that you might want to install some software with specific requirements with regards to the Operating System it'll run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a large support community behind it and there are various software applications you can install on the web server. Your OS choice will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS in case you would like to use one and for that reason we offer several Control Panels as well. Should you decide that you need a different OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the present one and install the one that you need. 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 3 different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible packages which will enable you to install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have numerous developers that have created numerous 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 select when you register. If you need some other OS afterwards, 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 upgrading it every week with any patches which are available for it.
