Each and every PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, and any apps that are present on your system. Any program input through 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 specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

In case you choose one of our VPS server packages, you'll have as many as 3 different Operating Systems to select from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux distributions and we offer them rather than offering just a single OS, as the apps that you may wish to run on the server may have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each one of the three has some pros in terms of the available plans that you could later install, but what's common between them is the fact that they're very secure and dependable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your OS choice, in order to provide you with more flexibility. In case you order the virtual server with one OS and you need a different one later, our technical support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a matter of minutes. We also offer you the option to keep the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

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 versatile packages that will allow you to install and run any type of web software regardless of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license costs. All three have numerous developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you can install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a different 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 all patches which are available for it.
