Each notebook or desktop or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that interacts with the hardware equipment, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, along with any apps that are installed on the 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 Operating System. On a web server, each and every application runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid 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 separate Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, which means that you can set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

If you select one of our virtual private server packages, you will have as many as three different Operating Systems to select from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux distributions and we offer them instead of offering just one OS, since the apps that you might want to run on the server may have specific requirements for the software environment. Each of the three has some pros regarding the available plans that you could later on install, but what is common between them is that they are really secure and reliable and have huge communities which support them. The hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, in order to give you more flexibility. If you order the virtual server with one OS and you need a different one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in just a few minutes. We also offer you the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date on a weekly basis.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible packages that will enable you to install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have a large number of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need a different OS subsequently, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches that are released for it.
