Every single PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which interacts with the hardware equipment, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, and any apps that are currently installed 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 Operating System. On a web server, each and every app runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so that you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

Our virtual private server plans include three Linux releases which you may choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being cost-free, the OSs are really stable and protected and the reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run every app that you'd like, as 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 large community of web developers who have generated thousands of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you pick, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need another OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible plans that will enable you to install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have a large number of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you could install and use on your server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need a different OS subsequently, it will not be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
