An Operating System is the low-level software which manages a computer system. It controls how your hardware behaves, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, as well as the prioritization of apps if multiple ones run concurrently. Any program which is installed on a computer system functions by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be achieved using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the web hosting world, the OS is what commands a hosting server and any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. If there are virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS

We offer you three different Linux releases for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the safest and the most reliable OSs available and we offer all three of them rather than just one as we realize that you may want to set up some software that has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it'll run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a vast support community behind it and there are different software applications you could install on the web hosting server. Your OS selection will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS in case you want to use one and for this reason we offer several Control Panels as well. Should you decide that you need to have another OS, our tech support can quickly wipe the existing one and install the one that you want. In addition, we offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to give you more flexible solutions which will let you install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have lots of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three 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 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 upgrading it every week with all patches which are released for it.
