Each and every notebook or desktop or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are installed on your system. Any program input using 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 specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS

We offer you as many as 3 different Linux distributions for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the safest and the most reliable OSs you can get and we offer all three of them rather than just 1 as we realize that you may want to set up some software which has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it'll run on. The latter is because each of the three Operating Systems has a vast support community behind it and there're different software programs you could install on the web server. Your OS selection will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS in case you want to use one and that's why we offer several Control Panels too. If you ever decide that you need to have some other OS, our tech support can quickly wipe the current one and install the one that you need. In addition, we offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile plans that will let you install and run any web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most reliable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have thousands of developers that have created numerous software packages that you may 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 choose when you sign up. In case you need a new OS subsequently, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches which are available for it.
