Every single PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that interacts with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, together with any apps that are present 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 server, any application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two separate 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 same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

If you select one of our virtual private server packages, you will have 3 different Operating Systems to choose from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux distributions and we offer them instead of offering just a single OS, as the applications that you might want to run on the server may have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each one of the three has some advantages in terms of the available plans that you could later install, but what's common between them is that they're really stable and dependable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel alternatives 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 another one later, our technical support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a matter of minutes. We also offer the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date on a weekly basis.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as 3 different Operating Systems since we want to give you more versatile packages which will let you install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license charges. All three have numerous developers that have created countless software packages that you could install and use on your 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 register. In case you need another OS later, 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 that are available for it.
