An Operating System is the software that communicates with the hardware of a computer system and functions as the intermediary between all the applications and the hardware, including peripherals such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, it transmits requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the interaction is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, web servers also feature an Operating System that serves as a host for any software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etcetera. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you'll be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast to the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

We provide as many as three 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 find and we supply all three of them instead of only one as we realize that you may want to set up some software with specific requirements with regards to the Operating System it'll run on. The latter is because each of the three Operating Systems has a huge support community behind it and there're various software applications you could install on the web hosting server. Your OS choice will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS if you wish to use one and that is why we offer several Control Panels as well. If you ever decide that you want a different OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the current one and set up the one that you'd like. We also offer an optional service to keep the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile solutions which will allow you to install and run any web software whatever its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and secure 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 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 some other OS subsequently, it won't be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches which are released for it.
