An Operating System is the software that communicates with the hardware of a computer and functions as the intermediary between apps 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 communication is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, hosting servers also feature an Operating System that functions as a host for the software installed on them, which includes script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment compared to the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions include three Linux distributions which you may choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being absolutely free, the OSs are really stable and protected and the reason to offer you all 3 of them is to make sure that you can run any kind of application that you would like, since different pieces of software could have different requirements in terms of the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have generated thousands of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to handle your website hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need a different OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server solutions that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems to select from. They are all Linux distributions - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license taxes, but they are also considered to be among the most dependable and secure OSs. We provide three different ones because each of them is backed by a separate community. The packages that you can add on your hosting server are different and this could matter if you want to install some piece of software with specific requirements for the hosting environment. In this light, the web hosting Control Panel which you can select for the dedicated server also depends on the OS that you'll choose. You may choose any of the three Operating Systems during the order procedure, but if necessary, we can always set up the server anew with an alternative one upon your request. As an additional service that you can add to the plan at any moment, we can update the OS regularly so as to keep it as secure as possible.
