An Operating System is the fundamental software that manages a computer system. It controls the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, as well as the prioritization of applications if multiple ones run at the same time. Each program that is installed on a PC works by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be achieved through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting field, the Operating System is what commands a web hosting server as well as 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're virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

We provide as many as 3 different Linux releases for the Operating System of our VPS servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the safest and the most reliable OSs out there and we offer all 3 instead of only 1 since we realize that you might want to set up some software with 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 huge support community behind it and there are different software programs you may install on the server. Your OS choice will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS if you want to use one and because of this we offer several Control Panels too. If you ever decide that you want another OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the existing one and install the one that you need. We also offer an optional service to maintain the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as 3 different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile plans which will permit you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have thousands of 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 depends on the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need some other OS later, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
