An Operating System is the software which interacts with the hardware of a PC and serves as the intermediary between all the applications and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an app, it sends requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, hosting servers also feature an Operating System that acts as a host for all the software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, and so on. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you can 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 Web Hosting

We provide as many as 3 different Linux releases for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are among the most stable and reliable OSs out there and we supply all three of them rather than just 1 as we realize that you might want to set up some software with specific requirements with regards to the Operating System it will run on. The latter is because each of the three Operating Systems has a large support community behind it and there are different software programs you may install on the hosting server. Your OS choice will also determine exactly what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS in case you want to use one and for that reason we offer several Control Panels too. In case you decide that you need some other OS, our tech support can quickly wipe the current one and install the one that you want. We also offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you decide to purchase one of our dedicated servers, you shall find three Operating Systems on the order page because we want to give you a larger choice with regard to the system environment on your machine as different apps may have particular requirements. CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian come with different modules developed by their huge support communities, so you can select any of these OSs and enjoy a stable and secure Internet hosting service. Based on your choice, you will also have different Control Panels to choose from. Of course, we can always replace the Operating System in case the one you've selected initially doesn't meet the requirements of the software that you'd like to run. We can also update your OS on a regular basis in order to keep it as risk-free as possible with our Managed Services upgrade package.
