An Operating System is the fundamental software which manages a computer system. It takes care of how the hardware functions, the communication with peripherals like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between the installed applications, plus the prioritization of apps if several run at once. Each and every program which is installed on a computer functions by sending requests to the OS for various services via an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be achieved using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the Operating System is what controls a web hosting server along with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application such as a VOIP or a game server. In case there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages feature three Linux releases that you can select from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and secure and the primary reason to offer the three of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run every app that you would like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements for the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to manage your web hosting content. Of course, should you decide that you need some other OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server packages that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems to select from. They are all Linux release - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license charges, but they’re also known as the most dependable and safe OSs. We offer three different ones for the reason that each of them is backed by a separate community. The packages that you can add on your web server are different and this could matter if you want to install some piece of software with specific requirements regarding the hosting environment. In this light, the internet hosting Control Panel that you can select for the dedicated server also depends on the OS that you will pick. You can select any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order procedure, but if necessary, we can always set up the server once again with an alternative one upon your request. As an additional service that you may add to the package any time, we can update your OS regularly so as to keep it as risk-free as possible.
