An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer. It controls how your hardware functions, the communication with peripherals like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, as well as the prioritization of applications if several run at once. Each program that is installed on a computer operates by sending requests to the OS for different services by using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be done via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the Operating System is what runs a hosting server along with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application such as a VOIP or a game server. When there're virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS

Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux distributions that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being 100 % free, the OSs are really stable and secure and the key reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run every app that you'd like, as different pieces of software could have different requirements when it comes to the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of developers who have made a large number of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System that you select, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need another OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile packages which will let you install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license costs. All three have numerous developers that have created a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need a new OS subsequently, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches that are available for it.
