Each and every desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that communicates with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, and any apps that are currently installed on the system. Any program input using a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the Operating System. On a web server, any application runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so that you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS

We offer you as many as three 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 available on the market and we provide all three rather than only 1 because we realize that you may want to set up some software that has specific requirements for the Operating System it'll run on. The latter is due to the fact that 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 what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS in case you want to use one and because of this we offer multiple Control Panels as well. Should you decide that you want a different OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the current one and install the one that you would like. We also offer an optional service to keep the OS on your VPS updated weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

We offer three Operating Systems with our dedicated server packages - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are all different Linux distributions and we offer them not only because they are totally free so they will not increase the cost of your new web hosting server, but also because they are outstandingly stable and secure. Each one of them is backed up by a big community of developers, so you'll be given the option to choose from a large number software packages that you may install on your server if the application that you intend to employ has certain requirements. The Operating System will also determine what hosting Control Panel you can use since the Control Panels that we offer are compatible with particular OSs only and since we would like to give you as much adaptability as possible, we offer multiple OSs and multiple Control Panels. If you choose a server with a certain Operating System, we can change it upon request in case it turns out that you'll need alternative one. We will also keep your OS updated weekly as a part of our useful Managed Services upgrade.
