Every desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, and any applications that are installed on the system. Any program input through 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, each and every app runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

If you decide to buy one of our VPS server packages, you shall be able to choose one of the three Linux distributions that we supply for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They're among the most popular and most stable server OSs available on the market and we offer them in order to give you a choice for the software environment of your machine in case that you need to install some application with precise requirements in terms of the packages that should be present on the web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one of them you could use depends on the OS that you have chosen. We leave the option to replace the server Operating System open, so if you want to use an app that requires an OS different from the one you have, we can always reinstall the VPS. We can also keep the OS up-to-date weekly by installing all of the security updates which may be available.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible packages that will allow you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have thousands of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need some other OS later on, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with any patches that are released for it.
