Every personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, along with any applications that are 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 server, each application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, which means that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions come with three Linux distributions that you can select from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being free, the OSs are really stable and risk-free and the main reason to offer the three of them is to ensure that you will be able to run each application that you'd like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements in terms of the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a large community of web developers who have generated thousands of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System that you pick, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need a different OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server plans that we offer come with three different Operating Systems to select from. They are all Linux distributions - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license charges, but they’re also known as the most reliable and secure OSs. We provide three different ones because each of them is supported by a separate community. The packages which you could add on your web server are different and this could matter in case you need 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 is also determined by the OS that you will pick. You can choose any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order procedure, but if necessary, we can always set up the server anew with a different one upon your request. As an optional service that you can add to the plan whenever you want, we can update the OS on a regular basis to keep it as secure as possible.
