Each PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that interacts with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any applications that are currently 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 OS. On a web server, every single application runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. If a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, named 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 Web Hosting

In case you select one of our virtual private server packages, you'll have 3 different Operating Systems to select from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux distributions and we offer them rather than offering just a single OS, since the apps that you may want to run on the server could have specific requirements for the software environment. Each one of the three has some pros in terms of the available plans that you can eventually install, but what is common between them is that they are very stable and reliable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel choices for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, so as to provide you with more flexibility. When you order the virtual server with one OS and you need another one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a couple of minutes. We also offer the option to keep the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more versatile packages that will let you install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have lots of developers who have created numerous software packages that you can install and use on your server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need some other OS later, it won't be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches that are released for it.
