An Operating System is the software which communicates with the hardware of a computer and functions as the intermediary between apps and the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an application, it transmits requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the contact is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, hosting servers also use an Operating System which functions as a host for any software installed on them, which includes script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etcetera. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment compared to the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

In case you decide to go for one of our virtual private server packages, you will be able to opt for one of the three Linux distributions that we offer for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are among the most well-known and most reliable server OSs available 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 app with precise requirements regarding the packages that must 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've selected. We leave the possibility to replace the server Operating System open, so if you want to use an app that requires an OS different from the one you already have, we can always reinstall the VPS. We can also keep the OS up-to-date on a weekly basis by installing all of the security updates which may be released.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible plans which will enable you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have numerous developers that have created countless software packages that you could install and use on your web server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you register. If you need a different OS later on, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches which are released for it.
