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

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server plans come with three Linux distributions that you can pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and protected and the key reason to offer you the three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run every app that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements regarding the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a large community of web developers who have made thousands of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you select, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to handle your web hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need another OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible plans which will allow you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license fees. All three have a large number of developers who have created countless software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need another OS afterwards, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches which are released for it.
