Each and every desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, along with any applications that are present 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 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 Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions come with three Linux releases which you may select from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and risk-free and the key reason to offer you the three of them is to ensure that you will be able to run each application that you'd like, as different pieces of software could have different requirements with regards to the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of developers who have developed thousands of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to take care of your hosting content. Of course, should you decide that you need a different OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

We offer three Operating Systems with our dedicated server packages - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They're all different Linux distributions and we offer them not only because they are completely free and they will not increase the price of your new web hosting server, but also because they are really stable and secure. Each of them is supported by a vast community of developers, so you'll be given the option to choose from a large number software packages that you could install on your server in case the app that you would like to use has certain requirements. The Operating System will also determine what web hosting Control Panel you can use as the Control Panels that we offer run on particular OSs only and since we would like to provide you with as much versatility as possible, we offer several OSs and multiple Control Panels. If you get a server with a given OS, we can change it upon request in the event that it turns out that you'll need alternative one. We could also keep the OS updated weekly as a part of the additional Managed Services upgrade.
