Each desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, as well as 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, any application runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you can set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting

Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux releases that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being free, the OSs are really stable and protected and the main reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you can run every application that you would like, since different pieces of software have different requirements for the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of developers who have created many hundreds of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to handle your web hosting content. Needless to say, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more flexible solutions which will enable you to install and run any type of web software whatever 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 thousands of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need another OS later on, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. 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.
