An Operating System is the software which communicates with the hardware of a PC and serves as the intermediary between the installed applications and the hardware, including peripherals such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, it transfers requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Identical to a personal computer, web servers also feature an Operating System which functions as a host for all the software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, and many others. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so it is possible to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast to the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages include three Linux releases that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being 100 % free, the OSs are very stable and protected and the primary reason to offer all 3 of them is to make sure that you can run any application that you would like, because different pieces of software may have different requirements about the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have generated many hundreds of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to take care of your website hosting content. Of course, if you decide that you need some other OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

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