Every notebook or desktop or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any apps 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, every single application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard website 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, referred to as 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 Hosting

In case you pick one of our virtual private server packages, you'll have 3 different Operating Systems to choose from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They are all Linux releases and we offer them rather than offering just one OS, as the apps that you may want to run on the server may have specific requirements about the software environment. Each one of these three has certain pros regarding the available plans that you may later install, but what's common between them is that they are really stable and reliable and have large communities which support them. The internet hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, in order to give you more flexibility. When you order the virtual server with one OS and you need another one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in just a few minutes. We also offer you the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more versatile solutions which will allow you to install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have a large number of developers that have created countless software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need another OS afterwards, it will not be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches that are released for it.
