An Operating System is the software that interacts with the hardware of a PC and serves as the intermediary between the installed applications and the hardware, which includes peripherals such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an app, it sends requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Just like a personal computer, hosting servers also feature an Operating System that functions as a host for all of the software installed on them, which includes script applications or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server plans feature three Linux releases which you may choose from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being totally free, the OSs are very stable and protected and the main reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you can run any kind of app that you would like, because different pieces of software have different requirements when it comes to the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have developed many hundreds of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System which you choose, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to control your website hosting content. Needless to say, if you decide that you need a new OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible plans that will enable you to install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have a large number of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need a different OS later, 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 upgrading it every week with any patches which are available for it.
