An Operating System is the fundamental software that controls a computer system. It takes care of the way your hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, as well as the prioritization of applications in case multiple ones run simultaneously. Each program which is installed on a laptop or a desktop operates by sending requests to the OS for different services using an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be done using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the Operating System is what commands a web server together with all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. If there are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux releases which you can select from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being cost-free, the OSs are very stable and secure and the key reason to offer you all three of them is to ensure that you can run any application that you'd like, since different pieces of software have different requirements in terms of the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of web developers who have made many hundreds of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to handle your hosting content. Of course, in case you decide that you need another OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an additional 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 as we want to offer you more flexible packages that will allow you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need a new OS later on, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with all patches that are available for it.
