Each and every personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that communicates with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are present on your system. Any program input using a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the Operating System. On a server, each app runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.
Multiple OS in VPS Hosting
In case you choose to acquire one of our virtual private server
plans, you shall be able to select one of the three Linux distributions which we offer for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They're among the most preferred and most stable server OSs on the market and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine in case that you need to install some app with precise requirements in terms of the packages that must be present on the hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one of them you'll be able to use will depend on the OS that you have picked. We leave the option to replace the server Operating System open, so when you want to use software that requires an OS different from the one you already have, we can always reinstall the VPS. In addition, we can keep the OS up-to-date weekly by installing any security updates that may be available.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting
The dedicated servers
that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible plans which will allow you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have thousands of developers who have created countless software packages that you could install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three 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 afterwards, it won't be a problem since 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 available for it.
