Each and every PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, along with any apps that are installed 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 web server, each app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. If a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you will be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.
Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server
plans come with three Linux releases which you could select from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being cost-free, the OSs are really stable and safe and the reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you can run every application that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements about the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a large community of developers who have generated thousands of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to handle your website hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need another OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The dedicated servers
we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more versatile packages which will allow you to install and run any type of web software regardless of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have lots of developers who have created numerous software packages that you can install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need some other OS afterwards, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with all patches that are released for it.
