Every desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, together with any applications that are currently installed on the 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 server, every single application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server packages include three Linux distributions that you can pick from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being cost-free, the OSs are really stable and risk-free and the key reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run any app that you would like, as 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 huge community of developers who have made thousands of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to take care of your website hosting content. Also, should you decide that you need another OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the Operating System for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as 3 different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile plans which will enable you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have lots of developers that have created numerous software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a new OS later, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are available for it.
