Each and every notebook or desktop or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, together with any apps that are currently installed on your 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 Operating System. On a server, each app runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, which means that you'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions feature three Linux distributions which you could select from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being absolutely free, the OSs are extremely stable and safe and the key reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you can run any application that you'd like, as different pieces of software could have different requirements about the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of developers who have produced a large number of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you pick, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to take care of your hosting content. Also, if you decide that you need a different OS, we could always reinstall the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for maximum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server packages that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems to pick from. They are all Linux release - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license taxes, but they’re also considered to be among the most dependable and safe OSs. We provide three different ones since each one of them is supported by a different community. The packages which you can add on your web server are different and this could matter in case you want to install some piece of software with particular requirements regarding the hosting environment. In this light, the hosting Control Panel which you can select for the dedicated server also depends on the Operating System that you will choose. You can choose any of the three Operating Systems during the order procedure, but if necessary, we can always install the server anew with another one upon your request. As an additional service that you can add to the package at any time, we can update the OS regularly in order to keep it as risk-free as possible.
