An Operating System is the software which interacts with the hardware of a computer system and is the intermediary between applications and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, it transfers requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Just like a personal computer, hosting servers also feature an Operating System that serves as a host for any software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etcetera. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so it is possible to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server plans come with three Linux distributions which you could choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being free, the OSs are extremely stable and protected and the key reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you can run any app that you'd like, as different pieces of software may have different requirements when it comes to the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of web developers who have made thousands of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System which you choose, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to handle your hosting content. Of course, in case you decide that you need a different OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible packages which will permit you to install and run any web software whatever its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need a different 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 upgrading it on a weekly basis with any patches which are available for it.
