An Operating System is the fundamental software that manages a PC. It controls how the hardware behaves, the communication with peripherals like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, along with the prioritization of applications if multiple ones run concurrently. Any program which is installed on a desktop or a laptop works by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be done through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what controls a web server together with all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. If there're virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages feature three Linux releases which you may select 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 protected and the reason to offer you all three of them is to make sure that you can run any kind of app that you would like, because different pieces of software have different requirements for the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a vast community of developers who have produced many hundreds of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you pick, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to manage your web hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need some other OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer come with three different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile solutions that will allow you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements.
