Every personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, and 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 OS. On a server, each and every application runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server plans feature three Linux releases that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being 100 % free, the OSs are very stable and risk-free and the key reason to offer all three of them is to make sure that you'll be able to run any kind of app that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements regarding the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a large community of developers who have generated many hundreds 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 select between 3 different Control Panels to control your hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need a different OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the Operating System for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated server solutions that we offer come with three different Operating Systems to select from. They are all Linux distributions - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license fees, but they’re also considered to be among the most dependable and safe OSs. We supply three different ones since each one of them is supported by a separate community. The packages which you can add on your server are different and this may matter in case you need to install some piece of software with specific requirements regarding the hosting environment. In this light, the internet hosting Control Panel which you can select for the dedicated server also depends on the Operating System that you'll pick. You can select any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order process, but if necessary, we can always set up the server once again with an alternative one upon your request. As an additional service that you can add to the package at any time, we can update the OS regularly to keep it as secure as possible.
