An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer system. It handles the way the hardware operates, the communication with peripherals like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, and the prioritization of applications if multiple ones run concurrently. Each program that is installed on a desktop or a laptop operates by sending requests to the OS for various services via an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be done using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the web hosting world, the Operating System is what runs a hosting server together with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. When there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS

Our virtual private server packages include three Linux releases which you may select from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being totally free, the OSs are extremely stable and risk-free and the primary reason to offer the 3 of them is to ensure that you will be able to run any application that you would like, because different pieces of software could have different requirements with regards to the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a large community of web developers who have created a large number of software packages which you can install and use on your VPS. Depending on the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to control your web hosting content. Also, should you decide that you need a new OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for max stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more versatile solutions that will allow you to install and run any type of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license fees. All three have a large number of developers who have created countless software packages that you may install and use on your hosting 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 sign up. In case you need a different OS afterwards, it will not be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with all patches that are available for it.
