Every single PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are present on the 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, any app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

If you choose to buy one of our VPS server plans, you'll be able to pick one of the three Linux releases which we supply for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are among the most preferred and most stable server OSs on the market and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine if you intend to install some application with specific requirements with regards to the packages that should be present on the hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one of them you can use depends on the OS that you've chosen. We leave the chance to replace the server Operating System open, so when you want to use an app that requires an OS different from the one you have, we can always reinstall the VPS. In addition, we can keep the OS up-to-date weekly by installing all of the security updates which may be released.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as 3 different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more flexible plans that will enable you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have lots of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you may install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need some other OS subsequently, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches that are available for it.
