An Operating System is the fundamental software that controls a PC. It controls the way your hardware operates, the communication with peripherals for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between various applications, and the prioritization of applications in case several run at the same time. Each and every program which is installed on a laptop or a desktop functions by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be performed using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the OS is what runs a web server as well as 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 are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS which runs on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in VPS Servers
Our VPS server solutions feature three Linux distributions which you could select from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being 100 % free, the OSs are very stable and risk-free and the key reason to offer the 3 of them is to ensure that you will be able to run any kind of app that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements in terms of the environment they can be used on. Each one of the three OSs is supported 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 which you choose, you will also be able to choose between three different Control Panels to handle 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 additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for maximum stability and security.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer come with three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more versatile plans that will allow you to install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have thousands of developers who have created a huge 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 some other OS afterwards, it will not be a problem as we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches which are released for it.
