Every single PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, together with any applications that are installed on your system. Any program input using 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, and so on. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, which means that you will be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.
Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting
If you decide to buy one of our virtual private server packages, you'll be able to opt for one of the three Linux releases which we provide for the Operating System of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are among the most well-known 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 in case that you would like to install some application with particular requirements regarding the packages that must be present on the server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one of them you'll be able to use will depend on the OS that you have selected. We leave the chance to replace the server Operating System open, so when you want to use software that requires an OS different from the one you already have, we can always reinstall the VPS. We can also keep the OS up-to-date on a weekly basis by installing all of the security updates that may be available.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The dedicated servers we offer come with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible packages that will permit you to install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have numerous developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you could install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need another OS subsequently, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are released for it.
