Each PC or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the computer hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, together with any apps that are currently installed 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, every single app runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so you can set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

In case you pick one of our VPS server plans, you will have as many as three different Operating Systems to pick from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux releases and we offer them instead of offering just one OS, because the applications that you might choose to run on the server could have specific requirements for the software environment. Each of the three has certain advantages with regard to the available plans that you can later install, but what is common between them is the fact that they are really stable and reliable and have vast communities which support them. The internet hosting Control Panel choices for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, so as to provide you with more flexibility. If you order the virtual server with one OS and you need another one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in just a few minutes. We also offer the option to keep the Operating System on your server up-to-date weekly.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile packages which will enable you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most stable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license charges. All three have numerous developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you can install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a new OS later on, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with all patches which are released for it.
