Each desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a mouse or a printer, together with any apps that are present on the 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 Operating System. On a server, any application runs within the parameters established 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. If a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, named 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 Web Hosting

Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux releases that you could pick from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being 100 % free, the OSs are very stable and safe and the key reason to offer all three of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run any kind of application that you would like, as different pieces of software may have different requirements for the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a large community of developers who have generated thousands of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to manage your web hosting content. Needless to say, should you decide that you need another OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As an optional upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated server plans that we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems to pick from. They are all Linux release - Ubuntu, CentOS and Debian, and not only do they have no license taxes, but they’re also considered to be among the most reliable and secure OSs. We offer three different ones as each one of them is backed by a separate community. The packages which you can add on your web server are different and this could matter if you need to install some piece of software with particular requirements for the hosting environment. In this light, the hosting Control Panel that you can select for the dedicated server also depends on the Operating System that you'll select. You can select any of the three Operating Systems throughout the order process, however if necessary, we can always install the server once again with another one upon your request. As an additional service that you could add to the plan whenever you want, we can update the OS regularly so as to keep it as risk-free as possible.
