An Operating System is the software which communicates with the hardware of a computer and works as the intermediary between all the applications and the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run an application, it transmits requests to the OS using an API (Application Program Interface) and the contact is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Just like a personal computer, web servers also feature an Operating System which functions as a host for the software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be created on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast to the physical server host Operating System.
Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting
Our virtual private server solutions include three Linux releases that you could choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being free, the OSs are extremely stable and risk-free and the primary reason to offer you all three of them is to ensure that you will be able to run any app that you would like, as different pieces of software have different requirements about the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a vast community of web developers who have generated a large number of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to handle your hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need a different OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible packages that will let you install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have a large number of developers that have created a large number of software packages that you may install and use on your server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you register. If you need a new OS subsequently, it won't be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches which are available for it.
