An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer system. It handles the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices for instance a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, plus the prioritization of apps when several run concurrently. Every program that is installed on a notebook or a desktop functions by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be performed through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what runs a web server together with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also any other application for example a VOIP or a game server. If there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions include three Linux releases that you may select from for the Operating System of your new web server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition to being free, the OSs are extremely stable and secure and the key reason to offer you the three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run each app that you'd like, because different pieces of software may have different requirements with regards to the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a huge community of web developers who have made a large number of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. Based on the Operating System that you choose, you will also be able to choose between 3 different Control Panels to manage your website hosting content. Also, in case you decide that you need a new OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
