Every notebook or desktop or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, as well as 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 Operating System. On a server, each and every application runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard website scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called 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 Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as 3 different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile plans which will allow you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have thousands of developers who have created a large number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need some other OS afterwards, 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 upgrading it every week with all patches that are available for it.
