Each and every desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software that interacts with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with 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 OS. On a web server, every single application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. When a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so that you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

If you select one of our virtual private server packages, you'll have three different Operating Systems to select from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They're all Linux releases and we offer them rather than offering just one OS, since the apps that you may wish to run on the server may have specific requirements regarding the software environment. Each one of these three has certain pros with regard to the available plans that you can afterwards install, but what's common between them is that they're very stable and reliable and have vast communities which support them. The web hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your OS choice, so as to provide you with more flexibility. When you order the virtual server with one OS and you need another one later, our technical support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in a couple of minutes. We also offer you the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date on a weekly basis.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer come with as many as 3 different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible solutions which will allow you to install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have a large number of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you could install and use on your hosting 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 later on, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches which are available for it.
