An Operating System is the software that interacts with the hardware of a PC and functions as the intermediary between applications and the hardware, including peripherals such as a printer, a computer mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, 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). A lot like a personal computer, web servers also use 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, and many others. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment compared to the physical server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

If you choose to purchase one of our VPS server packages, you shall be able to opt for one of the three Linux releases which we provide for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. These are among the most widespread and most dependable server OSs available on the market and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine if you wish to install some application with specific requirements with regards to the packages that must be present on the hosting server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one of them you can use depends on the OS that you have chosen. We leave the option to replace the server Operating System open, so if you want to use an app that requires an OS different from the one that's already present, we can always re-install the VPS. In addition, we can keep the OS up-to-date weekly by installing any security updates which may be released.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible plans that will enable you to install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have numerous developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you may install and use on your web 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 a new OS later, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with all patches that are available for it.
