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

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer come with three different Operating Systems because we want to offer you more flexible solutions that will permit you to install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license costs. All three have numerous developers that have created countless software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need another OS later, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches which are released for it.
