Each and every personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripheral devices such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any applications that are currently installed on the system. Any program input through 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, any app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This is valid for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. In case a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so that you can set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as 3 different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile packages which will let you install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most stable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license fees. All three have thousands of developers who have created a huge number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need another OS later, it won't 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 on a weekly basis with all patches that are available for it.
