An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer. It handles the way your hardware behaves, the communication with peripherals including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, along with the prioritization of apps if multiple ones run simultaneously. Each and every program which is installed on a notebook or a desktop operates by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS is possible via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the OS is what runs a server together with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. When there are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more flexible plans which will let you install and run any type of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created countless 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 another OS later, it won't 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 every week with any patches which are released for it.
