Each and every PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which interacts with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, as well as any apps that are present 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 server, any app runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etcetera. This goes for both standard website scripts and server-side software like a media server. When a virtual server is created on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, called guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more versatile solutions that will enable you to install and run any web software whatever its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have thousands of developers who have created countless software packages that you can install and use on your 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 some other OS later, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with all patches which are available for it.
