Every single notebook or desktop or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that interacts with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any apps that are currently installed on your 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 Operating System. On a web server, every single application runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This is valid for both standard site scripts and server-side software like a media server. In case a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two different Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, so you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible solutions that will enable you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have a large number of developers who have created numerous software packages that you may 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 a different OS later on, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. 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.
