Discover which Operating Systems you may run on your server.
An Operating System is the basic software that controls a computer. It handles how your hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, plus the prioritization of apps in case several run simultaneously. Every program that is installed on a desktop or a laptop works by sending requests to the OS for different services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be achieved through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the web hosting field, the OS is what controls a web hosting server together with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application such as a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile packages that will permit you to install and run any web software regardless of 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 kind of license costs. All three have numerous developers that have created a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need a new OS later, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches that are released for it.
