An Operating System is the low-level software which manages a computer. It controls the way the hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, as well as the prioritization of applications in case multiple ones run simultaneously. Any program that is installed on a computer operates by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS is possible through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the web hosting field, the OS is what runs a web hosting server and all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. When there are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to give you more versatile plans which will permit you to install and run any web software regardless of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license charges. All three have lots of developers who have created a large 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 depends on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need some other OS afterwards, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches that are released for it.
