Each personal computer or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level software which communicates with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse and a printer, together with any applications that are present 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 OS. On a web server, any application runs within the parameters set by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This goes for both standard site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. If a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you'll be able to set up a different software environment on the very same machine.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as 3 different Operating Systems because we want to give you more flexible plans which will permit you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and secure ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license costs. All three have thousands of developers that have created a huge 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 will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you register. In case you need a new OS subsequently, it will not be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. 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.
