See how you can transform your server from the beginning with a choice of Multiple Operating Systems.
An Operating System is the fundamental software that manages a computer. It handles the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between various applications, plus the prioritization of apps when multiple ones run at once. Any program which is installed on a PC functions by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be performed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the OS is what runs a web server as well as all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which runs on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in VPS Web Hosting
We provide as many as three different Linux releases for the Operating System of our virtual private servers
- Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the most stable and reliable OSs you can find and we supply all three of them rather than only 1 since we realize that you might want to set up some software which has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a large support community behind it and there are different software programs you may install on the hosting server. Your OS choice will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be installed on the VPS if you wish to use one and because of this we offer several Control Panels as well. In case you decide that you want another OS, our tech support can quickly wipe the current one and set up the one that you need. In addition, we offer an optional service to maintain the OS on your VPS updated weekly.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to get one of our dedicated servers
, you shall find three Operating Systems on the order page as we want to give you a broader choice for the system environment on the server as different apps may have particular requirements. CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian come with different modules developed by their vast support communities, so you can select any of these OSs and benefit from a stable and risk-free Internet hosting service. Depending on your selection, you'll also have different Control Panels to choose from. Needless to say, we can always replace the Operating System if the one you've selected in the beginning doesn't meet the requirements of the software which you intend to run. We can also upgrade your OS routinely to keep it as risk-free as possible with our Managed Services upgrade package.
